So, we had a lot to talk about. Since he grew up in Haverhill, I had to ask him his thoughts on the Boston Marathon bombing, we talked music, relationships, Halloween costumes, the debate over dogs wearing clothes, and so much more!
This week has been tough for everyone, but it was especially hard for people born and raised in Boston. To have some that we love so much, like the Boston Marathon tarnished the way that is was this week, could have broken our spirit... But it didn't. Sully Erna (Godsmack) called into the show today, during the manhunt to lend his support to everyone at home!
We have adopted Corey Taylor (Stone Sour/Slipknot) as a fellow Bostonian, and in doing so... We have welcomed him into our family! Today, as Boston was the focus of worldwide news, Corey called to check in on his adoptive family and lend his support!
Corey, thank you for thinking of all of us in Boston, we love you!
I cannot wait to hear the rest of their new album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, especially if Hollow, and Stone are any inclination of how the rest will sound! Those songs ROCK! The Alice In Chains album isn't due out on May 28, so until then... Here are some live versions of the new songs, and a classic thrown in too! Enjoy!
I had a chance to sit down with one of my FAVORITE people last night, Corey Taylor from Stone Sour/Slipknot! We have known each other for years, and we always have so much to talk about! Here are 4 parts to my interview! Lot's of great info on the release of House of Gold and Bones pt. 1 & 2, the comic books, and movies. Plus, his new book, his hot babysitter, and his Disco childhood! Enjoy!
Now David Draiman (Disturbed) with his new project DEVICE, has teamed up with LZZY Hale from Halestorm to recreate the 80's classic. Listen to the "Old" and "New" versions below, and let me know what you think!
Here is David Draiman, talking about the process of recreating the song!
Scott Ian from Anthrax dives head first into the special effects world, getting shot and blown up in the process. Learn what to do with condoms, how to make fake blood, and how to die and make it look real in the video below!
Click here for more details on the new Anthrax album...Anthems
The Dropkick Murphy's are famous for having a stage full of fans, during their live shows! Most times, people behave... This time, a guy thought it was "cool" to start flashing the Nazi salute... That was a bad idea. Kenny Casey didn't miss a "beat"... LITERALLY! He kicked that guys ass!
Check out the video here!
That guy is lucky that Kenny handled it like a man, and did it himself! Imagine the mele if Kenny had asked the crowd to do it for him!
I had to pass this along to all of my other fellow Beatles fanatics!
According to a recent press release...
“Paul McCartney: Carry that Weight” the new comic book out today. The comic takes a snapshot of the afternoon Paul McCartney made the final decision to quit the most beloved band of all time, and imagines the thoughts and feelings behind it. The comic is inspired by the famously frank press release that came with his debut solo album and confirmed the end of The Beatles, and the end of his partnership with John Lennon.
“Paul McCartney: Carry that Weight” is written by Richard Elms and art by Orlando Maro. The new comic features two covers, one by Alberto Pessoa and the other by Graham Hill.
“Only the Beatles themselves will ever really understand what happened at the end, but as a Fan of the Fab Four and their various solo projects, I have spent many an hour imagining those troubled times. Now with 'Carry that weight' I get to present my spin on Paul's feelings at the time, Fed up, tired and in love. This comic is not the truth, it is just a few scenes that could have happened in real life, and have happened in my imagination many times.,” said writer Richard Elms.
To order all the comic books exclusively at Comic Flea Market in print for $3.99 please click here: http://bit.ly/XKXzyo
Bluewater already released a comic book and graphic novels on the Beatles. “The Beatle Experience” is a 270-page graphic novel and “Orbit: John Lennon” is a 32-page comic book. Both are available on Amazon as well as Nook, Kindle & ITunes.
Digital copies will also be available for $1.99. Download the comic to your e-reader from iTunes, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, ComiXology, Google Books, DriveThru Comics, Wowio, iVerse, and more.
Sometimes I see things online, and it scares the hell out of me... This is one of those things. I HAD to share it with you. It's like when someone smells something awful, and they say "Gross... smell this".
As a die hard NIN fan, I really hope that Trent has a sense of humor when it comes to this mash-up of Head Like A Hole, and Call Me Maybe.
I know that he loves it when fans play with his audio tracks, I just hope that this hasn't given him nightmares!
If I have to be subject to this song, I would rather watch this... At least it's got some of our troops, and some cheerleaders!
It looks like 2013 is going to be a GREAT year for music!
Volbeat has a new album coming out on April 9th called "Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies". We should have a new song from them any minute!
NIN announced via Twitter today that they are "back"! Trent Reznor released a statement saying:
"Nine Inch Nails are touring this year. I was working with Adrian Belew on some musical ideas, which led to some discussion on performing, which led to some beard-scratching, which (many steps later) led to the decision to re-think the idea of what Nine Inch Nails could be, and the idea of playing a show. Calls were made to some friends, lots of new ideas were discussed, and a show was booked - which led to another, which somehow led to a lot of shows.
