New Crue tune coming
It’s very likely Motley Crue will feature a new song when they take to the road this summer. Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars were hanging out at Guitar World magazine and they discussed their plans for a new track. Mars revealed the title of the tune as “All Bad Things Must Come to an End” and said the tune is about half finished … they’re just waiting on Vince Neil to drop some vocals and for Mars to lay the guitar solo down. As for a new full-length album, there’s still nothing official. Sixx says they’ve got their options open. As for the “final tour,” Sixx and Mars say they hope it encapsulates their legacy.

Track listing reveals collaborators
Linkin Park have released the track listing for their forthcoming album The Hunting Party. With the track listing comes a list of people the band worked with like Helmet’s Page Hamilton, Rakim, Daron Malakian from System of a Down and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. The Hunting Party drops in June.
There seems to be some resolve in the Queensryche dispute. At issue was who had the rights to the band’s name. Some of the original members were battling with singer Geoff Tate about who could use the name. Now it’s being reported that original members Eddi Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Michael Wilton will get the rights. Meanwhile, Tate will have rights to perform from albums Operation: Mindcrime and Operation: Mindcrime 2. The suit’s been going on for a few years.
Book out in October
And Anthrax’s Scott Ian will tell all in a book about his life. I’m the Man will cover his dysfunctional child hood, and how heavy metal saved his ass. Expect to pick that up in October.
