Davis to Moody: Quit the sause
Imagine one rock star telling another rock star to not drink so much ... that's exactly what Five Finger Death Punch's Ivan Moody said Korn's Jonathan Davis did. In an interview with MetalHammer, Moody said that his family has a history with alcohol abuse and deep down he knew he had a problem, but it took Davis to really get the point across. Moody says the Korn front man pulled him onto their bus one night and said hundreds of thousands of people listen to FFDP and he can make a real impact on their lives and that he loved what he does on stage and with his music ... Davis also said he should quit the sauce. Davis himself has battled addiction. Though he claims to not have had a drink since 1998, Davis did share that he had a problem abusing Xanax, something he actually did a stint in rehab to get over.
Latest Linkin Park video
Chester Bennington isn't letting his work with Stone Temple Pilots keep from his other band, Linkin Park, from putting out new music videos. The latest from Linkin Park is for the tune "A Light That Never Comes." In what appears to be a future world full of holograms, the tune gives LP fans what they expect—a blend of electronica with some infectious riffs. The tune will be available on Linkin Park’s forthcoming Recharged album that drops October 29th.
Live release out now
Ted Nugent’s working his way to becoming relevant in the music world, after spending plenty of time in the political arena. With his new live CD and DVD out now titled Ultralive Ballisticrock, it makes us think of some other live album titles he’s had in the past like Intensities in 10 cities. Very clever, Nuge. Uncle Ted plans to get back into the studio next year to put together a new album. We’re waiting with baited breath … not really.