The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014. Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon. -TR
I cannot wait for NIN to come back to Boston... But, in the mean time... Trent will be in town with his other project "How To Destroy Angels" on April 27 at the House of Blues. Click here for ticket info!
And finally, Rob Zombie has a new album coming out on April 23rd called "Venemous Rat Regeneration Vendor". The first single is called "Dead City Radio" and you can hear it by clicking HERE!
Lzzy Hale from Halestorm is riding high right now! The band just won their first Grammy on Sunday Night for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance. Unfortunately for all of us, they don't televise this award anymore... The Grammy's are probably still hurting from the "Jethro Tull incident"...
Lzzy called me today, and I couldn't wait to hear what the entire experience was like for her and the band...
As always, Jason Newsted is NOT at a loss for words. How could you be, when you've lived a life like his. In this interview, Jason talks about his musical history, his inspiration for the new songs, his days in Metallica, and his relationship with his former bandmates. He was also candid talking about his missteps with painkillers, recovering from his injuries, and his new love of painting. Jason Newsted has a true Rock N Roll life story, and he isn't shy about telling it. He is friendly, open, honest, funny at times, and serious at others. His passion and lust for life are evident, and the world is a better place when he is inspired and creating art, in any form.
Thanks for the talk Jason, and I look forward to standing "around the keg" with you!
DEVICE ANNOUNCE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM
COLLABORATION FEATURING DAVID DRAIMAN FROM DISTURBED OUT APRIL 9, 2013
January 14, 2013 - Device has announced the release of its self-titled debut album on April 9, 2013 via Warner Bros Records. Modern hard rock icon David Draiman of Disturbed, co wrote and recorded the album with Geno Lenardo [formerly of Filter].
"It's not metal", Draiman says. "It's influenced by early Industrial rock (I.E. Nine Inch Nails/Ministry) and has a dark electronic vibe. At the same time, these are big, anthemic, and intensely melodic songs. It's futuristic rock."
Upon finishing the writing and recording process, Draiman enlisted Evanescence drummer Will Hunt, and Dope and Rock of Ages guitarist Virus; the three comprise the touring incarnation of Device.
The self-titled album features guest artists like Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion), M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) and Lizzy Hale from Halestorm. First single, "“Vilify"” goes to radio February 19th.
Visit http://facebook.com/devicetheband and http://twitter.com/devicetheband for more info. Tour dates to be announced soon.
Starting at 7:30 tonight, some of the biggest names in music will join together to help raise money for the Robin Hood Relief Fund to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. There are going to be some amazing collaborations tonight, including Eddie Vedder and Roger Waters performing "Comfortably Numb" and Paul McCartney joining the remaining members of Nirvana on stage. And those are just the one's we know about!
Tickets have been sold out since they went on sale, but you can watch the entire show LIVE in the player below!

Well, if the new Rolling Stones video, is any indication of what is going on inside Mick Jaggers mind, it's a scary and perverted place.
No surprise there!
The new song from GRRR!, is called Doom and Gloom and the video... let's just say...
Zombies, puking chicks, boobies, war footage, miniskirts, blood, boobies, chicks roling around in garbage, chicks rolling around in cash, cigarettes, baseball bats, dreadlocks, dirty toilets, boobies, and at the end... Mick turns into a girl!
Brent Smith from Shinedown and I go WAY back...
We've known each other for a long time, we're like a dysfunctional family.
I love it when he calls in, because I never know what he is going to say. We talked about touring, dirty diapers, guns, skydiving, twitter, and The Muppets, with some ball busting mixed in!
Listen to my interview below!
Between 1970-1972 Aerosmith called 1325 Commonwealth Ave home. If the neighborhood didn't know that before, they sure learned that fact today. Thousands of Aerosmith fans stood out in the cold from very early this morning to celebrate the release of Music From Another Dimension, the new album from the "Bad Boys of Boston", which comes out tomorrow. A plaque will be installed on the building, and the bands handprints will be permanently embedded in the sidewalk.
To say Thank You to their adoring, and loyal fans, the band belted out new and classic songs for free, closing Comm. Ave, and shutting down the Green Line this afternoon! That fact didn't go unnoticed by Steven Tyler, as he introduced "Train Kepta Rollin". Also included in the set, "Walkin The Dog", "Mama Kin", "Lover Alot", "Sweet Emotion", "Walk This Way", and "Oh Yeah".
The event brought out the big guns today, with Bob Kraft, Robert Kraft, Tom Brady, and Gerard Mayo introducing the band on stage!
We've been keeping this whole thing a secret for a couple of weeks, and it was nice to finally be able to talk about it! I hate keeping secrets from you!
The day started at the TD Garden, where I hopped onboard a Duck Boat to ride through the streets of Boston with the band. It was crazy to have hundreds of police blocking traffic for us, as we rode through town. That must be what it feels like to win a championship in this town! I guess that's as close as I'll ever get! Thanks Aerosmith!
The band sounded amazing, and they looked like they were having a blast!

