Cow girls, cow girls, cow girls … that’s not really what the song’s turned into, but you could only imagine what it’s like when a bunch of country artists remake Motley Crue songs. A whole lineup of big named country acts are collaborating to put their spin on some classic Crue tunes. Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue will feature LeAnn Rimes, Eli Young Band, Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert, Gretchen Wilson, Rascal Flatts and others. Crue bassist Nikki Sixx says the record isn’t for Crue fans, but for country fans who also dig on some rock tunes. For you bumpkins out there, Nashville Outlaws drops in stores July 8th.
Enough for several
We keep hearing more about a new Metallica album. A couple of weeks ago drummer Lars made a baseball reference in saying the band was close to getting a new album done. Then Kirk Hammett came out to back that up. Now Hammett is saying that the band has enough material for a couple more ‘tallica albums. Well, guys … get it together! Let’s hear it! Meanwhile, video posted online show Metallica rocking out AT&T Park during a Giants game. They played their version of the National Anthem to a bunch of baseball fans.
100 days sober
It’s kind of hard to believe that someone who spent most of his career abusing substances could find the time to get 100 days sober, but that’s what industrial godfather Al Jourgensen has done. Taking to his Facebook page throughout the past few months, Uncle Al has updated fans on how longs he’s been sober. Last week marked the 100th day the Ministry front man has been clean. He says he thinks he gets somekind of medallion or special chip or something. Who knows. Keep it up, Al! And remember kids, everything in moderation!
