Take advantage of early music ed

 

Drummer Chad Smith
Chili Peppers Drummer Chad Smith

Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith was in DC testifying to Congress yesterday about the importance of early music education. The longtime drummer said he never got private lessons. All of his music knowledge comes from what he learned in public schools. He also says he met his first girlfriend, a French horn player named Julie, in 5th grade music class. As for making him a better student, Smith says that he wouldn’t have graduated if it weren’t for music classes.

 

Taken advantage of

 

Early music education wasn’t all that glamorous for one rocker. Garbage’s Shirley Manson said last week that she had relations with a music teacher when she was 15. The story goes that he seduced her and took her to his van after class. She’s talked about it before in the past but her most recent comments indicates that the music teacher was doing it to other girls as well. That’s sparked an investigation by the Edinburgh City Council in Scotland. They are now scouring through records from the 80s to find evidence of the crimes.

 

New song previewed

 

Five Finger Death Punch are going to co-headline the Rockstar Mayhem Festival this year and to promote their jaunt, they’ve put out a trailer. The video shows the band performing on stage at a variety of venues. Fans will notice the music in the beginning as hit FFDP songs. But if they watch the hole thing they’ll get a sneak peak at some new music the band will premier out on the road this summer. The band shared during the Mayhem Festival press conference that they’re in the middle of the new recording and the album will be out in due time. Mayhem hits up Tinley Park July 27th.

 

 

New Newsted member

 

Jason Newsted is getting back into it with his new band Newsted. The band released a video not long ago to much acclaim. Now, Newsted welcomes Stained guitarist Mike Mushok to the band. Watch the video below or at this link. There are some festival dates overseas and a new album expected very soon.
