MONTEREY POP: Day 3 of this theme week is a grab-bag of performances that did not make the original documentary. Monkee Peter Tork introduces Buffalo Springfield playing "For What It's Worth" with David Crosby filling in for the recently-quit Neil Young. This was a source of friction with The Byrds, who can be seen playing "Hey Joe," "Chimes of Freedom" and "He Was A Friend of Mine." That last clip includes Crosby preaching the JFK conspiracy theory that also miffed the others, foreshadowing his departure from the band in the following months. We also have The Association playing "Along Comes Mary," complete with a corny band intro. And Al Kooper gives his organ a workout o­n "(I Heard Her Say) Wake Me, Shake Me."

THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE QUEEN is an alt-super-group featuring Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), Paul Simonon (The Clash), Simon Tong (The Verve), and Tony Allen (Fela Kuti). Their debut album isn't due until the 23rd, but you can stream the whole album now at the TheirSpace.

THE HOLD STEADY and TV o­n the RADIO are two of the bands featured for the launch of AOL's 3x3, with video of performances, interviews and more.

MORRISSEY is in talks with the BBC to write and possibly perform a track for the UK at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest. I'm imagining a morose, yet funny, variation o­n "Bing Tiddle Tiddle Bong."

'SNEAKY" PETE KLEINOW, who co-founded influential 1960s country-rock group the Flying Burrito Brothers, has died from complications of Alzheimer's disease at 72. Kleinow also was a special effects artist and stop motion animator for movies and TV -- both before and after the Burritos -- working o­n every thing from Gumby cartoons to The Empire Strikes Back, Gremlins, The Right Stuff, The Terminator, and Terminator 2. Most of the Flying Burrito Brothers videos I linked last November are still posted o­n YouTube.

INTERNET MUSIC SERVICES: Speaking of which, NPR has a non-audio article o­n music-sharing websites like Pandora, Last.fm, the Hype Machine, and more. The Atlantic has a similar piece, titled "The Digital Mosh Pit." And Spinner recently had an amusing video o­n using the Hype Machine.

L.A. BURNOUT: An Aquarium Drunkard has a three-post series presenting a compilation of songs chronicling the incestuous, late sixties-early seventies Laurel Canyon music scene.

TRUMP-O'DONNELL FEUD: Rosie boiled over the other morning, calling Barbara Walters "a (bleeping) liar," apparently believing The Donald's claim that Walters had told him she regretted hiring O'Donnell. Trump poured fuel o­n the fire in a letter that begins: "Actually, I don't blame you, but in fact she lied to both of us!" However, the feud failed to pump ratings for the sixth-season premiere of The Apprentice.

STEPHEN COLBERT and BILL O'REILLY, otoh, hope to pump ratings by trading appearances o­n each other's programs Jan. 18.

Abdul-Karim Khalaf never acknowledged that there was a Capt. Jamil Hussein assigned to the Khadra station, he confirmed to the AP that there was a Capt. Jamil Ghdaab Gulaim assigned there. And that Capt. Jamil Ghdaab Gulaim still denies being the source for over 60 AP stories from Baghdad (though he probably is).
