Nugent Vs Osbournes
KNAC reports: According to Contactmusic.com, outspoken rocker Ted Nugent is defending controversial comments he made about reality TV family "The Osbournes," insisting Sharon Osbourne should be held accountable for celebrating domestic chaos. He touched a nerve when he slammed The Osbournes for presenting the worst of family life on TV. But, despite criticism and comeback from Osbourne herself, Nugent is refusing to back down. 

He says, "I was condemning the celebration of chaos, the celebration of anti-parenting. I think it's absolutely an indictment to the soullessness of our society when we can find humour or something entertaining about a family that has no discipline, that celebrates crime and smoking dope and getting drunk. I think it's absolutely putrid." [see full story for what he thinks of Sharon]- Click Here for the Full Story

BW&BK reports: Bassist Joe Del Mastro from Australia's VANISHING POINT has issued the following band update at the band's website regarding his decision to leave the band:

"Hi everyone. I am writing to let you all know that I am leaving Vanishing Point. My reasons are personal and it was a decision that I needed to make.

Vanishing Point needs a member who shares the same vision and future goals. I felt it was the best thing to do for myself but more importantly for the future of Vanishing Point.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
