Today's Day in Rock

This Week's Top Stories

Here are the top stories from this past week's Day in Rock report

Foreigner's Jones and Gramm Reuniting For New Music
(Classic Rock) Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones says it will be "fun" hooking up with the band's original frontman Lou Gramm later this year. They are teaming up for the first time in over a decade to write songs for each of their solo albums, which may surface in 2015.

Jones tells Ultimate Classic Rock: "We want to delve back into some of the ideas we both knew we had. Then there's this little trove of goodies that Lou's got that I haven't heard. So we'll start basically just messing around with those ideas and maybe that will inspire us into something new."

He adds: "I think we're both going into it quite openly - just let it come naturally. We have no specific plans to do anything more at the moment. But it will be fun and a great way of us reestablishing more contact with each other. And I'm very happy about that."

Sharon Osbourne Slams U2
(Radio.com) Ever since U2 dumped their surprise album Songs of Innocence onto everyone's iCloud accounts, reactions have ranged from pleased to outraged. Earlier this week Fall Out Boy gave a tutorial on how to delete the album (something we did last week) and now Sharon Osbourne is voicing her opinion on the matter.

The always outspoken Osbourne matriarch is not impressed by U2's move, in case you were wondering. In fact, she felt so strongly about it that she took to Twitter to go on a rant. It started with her saying what many have noted: "U2 you are business moguls not musicians anymore. No wonder you have to give your mediocre music away for free cause no one wants to buy it."

Her last point, that no one buys U2's music, could be argued with since U2 are one of the few bands who've relatively managed to retain their sales amid the music industry's changing climate. Case in point: their last album in 2009 No Line on the Horizon moved 5 million units. Osbourne's overall rant, however, suggests that she has more of a problem with the invasive delivery method of the album and Bono's political persona.

She also added that "This is an invasion of my private space. My entertainment space…" and tweeted more directly, "Whose political a** are we going to pull you out of today? Or are you front row at another tragic fashion show?…"

Then she took shots at music industry figurehead Jimmy Iovine. Read more here.

Robert Plant Dismisses Led Zeppelin Bonus Songs
(Classic Rock) Robert Plant has dismissed the bonus material included with Led Zeppelin's remaster series as "nothing relevant." Bandmate Jimmy Page spent the past few years remastering the band's catalogue and adding companion discs to each title.

He recently told TeamRock that the unreleased demos, early versions and live tracks were "so many treats," adding: "People who love Led Zeppelin, who listen intently, are going to get so much out of this."

But Plant - who just released solo album Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar - tells Billboard: "What you're hearing there is mostly work-in-progress stuff. Things on their way to completion, and maybe there's some little quirk or something that led to an either/or moment. But it's nothing relevant. Not to me, at least." here.

Rolling Stones Opening The Vault For New Releases
(Radio.com) Over the past three decades, the Rolling Stones have released a bunch of live albums; in fact, there's been one documenting every tour they've done since 1981's Tattoo You tour.

But in more recent years, they've thrilled fans by dipping into the vaults for releases such as Some Girls: Live in Texas '78 and Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live At The Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago 1981.

Now, the band is putting out more concert recordings from their archives, with the debut of a new series, From The Vault. The releases will contain the concert on both video and audio, with the first two Vault albums being Hampton Coliseum: Live in 1981 and L.A. Forum: Live in 1975.

Hampton Coliseum is a two-and-a-half-hour concert from the 1981 tour for Tattoo You, and was recorded on Keith Richards' 38th birthday. The setlist featured "Under My Thumb," "Let"s Spend The Night Together," "Shattered," "Beast Of Burden," "Tumbling Dice," "Miss You," "Brown Sugar," "Jumping Jack Flash," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," among other classics and will be released on Nov. 4.

L.A. Forum also clocks in at the same length and was recording during the band's 1975 tour; their first with guitarist Ron Wood. The setlist includes "Honky Tonk Women," "Gimme Shelter," "You Can't Always Get What You Want," "Tumbling Dice," "Brown Sugar," "Star Star," "Midnight Rambler," "Jumpin' Jack Flash," and "Sympathy For The Devil" and will be out on Nov. 18.

Rob Zombie Almost Done With New Album

Zombie tells the San Jose Mercury News: "I really think this is the best record yet, truthfully. I don't know if everybody says that, but I really feel that way. I'm not sure when we'll put it out, probably beginning of next year, but it's pretty much done."

