Looking into 2014, there are some highly anticipated albums we’re holding out for. We’ve heard everything from a new Tool album to new Foo Fighters and Judas Priest, and even possibly Slipknot or Metallica. Those last two, however, may actually come out in early 2015. Either way, 2014 will be a big year for rock.
Soundgarden will be back in business next year as they are lining up shows. One has already been booked for June 18th over in Israel. The band has been on hiatus since the release of the latest album a few years ago and since drummer Matt Cameron has been working with Pearl Jam recording, performing and promoting their new album. Soundgarden will headline a two-day festival along with a several Lollapalooza dates in Chile, Brazil and Argentina in March and April.
Love's Twitter fight
Courtney Love will be in court again, this time it’s over Twitter. The Hole singer and wife of the late Kurt Cobain is on the hot seat again as a series of tweets she put out will be judged by a jury. The tweets were about her attorney Rhonda Holmes, saying that she was bought off. Holmes claims defamation. The trial is set for January 13th. Oh, goody!