Axl Rose stepped out of his house, and showed up ON TIME for a sit down interview with Jimmy Kimmel last night. He talked about his tardiness, voting for Obama, Halloween decorations, dressing up like corn with corn rows, and how members of G'N'R used to work at Tower Records on Sunset where Axl was a manager. Check out the videos below.
Trent Reznor has been very busy! The Academy Award winner for his score of The Social Network, who also scored The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, has just announced a partnership with Beats by Dre, is also getting set to release The Omen EP, the first EP from his post Nine Inch Nails project How To Destroy Angels, which also includes his wife Mariqueen Maandig, on November 13.

2. Ice age
3. On the wing
4. The sleep of reason produces monsters
5. The loop closes
6. Speaking in tongues
Listen to "Keep It Together" below.
November 13 is also the day Call of Duty: Black Ops II hits stores, and Reznor scored that as well. See? I told you he was a busy guy!
My friend Laurie from Warner Brothers just came in to play me the new Deftones song, "Tempest". It's the first single from their new album called "Koi No Yokan", which will hit stores on November 13. The only translation that I could find for the title of the album is this: "Japanese for the sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love." Not sure if that's right, but I like it!
The radio edit is shorter than this version, but check it out and let me know what you think!
The guys from Aerosmith have been hard at work on their new album, Music From Another Dimension for what seems like forever. It's their 15th studio album, and the first featuring original material since 2001. There is a lot riding on this album, to say the least. The date was pushed back to November 6, 2012 after the GI Joe movie was postponed until 2013. Aerosmith was supposed to be a huge part of the marketing for the film. The good news is, it gave the Bad Boys from Boston more time to perfect the new music... and that's exactly what they have been doing in the studio. Check out the first 3 episodes of the behind the scenes making of the new album.
It seems like we can go weeks without a decent release from a band we like. Well, that is not the case today! There is a TON of new music hitting the stores today, and no matter what kind of ROCK you like, there's something for you!.
Papa Roach are back with the release of "The Connection"

It's a busy day for the Soundgarden guys. Today, we get a taste of what the first new album in 15 years is going to sound like with the release of "Been Away Too Long". It's a fitting song title, considering how long it's really been! They said it would never happen... and yet, they have reunited, recorded an new studio album, been part of the soundtrack of one of the biggest movies in history (The Avengers), and are planning a world tour! I guess it happened after all, you liars! :)
Matt has been keeping himself busy during the break up of Soundgarden, with this other band... Pearl Jam. Maybe you've heard of them?
How did the reunion happen? What does the rest of King Animal sound like? Will there be a co-headlining tour, with a Temple of the Dog reunion? Who is Matt's favorite Avenger? How he feels about turning 50? What kind of digs he has? I asked him everything!
He's been called the BullGod, The Top Dog, the Pot God, the American Badass, Bob Richie, and as he is most commonly known... Kid Rock. According to his official website, he's set to release a new album titled "Rebel Soul" on November 19. The first single is going to be called "Let's Ride" and is due at WAAF within the next week.
Everyone has been calling, texting, and emailing from all over the world, asking about the new Soundgarden song "Been Away Too Long". Mike Hsu and I had a chance to hear it last week, and once we sent out a few tweets about it... the questions started. Well, we were told that it was coming sometime this week, but that has changed. Bands have to be ready to launch a new song. They need to have it up online for purchase, because they know that once it gets played on the radio, if it's good, you guys will want to buy it right away. And trust me, you'll want to buy this new Soundgarden. Well, I guess the song hasn't been uploaded to all of the online music sites in time to release it this week, so they have delayed the release until next Thursday 9/27. So, until then... here is the press release with all of the details on the album, and a video teaser to hold you over.
SOUNDGARDEN ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM ENTITLED KING ANIMAL
FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN OVER 15 YEARS DUE OUT NOVEMBER 13TH, 2012 VIA SEVEN FOUR/REPUBLIC RECORDS
Seattle, WA—September 17th, 2012-- Seattle’s Soundgarden will release King Animal, the band’s first new studio album in over 15 years via Tom Whalley's new record label, a partnership between his Seven Four Entertainment and Republic Records, on November 13th, 2012. The album’s first single, “Been Away Too Long” will be available via digital retailers on September 27th. The band co-produced their sixth studio album with longtime Soundgarden friend and producer Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Pearl Jam) and recorded at Studio X in Seattle. King Animal was mixed by Joe Barresi (The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer) in Pasadena, California.
With two GRAMMY ® award wins, seven overall nominations and over 21 million records sold worldwide, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a whole generation and had a revolutionary impact on the course of musical history. At the dawn of 2010, the band, Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd, announced a new beginning. In the last three years since Soundgarden has reunited, they released their first retrospective, Telephantasm, which was certified platinum, their first live album, Live on I-5, penned the end title song, “Live to Rise,” for the feature film The Avengers which went to No.1 on Modern and Active Rock radio, and headlined sold-out shows and festivals around the world. Now, comes the band’s first collection of new songs since the 1990's.
