|Puscifer Hitting The Road|
"Efforts to confine our beloved enigma to the Southwestern United States have been thwarted." said Keenan. "We are compelled beyond all reason to bring the noise and share our special sauce. Although authorities suggest you be prepared for any and all possibilities, we simply suggest you arrive happy and hungry."
While the concept for Puscifer came to Keenan in 1995, it wasn't until 2007 that the collective released their debut album, V is for V*****, which was followed by a remix album fittingly titled V is for V*****. Valentine's Day 2009 saw the live debut of the outfit, as the group of musicians and comedians hosted a trio of performances at The Pearl inside the Palms Casino Resort in sin-city itself, Las Vegas.- more on this story

|Zakk Wylde Doing Peachy Keen|
"I spent three days in a hospital in Eugene, Oregon where they gave me a 24 hour drip of Heparin where they could monitor me. The next two days I received shots of Heparin into my stomach. Each shot lasted 24 hours.
"I was given a cat scan where they found three clots. I was then told each one of the clots passed through my heart. I just received an ultrasound. My left leg has a clot above the side and behind my knee, my calf and running into my heel. My right leg has a clot in between my calf and ankle. In a couple of days I'll have another CT scan to see how my lungs are doing.- more on this story

|Relient K Go Jive For New Album|
"The songs that tend to be the fan favorites in the past are the ones about making mistakes but ultimately moving past them," says guitarist Matt Hoopes. "And this record has a lot of that feeling. No matter what trials and tribulations you encounter in your life, it doesn't have to be the end of your story. You can move on and be happy and experience joy."
On this latest release, the band teamed up with longtime producer Mark Townsend, and enlisted legendary mixer Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Sheryl Crow), as they carried the 'break-up album' into the 21st century, tweaking it with clear-eyed songwriting and a four-to-the-floor optimism that is positively refreshing. - more on this story

|Blues For Tony|
Blues For Tony (Buy)
Holdsworth's classic "Fred," Pasqua's equally iconic "Protocosmos" and Lifetime bassist Tony Newman's energetic "Red Alert" are all there from Believe It, New Lifetime's now iconic first release, but here stretched out with plenty of space for relentless soloing from everyone in the group. The 2006/2007 tours would have a lasting affect on Pasqua, inspiring him to return to higher octane fusion for his solo recordings. On Blues for Tony, he plays with the kind of unfettered abandon and deep sophistication that so defined his work with Williams, a direction he largely deserted for more elegant acoustic outings like 1995's Dedications, from which the darkly balladic "San Michele" is culled, but is here reinvented as a potential fusion classic, with its Mahavishnu Orchestra-like arpeggios, Pasqua's gritty electric piano and Wackerman's thundering kit.
In addition to material from Believe It, the group revisits two of Holdsworth's own well-known classics: the change-heavy "Looking Glass," from 1985's Atavachron, and funkier "Pud Wud" from 1990's Sand, the latter opening with an atmospheric unaccompanied solo from Holdsworth that asserts his continued dominance as one of jazz's most harmonically distinctive players, and Haslip's most impressive solo of the set - the perfect confluence of pure virtuosity and in-the-moment melodic composition. Holdsworth's velvety smooth tone is more vocal-like than it's ever been, but equally there's an edge that's reemerged in recent years but has remained undocumented - until now.- more on this story
