As former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson continues the promo tour for his book, ‘Letters to Kurt,’ he’s been dropping bombshells about his experiences with the late Kurt Cobain. The latest is both touching and heartbreaking — it recounts what could have been.
Slayer‘s music is certainly meant to be consumed with an accompanying libation. So it’s no surprise that the band has launched its very own brand of wine, much like Motorhead and AC/DC before them. The first beverage in the brand is Slayer Reign in Blood Red. The Cabernet Sauvignon from California is available solely in Sweden right now, so it’s not like you can cruise on over to the local liquor retailer to nab a bottle for dinner. Yet.
Motorhead frontman/bassist (and badass) Lemmy Kilmister isn’t so much miffed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for virtually ignoring his legendary band and not inducting them into their hallowed halls despite the fact that they’ve been rocking since 1975. He’s got an axe to grind with the powers-that-be over a bigger and more important matter. They lost his ‘Ace of Spades’ tour jacket after he loaned it to them for an exhibit. To quote the kids of ‘South Park,’ those bastards!
Vince Neil of Motley Crue is a busy man, as he is anticipating ‘The Tour‘ with KISS, which is set to kick off this summer. But the singer is also preparing for the grand opening of his latest business venture, which is the Girls, Girls, Girls strip club in Las Vegas. If there is one thing Neil knows about, it’s strip joints. He filmed a spot promoting the establishment and in the commercial, he admits to being an equal opportunity lover, er, boss, of the girls.
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.
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.
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.
Happy birthday to Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, who turns 48 today. Even as he approaches the age of 50, the drummer still smashes away at the skins, using his arms and legs in ways that most men his age couldn’t even consider at this point. But he’s still got plenty of gas left in the tank.
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno is once again off the market. (Sorry, girls!) Moreno, 38, wed his longtime girlfriend Risa Mora in a ceremony in the thoroughly romantic locale of Hawaii last week. The couple swapped vows on Wednesday, March 7.