He has other commitments to fulfill before he finishes the record - his current US tour keeps him busy until later this month, then he'll spend the autumn in the director's chair on his next movie 31. Read more here.

Teaser Trailer For Slipknot's Corey Taylor's Upcoming Film Released
(TeamRock Radio) Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor will star in upcoming horror movie Fear Clinic. And to mark the announcement, a trailer for the movie has been release.

The film, directed by Robert Hall and also starring A Nightmare On Elm Street actor Robert Englund, will receive its world premiere at the Screamfest Horror event in Hollywood on October 22.

The director initially approached Metallica bassist Robert Tujillo for the role as Bauer, a clinic worker, but he turned the offer down and suggested Taylor for the part instead.

Taylor tells Full Metal Jackie: "Rob had offered Robert the role, but he could't do it as he was going to Antarctica with Metallica. He put us in touch and within two weeks I was on the set. It was pretty sweet.

"I had always wanted to be in a movie and try my hand at it. It was a fantastic learning experience and I learned a lot just from watching everybody. I really got into it and grew a moustache for the part so I could look extra creepy."

Ghost Won't Make Mistake Of Haunting Fans Too Long
(Classic Rock) One of the Nameless Ghouls of Ghost says he understands why other acts are tempted to keep going long after they should have split - but insists his band won't make the same mistake.

Members have previously discussed the longevity of the band, and the concept of whether to continue making music once their identities have been revealed. They were recently the subject of an online petition to force them to quit.

Now a Ghoul tells TNG: "There are a lot of bands that just keep existing - and I don't blame people. There are bands that have existed for 10, 15, 30 years that just keep going. They do it because they have to, for monetary reasons. They have to live.If you've been in a semi-successful band you don't want to start working at a gas station."

He says the situation can cause problems for bands who may remain more relevant: "You have a very dense field where everybody has to co-exist. You come into a city and just that week there's five concerts. That's bad for everybody."

In the mayor's proclamation of the day, he credits the "fan-orchestrated event that brought Foo Fighters back to Virginia's capital city." Read more here.

Fleetwood Mac In The Studio For Tusk 35th Anniversary
Syndicated radio show In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands this week is running part one of a two part special on Fleetwood Mac celebrating their North American tour and the 35th anniversary of their 1979 classic Tusk. The show sent over these details:

To celebrate forty years since forming this line up, Fleetwood Mac will perform forty dates including multiple shows in several of the biggest North American cities, an unequivocal testament to this specific band's evergreen starpower. With singer/songwriter/vocalist/keyboardist Christine McVie on board, once again, Fleetwood Mac is back to full strength with the mid-'70s line up that made them international superstars.

In Part 1 which airs this week, Stevie, Lindsey, and Mick speak candidly about how Californians Buckingham and Nicks found their way into the very British band Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks shares with InTheStudio program host Redbeard her awareness of the complex dynamics she would face after the two then-lovers became members of Fleetwood Mac.

"You have to remember: Fleetwood Mac was not looking for another girl singer. They were looking for a guitar player, period. The fact that the guitar player they found happened to have this girlfriend, that they instantly knew he was not going to give up for them… I know Mick joked to many people, 'Well if she doesn't work out... off with her head!'" (laughs)

Northlane Lose Their Voice
(TeamRock Radio) Departed Northlane frontman Adrian Fitipaldes has confirmed he had to quit as a result of voice problems. He says his performance issues led to physical and mental stress - and he didn't enjoy being in the band any more.

The Australian metalcore outfit announced his decision earlier this week, citing health concerns for his departure. Now Fitipaldes reports: "For the majority of my career in Northlane I had been experiencing severe vocal issues. My voice had fully blown out more times than I could count, and over time has reduced my endurance to the point where any screaming at all takes a toll on my voice.

"It became increasingly difficult to manage the situation and started becoming a real source of stress, physically and mental. Sadly it got to a point where I wasn't able to enjoy the dream we had worked so hard to realize". Read more here.

Metal Singer Thinks U2 'Are A Violation Of People's Rights'
(Classic Rock) Orange Goblin singer Ben Ward has blasted U2 for releasing their album Songs Of Innocence free via Apple. Over 500million iTunes users had the tracks added to their account free of charge last week - whether they wanted them or not. As a result of negative reaction, the computer giant set up an online tool for deleting the files.

