Well, he did it. Andrew W.K. drummed for 24 hours yesterday and he says his heart rings as much as his ears do. The day-long drumming stunt was done in conjunction with MTV’s O Music Awards. Some of the guests he had pop in and drum with him include Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers fame, Marky Ramone from The Ramones, and even actor Cuba Gooding Junior showed up to provide some cowbell action. As for some of the winners of the awards, Jack White got the Analog Genius award because he loves vinyl, Linkin Park got Best Interactive and Andrew W.K. won for Must-Follow Artist on Twitter.

Ozzy says he wants Bill Ward to be part of the next album … if there is another album. Black Sabbath is coming off the very successful launch of their most recent album … the first featuring Ozzy in decades. Original Drummer Bill Ward was supposed to be with the reunited band but there were some contract issues. Ozzy NME that it’s possible a new album could be in the band’s future and he’d love to have Ward back on. Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk recorded with Sabbath and is also out on tour with the band.
New video out
It’s an infectious song and also the title track for their most recent album … now it has a video. The Dillinger Escape Plan has released the video for the song “One Of Us Is The Killer.” The chaos-core band went a bit mellower for the title track, and it’s definitely worth a bunch of listens.
