Paul McCartney had a little fun on Friday during his rehearsal for the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, which get underway this Friday, July 27th.
During a run through of "I Saw Her Standing There" the power "went out," which led Macca to ask, "Who pulled the plug?" Like Bruce Springsteen did in Dublin last week, he was poking fun at the power being cut during his performance with Springsteen at the Hard Rock Calling Festival in London's Hyde Park on July 14th.
Over 300,000 internet users might lose access to their computers at midnight tonight, because of the the deadline made by the FBI last year to remove spam and viruses ends. Millions of computers were infected with the so-called "Internet Doomsday" virus last November by some hackers. A lot of people got the PCs cleaned, but anyone using a computer still infected with the virus will likely lose Internet access.
Online security firms, Facebook and the FBI are offering free diagnostic checks for users whose computers may be infected. Here are links to several:

You can sample just under six minutes of the new Rush album, Clockwork Angels, a week before its release by logging onto the Walmart website. They have posted 30-second samples of all 12 tracks. It will be out June 12th.
As for the album, their 20th studio effort, drummer Neil Peart writes on his website, "We modestly believe that it represents our best work on every level of our craft, and we sincerely (earnestly) hope other people will agree."
One person who disagrees with them making an album is Pete Townshend, who they met last month in Ottawa when they were presented with the Governor General's Performing Arts Award. He told them backstage that making an album was a "waste of time." They agreed, but said they had to do it anyway. --Sal Cirrincione
