Out tomorrow

 

The single “No Reflection” has been spinning on the air now for a few weeks. Marilyn Manson says that making his first album out from underneath Interscope Records was quite a liberating experience. You’ll be able to hear just how liberated he feels when you pick up Born Villain tomorrow. Manson is releasing this album under Cooking Vinyl records and his own company Hell, Etc. Also, out tomorrow is the soundtrack for Marvel’s The Avengers titled Avengers Assembled. The compilation features a ton of great rock music from Bush, Shinedown, Rise Against, Five Finger Death Punch, a new one from Buckcherry, and the new tune “Live to Rise” from Soundgarden, the first song from them in 15 years. I

have a feeling that soundtrack is gonna sell gang-busters.

 

Out later this year

 

It’s not gonna be for a while still but we now know when The Smashing Pumpkins, or rather Billy Corgan, will be releasing his new album Oceania. The long-awaited album should be out June 19th. The release is a grab-bag of different tunes from Corgan’s Teargarden By Kaleidoscope project.

 

Later this month ...

 

Oh, and on the new album front—Great White has a new one coming out May 22nd. The band filmed the video for the tune “(I’ve Got) Something For You.”

The WQLZ Movie Minute?

 

Marilyn Manson is moving from the music scene to the big screen, even if it’s for a short film at a film festival. It won’t be a blockbuster by any measure, but the self-proclaimed film buff will have a starring role in Wrong Cops, a short movie where Manson plays a street hustler. Wrong Cops is being directed by the same guy who made the film Rubber, which was about an old tire that rolled around the southwest and kill people by blowing their heads up—yes, I said an old tire blows people’s heads up. So, you can bet that Wrong Cops is going to be just as, if not more, absurd. Manson says he has several other film projects he’s working on with Johnny Depp and Eli Roth. Manson had roles in other movies like Jawbreaker, Party Monster & Lost Highway, but those were years ago. The 13-minute long Wrong Cops is set to premier at Cannes Film Festival in France. Manson’s new album Born Villain is due out May 1st.

 

Rouge on Rouge

 

Speaking of melding movies and music together, Slipknot front man Corey Taylor sat down with actor John Cusack for a “Rouge on Rouge” interview that appears on ArtistDirect.com. The two talk about Cusack’s new movie The Raven and about the relationship between movies and music.

 

Announced

 

Oh, and real quick … Creed and Theory of a Deadman have been announced in the lineup for the Illinois State Fair. More details on that in the weeks ahead.

White scores

 

It seems to be a trend with rock stars—moonlighting as an artists for motion picture scores. It’s being reported that Grammy winning rocker Jack White will write the score for the upcoming Disney movie The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp. White joins an exclusive club of other rock stars like Trent Reznor who have decided to take up writing music scores for movies on the side. Reznor wrote and performed the scores for two David Fincher movies—most recently The Girls with a Dragon Tattoo. Reznor won an Oscar for his score of The Social Network. The Lone Ranger is White’s first musical score, which will surely get attention. Maybe he can add an Oscar to his awards shelf. The Lone Ranger is due out next year.

Dark grand-princess

 

From one Jack to another, Ozzy’s son has had a baby … or I guess I should say that Ozzy’s daughter-in-law had a baby. That makes the fifth grand-baby for the dark prince, four of which are from Ozzy’s previous marriage. Ozzy and Sharon’s son Jack and his fiancé had a healthy baby girl named Pearl. All the seals have now been revealed. You can expect the end very soon.

They're going on tour

 

The tease was sweet and the delivery was even sweeter.  No, I'm not talking about your date over the weekend ... I'm talking about the announcement of The Deftones and System of a Down ... touring ... TOGETHER!  They only released a few dates (nine all together), but one of those is in Chicago at the Allstate Arena August 15th.  Tickets go on sale next Saturday, May 5th.  Either both bands are revving up for an album, we know that Deftones is, or they're just out to make money.  Either way, this is going to be an incredible show.  Deftones are in the studio finishing up a new album while SOAD is playing some shows, getting back in the grove after a 5 year hiatus.  

