Music Notes: Aerosmith at Yahoo! Awards

Dave Matthews is getting a double dose of fatherhood.

The singer, who earned a loyal following through constant touring with his band, is the proud father of twin girls. His wife Ashley gave birth to the fraternal twins Grace and Stella last week , according to the singers' publicist.

"We're all gonna learn from the children," Matthews told ABC Radio in May. "[I'm] hoping they'll come out of the womb perfect and spread a little bit of their perfection onto us."

The girls will most likely bring some changes for the singer who formed his band in Charlottesville, Va., in the early 1990s.

The Dave Matthews Bands' relaxed mix of acoustic guitars and horns is typically a fan favorite, with the group ranking among the most profitable tours of the season most years.

Camping Oasis

Americans may be tired of the Gallagher brothers' antics, but don't tell that to the Brits. In the UK Oasis is still a beloved pop band.

Fans camped out for a day and a half to buy tickets to the group's upcoming anniversary tour, with the six concerts selling out in an hour, according to Reuters.

The group was noted for emulating the Beatles sound with hits like What's the Story Morning Glory. Oasis will celebrate its 10th anniversary with the mini-tour at small venues in the U.K.
