first_imgAfter six great performances from rock and roll icons over three packed nights, fans certainly left Desert Trip smiling. Check out a few more videos from The Who & Roger Waters’ final night, as well as their full setlists below.The Who: Roger Waters: Classic rock fans were treated to two amazing performances last night, as Desert Trip came to a close with sets from The Who and Roger Waters. Each artist dove into their repertoires, bringing out hit songs from all eras of their tenure. Any rock music appreciator was certain to be singing along the whole time, basking in the powerful music that both The Who and Pink Floyd have shared over the years.The night started with The Who, fronted by founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. With a stellar backing band that includes bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey (son of Ringo Starr), keyboardist John Bundrick and rhythm guitarist Simon Townshend (the younger brother of Pete), The Who seemed to lock in early with their earliest hit, “I Can’t Explain.” The show took fans on a saga through the band’s career, including segments of songs from the band’s two rock operas, Quadrophenia and Tommy. They ended with two of their most energetic and well-known songs, “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”Watch those two final songs below, courtesy of Fake Fan. Next up was Roger Waters, who had been warming up for Desert Trip with setlists spanning the career of Pink Floyd. His performance at Desert Trip followed suit, opening with the famed “Speak To Me/Breathe” introduction of Dark Side Of The Moon. Waters would ultimately play the entirety of Dark Side during his performance, excluding the instrumentals “On The Run” and “Any Colour You Like”, mixed in with other classic numbers through the band’s career. He played the majority of Wish You Were Here and Animals, as well as tracks from Meddle, A Saucerful Of Secrets and, of course, The Wall.Watch some Dark Side highlights, courtesy of Fake Fan on YouTube.

Akpom completes Hull move

first_img He has also had loan spells at Brentford, Coventry and Nottingham Forest, for whom he featured on seven occasions at the end of last season. Akpom showcased his talents for Arsenal last month when firing a hat-trick against a Singapore Select XI in the Barclays Asia Trophy. Hull boss Steve Bruce has now made four summer signings following the previous captures of Ryan Taylor and Sam Clucas, while the club is expected to complete the permanent signing of defender Moses Odubajo from Brentford. Bruce also remains hopeful of landing Odubajo’s Brentford team-mate Andre Gray in time for Saturday’s opening Sky Bet Championship clash with Huddersfield at the KC Stadium. The Tigers had a reported £4million bid for Gray rejected last week. The 19-year-old has followed Arsenal team-mate Isaac Hayden to the KC Stadium following the versatile defender or midfielder’s arrival in a similar deal on Friday. Akpom progressed through Arsenal’s academy and has made nine first-team appearances for the club. Hull have signed Arsenal’s teenage striker Chuba Akpom on a season-long loan.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Fourth person indicted in 2017 killing of Boca Raton MMA fighter

first_imgA fourth person has been indicted in the 2017 murder of a local MMA fighter.Aaron Rajman, reportedly known as the only local Orthodox Jewish MMA fighter, was shot and killed during a home invasion in July of 2013.On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Cameron Burgess-Clark on charges of first-degree murder and armed home invasion.He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and is being held without bond following a hearing Wednesday morning.It is unclear at this time what role the 25-year-old Riviera Beach man is alleged to have played in the fatal shooting of Rajman.In August of 2017, three suspects, including a 16-year-old old girl, were indicted on charges of first-degree murder and armed home invasion in connection to Rajman’s death.The suspects, Summer Church, Jace Swinton, and Roberto Ortizstole, reportedly broke into Rajman’s Boca Raton home and stole multiple items, including swords, marijuana, a scale, narcotics, and money.Rajman was fatally shot while the robbery was in progress after engaging in a physical confrontation with several men who entered his home around 10:30 p.m, according to PBSO.In July of this year, Church, who was 16 at the time of the killing, and Swinton, who was 18, plead guilty to second-degree murder and were sentenced to 10 years in prison and another ten years of probation.A trial has not yet been set for the case against Ortiz, who was 18 at the time of Rajman’s death.last_img read more

Area Towns Sue TRWA

first_imgMichael Gianforte, executive director of the Two Rivers Water Reclama­tion Authority (TRWA), believes the legal battle between the authority and about half of its municipal customers can be settled amicably.The customers, however, have moved forward and are looking to take the authority to court, alleging overbilling.“Once in a while you have disagreements, you might have to get a third party to say who’s right and who’s wrong and then you get back to having a great relationship,” Gianforte said this week in response to the lawsuit filed by the towns.But attorney John Giunco Jr., representing the plaintiff towns, said his clients had sought to settle through negotiation. “Rather than respond to us, they chose to file a complaint,” Giunco said.Rumson, Red Bank, Sea Bright, Tinton Falls, Shrews­bury Township and Eaton­town and the Eatontown Sewerage Authority filed suit in Decem­ber against the authority, located in Mon­mouth Beach. The suit alleges that since 2006 the authority has overcharged them more than $1.1 million for treatment costs, double billed them $434,000 for unwarranted construction costs, and billed them for services they did not get and were not supposed to receive, according to the complaint filed in the Superior Court’s Chancery Division in Freehold.“There are a number of millions [of dollars] that are in question here,” Giunco contended. He said the crux of the suit “is about the proper allocation of those costs and revenues.”The sewerage authority was established in 1967, creating a two-tier level of service for its members. There are the participant municipalities of Fair Haven, Little Silver, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Shrewsbury Bor­ough and West Long Branch and there are the customer municipalities that are the plaintiffs in the suit.Under the more than 40-year-old agreement, the authority provides wastewater collection services for the participating municipalities. The customer towns “are responsible for owning, constructing, operating and maintaining their own wastewater collections facilities” and then having it move on to the Monmouth Beach authority site for treatment, according to the court documents.Because the two types of customers receive differing levels of service, the intent of the agreement with the authority is “to apportion both the cost of construction, acquisition and financing of the project and the cost of operation of the System on a fair an equitable basis,” the complaint contends.“The Authority is continuing to overcharge Customer Municipalities in this manner, and Customer Municipalities are injured thereby,” the complaint said.The towns in the suit are seeking to “have the economics equalized,” Giunco said. They are looking to have the charges made to their accounts corrected and credits be given where entitled. The attorney said the towns want that “going forward the rates charged will be accurate.”The Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority had won a substantial lawsuit against the design engineer of a pumping station, claiming a defect in the design. The award was approximately $11 million, Giunco recalled. “The municipalities are entitled to it. That money should be redistributed and not held in the authority’s account,” he said.The authority has responded by filing a separate suit against Rumson for nonpayment of repairs to a sewer main. The authority’s participating towns have responded too, filing their own brief, arguing that the existing four-decade-old arrangement is an equitable and fair one.“We are an open book,” Gianforte said, insisting billing has always been documented, “calculated and distributed over the last 45 years in accordance with that contract.“It is very early in the process, very early,” Gianforte said, adding that he remained hopeful “and looks forward to resolving the issues.” By John Burtonlast_img read more
