Dimebag Murder Book
BW&BK reports: A Vulgar Display Of Power: Courage And Carnage At The Alrosa Villa is a new book by author Chris A. due in February through MJS Music Publications. The official press release follows: …A Vulgar Display Of Power tells the true story of the events leading up to the tragic murders. It peers into the twisted mind and background of a killer intoxicated by psychotic rage and driven by the voice of the beast inside his head. A Vulgar Display Of Power attempts to make sense of what appears to be a senseless act. Unlike books that only focus on the evil of the killer or the fruits of the crime, A Vulgar Display Of Power also extols the inspirational selflessness of those who died trying to help others. 

Within its pages, readers will meet and experience the lives of Erin Halk, Jeff Thompson, and Nathan Bray. In addition, the book contains a moving tribute to Dimebag Darrell Abbott with contributions from fans, rock stars and friends.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

White Rapper = Wrapper?
AP reports: Their very names strike fear in the hearts of white rappers everywhere: Vanilla Ice. Snow. Kevin Federline. Though there are notable success stories - Eminem and the Beastie Boys, most obviously - pale emcees often travel a hard road to respect.

The setup is simple and instantly amusing: Ten white amateurs are picked to live in an apartment in New York's South Bronx (the birthplace of hip-hop), where they must prove their rhyming skills and gain respect. The winner gets $100,000. [see full story for all the gory details]- Click Here for the Full Story
