I realize that laptops are a staple of the rock star gig bag nowadays (save for Jack White’s), but aren’t they a bit too precarious to be sitting around next to musicians and their supermodel girlfriends? The Mirror reports that Jamie Hince recorded six new Kills songs on his laptop and amid a fight with his girlfriend, Kate Moss, she did to his laptop what Naomi Campbell does to cell phones.
“Kate grabbed his bag and hurled it into the pool,” a source says. “Unfortunately it contained his laptop, BlackBerry and personal diary.” Hince tried to resuscitate the hard drive, but the songs and his Blackberry were lost in the row. Only the diary was saved, which is good to hear because he’ll have a lot to write about! Here’s a suggestion for his first entry: If I record on a 400-pound Studer A80, it is much harder to throw in a pool than a MacBook.
Also, Moss performed an impromptu vocal with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour on Friday at a benefit concert and these pictures of the performance definitely confirm one audience member’s comment that she “really got into it.”
