Linkin Snub
Audio Aggression reports: Linkin Park guitarist and spokesman Brad Delson shot down any chance of negotations between Warner Music Group and Linkin Park recently. WMG actually asked the band to play at the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate the company's IPO. That request, said Delson, "just exemplifies how out of touch the ownership of the Warner Music Group is with our band. It doesn't make any sense to us why we would play a show at the New York Stock Exchange. I don't know what was going through their minds." [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Drunk Halen Killed Reunion
BW&BK reports: Last year's VAN HALEN reunion tour thrilled fans around North America, but things were not quite as euphoric inside the band. Bassist Michael Anthony told Launch that guitarist Eddie Van Halen's continued drinking made things a bit erratic and seems to have halted plans for future touring. 

"I hate to talk smack about anyone in the band or whatever, but, y'know, Eddie, you know, he's still doing a bit of drinking and everything," he said. "There were nights where it was kind of like a rollercoaster, up or down, and myself, I would have liked to have seen him totally clean up if we were gonna take this further and, like, 'cause, gosh, we could've gone all around the world with it."

CKY Vs Megadeth
Blabbermouth reports: CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller has slammed MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine for threatening to cancel any shows where "full-on Satanic" bands are also scheduled to appear.

This from the guy that wrote 'Wake Up Dead'. 

"Dave, I love MEGADETH, but JOIN REALITY. METALLICA was more succesful...so what?! Get over it. And now all of a sudden Christ is your savior... How weak. Take some credit for your own accomplishments. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

No New Sabbath
BW&BK reports: OZZY OSBOURNE has assured cynical critics the newly reformed BLACK SABBATH will steer clear of the recording studio, unless they write a batch of tunes on a par with their rock classics. 

The charismatic singer - who is touring with the band this summer (05) - is aware a new disc of "half-assed" Sabbath songs will leave music journalists in no doubt they're only back together to make easy money. However, Osbourne insists if the songwriting skills that launched them to prominence in the 1970s are still there, they may have another album to add to their discography.

Franz Fringe Protest
NME reports: FRANZ FERDINAND fans are petitioning online for the return of singer ALEX KAPRANOS's fringe. 

A statement from 'The Undersigned' on www.petitiononline.com/ reads: "If you aware of the Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand, you may also be aware of their lead singer's late fringe. The fringe of Alexander Kapranos symbolised a great many things to his fans - freedom, truth, beauty, justice - and he also had to push it attractively out of his eyes in order to see. We liked that. 

"However, it has come to our attention that the much beloved fringe of Mr Kapranos has been cruelly taken from his forehead, to be replaced with a haircut that enables him to see. We find this upsetting, shocking, infuriating and a variety of other words that end in "ing". [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
