I will start by saying that although she was not a rocker, I can't doubt or fail to recognise the talent that Whitney Houston had and it was sad to hear that she had passed away this past weekend.
I see now after no previous details were given, that she was found underwater in the bath of her hotel room.
That just doesn't sound quite right, they are saying on one hand that there is no criminal probe to indicate any foul play and then they say there were prescripton drugs in the room, but no more then in anyone's home medicine cabinet ...
Tell me folks, who takes that many prescription drugs to a hotel room?
Very sad ...
RIP Whitney, you were a talented vocalist, even if I have never owned any of your material, but that's just personal taste.
I don't have the full press release - Well, not one that's working for me format wise, but ...

At the time, there was no intention of recording a live album. "It was just a chance to play in the USA for a change, which we don't do nearly enough of," Meros said. "But the venue was already set up for 32-track digital recording and some friends of ours wanted to take a run at recording video as well, so it just kind of fell into our lap."
Meros admits that recording the first show of a tour is not the wisest of decisions in most cases, but for Spock's Beard, it couldn't have worked out better.
"The first couple of shows are when kinks are worked out and we gain confidence playing the set," said Meros. "We figured if we made some little mistakes here and there we could cover them up in the mix, and if the whole thing was horrible we could just simply not release it. But fortunately we had a pretty good show. Rob Aubrey did an absolutely superb job mixing the CD and DVD audio, so it sounds fantastic. The feedback has been great so far."
Spock's Beard has established itself as the crème de la crème of modern progressive rock. Not simply a musician's band, Spock's Beard has also mastered the art of penning catchy, harmony-driven songs that will appeal to any fan of well-written pop songs. The music of Spock's Beard is a reflection of their varied influences, which include classical, pop, rock, jazz and jazz fusion, and R&B, while their intricate multi-part vocal harmonies and use of counterpoint add a whole other dimension.
Mascot Records is an independent record company based in The Netherlands that specializes in guitar music, from metal to instrumental guitar, hard rock, prog rock and (guitar) fusion.