 

Back with Leach

 

It's not pro-shot, but all you Killswitch Engage fans are gonna be happy seeing the fresh video circulating the web showing original singer Jesse Leach back with the band.  The video was taken at Killswitch's first show back with Leach from over the weekend at a metal festival in Massachusetts.  It's still unclear if this signals the band's return with a new record featuring Leach.  Leach left the band back in 2002 after several canceled shows due to blowing his voice out.

Pleasant experience

 

Slash admits it … being at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony turned out “to be a really great experience.” The legendary Shredder made the comments in Italy where he’s promoting his solo album Apocalyptic Love. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist said that in the months leading up to the ceremony he had very negative thoughts about the whole affair, but after learning that other former members were going, he quickly changed his tune and said it was a really positive and pleasant experience. Slash was asked about Axl Rose but he responded “I specifically don’t talk about him.” Rose refused to show up to the ceremony and was replaced on stage for the live performance by Myles Kennedy. You can watch the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, with all the performances, on HBO, May 5th. Check your local listings.

 

New album soon

 

We’ve been listening to the sample of Buckcherry’s new tune “Wherever I Go” from the soundtrack for Marvel’s The Avengers. If you haven’t heard it, listen to the sample below. That soundtrack, titled Avengers Assembled, features a ton of other artists and comes out May 1st. Buckcherry is planning to release their own album titled Confessions sometime in September. Front man Josh Todd says it’s “quintessential Buckcherry” and that everyone is going to love it.

Announcement today

 

Over the weekend, rumors of a Deftones/System Of A Down tour were bolstered by pics posted by each of the band’s Twitter accounts. One pic showed Deftones front man Chino Marino holding up a System Of A Down tour pass. The other pic showed the bassist of System holding up a Deftones tour pass. Both pics came with a message that there would be some kind of announcement today. We expect a huge announcement! We’ll keep you posted on that one for sure! System Of A Down has been on a 5-year hiatus but recently played Rock In Rio where they hinted as possibly working on some new music, but no confirmation. Deftones have been touring off and on, headlining and as support for other acts and it’s reported the band is hitting up the studio for a release later this year. The band will record again with Sergio Vega as Chi Cheng remains in a semi-comatose state after an accident in 2008.

 

Gettin' gushy

 

Let the waterworks begin! Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler took time out from being a super busy rock star/American Idol judge in order to sing a song with a 10-year-old cancer patient. Cole Grace, the kid who was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has had several brain surgeries, got hooked up with Tyler via Skype where the two chatted and even sang “Walk This Way” together. During a recent American Idol episode, Cole also got a shout out from Tyler. Doesn’t it just warm the cockles of your heart!  Watch a news report talking about the story below:

Tomorrow's Record Store Day

 

If you’re as confused as I am as to which day is Record Store Day, don’t worry … this will help you out … or maybe not. Tomorrow is Record Store Day. There was just a Record Store Day this past Black Friday—the day that traditionally starts the Christmas Shopping season (it’s OK that I said Christmas and not ‘holiday,’ right?). That was just after Thanksgiving last year … in November. But now artists are revving up for the new and improved Record Store Day with Jack white selling a vinyl single with some kind of gimmick where the disc will have some blue liquid inside. You’ll only be able to pick that up in Nashville at White’s Third Man Records. Other artists will have some offerings at other independent record stores including Ozzy, 311, and Garbage. To find a participating record store near you visit RecordStoreDay.com

 

Dethklok
Real or imaginary, they're still brutal

New season Sunday

 

Honk your horn if you’re a fan of Dethklok! The metal band that inspired the cartoon “Metalocalypse” (or was it the other way around?) has a new season coming out and there will be some special guests voicing characters in the show. Soundgarden and 3 Inches of Blood will join the team for episodes this season which premiers Sunday on Adult Swim. Co-creator and guitarist/vocalist for Dethklok, Brendon Small, has some music coming out you may want to give a listen. Visit BrendonSmall.com to sample some tunes from the forthcoming album Galaktikon.

Dick Clark is dead

 

Dick Clark
Dick Clark ... the early years. Picture from Time

He was called America’s oldest teen. But with the passing of Dick Clark a bunch of people under the age 25 are asking the question … “Dick who?”