The writing and recording of the album was a true collaborative effort. Riotous album opener and first single “Been Away Too Long” finds Soundgarden back at it with a double-edged blast of homecoming celebration and urban angst. King Animal can be explosive, as in “Blood On The Valley Floor,” nightmarish (“Worse Dreams”) or wistful (“Halfway There”), leading us through changing sonic landscapes that can embrace both the jazz inflections of “Black Saturday” and the feral rocker “Attrition,” with compelling lyrics by bassist Ben Shepherd. The subject matter is broad - Kim Thayil’s lyrics for “Non-State Actor” are a sharp and cynical take on the powers behind political thrones, while Cornell’s bruised and introspective “Bones of Birds” explores the terrors and vulnerabilities of parenthood.
Soundgarden remain a truly ‘alternative’ band as they embark on the next chapter of their journey, steadfast in their roots with 15 years of growth behind them. King Animal follows the musical evolution of one of the world’s most groundbreaking bands. As the BBC put it, they are “a band beyond lazy labels and genre limits.” This is a long awaited return for both the band and fans alike.
When you get offered an interview with Marilyn Manson, you take it because you never know what he is going to say! I've interviewed him a few times before, and this time... he was happy, funny, and playful... All words that normally do not describe Marilyn Manson. Maybe it wasn't even him on the phone! I'm pretty sure it was, because he remembers the interview that we did on his tour bus, during Ozzfest. He was with Dita Von Teese at the time, and she was eating take out at the table, while Manson was... well, you'll hear what he was doing in the interview below. Let's just say that at one point Dita scolded him saying "Do you have to show everyone how hairy you are?!?" Yeah, it was that kind of night!
Tonight, we talked about his balls, his taste in women, his adventures at the airport and on planes, his balls again, Rob Zombie, what he eats, his cell phone apps, his new video, his art work, Halloween, and I'm pretty sure his balls came up again before we said goodbye!
And here is the video for the new song "Slo-Mo-Tion" from the album Born Villain. Watch to the very end, to see the scene on the rooftop that we talk about. He is really lucky, that he didn't get shot by the police!
Dexter from The Offspring, called into the show before the bands sound check at the House of Blues in Boston. We talked about Sports, family, reality TV, flying and skydiving, and how the band has stayed together all these years.
The Brussels Affair, the Rolling Stones’ live album from 1973, is about to have its first ever physical release in the form of a one of a kind box set, hand signed by Mick.
The box set comprises of:
The Brussels Affair on 180 gram vinyl
A limited edition book, hand-signed by Mick Jagger, featuring words on the Stones in 1973 by renowned rock critic Nick Kent (who toured with the band in Europe that year), and rare and unseen photographs by Michael Putland the tour’s official photographer.
A booklet of rare and unseen photos from the Brussels shows by rock photographer Claude Gassian
1973 tour lithograph
A "Tongue & Lips" watch which includes canvas band with steel buckle, Japan Seiko Movement and stainless steel face with brass dial.
The "Art Edition" includes a Silver Gelatin Print hand-signed by the photographer Michael Putland.
The "Platinum Edition" includes the 1973Tour Lithograph hand-signed by Mick Jagger.
In 1973 the Rolling Stones were banned from entering France, due to run-ins with the law whilst recording Exile On Main St in Villefranche-Sur-Mer. This was a blow to the Stones’ hordes of French fans, who would potentially be excluded from experiencing the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band In The World on their 1973 European Tour. That October, the band organized a concert in neighbouring Belgium, chartering a train from Paris to take fans and press to Brussels for two now-historic gigs.
Green Day will release Uno! the first of 3 new albums, on September 25. Check out the tracklisting below.

You know how much I love a good cover song. Here are the details on Re-Machined from the Eagle Rock Entertainment press release!
"Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head album to be released on September 25.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and of Machine Head in particular. Some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head.
Re-Machined features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the “supergroup” Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana&Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.
There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track “Smoke On The Water”, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on “When A Blind Man Cries”, a track recorded at the “Machine Head” sessions but originally released as the B-side to “Never Before”.
Iron Maiden’s “Space Truckin’” cover was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, “Initially we didn’t think we’d be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered ‘Space Truckin’ which we’d recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley’s remixing skills, we’re able to include it on Re-Machined"
1) Smoke On The Water – Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix
2) Highway Star – Chickenfoot
3) Maybe I’m A Leo – Glenn Hughes & Chad Smith
4) Pictures Of Home – Black Label Society
5) Never Before – Kings Of Chaos (Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum)
6) Smoke On The Water – The Flaming Lips
7) Lazy – Jimmy Barnes with Joe Bonamassa
8) Space Truckin’ – Iron Maiden
9) When A Blind Man Cries – Metallica
10) Highway Star – Glenn Hughes / Steve Vai / Chad Smith
Green Day are gearing up to release 3 new albums, Uno!, Dos!, & Tre!
You've heard the first single "Oh Love" already. Check out another song from the upcoming releases... and I'll try not to take their message personally.
You can say what you want about Gotye's hit song "Somebody That I Used to Know"... Love it, hate it, don't get it... whatever.
But what you have to admit, is that it is a HUGE smash hit song for the otherwise unknown singer.
