Drone to the face doesn't stop Bone Thugs-n-Harmony show

The hip-hop rhythms of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are too fierce to be stopped. Even by a drone to the face.

The group was performing at the High Life Music Festival in Victorville on Sunday when a drone buzzed up and smacked rapper Stanley "Flesh-N-Bone" Howse in the face. He winced and grabbed his head, but he and the rest of the group didn't stop the show or even the song.

It's not clear whether a fan, the band or someone connected to the festival had launched the drone, which was about 2 feet wide.

Messages left with police and representatives for the group weren't immediately returned.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, whose other members are Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, Layzie Bone and Krayzie Bone, began in Cleveland in 1993 and is known for mixing singing with rap.

Herschell Gordon Lewis, 'godfather of gore,' dies at 87

Herschell Gordon Lewis, the horror filmmaker known as the "godfather of gore," died Monday at 87.

The director of such films as "Blood Feast" and "Two Thousand Maniacs" died in his sleep at his home in Pompano Beach, Florida, his spokesman James Saito said.

Lewis pioneered the horror genre in the 1960s known as the "splatter film," which intentionally focused on gore and gruesomeness.

His low-cost, envelope-pushing films unabashedly featured blood, violence and nudity.

Other horror films created by Lewis included "A Taste of Blood," ''The Wizard of Gore," ''The Gruesome Twosome," ''She-Devils on Wheels" and "Scum of the Earth!"

Lewis worked in advertising and financed most of his own films.

John Waters, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino and James Gunn are among the modern-day filmmakers who were inspired by Lewis' work.

Gunn posted his condolences on Twitter and said Lewis "changed cinema."

Life-size bronze tribute statue to Glenn Frey now in Winslow

A life-size bronze tribute statue to the late singer-songwriter Glenn Frey of the Eagles has been installed in the "Standing On The Corner" park in Winslow, Arizona.

It joins the statue that many feel looks like Jackson Browne that has stood in the city's downtown area since the late 1990s.

Browne and Frey co-wrote the Eagles' song "Take it Easy" in 1972 that included the lyric "standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona."

Two morning radio personalities from Phoenix classic rock station KSLX — Mark Devine and Paul "NeanderPaul" Marshall — helped fund the $22,000 Frey statue, along with the Standing on The Corner Foundation and the City of Winslow.

Last weekend's installation ceremony kicked off Winslow's annual "Standing On The Corner" music festival.

Devine said in a statement that after Frey died in January at age 67, "we thought a statue would be a great way to pay tribute to his everlasting impact on Arizona's history."

Marshall said "the song has two writers, so we thought adding another statue that will last forever would be perfect."

The statue depicts a long-haired, mustachioed Frey — the way he looked in the early 1970s.

The other statue that resembles Browne is of a man with boots, jeans and a guitar. In front of it is a Route 66 shield painted on the road and behind him is a mural with a woman looking in his direction — a visual reference to the lines in the song: "Well, I'm standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see. It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me."

The origins of the song date back to the early 1970s when Frey was living below Browne in a $60-a-month Los Angeles apartment.

Frey said in a 2003 interview that Browne came up with the Winslow line after getting stranded there once but was stumped on how to finish the verse. Frey suggested the flatbed Ford line, and it clicked.

Shops around the Winslow park display Eagles tour posters and sell T-shirts, magnets and mugs depicting the hit song and its lyrics.
