Told ya last week about some new headphones that are gonna blow up the headphone market here in the US, and now there’s word they’ll be getting a launch party for the ages! Motorheadphones, endorsed by Motorhead, have been a huge success overseas and now will be unveiled to the US today at the Consumer Electronic Show, then tonight there will be a launch party in Los Vegas at none other than Motley Crue front man Vince Neil’s strip club. Motorhead’s Lemmy will be on hand to introduce the headphones to the US. More details about the headphones can be found online at Motorheadphones.com.
Laying down vocals
Ozzy is back in the studio laying down vocals for the new Black Sabbath record. I wonder if he’s using Motorheadphones. The prince of darkness posted a photo from his view facing the microphone and a music stand. Guitarist Tony Iomi says the band recorded fifteen new songs as demos. Now they’re in studio putting the songs down for real. This will be the first Black Sabbath since 1978’s Never Say Die. There’s no word on when the album is due out.
