Love Wants to Produce, More Teasers, New Box Set, and Rock's Glass Dong

Love wants to produce


Not sure if it’s a way to distract people from other films questioning her involvement in his death, but Kurt Cobain widow Courtney Love says she hopes to put out a Cobain biopic soon. In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Love says she wants to begin production on the project within the year and says she’s willing to work with her dead husband’s former band mates. Love also says she wants her daughter Frances Bean to be involved. But, this isn’t the first time Love has batted around the idea of making some Cobain centric production. She talked about making a Cobain musical. Meanwhile, another film that’s outside of Love’s control delves into the mysteries surrounding Cobain’s death, including interviews with investigators hired by Love that question how she may have been involved. Soaked in Bleach still has yet to post a release date, but it’s expected to come out some time this year.


More teasers


Another day, another teaser at Slipknot’s website. The latest footage is much longer and creepier, features some more drum elements and other ambient or ethereal sounds. Head over to Slipknot’s website where you can choose from four different teaser clips. Careful, it’s not safe for work.


New box set


Ozzy fans will have to make plans on picking up Memoirs of a Madman. That box set features a CD full of Ozzy’s greatest tunes. There’s also a DVD set with tons of the dark princes music videos, including live performances dating back to 1981. Expect to pick that box set up this October 7th.


Rock's glass dong


Kid Rock has been subpoenaed to produce a glass sex toy he got as a gift from a former Insane Clown Posse employee as part of a sexual harassment case. The Detroit Free Press reports the wrongful termination and harassment suit against ICP’s Dirty Dan Diamond includes testimony that Dirty Dan tried to give a female employee the piece only to be denied. Dirty Dan then gave it to Kid Rock. Kid Rock has 14 days to turn over the … uh, phallic in question.

Another Onstage Proposal, New Nonpoint Tune, and Corgan Finishes Recording

Another onstage proposal


It’s either really cheesy or it’s super romantic, either way it’s getting in the way of the rock! Another couple got engaged on stage at a rock show … this time it was during an Avenged Sevenfold show in Denver at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. This is a few weeks after a couple got engaged on stage during a Machine Head show. In the most recent instance at the A7X show, the groom-to-be arranged with his now-fiance to watch the band from the side of the stage. While the band took part in the ruse, the groom-to-be took his love out and proposed. Yes, there’s pro-shot video of the proposal, including that of M. Shadows talking about how they wanted to do something different and asked for a volunteer, taking the girlfriend out onto center stage, blindfolding her and then lifting the veil to the groom-to-be. It’s so sweet it makes me want to puke!





New Nonpoint tune


Ready for some new Nonpoint? The band has a video streaming online featuring the new tune titled “Breaking Skin.” This is on the heels of the revelation the band parted ways with guitarist Dave Lizzio and was replaced by BC Kochmit. The change up, and the new song are indications the new album The Return, the band’s eight studio album, will be out soon. How soon? Well, September 30th soon!



Corgan finishes recording


Speaking of new albums … Smashing Pumpkins have announced they’ve finished recording their new album Moments For an Elegy. Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan says Elegy will be the first of two albums the band plans to release and features Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee on drums. Corgan says that the album has big choruses, probing lyrics and odd twists of melody and guitars. It’s unclear when the album will be out, or what a second album will be titled or even recorded, but it’s sure to make any pumpkins fan’s day.

Metallica Outtakes, Fred Durst Directs, and New Album Early Next Year

Metallica outtakes


That funny ESPN Sports Center spot featuring Metallica has some outtakes and you can watch those over and over again online. The spot promoting the ESPN show dropped a few weeks ago to much acclaim. The blooper real shows the same scenes as the actual spot, but alternate lines from the various band members. Start your morning with some ‘tallica bloopers today! However, don’t start your morning with cocaine! That’s one thing the drummer Lars Ulrich gave up a decade ago, because of an interview he read with a bloke from the UK. Lars recently told The Daily Mirror, admittedly an ironic source to share details about a cocaine habit, that he read an interview with Oasis front man Noel Gallagher that inspired him to quit the hard drug. Ulrich said he’s never had an addictive personality so one morning he just woke up and said “enough.”



Fred durst directs


No, it’s not a parody … it’s a real eHarmony commercial and Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst directed it. At first you may think “is this a joke”? which is exactly what I thought, but it’s a legitimate, true-blue commercial for the internet dating website. All told, Durst actually filmed three spots for eHarmony, a couple of which are expected reach a larger audience in August. Durst recently released a short mockumentary he directed and starred in about a evangelical self-help guy.



New album early next year


Ready for some new Three Days Grace? The band is already out with their latest tune “Painkiller” but it will be just a bit longer before they release a full blown album. Bassist Brad Walst reported that the new album is expected to arrive sometime in early 2015. That’s still months away. The band has been hitting the studio when they’re not on the road. Fans checking out a Three Days Grace set this summer may hear some of the new material. Bassist Walst says the new music is quite heavy, sonically and lyrically. Looking forward to hearing more!

New Godsmack Song, Heart Surgery, Canceled Show, and Getting Some Support

New Godsmack song


Godsmack have released a new song online. Titled “Generation Day,” the track will be on the new album 1000hp which comes out August 5th. Front man Sully Erna says the nearly six and a half minute tune has some cool textures and colors and is drifty and trippy, fat and cool … not sure what other adjectives he can attribute to the song, but that’s plenty. Godsmack is out on tour for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival mid August. They’ll be in Peru, Illinois August 16th.



Heart surgery


Drummer Tim Alexander is recovering after suffering a heart attack and then going through surgery. The Primus and Puscifer beats man went through a successful surgery this week to remove a blockage from his heart. Primus posted to their Facebook page that there were no complications from Monday’s surgery and “all signs point to a glorious and speedy recovery.” Primus is out on the road for Riot Fest this September. They’ll be in Chicago September 12th through the 14th.


Canceled show


Ted Nugent ain’t brining his intensities to a Native American tribal area in Idaho after the Coeur d’Alene Tribe canceled an August 4th show. The tribe’s elder described as Nugent’s “racist and hate-filled remarks.” There was no specification for what remarks the Nuge made that tipped the Native Americans off, but they may just be upset that Uncle Ted called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel”. Nugent has since apologized for those remarks and instead called Obama a liar who violates the constitution.


Getting some support


Eddie Vedder is getting some support from Nirvana Bassist Kirst Novoselic. Vedder took to a stage during a Pearl Jam show in England earlier this month for a profanity laced rant apparently slamming the ongoing conflict in Gaza between Israel and Hamas militants. Vedder said that he understands war as a last resort, but there are some people who just want land and will kill for it. Novoselic wrote that our world is more connected than ever before but you have places still building walls. He also says that things can change.