Ward tells Bravewords: "From what I've read, it's gone against them. A lot of people refuse to listen to it and don't want anything more to do with the band. It just stinks of typical Bono pretentiousness - I don't like it. You wake up one morning, open your iTunes, and it's there. I know a lot of people can't believe it. There's some people whose devices are bordering on the brink of capacity memory."

He believes users should have been given the choice of whether to download. "Don't just stick it in there and force it upon people," he says, adding: "I think U2 in general are a violation of people's rights. That's just my personal taste." Read more here.

Slipknot Reveal Their New Masks
(Radio.com) After teasing the new look in their recent video for "The Devil in I," Slipknot have finally revealed the new masks accompanying new album .5: The Gray Chapter.

The band posted a two-minute video to their YouTube page today (Sept. 18) showing off the new look for the upcoming album cycle. The clip included all nine members of the band, two of which have not been officially announced.

.5 marks the first album for the band since bassist Paul Gray's death in May 2010 and drummer Joey Jordison's departure in December of last year. Their replacements were seen in the "Devil in I" music video in addition to the new snippet, which features the song's audio as the masks are shown off.

So far, rumors are that Alessandro Venturella is the bassist, a story backed up, fans say, by hand tattoos visible in the new music video. Meanwhile, the drummer is reported to be Jay Weinberg, former Against Me! and E Street Band drummer (the latter briefly replacing his dad, Max), something most recently surmised by Billboard.

Jack White Slams Rolling Stone
(Radio.com) Jack White has taken over the crown for rants from Kanye West. During his show Wednesday night (Sept. 17) at Boston's Fenway Park he kicked things off with a four-minute rant, which included digs at the Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone.

While his comments about the Foo Fighters made headlines, his camp later sent out a statement explaining that he was joking. White, however had a lot more to say about Rolling Stone - particularly, its website. Three minutes of insults to be exact. "Something for RollingStone.com tomorrow," he said. "I like to feed them something everyday. They've paid me zero dollars to plug them tomorrow." After saying Rolling Stone was "brought to you by Jack White" his rant continued as he joked the publication was "brought to you by the Kardashian family."

He then went on to insult their online content, giving off gallery title suggestions. "15 outfits that will blow your mind that Taylor Swift wore this month," he said. "10 reasons why RollingStone.com didn't cover the Newport Folk Festival for 50 years. 12 reasons Rolling Stone won't put a black and white cover on the cover of their magazine unless you're dead.

"Did you also know Jann Wenner also owns US Magazine? The tabloid capital of magazines. Keeping paparazzi alive for over 20 years," he said. "OK, I'm officially supposed to stop now, because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren't allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant. So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, Hello Cleveland!"

Symphony X Going Back To Classic Sound On New Album
(Classic Rock) Symphony X bassist Michael LePond has vowed the band's ninth album will feature a return to their classic sound. But he says the change of tone from 2011's Iconoclast wasn't a deliberate move.

LePond tells Talking Metal: "This album is not going to be as heavy as Iconoclast. If I had to compare this one, I would say it's The Odyssey meets Paradise Lost.

"It has a lot of classic Symphony X elements in it, and I think our old fans are really going to appreciate this one. It's very, very musical - it concentrates on solid songs and great melodies."

Ott says: "We never planned to take a break at all. People got married, people got divorced, people had children, jobs came and went. It was always in the back of our mind that we'd continue.

"We got together and played a few shows here and there. But it wasn't until two years ago that we started thinking we could actually make another record - something worth the stuff we'd done in the past."

Dio Cancer Fund Gives $100K To Cancer Center
(hennemusic) The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, founded in memory of the late heavy metal singer, last week presented a check for $100,000 to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

This donation is the second installment in a commitment to fund gastroesophageal cancer research spearheaded by Dr. Jaffer A. Ajani, Professor, GI Medical Oncology, who treated Dio at the Center for the last six months of his life. The Fund's initial donation of $117,000 in December of 2010 served as seed money that allowed Dr. Ajani to receive additional grant monies as well as several National Cancer Institute (NCI) grants with a total amount of $10 million.

