FOO FIGHTERS RELEASE MOVIE “STUDIO 666”
LOS ANGELES (AP) – If you were driving around an upscale part of town and came across a river of blood, you might think it was something out of a horror movie. That did happen, and it’s because of the Foo Fighters. Singer Dave Grohl says they filmed their horror movie, “Studio 666,” in a nice neighborhood in Encino, California. He recalls one night after filming, there was fake blood flowing down the street into the sewer. Grohl used to live in the house where they filmed, and the Foo Fighters recorded their “Medicine at Midnight” album there. If you want to visit, it’s too late.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The original “Hot Lips Houlihan” has died. Sally Kellerman who played the character in the 1970 movie about a mobile medical unit during the Korean War died yesterday at her home in Los Angeles.