Just in case you live in a cave, here is the original song for you to check out.
That video has been seen over 299 MILLION times on YouTube. Pretty impressive.
Some of those views, would have to be people learning the song, so they could make their own 'tribute' version and load it up online. Well, Gotye noticed how many versions were floating around online, and he did something cool with them.
He made a fan "tribute" video out of his fan's "tribute" videos... I know, it sounds confusing. Watch it below.
I think it's cool that an artist would pay so much attention to what their fans are doing. Some of those versions are hilarious! HI BARRY!!!!!!!
Over the next 6 months, the RHCP will be releasing 18 B-sides from the I'm With You sessions. If you're a vinyl guy like Mike Hsu, you can get them all on 7" with custom artwork from surfer artist Kelsey Brookes.
Mike Shinoda is an interesting guy and he's always willing to talk about anything. He's passionate about his band, their music, and most of all their fans! He called in to talk about the new album Living Things that is in stores now.
We talked about the Olympics, and that Linkin Park has invited all of the members of Team USA to attend Linkin Park shows for FREE when they return from London. And the band even has their own, collectable Transformer!
Yeah, that's what really happens. Even Slash has to go through security. Yesterday, the halls of the offices here were alive with excitement. It takes a pretty HUGE rock star to get the secretaries and accountants excited, and Slash is the very definition of a rock star!
I fetched him some coffee, (see what I mean? I haven't fetched someone coffee since I was Hill-Man's intern in 1993) and escorted him into our video studio, for an extended interview for the website. He complimented me on my hair, and my Harley riding boots, and I told him that his black leather Converse were the perfect choice for Boston, since they were made here. He tipped me off, that reps from Converse were headed to the HOB later on that night, to hook him up with the latest Chuck T styles...
Before the mics and cameras were turned on, he asked me if I planned to ask him any 'uncomfortable' Axl questions. I told him that I had to bring it up at some point, but that I wouldn't be an asshole about it. I know he's sick of the questions, but on Facebook and Twitter our listeners OVERWHELMINGLY told me to ask about it, so I have to!
We talked about everything... How he likes his coffee, everything in his career, the Hollywood star, the Hall of Fame induction, Guitar Hero, his kids, his autobiography, and all of the amazing people that he has crossed paths with over the years. He had great stories about Lemmy, Ozzy, Joe Perry, Fergie, Quentin Tarantino, and even Betty Betty White!
The first of many videos from this interview is below!
Then it was into the WAAF studio, for the live, on-air interview before he rushed back to sound check for the show. He couldn't have been nicer to everyone in the halls. He's a quiet guy, and you can tell that crowds of people freak him out. I guess after years of screaming fans trying to get a glimpse of you, touch you, talk your ears off, you get to be a little nervous. He had someone watching his back every step, until it was time to 'work'... Then, we were left alone to talk.
Below, you can listen to the on air breaks that we did live.
After the interview, we snapped a few pictures, and right before the first was taken, Slash yelled out "Say Herpes". It was hilarious!
That explains the stupid grin on my face. And just like that... he was gone. Headed to 'work'.
Later on that night, I headed to the House of Blues to watch Slash do what he does best... play live.
I was asked to go up on stage and say a few things. For a guy that doesn't like crowds, I can tell you, that the view from a packed stage, is pretty intimidating, and he is in his element up there. I'm used to sitting by myself in the sometimes stinky WAAF studio.
When Slash hit the stage, it had to have been 150* in there. The place was packed! The band was tight, loud, and awesome. The setlist (that Slash worked on in our studio) was packed with new and old songs alike. GNR classics sounded amazing, and the crowd sang along to every word. Lemmy even showed up to do a song with the band!
Thanks to Slash, for a great day and an awesome night!
Do you remember where you were the first time that you heard Guns 'N' Roses? I do...
I was sitting in my parents basement, watching Headbangers Ball on MTV when the video for Welcome to the Jungle came on. Hearing just 5 seconds of the opening riff, it was obvious to me that Rock music had changed forever!
It was loud, and in your face. In 1987 I was really into the 80's hair bands that were all the rage at the time... But GNR was different. They weren't pretty, they weren't polished, they were in your face and if you didn't like it F*CK OFF!
I remember reading about them in Metal Edge magazine, and learning all of their names. I thought maybe these guys are in hiding from the law, because none of them use their real names... Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff, and Popcorn (Steven Adlers nickname).
Shortly after that night in my parents basement, the stories about GNR and their crazy behavior on and off stage were in every magazine, on MTV news, and it seemed everyone was talking about them. Even the album cover pissed people off, and they had to change it.
My Mom heard about it and said 'That's disgusting"... She still says that about a lot of the things that I do, say, buy, and watch. Some things never change.
I wish that I bought the album on vinyl, and I really wish that I had the original version on vinyl... I bet it's worth a TON of money... But, my first and second copies were on cassette. I think I played the first one so much that I wore out the tape.
