This seemed to be a week of a lot of big names getting involved in various acts of celebration and controversy. We spoke to Chris Cornell and celebrated the reunions of The Libertines and The Strokes, while sadly celebrating Joey Ramones Birthday. Radiohead entered the studio again, Jack White and Alison Mosshart were part of a rumored scrummage, Trash Talk e-mailed Us, Gonzales broke records at masturbatory speed, and of course we premiered new music. Sharon Van Etten also sang to us in her kitchen; that was nice. Here is The Tripwire week in review.
