It’s not a life sentence, but Metallica did their time in prison … and there’s video (here, here and here)! The band performed their self-titled 1991 EP known as The Black Album backwards in Horsens, Denmark at the Statsfængsel prison. The prison was transformed into an entertainment venue after it closed down in 2006. Metallica currently is on a European trek where they eventually plan to film a concert in 3D. The band has revealed that the 3D movie will be a storyline mixed with live concert footage. No word yet on its eventual release.

Concert video out soon
The first-ever commercially available and band-sanctioned live concert video of Stone Temple Pilots will be released later this month. The cool thing is some of you may be in it! Details revealed that the video is from the March 2010 performance at The Riviera in Chicago. The high-def feature will be released June 26th. The band plans to kick off another tour September 1st to coincide with the 20th anniversary of their debut album Core.
They took his bling
So how much jewelry can a rock star carry around while traveling? Apparently it can be at least $200,000. That’s how much police say Guns N’ Roses front man Axl Rose reported being stolen in Paris this week. Police say that Rose is pretty pissed that three gold and diamond necklaces were stolen during a private party. Rose was not wearing the necklaces at the time, according to reports. Note to self: bling is overrated.
