Gettin' too old to tour
Even though there were rumblings of possibly another Black Sabbath album in the future, Geezer Butler says the current tour is probably their last trek. The latest Sabbath album debuted at No. 1 on the charts and has been going strong ever since its release a few months ago. But the current tour may be taking its toll. On the surface, the band has been performing very well. But dig a bit and you’ll recall the cancer battle of Tony Iommi, the drama with original drummer Bill Ward, Ozzy’s relapse and whatever other problems there may be … it’s safe to say that Butler may be on to something when he says this will likely be his last tour. In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Butler says he’s getting old and it’s hard to go out on stage every night, though he also adds that the band is performing very well.
New Buckcherry vid
The latest Buckcherry video has been released. From the album Confessions, the band dropped the new video “Nothing Left But Tears” which is described by front man Josh Todd as “evil, powerful, creepy and fun – it’s an incredible piece of …” art … he said art. The artsy video depicts the aftermath of a murder suicide where one person returns from the dead to walk the pathway to hell and ends up in an “Alice in Wonderland”-meets-“Dante’s Inferno” tea party, according to video’s director. Interestingly enough, the video is the first from the band that doesn’t show them at some point in a performance setting.

Elvis has left earth (36 years ago)
We’d be reminisced if we didn’t mention the King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Presley, died while overdosing on his toilet on this day in 1977. Don’t do drugs, kids. And if you do … don’t do the ones that will make you overdose on the toilet.
