Should be sentened to Hell
The former lead singer of Lostprophets has a long vacation planned … 29 years in prison. But it should be infinity in hell! Ian Watkins was sentenced by a British judge yesterday. The judge said that the rock star abused his fame to satisfy his insatiable lust for young children. Watkins pleaded guilty last month to 13 different charges, which included sexually touching a 1 year old, encouraging a fan to abuse her child and make pornography and trying to rape a baby. Are we sure that 29 years is enough for this scum bag? Shouldn’t it be more? Or maybe, like castration or something? A baby, dude? Really? Sick, absolutely sick. Watkins was visibly shaking during sentencing. And he should be … They don’t take kindly to baby rapers in prison. Authorities are looking into whether he had more victims with as extensive a schedule the band had. Remaining members of the band announced a break from Watkins after he was arrested. They should just burn the name, too. It’s ain’t ever coming back, guys.
Jimmy Kimmle Live is proving to be worth watching, as the show knows how to have fun with thrash bands. When Megadeth was on earlier this week promoting their album Supercolider, they decided to have some holiday fun and made a parody video for a Christmas album titled Thrashing Through the Snow, A Very Megadeth Christmas. It’s not a real album, but the video is worth checking out. The video shows the band performing a variety of heavy metal versions of popular Christmas tunes for some freaked out kids. The band then performed “Kingmaker,” which is also available to view from Jimmy Kimmel’s YouTube site.
Stanley book in April
KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame come April and that’s about the same time that co-founder of the band Paul Stanley plans to relese a book. His memoir will be titled Face the Music: A Life Exposed. The book will come out two weeks before the Rock Hall induction ceremony.