For a teenage girl in the New England suburbs, GNR taught me a lot about life... I learned what Mr. Brownstone was referring to. What riding the Nightrain was. How romantic guys could be, "turn around bitch I've got a use for you, besides you ain't got nuthin' better to do, and I'm bored". See? Real life lessons... No wonder my Mom said "That's disgusting", she was right, it was... and it was awesome!
Appetite for Destruction was the best selling debut album of the 80's, and one of the best selling Rock albums of all time. Why? Because it's still loud, and it's still in your face. Other bands have tried to do what GNR did. Hell, even GNR themselves have tried to do what Appetite did, and everyone including themselves have failed. No matter the fueds, lineup changes, solo projects, rehab stints, and future attempts at relaunching the band, GNR will always be 5 pissed off guys, holding up a cracked mirror to the world, saying F*CK OFF. Like Marilyn Monroe will always be beautiful, GNR will always be badass.
Everyone has their favorite song off of Appetite, and there is always a story that goes along with it. I would have to say (and yes I am aware that my answer is boring) that Welcome to the Jungle is my favorite. Why? Because every time I hear it, I remember being in my parents basement, watching in wonder, unaware of the world, unsure of my own future and what it would bring. A time when everything was in front of me, and the possibilities were endless. I can't believe it was 25 years ago!
Recorded in Connecticut on November 25, 2011, Live From Mohegan Sun, Staind’s first official live CD, is an incredible performance showcasing the band’s long list of hit songs and fan favorites.

The 17 songs span the gamut of their career including “So Far Away,” “It’s Been Awhile,” “Not Again,” “Falling,” and “Right Here.”
CD is in stores and online NOW. DVD and Blu Ray will be released August 14.

OZZY OSBOURNE - Speak Of The Devil – Live From Irvine Meadows '82 on DVD!!
“Speak Of The Devil” was filmed at Irvine Meadows, California in 1982. The show was part of the delayed continuation of the “Diary Of A Madman” tour following the tragic death of Randy Rhoads in March ’82 in a flying accident during the early part of the tour. The show features guitarist Brad Gillis who was brought in to replace Randy Rhoads. The concert is a perfect snapshot of Ozzy Osbourne’s live performances in the eighties with dramatic staging and masses of energy with a setlist based around his first two solo albums and a few Black Sabbath classics. Ozzy has always been one of heavy metal’s great frontmen and, despite the difficult circumstances, this show captures him at his absolute best.
Line-up: Ozzy Osbourne (vocals); Don Airey (keyboards); Tommy Aldridge (drums); Brad Gillis (guitar); Rudy Sarzo (bass).
1) Over The Mountain 2) Mr Crowley 3) Crazy Train 4) Revelation (Mother Earth) 5) Steal Away (The Night) 6) Suicide Solution 7) Guitar / Drum Solo 8) Goodbye To Romance 9) I Don’t Know 10) Believer 11) Flying High Again 12) Iron Man 13) Children Of The Grave 14) Paranoid
You may not like him... You may not like his music... But, one thing is for sure, Kid Rock can put on a show! Without question, Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker band are one of the BEST live shows out there, PERIOD!
For almost 2 hours, Kid Rock tore through new and old songs, reworking them so that even die hard fans didn't know what was coming up next!
Peter Wolf was introduced as the "Mayor of Boston" and was BOOED until people realized that it wasn't Menino coming out onstage. They ripped through a version of Love Stinks that sent the crowd into overdrive! After the song ended, Kid Rock talked about how much he loved Boston and all of the friends he has here including "Mistress Carrie and everyone at WAAF". It just goes to show how loyal he is to the people that were there BEFORE he was famous!
Tour sponsor Jim Beam and Kid Rock presented a $100,000 check to Operation Homefront which prompted a USA chant that was louder than anything else that night! "America, love it or get the F*CK OUT"! Kid shouted to the delight of the sold out room! The HUGE American flag in the background and a ripping rendition of Born Free were soon to follow! The military should recruit in the lobby of Kid Rock shows, I'm sure a few people would have enlisted after that!
It's more than just a rock show, there are backup singers with dance moves, a percussionist, a sax player, confetti canons, and more guitars and solos than Van Halen could squeeze into a set! It rocks!
But, my favorite part of the show was the tribute to Kid Rock's former band mate, Joe C during 'Devil Without a Cause'.
There's just something about a crowd of people yelling " I'm 3 foot 5 with a 10 foot DICK" that warms the soul!
Don't miss Kid Rock the next time he's in town, or you will regret it!
Is there a place that Dave Grohl doesn't show up? Is there an artist that he hasn't performed with? What could possibly be on his 'Bucket List'? Check out the video of the Foo's performing with Mick Jagger from SNL this weekend!
Tell me what you think? Is is Sabbath without Bill?
"Dear Sabbath Fans and Fellow Musicians,
I sincerely regret to inform you that after a final effort to participate in the upcoming Sabbath shows a failure to agree has continued. At this time I have to inform you that I won’t be playing with Black Sabbath at the Birmingham gig dated May 19th, 2012, nor will I be playing at Download on June 10th, 2012. Further, I will not be playing at Lollapalooza on August 3, 2012.
