Todd Harrell's mug shot
3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell is having a bad day and it could hamper the band’s planned summertime tour. According to TMZ, he’s been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide. Reports indicate that Harrell was barreling down a highway in Tennessee where he clipped a truck. That truck then smashed into a guardrail, went off the road and flipped. The driver of the truck was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. It’s also reported that Harrell was drinking hard cider and taking prescription drugs. Police say he had a bag of all kinds of different prescription pain killers and psychotropic drugs. The band posted their condolences to the deceased. It’s unclear what the band will do with Harrell as they prepare to take to the road for a tour with Daughtry.
Living the dream
Dave Grohl got a chance to live a dream when he performed with and inducted Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday night. He and drummer Taylor Hawkins took to the stage to perform the tune “2112 Overture” with the band and also gave a speech just before they were inducted. Grohl also said that he hope Nirvana does NOT get inducted into the Rock Hall next year. Even though his original band will be eligible next year, Grohl says he hopes the survinging members will have to wait as long as Rush had to wait to get inducted!
Movie pics posted
Remember that movie starring Godsmack front man Sully Erna we told you about a few weeks ago.