This year, the Dio Cancer Fund has been the beneficiary of funds generated from the worldwide release of the Dio tribute album, "This Is Your Life." It features Dio songs-from his tenures with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and his own band Dio performed by some of metal music's biggest names, among them Anthrax, Halestorm, Rob Halford, Metallica, Motφrhead, Glenn Hughes, Scorpions, Corey Taylor and Tenacious D. It has sold over 80,000 units since its release on April 1st. The Fund's annual awards Gala this year doubled as a preview listening party for the album, generating additional revenues.

We're excited for the future with him."

Richardson says: "I filled in for Rob when Sylosis toured together with Bleed From Within and DevilDriver. I had a total blast playing the songs in a live environment - so it was a no-brainer when they asked me to join full time. here.

Bring Me The Horizon Revitalized After Rehab
(TeamRock Radio) Bring Me The Horizon's Jordan Fish says frontman Oli Sykes is like a "different person" since his stint in rehab. At this year's Alternative Press Music Awards, the singer revealed he spent years addicted to ketamine and, following a month in rehab, used his experiences to write their Sempiternal album.

Now Fish, who joined the band in 2012, says he saw the change in him instantly when they got together to start working on new material. He tells Rock 105.9 WOBG: "The writing sessions they had done before he went into rehab hadn't been productive because he was going through so much. When I came in, he'd just come out and everyone around him was still concerned - it was a weird time.

"The first song we did was And The Snakes Start To Sing, so we worked on that and really got stuck in. I can't speak for Oli but I think from that point on, it gave him drive and focus."

Fear Factory Frontman Inspired By L.A. Riots
(TeamRock Radio) Fear Factory frontman Burton C Bell says that growing up during the Los Angeles riot in the early 1990s inspired his fascination with science fiction and the sight of the National Guard on the streets left a lasting impression.

Violence flared following the acquittal of four LAPD officers for the beating of a black motorist Rodney King in 1991. And Bell tells The Indian Express: "We experienced the LA riots first-hand. I remember the National Guard patrolling the roads of LA, setting up posts across the street.

"This wasn't science fiction - this was pure struggle. But these are the experiences that create science fiction, because we were struggling, we were fighting the establishment, the machine."

Five Finger Death Punch Star Says There Is Hope For Addicts
(TeamRock Radio) Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer says there's hope for anyone battling addiction if they are willing to look for help. The former addict recently revealed the aftermath of a 20-hour drink and drugs binge made him seek support. And he insists people can find guidance - but only when they think the time is right.

He tells Hard Drive Radio: "You have to live your own life and choose your own path. I'm not one to say, 'You need to stop and get it in order.' You're going to have to make that choice for yourself.

"But you can always talk to someone. And I know until you're ready to stop, you're not going to. They say you have to hit the wall in order to wake up and then decide to make the change.

"For me, I hit the wall, and fortunately it wasn't hard enough to where it killed me, and I hope that's the case for you out there too. But there is help available." here.

Madison Square Garden's Owner Opening For The Eagles
(TeamRock Radio) The billionaire owner of New York's Madison Square Garden says he hopes fans will give his band a chance after he booked himself to open for the Eagles on his home turf.

Jim Dolan, who is friends with Eagles mainman Joe Walsh, has lined up JD & The Straight Shot to support the group on September 18 at the iconic venue.

Dolan also owns the New York Knicks basketball team and the city's Rangers ice hockey side and says he wants fans to listen to his music, which is known for taking pot-shots at politicians.

He tells the New York Post: "I worry about the other ways that people know me. I worry that they aren't going to listen to the music. Are they going to look at the music and go, 'I don't like how the Knicks are doing this year?'

"You are definitely putting it out there and making yourself vulnerable and susceptible to criticism. And since it's so personal, you run the risk of being hurt."

Motley Crue Plan Very Special Final Show
(hennemusic) Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has revealed the location of the band's final concert of their 2-year farewell tour. "Rumor has it, the last few shows are going to be Vegas and LA, because we wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started," Neil tells Las Vegas Weekly.

The tentative plan, according to Neil, is for the Crόe to play a "couple of nights" in Las Vegas at the tail end of 2015 before returning home to Los Angeles.

"After New Year's, we'll do three nights at one of the arenas in LA," said Neil. "And then do a special show at the Whiskey a Go Go on our 35th anniversary."

Sammy Hagar Forced To Cancel Birthday Bash Shows
(hennemusic) Sammy Hagar has cancelled his upcoming Birthday Bash shows in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico next month following damage to the area caused by Hurricane Odile.

