Daily Music Editor
At least we can say one good thing about 1996, the year of
musician overdoses, arrests and rehab: Hootie and the
Blowfish's "Fairweather Johnson" was a flop. No more will
the endless cries of"I Only Wanna Be With You," fill our ears
... instead we can rejoice in the new albums from Silverchair
and Bush. Our excitement should be uncontrollable.
With the new year came a continuation of the drug over-
dose trend that had already claimed the life of Blind Melon's
Shannon Hoon. This year, similar overdoses claimed Brad
Nowell of Sublime and Smashing Pumpkins' tour
keyboardist Jonathan Melvoin. Guess those
boys from Trainspotting were on the right
If not death, arrest was another frequent'
'96 occurrence. Pumpkins' drummer Jimmy ~.
Chamberlain was arrested for heroin posses-
sion and fired from the band, Liam Gallagher
of Oasis was busted for cocaine (though the

charges have recently been dropped) and Stone
Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland, arrested in the past for


heroin possession and thrown in rehab, has recently
canceled his tour in order to, once again, check himself in.
After a somewhat suspicious shooting, questions have been
raised as to whether Tupac Shakur is really dead. Instead, lis-
teners should really be asking themselves if society is better
off without a man who was a skilled rapper and actor, while
still a misogynistic, gun-toting, convicted criminal.
In more pleasant news, after Pulp's Jarvis Cocker antago-
nized Michael Jackson on stage at the Music Awards,
Jackson, perhaps feeling that his masculinity had been
affronted, decided to get married ... again. Though Elvis was

those pointy bullet bras that her mother wears with such
This year's top-selling album was "Jagged Little Pill" by
Alanis Morrisette, a former Debbie Gibson-like Canadian
teeny-bopper. Though Gibson has gone on to perform in Les
Miserables, Alanis is still struggling to appropriately use the
word "ironic" in a sentence. We can only hope that her sec-
ond album will follow in the footsteps of Hootie.

certain to be rolling in his grave after M.J's marriage to his
precious Lisa Marie, the real King can now sleep comfortably
knowing that Jackson has moved on to a nurse who was
rumored to be artificially inseminated with his child. At least
Michael Jackson will now have his own kid to play with.
The man who has changed his name from Prince to an
unpronounceable symbol (written as The Artist Formerly
Known As Prince) has finally settled upon being called mere-
ly The Artist. But, it's still unknown as to whether he'll revise
his symbol to fit his shorter name. While The Artist did man-
age to wed this year (she pointed at her symbol


necklace as opposed to saying his name),
sadly, their first child did not survive. We can
only wait for future offspring to arrive so that
we may hear the titles bestowed by the Purple
One. Now that should be interesting.
Those who thought "Sex" would be the
crowning accomplishment for the Material
Girl were right. Though it was not an immac-
ulate conception (the father is Madonna's per-
sonal trainer), Madonna is now the proud mother
of Lourdes Maria Ciccone. The only question
