If you were to plead guilty to hiring a hit mat to kill you estranged wife, what kind of sentence do you think would be handed down? Not sure? Why not ask As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis? The 33-year-old singer was sentenced to six years in prison late last week. The story broke last year when it was reported Lambesis hired what he thought was a hit man to take his wife Megan out … and not to dinner. That hit man just so happened to be an undercover sheriff’s deputy. After a few court hearings here and there Lambesis eventually pleaded guilty and said that he was upset because his wife would get a large share of his income in a divorce settlement. Should have thought about that before you tied the not, idiot. Now you’re in shackles. Work that into a song. Have fun in prison, stupid.
Root out of Stone Sour

AMC to pick up Corgan
Move over Dave Grohl, Billy Corgan is gonna get his own reality show and you won’t have to buy a premium cable package to watch it. But, this reality show isn’t about making a new album, it’s about the Smashing Pumpkins front man’s wrestling league. Corgan confirmed that AMC will pick up on Corgan’s Resistance Pro Wrestling. There’s really no other details at this time, but we’ll keep you posted. It was reported last week that Foo Fighters will be followed around by HBO in an upcoming series as the band puts their new album together in various studios across the country. But, that’s something you’ll have to subscribe to a premium cable service to get. AMC airs on basic cable.
Too much booze
Kids, everything in moderation. That’s the moral of the story after Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley says his doctors warned if he has one more drink he’ll die. Whibley’s been in the hospital for the past month because of the heavy boozing. That kind of lifestyle takes a toll on your liver and kidneys. Take it from Whibley: “drink responsibly. [he] didn’t, and look where it got [him].”