The October shows at Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina have become an annual ritual for fans. "This year marks our 24th anniversary so nothing short of a massive hurricane could have kept me from Cabo," says Hagar.

"But after seeing the damage that Odile's caused to Los Cabos' airport, resorts and town, it's with an incredibly heavy heart that we've come to that decision.

"Our prayers and best wishes are with our Cabo Wabo family and everyone that's been affected by this storm. Los Cabos will recover better and stronger than before because of its incredibly strong community."

Gene Simmons Weighs In On Ray Rice Controversy
(Radio.com) KISS star Gene Simmons thinks Ray Rice should get some time in prison - and then perhaps, he says, the football player will understand the enormity of his actions against his wife.

In an interview with the Mike & Ike Show on 94WIP (a CBS Radio station), Simmons spoke to the incident between Rice, a former player for the Baltimore Ravens, and his then-girlfriend and now-wife, whom Rice was shown punching and assaulting in video obtained by TMZ, leading to his release from his team.

"My opinion is, if he was in jail for a day and became somebody's girlfriend maybe he'd knew what abuse is life, but that's another story," Simmons told the station. "I'm against physical violence of anybody. You raise your hand to somebody you should he held accountable, not just in the legal system. It's unsportsmanlike."

Simmons added that he felt the "saddest part" of the ordeal was that "Rice's wife or fiancee isn't copping to the fact that she was abused. More than abused - knocked out, the physical stuff."

Anthrax's Next Album To Be Far 'Thrashier'
(Classic Rock) Anthrax bassist Frank Bello says the follow-up to 2011 album Worship Music will be far "thrashier" - and they're finding the songs a challenge to play. They're still refining the songs ahead of recording sessions, but as many as 17 tracks have reached demo stage.

Bello tells WVOX: "Scott Ian and I were jamming with Charlie Benante, just doing demos. You know after you're done with a song, you're shaking your hand like you do a fastball? I'm tell you, the blood needed to flow again.

"I like the fact we have to work for this. That means there's something going on with these songs. Scott and I look at each other and start laughing, then we start shaking our hands: 'That's going to be a good one!'"

Stars Lined Up To Tribute George Harrison Next Week
(Radio.com) George Harrison was famously known as "The Quiet Beatle," but he wrote some of the group's songs, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "If I Needed Someone," "Taxman" and "Something" - and, arguably, he had the best solo album of an Beatle (that would be 1970's All Things Must Pass). At one point in the late '80s and early '90s, he also seemed to be the most popular Beatle, enjoying success via his smash album Cloud Nine and his membership in the Traveling Wilburys.

Now, Harrison is going to be the subject of a couple of tributes centered around the Sept. 23 reissues of his first six solo albums. During that week, Conan will feature daily tribute performances of Harrison's music, by artists including Beck, Dhani Harrison and Norah Jones. Dhani is George's son, oversaw the reissues (he also co-produced his father's final album, Brainwashed, released in 2002) He leads his own band, thenewno2, and is also a member of Fistful of Mercy, alongside Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur. Norah Jones has her own Harrison connection: she is the daughter of Harrison friend and classical sitar legend Ravi Shankar.

Additionally, on Sept. 28, Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre will host George Fest, which will be full of tributes from a grab bag of different artists across multiple genres. Find out who will be performing here.

Five Finger Death Punch's Jeremy Spencer Thought He Was Dying
(TeamRock Radio) Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer has recalled the horror drugs experience that finally got him clean. He believed he was dying as he suffered convulsions after a 20-hour binge in 2012 - and all he could think about was that he'd let his parents down.

Spencer tells KZRR: "I'd been up for a couple of days in Vegas, doing coke and meth and drinking the whole time. I had a straw in one hand and a bottle of Jack in the other for something like 20 hours.

"All of a sudden my body just went, 'Enough.' I started convulsing, my heart was starting to skip beats, I was breaking out in cold sweats and I was shaking. It was really scary.

"I was laying on the bed thinking, 'You may have done it this time, you idiot.' Then I started thinking about how bummed out my parents were going to be. That their son, who left him at 19 to achieve this dream, finally achieved it - then he's going to die."

Spencer told himself: "'If you get out of this one, you're going to fix it.'" And he did. Read about that and a lot more here.