It is with a very sad heart that I bring you this news. I am sincerely passionate in my desire to play with the band, and I’m very, very sorry that it’s fallen to this. This statement is even more painstaking to write, as I was particularly excited to play alongside Tony Iommi after the recent treatments he underwent. I wanted that to become a reality
To express my thoughts about you, the Sabbath fans, I’m going to speak to you all through an experience my brother James had recently. My brother Jimmy lives in the U.K. When speaking with him a couple of days ago, he told me that an acquaintance had stopped him on the street and confronted him, "is your brother playing Birmingham? What’s going on? I waited in line with my son and paid x amount for the concert tickets."
The man’s son is a young drummer. He’s going to see Sabbath, and he wants to see Bill Ward play drums. Upon hearing this news, I felt horrible. I couldn’t help feeling some resentment towards the failure to reach an agreement, the failure to remember where we came from, the failure to be as brothers, as we once were. To be clear, I’m not blaming the other guys or finding any faults with them. I would think it can’t be easy for them either, but this situation is just really sad. It’s sad that it’s come to this. "This" will surely leave a mark and be unwelcome to the memory. Hopefully "this" will heal and pass in time.
My heart sank when Jimmy told me about this young boy. I know this boy is going to be disappointed, and I don’t know how to amend it, other than to put my arms around the boy and tell him I love him. Sabbath fans have a voice and a face, to me you’re human, you have families and despair. You have ferocity and emotions and graciousness, and at this moment as far as I’m concerned you are also that young boy in England. I don’t know how to amend my part in these failings other than to put my arms around you and say I love you and let you know I’m very, very sorry.
Throughout this process, which began over a year ago, I have had to stand up for myself time and time again. I have had to stand up for myself and in doing so realize my actions indirectly, although unintentionally, are upsetting and hurting a lot of you. I know in my heart I couldn’t have done these concerts by agreeing the terms suggested. I made a solemn vow after the last European and Ozzfest concerts that I would never again enter into what was, in my opinion, a totally unsatisfactory contract. I have to stand for something, and as painful as it is, I’m doing it.
Earlier in April 2012, I’d been asked to participate "minimally" in the Download festival. I believe I’d been offered no more than three songs to play while another drummer presumably played the rest of the show with Black Sabbath. I was not willing to participate in that offer. I was not prepared to watch another drummer play a Sabbath set, while I was to play only three songs.
I found out about the Birmingham gig on Monday, April 30 through the Internet ad. I was taken aback somewhat by the date, and the fact it was Birmingham. Knowing the "signable" contract negotiations were at best in shreds, I was upset by the idea that the band was going to play Birmingham and play it assumedly without me. I had no prior knowledge of the date and location, and I felt totally excluded. We contacted the representative for Black Sabbath to see if something could be worked out. In the meantime my drum crew and I, along with our US endorsers, finished all the necessary planning for a swift departure to the UK. There wasn’t a whole lot to complete; we’d all been on standby more or less since mid-January 2012. The remaining work in the UK was confirmed done by our European and UK endorsers and we were good to go by Friday, May 4 2012. There were two stress points: firstly, getting an agreement in place, and secondly, getting to England in a timely manner. Jetlag time was taken into account as well as drum practice, a drum practice room in the heart of Birmingham, accommodation, and travel arrangements were all in place to meet with any band rehearsals that may have transpired before the Birmingham show. So far everything that had been arranged was on my dime, but we didn’t move ahead without a realistic confirmation.
Communications between the representative and my lawyer continued through the weekend of May 5 finalizing on Wednesday, May 9. The offer we received on May 9 was, "come to the UK, play for free and see how the first show goes." I was tempted. Playing for free would not have been a problem for me, but "seeing how the first show goes" left an element of risk which could have affected Download. My ideal thought was to play in full the Birmingham show, in full Download, and in full Lollapalooza.
I had notified the representative that May 10 was my cutoff day in order to have good lead-in time for England. On the night of May 9 I asked for a brief letter to be sent to the representative asking to find out if we were at an end. On the morning of Thursday, May 10, I received a reply in the affirmative. After consulting with my advisors and crew a decision was made to let go and stop.
I can’t prioritize the Sabbath fans making one show more important than the other. I can’t do that. All of you are important. It’s all the gigs or none at all. I can’t come to Birmingham and "see what happens" knowing there is a risk of not being able to play Download or Lollapalooza. Again, for me, it’s all or nothing. I had to say "no" to Birmingham on the principle of wanting to play all the shows. Saying no to Birmingham is very difficult for me. My family grew up in Birmingham. Black Sabbath grew up in Birmingham. It’s still my hometown and I resent having to arrive at such a difficult choice.
Although the statement was made that, "the door is always open" for me, as explained above, walking through that door is not always as easy as it sounds. There are many complicated issues and unseen and unspoken agendas on hand. I can assure you, my criteria for a "signable" contract is based in mindful principles, respectability, and acknowledgement of my history within the band.
