You wouldn’t necessarily know it from listening to songs like ‘The Insidious Soliloquy of Skulhed Face’ or ‘The Master Has a Butt,’ but the members of GWAR are apparently huge film buffs. Well, okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch — but that didn’t keep lead singer Oderus Urungus and rhythm guitarist Balsac the Jaws of Death from reviewing Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ recently.
You really never know what you’re going to get from Axl Rose in an interview, and it seems pretty clear that he isn’t exactly eager to discuss the possibility of reuniting the original Guns N’ Roses lineup for a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next year.
It wouldn’t be a normal month in the news if we didn’t hear at least one off-the-wall story about Courtney Love — and just in time for Christmas, she’s given us a doozy, getting evicted from her New York townhouse for outlandish and destructive (read: totally Courtney) behavior.
Talk is always cheap where Guns N’ Roses are concerned, so if you’ve taken the rumors about Duff McKagan‘s Loaded serving as a support act on GN’R's current tour with a grain of salt, we definitely don’t blame you. But in this case, it turns out that the rumors were true: a little over a year after he made a surprise appearance at a Guns gig in London, McKagan’s crew will be hitting the road in support of the band he quit 14 years ago.
Puddle of Mudd‘s latest album, ‘Re(disc:)overed,’ may have earned the band another Top 5 album on Billboard’s Hard Rock charts this past August, but that doesn’t mean 2011 has been all sunshine and roses for frontman Wes Scantlin — in fact, between filing for divorce from his wife of four years and losing the band’s guitarist, Paul Phillips, something tells us that Scantlin won’t be sorry to see the year end in a couple of weeks.
Remember the spine-tingling thrill of hearing Darkness singer Justin Hawkins unleash his falsetto for the first time on the band’s big hit ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’? It seems like so long ago, for us and for the band, and for good reason: in the eight years since, they’ve been through an underwhelming second album, personnel shifts, drug problems, and a breakup.
Don’t let the name of Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor‘s latest tour fool you — it might sound like an intimate gathering of well-mannered friends, but ‘An Evening with Corey Taylor’ is turning out to be one of the most rock ‘n’ roll road trips of the year.
The Church of Scientology has a reputation for being litigious when they feel threatened, but that didn’t stop ‘South Park’ from mocking them through the entirety of the show’s 2005 ‘Trapped in the Closet’ episode.
According to a document obtained by a high-level former Scientologist, the church didn’t take kindly to being made fun of, and it mounted a secret revenge campaign against ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Before Rooney Mara landed the lead in David Fincher’s ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,’ a long list of actresses were rumored for the part, including Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson.
According to Fincher, it was Scarlett who came closest to winning the coveted role of vengeance-seeking vigilante Lisbeth Salander — but in the end, she was just too darn sexy.
Last month, Primus fans celebrated the release of ‘Green Naugahyde,’ the band’s first new album in over a decade. But to hear bassist and band frontman Les Claypool describe the release, the Primus reunion didn’t meet up to the hype.
“To be honest with you, I wasn’t really that interested in doing it,” Claypool revealed during a recent interview with the Colorado Springs Independent. “I like turning over new rocks, and it didn’t feel like it was a new rock.”
