Slash is sounding off on what he thinks the verdict should be in the case of Randy Blythe. The legendary guitarist says that the Lamb of God singer charged with manslaughter in Prague is not “in anyway shape or form” guilty. Slash is touring the world in support of his Apocalyptic Love album and he stopped in the Czech Republic to talk with a media outlet. There he said the legal system is so different and commented on Blythe being incarcerated for several weeks, even after paying bail. With the Prague courts being so different, Slash says he’s uncertain what the outcome of the trial will be. Blythe’s trial picks back up in March. He’s accused of throwing a fan off the stage, a fan who hit his head and died days afterwards.
Bieber and Carney
I wonder what Justin Bieber’s lawyers think about The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney hijacking Bieber’s name for his personal twitter account over the weekend. Bieber’s fans didn’t like it much. We really don’t care either way and quite frankly wouldn’t notice if Bieber were to slip into obscurity … but it’s ironic that The Black Keys are quick to sue people who use music similar to theirs but when it comes to actually copying an artist name and using that on Twitter then that’s fair game. OK! We got it! Carney changed his Twitter handle back to normal Sunday.
Proper video expected
We’ve already seen the very unique lyric video for Stone Sour’s latest track “Do Me A Favor,” and now the band says they’ve got a proper video on the way out. Front man Corey Taylor says the animation in the new video is “live action, but it’s painted, so it looks really, really cool.” No word on when the new video will be out, but the album House of Gold and Bones Part 2 comes out April 9th with the first edition of the comic based on the concept to be released April 17th.
