Straight Edge Vs Geraldo
Victory Records reports: On Sunday, June 5th, former Earth Crisis singer and current singer for Freya Karl Buechner went live on At Large with Geraldo Rivera to provide the perspective of a lifelong Straight Edger in a discussion over the recent classification of Straight Edge as a gang in Reno, NV. On board for this segment was the father of a youth murdered in Salt Lake City in 1998 (for which two Straight Edge men were convicted) and a police officer from Reno and Geraldo Rivera. In a brief segment, Buechner defended Straight Edge as a positive choice, maintaining that the mainstream media only visits the topic when something negative happens, failing to cover the issues with an even hand. While his remarks were well-received on the television segment, it was less than ten minutes long, with four guests to hear from. Such a short segment on an inflammatory topic raises more questions than it answers.

Sharon is Nuts
Audio Aggression reports: Since the news broke in mid-May that Wicked Wisdom, the group fronted by actress Jada Pinkett Smith, will play at this year's Ozzfest, little has been heard about the act or how it landed such a coveted gig. But whatever its music sounds like, it convinced tour organizer Sharon Osbourne to put the band on the bill. 

"I wasn't sure what to expect when I went to see Wicked Wisdom play last April in a tiny [Los Angeles] club at midnight," Osbourne says. "But let me tell you, I was blown away. When you see and hear Jada with her band it's apparent that she has nothing but love and respect for this genre of music. I totally respect that the band wants to pay their dues playing the second stage on Ozzfest." In the past Wicked Wisdom has opened for such acts as Britney Spears.[Sharon is hoping for an N Sync reunion to headline next year.]- Click Here for the Full Story
