Current Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal is a forgiving man. Days after former GN’R drummer Steven Adler dismissed the current lineup as a bunch of “hacks” during our interview, subsequently issuing an apology via press release, blaming it on emotion, Bumblefoot responded. H
Buckcherry are working on their latest album and offered not one but two video diaries of the process. The band provided an in-depth, keyhole look at the crafting of songs. They didn’t hide some of the frustrations and arguments that are a result of making music with other creative people. This footage makes you feel like part of the gang.
Motorhead frontman/bassist/badass Lemmy Kilmister, a rock ‘n’ roll outlaw and legend among mere mortals, is known for speaking his mind, albeit in a whiskey-ravaged, gravelly voice. That’s just what the Lemster did in a recent chat with Artisan News Service, which polled fans for questions, selecting two to present to Lemmy for the ‘Ask the Artist’ segment. The first was about Lemmy’s consumption of libations, while the other was about the possibility of reuniting with former members, drummer Phil Taylor and guitarist Eddie Clarke.
Athletes and their fans are a superstitious bunch. They wear “good luck” jerseys, sit on the same side of the couch at game time, put their left cleat on first at all times and the list goes on and on. While in the midst of the Final Four of March Madness, Kansas fans have found away to wrest the spotlight away from Kentucky fans, who are so crazy about college hoops that they are engaging in fisticuffs while receiving dialysis treatment.
Otherwise’s video for ‘Soldiers’ opens with a poignant quote. The words “For the warriors who fight and die… so the rest of us may fight to live” scrolls on screen, and the rest of the ensuing black and white footage features shots of the people who work with their hands, who save lives, who wear uniforms, who wait tables, who fix things, who use stethoscopes and who are generally the threads making up the fabric of this great country of ours. With a twist, of course.
We’ve got good news if you’re a patient fan of blood and guts films, and bad news if you’re not. Philip Anselmo, a renowned horror hound who absolutely loves that film genre, will launch his first-ever Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, Texas. However, the festival, named after the singer’s label, is scheduled for October 2013.
Last week, Kittie posed a bit of a philosophical question to fans via their social media networks. The ladies asked if their supporters would be interested in seeing the band play its debut, 1999′s ‘Spit,’ which was easily their most commercially successful album to date, with the original lineup. Seems like a no brainer, right?
Lacuna Coil continue to issue personal updates informing fans of what’s going on in their world. The latest came in the form of a two-minute video courtesy of beautiful frontwoman Cristina Scabbia. The lovely singer filmed the clip while getting ready for a gig in Sardinia. She was sequestered in the bathroom while she shared some news about the band’s forthcoming Dark Legacy tour.
Don’t blink or you might miss something! Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst shared a 14-second video of guitarist Wes Borland riffing on his guitar. It’s incredibly short but it’s also an organic look at the band as it works on new material for its forthcoming debut for Cash Money after a long career on Interscope. It’s the right label digs for the band, since Durst and co. have been meshing rap and rock seamlessly for years. The formula has served the Bizkit well.
Everyone in the rock community is talking about the upcoming tour that Motley Crue and Kiss will embark on this summer. Billed simply as ‘The Tour,’ it’s going to be quite a spectacle, since both bands are known for “bringing it” in the live realm and having massive stage set ups. The bands did promise that each will be afforded ample opportunity to deliver two completely different, standalone shows, with Kiss frontman Paul Stanley declaring, “It’s not half-Motley, half-Kiss.” It’s full on for both — separate but equal.
