Sometimes rock stars gotta break things down in the most simple way possible to get fans to understand where they are in the album creation process. Metallica’s Lars did just that recently when he said the band is in the Fourth Inning of the new album process. That’s the fourth inning, not fourth base … just so we’re clear. What’s really fascinating though is how the drummer for one of the biggest metal bands on the planet is a Danish native who came to this country to become a tennis star used a baseball (America’s pastime) reference when talking about finishing an album. Head scratcher …
It’s the illest
Speaking of new albums … It’s sick, man. It’s ill, yo. It’s the sickest, most illest ablum yet. That’s the word from Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix. Loudwire caught up with the Papa Roach front man during the Revolver Golden Gods awards ceremony to find out about the forthcoming album and Shaddix said it’s fiery and the sickest, most illest P-Roach record to date. He guarantees it!
GN’R was late
Apparently we won’t have to wait to see the Revolver Golden Gods awards … or at least some of it. The nearly hour long set from Guns N’ Roses, which featured original bassist Duff McKagan, can be seen online right now. The highlight of the show is right at the beginning when Nicolas Cage takes to the microphone to announce the band to a cheering crowd. That’s the highlight because well before that the stage crew was still doing mic checks for around 10 minutes which means Guns N’ Roses were late to their set. Surprised? Reports indicate some in the crowd actually started trickling out of the venue, but there were a few that stuck around for the set.
Knotfest with Korn and Bizkit
Get over to Japan this fall if you want to see Slipknot, Korn and Limp Bizkit on the same stage. Knotfest, scheduled for November 15th and the 16th in Tokyo will feature all three bands. More could be added.
