Ironically eerie "I do"
More grizzly details are coming out about the conversation As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis had in an effort to whack his wife. A San Diego sheriff’s officer testified at a hearing yesterday that he met with Lambesis at a book store back in May. That’s where the singer disclosed he wanted his wife quote “gone.” The deputy asked Lambesis directly if he wanted his wife killed and Lambesis said quote “Yes, I do.” Ironically, that’s also what Lambesis said at his wedding to the question “till death do you part.” As for motive, the sheriff’s deputy said that Lambesis was angry that his wife restricted his visits with their children. After again declaring that he wanted his wife dead, the singer handed the undercover deputy $1,000 cash, her name and her photo plus the security code to her condo and dates he would have the kids. The singer will face charges he attempted to hire a hit man to kill his estranged wife in a trial October 22nd.

Remember their roots
Pop Evil’s singer Leigh Kakaty says the band’s home of Michigan is no longer the place they wanted to escape. Kakaty once said that one of the goals of the band was to become rockstars as a way to flee Michigan and only return to stick it to those who annoyed the band. Now Kakaty says that was misguided. Once they found success they also found the strongest fans back home. Kakaty says he admires the likes of Bob Seger and Kid Rock who stay true to their roots.
