Lambessis pleads not guilty
As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis has pleaded non guilty to solicitation of murder and his bail has been set at $3 million dollars. When free, awaiting trial, he’ll have to wear a GPS monitoring device. Prosecutors say that Lambesis gave an envelope with $1,000 to an undercover cop with instructions on how to kill his wife. His wife, Meegan filed for divorce last year saying he was having an affair, stopped believing in god and spent endless hours at the gym and thousands of dollars on tattoos. Press reports say that Meegan didn’t fear for her life but that she did have concern over Tim’s change in behavior and what that meant for the care of their three children. As I Lay Dying was scheduled to take to the road with Killswitch Engage later this month, but that is uncertain. The other band members posted a statement about letting the legal process run its course.
Dean, Mullin and Blythe for Teenage Time Killer
New super group music project forming
Call it a super group if you want … I’ll just call it one of the most highly anticipated music projects I’ve heard of in a long time. It’s been revealed that Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, Mike Dean and Reed Mullin from Corrosion of Conformity, and others are gearing up for a project called Teenage Time Killer. Blythe posted to his Instagram account a pic of him with Dean and Mullin saying that he was asked to sing for the project, which includes a bunch of different vocalists. More details are sure to be coming out in the weeks and months ahead. We’ll keep you posted.
Velvet Revolver update
Slash has revealed that the super group Velvet Revolver has been secretly looking for a new singer. The cat’s out of the bag, now, Slash, and expect to get a call from former STP front man Scott Weiland as he tries again to squeeze himself into the band!
