Fly on the Wall 1372 

Elvis stamps and metal hair

Neverending Elvis

This is such an honor. The U.S. Postal Service is honoring your Pesky Fly and the whole Fly on the Wall Team by issuing a Neverending Elvis stamp commemorating one of this column's most enduring and best-loved features. Okay, okay, it's technically an Elvis-themed "forever" stamp, but that's almost the same thing, right?

The USPS will dedicate the new stamp on Wednesday, August 12th at Graceland during Elvis Week. Can we get a "Glory, glory Hallelujah?" Thankyavurrymush.

Hair Metal

Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer told the Swedish music website "Access: Rock" why the metal band bailed on their gig at the Beale Street Music Festival after only six songs, leaving frontman Ivan Moody to jibber away onstage, alone. "There's thousands of people there, and we're trying to get these sound issues sorted out," Spencer explained. "We kind of had a little bit of a fight in front of everyone, and we didn't mean for that to happen." One commenter helpfully suggested, in the future, the band might want to, "Spend more time before the show working out sound equipment issues instead of those stupid hairdos. Your call!"
