Hoobastank Vs Velvet Revolver
Blabbermouth reports: HOOBASTANK singer Doug Robb has told MTV.com that the band's brand-new song "If I Were You ..." , which may end up being the title track of the group's next album, was written from a couple of seemingly unrelated experiences: watching ESPN and touring with VELVET REVOLVER.

" 'If I Were You ...' was really inspired by, um, the NHL strike. Not like 'Oh, I'm going to write a song about hockey!' but watching all that and going on tour with VELVET REVOLVER you see all these guys who have so much and don't appreciate it," he said. "They seem to have forgotten where they came from. Actually, let me rephrase that: Four of those guys were the coolest ever, one of them is just in his own world. And I'll leave it at that."[Wonder who that might be? see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

CinderelDuh
BW&BK reports: Wisconsin-Music (www.wisconsin-music.com) recently spoke with CINDERELLA leader Tom Keifer. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Q: The 60's had Mick Jagger, the 70's had Steven Tyler, and in my opinion the 80's have you. You all seem like you're cut from the same cloth, both in performance and even in appearance. 

A: "Well, I take that as a major compliment. I just want to go on the record and say that you said that, I didn't. (laughs) Both of them was obviously a big influence on me.
