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!