 

But really, Clark did have a significant impact on music as we know it today. A ton of artists are coming out to honor the fallen media icon for helping shape the tastes of popular culture but also helping to shape the industry. It’s not just the Ryan Seacrests of the world who are speaking fondly of Clark, rockers from the likes of old-school KISS and even Disturbed are saying nothing but nice things. Paul Stanley says that when he was a kid he would be glued to the boob-tube to watch Clark’s creation America Bandstand. Stanley said that Clark was the face of rock and roll and it’s best ambassador. Disturbed’s David Draiman said “So sad, really thought he might be a vampire. Never seemed to grow old.” Clark died from what handlers called an extreme heart attack. He was 82.

 

Other tid-bits

 

Some other things to tell you about, the video for Chevelle’s “Hats Off To The Bull” is available online for you to watch over and over and over again. System of a Down front man Serj Tankian’s new solo album has a release date. Expect to pick up Harakin July 10th. Oh, and it’s unofficial but Rush may be coming to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis September 22nd. We’ll keep you posted.

For free

 

Soundgarden is offering their new tune “Live To Rise” for free on iTunes. The song will be the title track for the comic book movie Marvel’s The Avengers. Did I mention the song is free via iTunes? It’s either a ploy to get you to update to the latest version of iTunes or maybe they just want you to have the song for free … either way, get over there and download it! It’s free music! Plus it’s the first Soundgarden song in 15 years.

 

Drug jokes

 

During the Rock Hall induction over the weekend – I know, we’re still talking about it – Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum made a comment about drummer Steven Adler’s excessive drug use. Sorum recalled that Slash contacted Sorum to replace Adler because he did too many drugs. Sorum responded saying how that was possible with GN’R. Now, the drummer says it was meant to be lighthearted. He also says that everyone in the band were “full-blown drug addicts” when they split up.

 

Blame daddy

 

Oh, and speaking of substance abuse, Eddie Van Halen blames his battle with alcohol on his father. The shredder told Esquire magazine that he had asked his father how to calm stage fright and his father gave him a smoke and some vodka. That calmed Van Halen’s nerves but also started what Van Halen calls “the whole alcoholism thing.” Way to take responsibility, there Eddie!

No-show

 

Cleveland rocks

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this past weekend was everything you thought it would be: glitz and glam, live performances, and a couple of no shows. There was a bunch of talk in the weeks leading up to the ceremony in Cleveland that there was gonna be fireworks with the induction of Guns N’ Roses. Those fireworks turned out be duds as Axl didn’t even show up. The other members of the band, past and present, showed up including Slash, and they performed with Alter Bridge front man Myles Kennedy singing. When Green Day inducted the band, Billie Joe Armstrong named all the members of GN’R but skipped over Axl Rose saying “who am I missing?” The crowd booed and Armstrong told them to shut up. Later in the ceremony, Chris Rock joked that even if Axl had planned on coming he would not have been there by then poking fun at Alx regular bout with tardiness.

 

Only two Beasties

 

Another no-show was Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys. No reason was given, but Yauch has been battling cancer of the salivary gland. There was not a Beastie Boys performance.

 

Chili Peppers ain't done yet

 

The Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at the Rock Hall induction. Chris Rock introduced the band as the “baddest live band in the world.” Anthony Kiedis said that it’s nice to go into the Rock Hall when they’re still a current band. Kiedis also said that they’re only half-way through their career. Then Flea got all metaphysical saying that when he gets into the groove he gets lost and when he’s lost he is truly free.

Cleveland rocks

 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is set to take place tomorrow in Cleveland, regardless of Axl Rose giving the Rock Hall the big finger. Though Axl has refused to play live there will be other inductees performing including the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Beastie Boys will be inducted as well but it’s unclear if they’ll perform. Axl not only refused to perform live, he’s refusing to accept the award though the Rock Hall will induct him anyway alongside other members of Guns N’ Roses. You can watch the induction ceremony on HBO in May. The only other person to give the Rock Hall the big “F You” was Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols.

 

Francis Bean Cobain all grown up

"Ban Love from Twitter"

 

There’s some bad blood between Courtney Love and her daughter Francis Bean Cobain and it has to do with Dave Grohl. Apparently Love said that Grohl was hitting on her daughter, something Cobain denies. The daughter of grunge legend Kurt Cobain says that her “biological” mother’s accusations are unfounded and there is nothing between her and Grohl. Francis Bean also says that Love needs to be banned from Twitter.

