AHC Death?
The PRP reports: Rumors abound that a member of American Head Charge passed away today. Details are sketchy but band guitarist Bryan Ottoson was reportedly found dead in his bunk, though this has yet to be confirmed.

[the following came from a fan report on the band's forum, not the article referenced here. Again like the PRP reported this is not confirmed yet but here is the fan's report: Hey all, I registered on these forums so I could fill you in on as much as I know. I went to the Charleston, SC concert tonight @ The Plex, and while we were standing in line, an ambulance came roaring by, and just before 8:00pm, they notified us that the show was cancelled due to the death of a member of American Head Charge. I have NO CLUE who it is, as they are notifying family. Don't pm me and ask me, I don't know any more than that.]- Click Here for the Full Story

Dis reports: I'm no environmental crusader myself - we only got a recycling bin in my office a couple of weeks ago - but this message from The Green Guide seems to suggest that the makers of the world's favourite personal stereo are taking the substantial piss: Apple claims that environmental protection is a priority for them but they actually lag behind companies like Dell and Hewlett-Packard in offering take back programs for their products.

Flynn Apologizes To Slayer
Blabbermouth reports: MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn has posted the following message in the band's official forum: "...SLAYER has helped this band more than any other band out there, period. Kerry King, in particular, played a pivotal role in making that happen. It is something I will forever be grateful for, even if we never are friends again. 

"So with that said, I am issuing an apology to Kerry for the role I've played in our ongoing 'feud.' To be honest, I can't even remember why it started. With every barb we trade, I feel like I'm losing a part of my youth, and with it, a part of who I used to be, before MACHINE HEAD came into existence....
