Eight concertgoers died of suffocation at the show… A 21-year-old concertgoer fell 80 feet to his death during the Fourth of July performance of the Summer Sanitarium Tour at the PSINet Stadium in Baltimore, in between sets by Kid Rock and Korn. Police are still investigating the incident, which they are currently calling a "questionable death," and have yet to conclude whether Martin Muscheet intentionally jumped from the fifth story of the stadium's concourse level or whether he accidentally fell over the four-foot tall guard rail… DJ Quik homey Mausberg was shot and killed this weekend in Los Angeles. DJ Quik representatives said they were trying to gather information regarding the murder.

Koda was the singer-guitarist for ‘70s rock group Brownsville Station. The album containing the hit single was produced by current UMG ruler Doug Morris. Though the group disbanded in 1979, the 1985 Motley Crue re-make of the hit thrust the band back into the spotlight. In recent years, Koda released several blues and rockabilly-influenced solo albums, co-authored the 1998 book "Blues For Dummies" and wrote "The Vinyl Junkie" monthly column for various trade magazines. Koda was 51.