Ex-Fabulous Thunderbirds Star Heartbroken Over Record Stores Demise
(The Blues) Former Fabulous Thunderbirds guitarist Kirk Fletcher says he's "truly heartbroken" over the demise of record shops - and he doesn't believe online alternatives can fill the gap.

He fears the young musical talent won't be exposed to the range of art he was able to discover for himself. Fletcher tells the Bolton News: "I feel a lot of things are accessible via the internet - but there are large holes in the younger generation's knowledge of music.

"Growing up, there was a great record store in every little city I could visit. I loved the pursuit of finding things by reading the back of a cover, sifting through old magazines, asking people older than me about how it was in the 50s and 60s - I could go on and on." Read more here.

Ace Frehley's Former Bandmate Shocked By Dismissal
(Classic Rock) Ace Frehley's former bassist Anthony Esposito says he was "shocked" not to be asked to play on the ex Kiss man's latest album. And he says after seven years with Frehley, he deserved to be treated better.

Esposito tells SROMaginc.com: "He didn't use me on Space Invader, which I thought was kind of hard after Anomaly did so well. So many people liked it and I was really instrumental in that record.

"I was like, 'Hey, Ace, I don't know if I'm in the touring band or not," and he texted me back saying, 'I'm gonna go in a different direction. Chris Wyse from The Cult is my new bass player.'

He continues: "I was in the band for seven years. And I did a lot more than just play bass. I was the tour manager, stage manager, merch guy, and I would settle all the money with promoters.

"I was more than just a hired-bass sideman. And I was kind of shocked that I was just tossed away. But I guess that's the nature of the job." Read more and stream the full interview here.

Andre 3000 Almost Quit Jimi Hendrix Biopic
(Classic Rock) Andre 3000 has compared playing Jimi Hendrix in a forthcoming movie to "walking backwards." The Outkast frontman has been playing guitar right-handed all his life but when he was told he would have to learn to play left-handed for the role of Hendrix in Jimi: All Is By My Side, he says he almost quit.

The singer previously said making the film "saved" him, but now reveals how difficult it was to portray the iconic guitarist. He tells Shortlist magazine: "It was very hard - it's almost the same as walking backwards. The crazy part was when we first approached the film. We thought we were going to be able to shoot it right-handed, so I could have full confidence and full movement of knowing how to do it. We were going to try to flip the image."

But when he discovered that wasn't to be the case, Andre had doubts he would be able to continue in the roll as he didn't want to upset Hendrix fans. He continues: "I was kind of bummed about it - I didn't know if I could pull it off." Read more here.

Joe Perry Says They Gave Fans What They Asked For With Last Album
(Classic Rock) Aerosmith's Joe Perry says 2012 album Music From Another Dimension is one of the best records the band ever recorded. Last month, bandmate Tom Hamilton said "fans didn't do their homework" on the album, the follow-up to 2004's Honkin' On Bobo, but Perry says circumstances were against them, which meant the record didn't get the promotional push it deserved.

He tells Yahoo Music: "I thought Music From Another Dimension was one of the best records we'd done in years, because it was the record that fans seemed to have been asking for.

"Over the last 20 years, we'd get requests like, 'Why don't you make a record like the old ones?' I think we got back to the real deal with the last record, but circumstances being what they were, it never got the push from the label.

"We had this whole promotion set up with the G.I. Joe movie, but I got a call from Paramount saying, 'We're pulling the movie for six months,' so the whole promotion thing was pulled right from under us. At the same time, the president of Sony went to Universal two weeks before the album came out. If that isn't a setup for a bad opening, I don't know what is."

King Diamond Felling Better Than Ever
(TeamRock Radio) Following triple-bypass heart surgery in 2010, King Diamond says he now feels "fresher" after gigs than before. And following doctor's advice to quit smoking, the Danish metal veteran says his vocals sound better than ever.

He tells WRKR-FM: "Our stage production is two stories and I'm up and down those stairs several times throughout the set. It's not easy when you sing my style of vocals.

"I get much less oxygen than the rest of the band as I take a deep breath and let it out slowly while I'm controlling the outflow. I can sing song lines and keep talking, so it's a lot less oxygen into the blood. I really have to economise what's going on.

"But now, after those 90 minutes when I get off stage, I feel, 'Was that it?' It's not a problem. I'm fresher than I used to be after shows." Read more here.

