Report for 9/12/05
Backstreet Korn
Rockdirt reports: RollingStone.com caught up with Brian 'Head' Welch and asked the former Korn guitarist why he left the band last year. "When we first started, Korn had power over all of our music and what we said -- the songs are pretty outspoken," Welch said. "Then with the last record, it seemed like everybody shifted from being down with the fans to wanting to make money, and our managers started getting really involved. They were telling us what songs to play -- and, I mean, they manage the Backstreet Boys! They started talking about hiring writers for the new record. I don't know if they did. And I was going, 'Dude, this is stupid.'[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

R. Kelly is Ridiculous
punkbands reports: Here is the latest from Saves The Day in the studio: OK, sorry to do this here, but i can't take it. R. kelly is ridiculous. As a matter of fact, he's so out of his mind that we've created a new word for him- RIDICULATY!!!!! that's right, saves the day is starting a feud with r. kelly. We can't take it anymore. "trapped in the closet" is the most insane piece of crap i've ever seen. i can't be the only one who's flabbergasted at how bad this "song" is. unbelievable. almost as bad as my spelling. his acting performance of it on the vma's was painful to watch. he is out of his mind. and if you haven't heard his new "song" called "sex in the kitchen", you don't know what you're missing. that is, if you consider not hearing a song about "cutting up tomatoes, fruits and vegetables and potatoes" as missing out. he can't be serious. he must be stopped. who will join us in this fight? tell a friend. pete[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Bored Sabbath
OzzyHead.com reports: ...if you had asked Iommi two years ago what he hoped to be doing in 2005, he'd have said he wanted to be promoting a new Black Sabbath album, not a new Iommi disc. At the time, Sabbath were in the studio in Wales working on new material. But progress was slow, and by the time the bandmembers went their separate ways, they had ideas for about only six songs — ideas that have been gathering dust since then. At present, Black Sabbath have no plans to return to the studio to record those or any other songs. 

"I've waited around a long time to do a Sabbath album, and it's getting frustrating," Iommi said. "I'm getting bored with the idea of waiting around any longer and I've got a lot of music to put out and I just want to do it. I wanted to go and really work on being in a band. So basically, that motivated me into making an album with Glenn and Kenny. It's a great band and a great outlet."

Trendrunner Records
BW&BK reports: Transform Online has issued a new interview with OBITUARY bassist Frank Watkins.

The following is an excerpt from the interview: Q: why did you guys decide to stay with Roadrunner? This is your last record for them, right? Fans' opinions of them are pretty split, between the death metal fallout of the mid-‘90s and the NICKLEBACK thing…

A: "Yeah, well, Roadrunner have always kinda been a "flavor of the month" label. When they signed us, death metal was huge. When NIRVANA hit it big, they signed bands like GRUNTRUCK. But you know, I've never had serious problems with them... although I do feel that they could've done more for us when we needed it. It seemed like whenever we were reaching a critical point, they'd sign another band and we'd fall by the wayside.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Club Death Suit
BW&BK reports: Nothing went right that night. There was the smash-up in the mosh pit, then the bar-side brawl. Before it was all over, Wendy Laskas' husband, Thomas, lay bleeding to death in a hallway at Ybor City's Masquerade nightclub while the band played on.

Three months after her husband was fatally stabbed, Wendy Laskas claims the nightclub's owners are to blame for his death. On Thursday, Laskas' attorney filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of her husband's estate in Hillsborough Circuit Court against Masquerade. The lawsuit alleges the club's owners were "negligent" when they allowed Michael Pyne, the man charged with murdering Thomas Laskas, into the club with a knife.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
