Red Hot Halftime Act
The Super Bowl halftime show just got a little more interesting, and may be worth watching this year. Joining Bruno Mars will be The Red Hot Chili Peppers! It was announced over the weekend by Bruno during a pre-game show. Now, typically non-football fans have tuned in to the Super Bowl in the past few years to see the spectacle that is the Super Bowl halftime show. It’s a phenomenon that seemed to pick up steam back in the Janet Jackson nip-slip days and was made even more bizarre by Modonna’s parade of satanic imigery. Now we’ll be able to see some weird conglomeration of Bruno Mars’ and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ tunes. Now if they lip sync, I’m gonna throw my beer at the TV. Just sayin’.
New album out April 1
If you’ve been waiting for the latest updates on when you can pick up a new Steel Panthers album, you’ll be able to do that on April Fools’ Day. The album All You Can Eat will feature 12 new tunes, including song titles I probably can’t say on the air.
Also out April 1
Lacuna Coil have their new album planned. They’ll drop their next attempt Broken Crown Halo on the world April 1st. This is despite having some personal issues as of late. The band had to pull out of ShipRocked 2014 because of “very serious personal family matters.” But with a new album and a plan to tour the Revolver’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour with Sick Puppies, Eyes Set to Kill and others, 2014 may be a banner year.
Leto’s Golden Globe
Who cares about the Golden Globes? 30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto does. The rocker/actor picked up a Golden Globe for his role as a transgendered AIDS patient named Rayon in the movie Dallas Buyers Club. The category he scored that award in is Best Supporting Actor. That was Leto’s first major acting gig in a while and he came back in true form, playing a role that many would stray from. Now get back behind the guitar and mic!
