The Clash's Joe Strummer Has Species Named After Him

(Radio.com) No one could have guessed when they started naming living things in Latin that they would run out words and start choosing cute names based on pop stars. But, we have been going down that road for a while now, with Beyonce, Frank Zappa, and Bob Marley all having creatures adorning their names. Now, a punk legend joins the ranks. Now the late, great Joe Strummer of The Clash has been selected to have a snail named after him. And this isn't just some random bit of fandom. The snail actually looks the part, with a spikey shape that resembles the look of many classic punks. "Because they look like punk rockers in the '70s and '80s and they have purple blood and live in such an extreme environment, we decided to name one new species after a punk rock icon," said Shannon Johnson of the Monterey Bay Research Aquarium.

AC/DC Star's Alleged 'Hitman' Speaks Out

(Classic Rock) An associate of AC/DC's Phil Rudd has spoken to the media and denies claims that he was contracted by the drummer to murder a former employee and his daughter as a "hitman." Rudd was arrested by New Zealand police on November 6 and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill, as well as attempting to procure a murder after he allegedly tried to have two men killed; authorities dropped the procure charge the next day due to lack of evidence. The drummer has plead not guilty to the three remaining charges and is expected to face a judge-alone trial, without a jury, next year. Rudd made more headlines following a court appearance last week after a chance encounter with one of the parties involved in the case was determined to be a breach of his bail conditions. The alleged hitman tells the New Zealand Herald that Rudd offered him $250,000 and "the pick" of any of the cars in his $9 million collection to be his bodyguard - not a payment for what police claim Rudd "wanted done" to the former employee.