I hold no malice or resentment towards the other band members. I love them; I’m tolerant of them; I’m frustrated with them, as they may be with me. My fight has never been with them. I’ll love them forever. In my opinion, nobody wins this time; the band doesn’t win; the fans for an original lineup don’t win. Nobody wins, nobody. Even the ones who thought they did.
I didn’t want to make this decision, but I have to be honest and transparent. This is the statement I didn’t want to write; it’s the last thing I wanted to do. But, I have written it, and now it can go into the universe.
Since Spring of 2011, I’ve waited patiently and hopefully for a signable contract, you know the rest. I stand for the boy in the U.K., for the coming drum student, for all the drummers, who write their parts out and get stiffed on the publishing, I stand with the Sabbath fans chanting "Bill Ward" and asking "why?" and I stand with Tony and Geezer and Ozzy.
On a final note, even though I’m at an end with the upcoming announced concerts, I will remain with an open mind and a position of willingness to negotiate "signable" terms with Sabbath’s representatives in the future.
With all my heart and strength, I love you,
In 1986, The Beastie Boys released "License to Ill" and changed music forever. In 1986, I was a freshman in High School... and a metal head. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't get the Beastie Boys at first. To me, music was hairspray, lipstick, spandex, guitar solos, and Jack Daniels. What do you want... I was 15! In school, you were what you listened to, and it seemed like all of the 'jocks' liked the Beastie Boys, so I didn't want to. But then something changed. I went to a keg party (yes, I know that I am blowing my role model status by admitting that I drank while underage) and the Beastie Boys came on the radio. Everyone... and I mean everyone was singing along. The Jocks, the metal heads, the preps, the druggies, the nerds, the band geeks, and every other ridiculous clique that exists in High School were all agreeing on one thing... The Beastie Boys!
Over the years, The Beastie Boys reinforced the solid bridge that they had built between music genre's, by releasing hit after hit, and selling out every tour that they went out on. I'll always regret that the Beastie Boys/Rage Against The Machine tour never made it back to Foxboro. That show would have been EPIC! Think about it, Rage Against the Machine probably wouldn't have even existed without the Beastie Boys. Neither would Linkin Park, and countless other artists, who didn't have to be afraid to try and mix styles, because the Beaties proved that it was possible.
They paved the way on MTV, and showed just how powerful music videos could be. MCA organized political rallies and concerts in support of Tibet, and the list of influences goes on and on. 3 guys from NYC, set out in 1979 as a hardcore punk group and ended up bridging Rock and Hip Hop forever.
Last month, the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2012, and I'm just happy that MCA was alive to see it. To see just how much value the music community puts on his, and the other 'Boys' contribution to music as a whole, I can only imagine it was very meaningful to him.
MCA, you like so many before you, have been taken from us WAY too soon. But, your influence and legacy will remain long after we all join you in whatever afterlife exists. Thank you for being on the radio at that keg party when I was 15, and for all of the other great memories that I have with your music as the soundtrack!
This is, and will always be my FAVORITE beastie Boys song!
Reaction to MCA's death was swift and widespread on twitter:
#restinpeaceMCA 1 of my favorite hiphop groups...hiphop raised a lot of us & now we have to wake up because are hero's are dying too younge
Billie Joe Armstrong@BJAofficial
Lollapalooza94 talked to Yauch almost everyday He was full of wisdom & encouragement for a freaked out kid like I was. Thank you MCA. LoveBJ
So bummed about Adam Yauch (mca) from the Beastie Boys passing today! RIP
"License to ill" was the soundtrack of my youth and "MCA" was as much a part of my teenage years as any one of my friends.
LISTENED TO THE BEASTIE BOYS SINCE I WAS A KID. RIP ADAM (MCA) YAUCH. YOU WILL BE MISSED.
Big Daddy Kane@officialbdk
Rest in peace MCA of the Beastie Boys. A pioneer, legend & OG that will be missed.

Rest in Peace to a hip hop pioneer - Adam Yauch aka MCA of Beastie Boys.
For more info on MCA, see below.
Adam Nathaniel Yauch (August 5, 1964 - May 4, 2012) was a founding member of hip hop trio, the Beastie Boys. He was frequently known by his stage name, MCA, and other pseudonyms such as Nathanial Hörnblowér.
Yauch died on May 4, 2012. He announced in 2009 that he was being treated for cancer, but it is not yet known if his death was a direct result of the cancer.
Yauch was born an only child in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Frances and Noel Yauch, who is a painter and architect. His father was Catholic and his mother was Jewish. In high school, he taught himself to play the bass guitar, and formed Beastie Boys. They played their first show — then still a hardcore punk band in the vein of Reagan Youth — on his 17th birthday, while still attending Edward R. Murrow High School in the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn. He attended Bard College for 2 years before dropping out. Two years later, when Yauch was 22, the Beastie Boys, now performing as a hip hop trio, released their first album Licensed to Ill on Def Jam Records.
You know how much I love cover songs already... Just tune in to Under the Covers every weeknight at 9pm!
According to their website, on May 1 the Chili's will celebrate other artists who have been incucted into the R&R Hall of Fame by covering their songs.