 

Friday the 13th show

 

Slipknot’s Sid Wilson is coming to central Illinois for a show at the Castle Theater in Bloomington tonight. The masked DJ will be unmasked as he performs tunes from his solo album Sid. The show is being dubbed a Friday the 13th night of Dub Step and electronic music.

Axl Rose doesn't want to look back at "old" band

 

Axl being Axl

 

No wonder not many people have good things to say about Axl Rose … Because he’s a bit of a bitch. Apparently, Rose doesn’t plan on going to Saturday’s Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland. Not only is he not attending, he also doesn’t want anyone accepting the honor on his behalf. This all stems from people urging him to play live with the original lineup. Rose says doing so would detract from the current GN’R lineup—a lineup that former drummer Steven Adler called a bunch of hacks and then later apologized. Someone from Slash’s camps says he will attend to ceremony and the Rock Hall says they still plan on inducting Rose with the rest of the group. What a friggin’ joke!

 

Rehearsed just down the road

 

When a band hits the road, they don’t just hit the road. There’s an ass ton of logistical planning that takes place. Plus there’s the stage show to get ready for. It’s a lot to handle and the divas with Nickelback know how to handle it well. They chose to do their rehearsals at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington for two weeks before they took to the road. That was at the tale end of March and the first week of April. It was kept hush-hush for a reason. The “Hear and Now Tour” is set to stop in 49 markets where the Canadian natives are expected to play to packed houses.

 

Speaking of Canadian natives

 

Word now has it that Rush will release Clockwork Angels on June 12th.

Ronnie Montrose (1947-2012) picture from Rolling Stone

It was a gun, not cancer

 

It’s official: Ronnie Montrose killed himself. The official word comes from the coroner as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle. They’re also reporting that he had a blood alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit. The news had originally said that the guitarist had died of cancer, but that truth has changed. There was no note left by Ronnie but family members posted on RonnieMontrose.com that they hope fans understand their desire to keep the “devastating truth” private for so long so people could focus on his life and his music and not how he died.

 

Confirmed for festival

 

If you’re a Sabbath fan, you should make plans to hit up the upcoming Lollapalooza this August in Chicago. The band has been confirmed to play the three day music festival in Grant Park. A US tour was planned, but that has been put on hold as guitarist Tony Iommi continues cancer treatment. Some history: The rejection from Lollapalooza to put Ozzy on the bill 15 years ago is what caused Ozzy and Sharon to form Ozzfest. So things are coming around full circle. Early bird tickets for the show are currently on sale.

Ugly Kid Joe film new video

 

Ugly Kid Joe's "Love Ain't True"

No, this is not a dream … This is reality. Ugly Kid Joe are back together and they’ve jumped headfirst into making a video! The band reunited last year to record a 6 song EP. And since news has gotten out they’ve filmed a video—that means the EP will be out sooner than later. This is a new song called “Love Ain’t True.”

 

Found in the vault

 

The single’s title is a pseudonym for urine (“Piss”) and it was found in Pantera’s vaults for the forthcoming 20th year celebration of Vulgar Display of Power. Vinnie Paul stumbled upon the long-forgotten tune from the original recordings and plans on making it available on this week during an awards show. Be tuned in to the Revolver Golden Gods awards show, streaming on Xbox Live and on Revolver’s Facebook page. The song and video will premier right before the awards show starts at 9:55 on Wednesday (tomorrow).

Oh, and revving up for new Fear Factory, the band has posted a sample to one of the songs from the forthcoming album The Industrialist. Expect that concept album on shelves June 5th.

KISS DWTS

 

Not sure for whom this constitutes jumping the shark, but KISS is set to perform on “Dancing With The Stars” this week. Both shows, tonight and then tomorrow, KISS will be performing a couple of their songs while wearing full makeup. Surely the “stars” will have to dance their best choreographed dance to the styling of “Rock and Roll All Nite.” And “Lick It Up.” Not sure what KISS is doing, but maybe it’s to let all those home-bodies watching DWTS that KISS will be on the road with Motley Crue this summer for what has been dubbed “The Tour.”

 

Chump change

 

Ozzy and Sharon are one home less, according to the Los Angeles Times. The couple sold their five bedroom oceanfront house in Malibu for almost $8 million. When they first bought the house, it was only $5.1 million, so they made bank off it, no question. Who knows what they’ll do with that kind of change.

