Surely you’ve heard about the Hurricane Sandy relief concert that was held in New York yesterday on 12-12-12. If you didn’t hear, there was a benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy yesterday. The show featured a huge and very diverse lineup of artists from Bruce Springstien, Bon Jovi, Tom Waits, The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Eddie Vedder, and on and on and on. But one major note to pass along was a bizarre performance during Beatle’s legend Paul McCartney’s set. At the tail end of the concert, which was sold out and aired on hundreds of networks all around the world, McCartney brought out Nirvana’s Dave Grohl, Chris Novoselic and Pat Smear to perform a new tune called “Cut Me Some Slack.” Video of that performance is available online.
Heavy Metal, Jedi and Satanism
In other big news, Heavy Metal is a bigger religion in the UK than Satanism, but not quite as big a draw as the Jedi faith! That’s according to The Guardian news outlet. Apparently in their recent census, 6,000 people put down in the slot inquiring about religious affiliation “Heavy Metal” while only 1,893 peopled marked down Satanism. However 176,632 people registered as Jedi. What’s funnier, that people think Jedi is real or that there’s such disrespect for religion!?!

It’s out now, and if you still haven’t picked it up, Metallica is giving you another taste of Quebec Magnetic. They’ve released online yet another performance from the live DVD/BluRay. This time, you can watch “My Apocalypse.” Watch that below or at this link.
