Finger-Syncing, Planned Tour, Entering Rehab, and Entering the Studio



The Red Hot Chili Peppers took a huge leap in their career performing at the Super Bowl with Bruno Mars, and the criticism is continuing to pour in--mainly because there was plenty of fake performing going on. The band acknowledges they pretended to play along to a track they had recorded in advance of the performance. They also said that they decided a long time ago to never do such a thing, but Flea spilled the beans after a few fans noted the band’s instruments weren’t even plugged in. Singer Anthony Kiedis sang the song live, but the rest of the band acted out their parts. Rockers are lining up to call the band out for finger-synching their performance. That’s right, finger-synching. These things are typically done at a large televised event like the Super Bowl Halftime Show as a way to not run into sound problems … I bet GWAR would have played live!


Planned tour


Seether is taking to the road and will be in Chicago May 18th at the House of Blues. The band will be joined by Black Stone Cherry and Skindred. Tickets go on sale February 7th.


Entering rehab


One way to show up to rehab is really, really drunk … but what would you expect from rock mad man Al Jourgensen? The Ministry front man has long struggled with substance abuse, being notorious for using all kinds of heavy drugs. He kicked those habbits a while back but just couldn’t get off the bottle. Before going into rehab earlier this week, Uncle Al took to his Facebook page to sound off on a couple of different things, including the Super Bowl and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death. He actually pronounced he would enter rehab several weeks ago, but noted he wanted to get blasted while watching the Super Bowl. He eventually made it there and noted that he checked in with a .33 blood alcohol level. That’s four times the legal limit. Hopefully he didn’t drive himself to rehab. To stay up-to-date on his progress, check out his Facebook page.


Entering the studio


Speaking of entering things … Papa Roach says they have entered the studio to begin work on their new album, though there’s no timeline on when that will be in front of fans. The band just performed during the ShipRocked Cruise.