Bloodbath Reveal Who They Recruited As New Singer
(TeamRock Radio) After months of speculation, wild guessing and scurrilous rumor, Bloodbath - Sweden's horror-gorged death metal supergroup featuring Katatonia's Jonas Renkse and Anders Nystrφm, as well as past member Per Eriksson and Opeth's Martin Axenrot -can exclusively reveal here the successor to former frontmen Peter Tδgtren and Mikael Εkerfeldt. The new frontman for Bloodbath will be… Nick Holmes.

The Paradise Lost singer might be known these days for his sonorous tones, but Bloodbath's forthcoming album, Grand Morbid Funeral released by Peaceville Records on November 17, will see the return of the ravenous and cavernous growl that marked Paradise Lost's debut album, Lost Paradise, so expect an outpouring of sonic dread, blood-soaked riffs and monstrous grooves, dragged even deeper into the lair of the awesome by the guest appearances of Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler from supreme US filthmongers, Autopsy.

"Ever since I got into Lost Paradise back in 1990," says Jonas Renkse, "Nick Holmes has been one of my favourite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after I was introduced to his thunderous roar!"

Howard Stern Addresses Retirement Rumors
(Extra) "Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with Howard Stern at the "America's Got Talent" finale. AJ asking Howard about the reports that he is planning to retire and move to his $52 million Palm Beach Florida pad with wife Beth. Stern shooting down the headlines, "That is absolutely untrue. I saw that on the news myself and I said… 'Wow!'"

Calloway also got Stern's thoughts on the Ray Rice scandal, and his friend Joan Rivers. Stern said of the disgraced football player, "I think it's very unfortunate that a guy has to wreck his whole career doing something so despicable."

Remembering his eulogy for Joan earlier this month, Howard said, "I was very, very nervous about it in the sense that I wanted to honor Joan's memory. We go way back. And she was always there for me and I always tried to be there for her. And I miss her greatly."

U2 Meant To Annoy People With Free Album Says Bono
(Radio.com) Just to be clear, Bono knows how invasive it was to drop his surprise album in your iCloud - but that was the point. In an interview this morning with CBS Radio's KROQ, the U2 frontman opened up about the band's release method.

"The punk rock thing to do is annoy people and get in their faces," he said. "If people have a problem with the way we released the album, I'm sure they've read about it online."

Bono's talk of punk rock didn't end there. He also explained the band's Songs of Innocence tribute to Joey Ramone, "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)." Apparently, when Bono was just starting out, he had the realization that his singing voice wasn't very masculine - an asset that ended up helping him front U2 - and Joey Ramone's music made him feel like it was okay.

""I realized that I sang as a girl and I was a bit depressed about it as a young Irish male," he recalled. "And then I realized Joey Ramone sings like a girl. He was inspired by all those great sirens as well as everything else. He has a beautiful melodic voice. And if I could be so lucky, I might try to have one of those."

Singled Out: Engineers' Fight or Flight
Today Mark Peters from Engineers tells us about the song "Fight or Flight", the first song from their brand new album "Always Returning," which was released this week. Here is the story:

This track was written upon my return to the UK after a US tour as a sound guy for Ulrich (Schnauss who also plays synths in the band). He remarked that 'What It's Worth' (from Engineers' 3rd album "In Praise Of More") was perfect music for driving on the west coast of the US and that this atmosphere was one of the strongest facets of my song writing.

I wanted to tap into that same melancholy lyrically as that song but exchange the air of sadness for the uplifting sense of freedom in 'Fight Or Flight' that driving over those landscapes provides. The lyrics concern the breakdown of friendship and how I'm trying to reason with this person that in the grander scheme of things our differences, faults, daily struggles are essentially meaningless and our battles pointless. I think there's an anger in the verse of the song that is juxtaposed in the chorus with a philosophical sentiment that (hopefully) gives a feeling of resolve and possibility.

As I tracked the instruments I was listening to a lot of 80's indie and new wave music and the band Felt (In particular the Robin Guthrie produced 'Ignite The Seven Cannons') influenced me a great deal on this song. I like the fact that the jangly guitar band framework is given a subtly 'off kilter' feeling by modulation effects and a bright overall production. One of the most surprising things about the track sonically are Ulrich's synths which for me capture him at his most elegiac and blissful. I have to admit that this was a great moment in the recording session - one of those points in music making where you feel that (quite unrealistically I hasten to add!) anything is possible, and everything somehow will be fine.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the band and the album right here!