 

He’s a big boy

 

Oh, and speaking of change … some band-mates of American Idol finalist turned rocker Chris Daughtry have decided they’re gonna sue the “rock star” for not sharing royalties for songs they claim to have helped write. The three band members—the bassist, drummer and guitarists—are suing for fraud and unfair trade practices. All together, they say the band helped write four songs. Daughtry claims to have written the songs all by himself.

One thing that rock stars have been able to do in the past few decades is to revamp some classic tunes with a heavier edge and that’s just what Godsmack has done with Joe Walsh’s tune “Rocky Mountain Way” complete with distorted electric slide guitar, a voice box and a grungy Sully Erna gettin’ into the grove.  The song (which can be streamed onlin here) will be featured on the forthcoming live disc Live and Inspired which will not only feature Godsmack live, recorded in Detroit from their most recent tour, it will also include a bonus disc with a bunch of new recordings including the cover tune “Rocky Mountain Way.” Expect Live and Inspired to be out sometime this spring. Godsmack will join Staind and Halestorm for a tour starting April 13th.

There’s just something about the solid and pure sound that those babies push out. It’s iconic and even though the creator was born in the UK, Marshall has become just as Americana as apple pie and peanut butter. It’s a household name! Well, the creator of those magnificent gifts to the rock world has passed away. Jim Marshall, the Lord of Loud, is dead at the age of 88. The first Marshall amp came out in 1960 and was small and basic but it clearly was a force to be reckoned with. Marshall died at a hospice in London.

Released single into the wild

 

This brings a new level of meaning to the term “record release.” Typically artists will have a party with all their celeb friends mingling, drinking wine and eating cheese. Jack White, on the other hand, does things unconventionally. White’s new song “Freedom at 21” was released … into the wild. NO really, White decided to take 1,000 flexi-discs with the new song and he tied them to helium balloons … then, he released them into the wild. That was Sunday, and it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. He released them in Nashville and one album was found in Tennessee and another in Alabama. White’s album Blunderbuss comes out April 24th. Oh, and all you enviro-nuts—don’t worry, White used biodegradable latex balloons and all natural twine.

Not the original video, but a mirror of just the song. See the entire video with the arrest here (caution, plenty of swear words)

 

"Let me go!"

 

You’ve seen the viral video of 29-year-old Robert Wilkinson being arrested for DUI. You know, it’s that video of him yelling obscenities at the arresting officer. Well, he also sings the song “Bohemian Rhapsody” in its entirety while being taken to the police station. Canadian media reports that EMI Music Publishing has asked for the video to be taken down. That’s fine and all, but people typically mirror these types of videos—that’s why it’s called a viral video--so It’s still out there in all of its drunken glory. Wilkinson apologized to Queen for ruining their song. Don’t drink and drive kids!

Reuniting

 

It’s a family reunion of sorts—but not everyone’s gonna be there. Korn’s Fieldy and former guitarist Brian “Head” Welch are hitting the stage together for the first time in six years. But, it won’t be to perform music. Rather, the two will talk faith and religion. This will take place during The Whosoevers' "Threat To Formalized Religion…I Am" conference in Diamond Bar, California. The Whosoevers are a coalition of rock stars that want to spread happiness, hope and love around the world. Head left Korn nearly 7 years ago saying he was a born again Christian. Fieldy as well is a born again Christian but decided to stay with the band. Find out more about the conference online at TheWhosoevers.com

 

Trouble in paradise

 

Limp Bizkit "posing" like there are not internal problems

There are some signs of a serious dysfunction among the Limp Bizkit family. Apparently drummer Jon Otto and DJ Lethal have become a bit estranged from the band and they came out public saying they may get the ax. In a series of Tweets, Lethal said “From what I understand, Fred doesn't approve of our lifestyle which includes partying and fun.” After fans showed their displeasure, guitarist Wes Borland came out trying to explain the possible changeup. Borland said on Twitter that fans do “not have the information needed to form valid opinions on the situation” and he’s not gonna be the one to make it public. Borland also says to get off Fred’s back because it’s a band decision, not solely Fred’s. It’s unclear what the future holds for the band as they just signed a record deal with no word yet on when a new album may surface.
