It's the age-old Behind the Music story: band members who can't be in the same room. Rumour (from a very reliable source) tells me that Black Eyed Peas' Fergie and will.i.am are in such a bad way, they refuse to appear together, off stage, at press events, etc.
But does it really matter? We don't have to love our coworkers. Mick Jagger is said to be pissed about Kieth Richards' upcoming autobiography. Maybe ask BEP about it at the Palace tonight.
Right now, I'd love to have a few words with the guys doing their soundcheck though. Every time, this is the most annoying part of these Common shows. Windom Earle will just have to drown them out with the party sounds on The Coast's Pride float.
