  1. Saptarshi Bandyopadhyay:

    Saptarshi Bandyopadhyay wrote in the proposal. Notional view of LCRT on the far-side of the Moon. ( Courtesy of Saptarshi Bandyopadhyay)( Saptarshi Bandyopadhyay) LCRT could enable tremendous scientific discoveries in the field of cosmology by observing the early universe in the 1050m wavelength band( i.e., 630MHz frequency band), which has not been explored by humans to date.

  2. Noel Monk:

    Eddie was having a lot of problems at that time, after they got married, he had drank too much, he had done too much. They went from the church to the reception. It was a beautiful mansion with wonderful people, but I couldn’t find Eddie. I couldn’t find Valerie. So I went looking for them and found them in the bathroom upstairs… Valerie was soothing him. It was certainly understandable. It didn’t impact their marriage. It certainly didn’t dictate the way things might turned out.’ The marriage lasted for almost two decades until their divorce in 2007, but the band was crumbling much sooner than that. There were mountains of cocaine and ever-flowing booze involved, but Van Halen was also led by a flamboyant singer with a fearsome Jekyll and Hyde personality. David Lee Roth in London. (Courtesy of Noel Monk).

  3. Keith Richards:

    Stadiums, I love them, especially when the weather's on our side, when God joins the band, it's really nice to play indoors and auditoriums with a controlled environment, but at the same time, it's a different feeling playing outside, especially stadiums ... It's a looser feeling. Pre-sale tickets went on sale Wednesday and general tickets start Monday. The tour also celebrates the June 9 re-release of the Stones' seminal 1971 album.

  4. Brian Littrell:

    From 1992 to 2002, we were the biggest band in the world, no one thought it was going to be as big as it was. Then it just stopped. And what do you do when you're a full grown man in a boy band?

  5. Palmetto Ridge:

    I've never seen them so happy. The mood at Palmetto Ridge is in contrast to some other bands and performers who are refusing to attend for political reasons. Not one Washington, D.C., high school marching band will be in Trump’s Inauguration Day parade, the first time that has happened in six inaugurations. There are also online petitions gathering signatures to urge some marching bands to drop out, like the University of Tennessee-Knoxville’s and the Talladega College Band in Alabama. I don't look at it as a political issue.
