Fox chryon says Bret, 47, was rushed to the hospital overnight with an excruciating headache.
God bless him. Saw Poison open for David Lee Roth in the 80s, they were great, their sound system was better than DLRs in fact.

Housing Update 2: ‘Shadow Inventory Dwarfs Loan Mods’; Treasury releases Making Home Affordable status report & NAR figures show median home prices dropped 11.2% y/y
Update: A-HA!! I knew it!! J’accuse Treasury!!!!! Wonder if they are having Fannie/ Freddie HOLD out on those pre-sale foreclosures to avoid asking for ANOTHER 50B right now, dammit! Who knows when the housing market will stabilize? The shadow inventory knows Muuhuuuhaaaaa. Diana Olick has it:
(…) But even more distressing was a report I received today from Lender Processing Services, which is a huge mortgage data aggregate.
Foreclosure inventories continued their upward climb. The nation’s September 2009 foreclosure rate stood at 3.12 percent – a month-over-month increase of 2.6 percent and a year-over-year increase of 88.9 percent. Among individual states, Florida posted the most troubling results with 10.4 percent of loans in foreclosure, and more than 22 percent of loans reported as non-current.
LPS’ October Mortgage Monitor also cites large “shadow” foreclosure and REO inventories. The number of loans deteriorating further into delinquent status is now more than twice the number of foreclosure starts, indicating another major wave of troubled loans in an already clogged loan pipeline. Nearly one-third of foreclosures remain in pre-sale status after 12 months – twice as many as the year prior. The six-month average deterioration ratio has risen the past two months to 300 percent, showing that for every loan that improves in status, three more deteriorate further…

To the outside eye, Joel Reynold seems to have everything. After all, being the owner of a business he built from the ground up – with its patented brand of culinary extracts – should make the Extract King a happy man.
However, if Joel hasnt reached his front door by 8 oclock, hell find his wife, Suzie cinching up her sweatpants and about as interested in him as he is in her mastery of supermarket coupon design.
Sexually frustrated, Joel confides in his best pal, Dean, a barkeep and soon finds himself wrapped up in a convoluted scheme to make Suzie cheat on him first with a dim-witted gigolo thereby allowing him to pursue beautiful new employee Cindy with a clear conscience. Unbeknownst to Joel, the object of his affections is a con artist/sociopath – just one step away from having her parole revoked.
Meanwhile, Joel and his second-in-command, Brian have entered negotiations for a buyout of Reynold Extracts by General Mills. All they need to do is keep things tidy, quiet and moving while waiting for the final offer. Of course, this fails to take into account the employees on the factory floor….
