There were reports of Axl Rose ready to start drawing off his 401K, or does Guns N’ Roses offer up a pension? … either way, reports were circulating that Rose was going to retire. The band has since come out to squash those reports! Loudwire reports that the band says any talk of retirement is “bullsh*t”. The original report surfaced from Radar Online saying that the band would hang up their instruments at the end of the current Las Vegas residency June 7th. To dispel the rumor even more, the official Guns N’ Roses Twitter account posted a pic of Rose with big letters saying “I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE”.
Taylor roast to air
If you weren’t able to make it to Rock on the Range to see the roast of Cory Taylor, there’ll be video very soon. The Roast on the Range event was the official kickoff for Rock on the Range this past weekend. Taylor got put through the ringer by the likes of bandmate Shawn “Clown” Crahan, Anthrax’s Scott Ian and others including professional comedians. But as is Roast tradition, it’s not just the honorary guest being grilled, it’s also pretty much everyone else on stage. The roast will air in it’s entirety through Howard Stern’s outlets today.

Body Count is back
If you’re in for a racially insensitive heavy metal song from the likes of Ice-T and others, you need to check out the latest video from the heavy metal hip hop group Body Count. Their new song “Talk S**t, Get Shot” features a couple guys in a neighborhood grocery store talking smack about Ice-T’s Body Count project saying they’re a bunch a bitches, and how everyone on the streets listens to Drake. But that’s quickly stifled as the heavy metal hip hop kicks in. It’s worth of view, but it’s Not Safe For Work! If you get caught watching it, you’ll probably have to go through some sensitivity training. Body Count’s unapologetic album Manslaughter is set to be released June 10th. Body Count has been around in some capacity since 1990.
