Publicity stunt or planned antics


Who didn’t see this coming? Scott Weiland’s solo tour is becoming a sideshow. He’s reported to have challenged a heckling fan to a fight at a recent show in New York (video), plus he’s quoted as having some strange ramblings at a show in DC. The former Stone Temple Pilots front man, something he’ll deny and say was just a publicity stunt to sell tickets to his solo tour (yeah, that makes sense), singled out a heckling fan in New York, saying dude wasted his money to go to the show. Meanwhile Tweets from attendees of a DC show quote Weilend saying he thinks President Obama and news anchorman Peter Jennings are awesome.


Home video of tour


Butcher Babies, the hardcore metal band fronted by two former Playboy playmates, has released a new video showing the band on their recent tour with Marilyn Manson. The video is essentially a home video of them performing on stage to thousands of fans.  Watch that video below or at this link



It's gonna be like The Wall


The forthcoming 3D Metallica movie is gonna be a lot like Pink Floyd's The Wall, according to an actor playing a central role. It's been reported that the movie, titled Through The Never, will be a mixture of live performance footage with a storyline featuring a stagehand. The actor, Dane DeHaan, says in the movie he's asked to go on a task for the band and literally goes through hell to fulfill their request. There's an expected theatrical release date of August 9th.




Weezer is getting ready another cruise. A video (below or at this link) featuring highlights from the last Weezer cruise was recently posted online and it shows fans rocking out to a series of bands while afloat at sea. As of right now, Weezer is the only band on the docket, but there will be more announced soon. The band also announced a private island beech party. The festival-at-sea is scheduled for February 13th thru the 17th out of Jacksonville, Florida to the Bahamas and back. Tickets are $599 and pre-sale kicks off March 20th.  More details can be found here.
