Last year, Rob Zombie went all out for Holloween with his Great American Nightmare. Now the horror rocker is expected to setup his Great American Nightmare haunted house in Phoenix from mid-September to November 1st. He’ll actually perform opening night and says he wants it to be above and beyond what it was last year when he debuted the haunted extravaganza in southern California. Zombie will also be out on tour, hitting up Fuel Arena in Grayslake, Illinois July 19th.
Almost done writing
Metallica is 90 percent done writing their new album, according to drummer Lars. This is the latest in a series of updates from the band about the progress of the new album. A few months ago, Lars said that the band was in the fourth inning of creating an album. That would be just less than 50 percent complete if there aren’t extra innings. His band mates have also hinted that the band has a repository of riffs ready to go, they just need to put the pieces in order.
