Spoon bassist Rob Pope has quit the band. The co-owner of Harold's in Moorhead, along with Eric Odness, Har Mar Superstar and others cited the wish to spend more time with family and other projects as reasons for leaving the popular alt-indie band. Pope laid down some seriously cool grooves on well-known Spoon songs like "Don't You Evah," "The Mystery Zone" and "Inside Out." Innovative jazzman Kamasi Washington has accused a security guard at a show in Austria of assaulting his father, who is a member of his band. And longtime Montreal resident and Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler is now a Canadian citizen. He'll have dual citizenship, as he was born and raised in Texas.
