Black Eyed Peas - Page 2
Despite some misleading comments from Kanye West at the Austin City Limits music festival last Friday, the Black Eyed Peas are not splitting, according to frontman Will.i.am. The dance-pop group is taking a break for a while, but will.i.am has assured fans that the hiatus will not be permanent.
When actor Josh Duhamel's hometown of Minot, N.D. flooded back in June, the hunky 'Transformers' star called upon a music group that is very close to his heart -- his wife Fergie's dance-pop group the Black Eyed Peas. The 'I Got a Feeling' hitmakers performed in Minot in support of the Minot Rising campaign, and their benefit concert (in combination with other resources like merchandise sales) raised $1.3 million for the town.
What an unlikely pair -- it's 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' meets 'Elephunk'! At a recent solo concert, Jeff Tweedy, who is the frontman for indie rock outfit Wilco, treated his fans to a Black Eyed Peas medley. Tweedy has strong roots in rock, country and folk, and after watching his comical attempts at covering three BEP tunes, it's clear that dance-pop music is not and never will be his thing.
