Alice Vs Slipknot
Blabbermouth reports: Jeff Kerby of KNAC.COM recently conducted an exclusive interview with ALICE COOPER. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

KNAC.COM: Aren't there a lot of people out there though who have this insatiable need and desire to believe that Alice is a living, breathing being out wreaking havoc twenty-four hours a day? 

Alice: "I've tried to believe it myself even though I don't believe it about MARILYN MANSON. The guys in SLIPKNOT look like they work at The Gap when they aren't in SLIPKNOT. I was more stunned than anyone on that one. They all came and sat down after the show, and they were all wearing these Gap shirts with little short haircuts. It was like… 'So the guys in SLIPKNOT are where? Where are the guys in SLIPKNOT?' I was like, 'Really?' So that was funny to me, but I totally get it. If I tried to be Alice Cooper all the time…"[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Ozzy Murder
Blabbermouth reports: U.K's Life Style Extra is reporting that a rock fanatic who changed his name to Ozzy Osbourne stabbed a friend to death inside his own apartment, a court heard on Thursday (Sept. 22).

Gary Ozzy Osbourne, 42, was born Gary Bacon — but changed his name by deed poll to mirror that of the rock star, the Old Bailey heard.

In January last year, he drove to the home in Enfield, north London, of Gary Hunt — a 33-year old small-time drug dealer who Osbourne had been friends with for a number of years, the jury was told.

Mr. Hunt, a keen DJ, was described by friends as being "easy-going" and someone who "wouldn't do any harm or hurt anyone" — but he and Osbourne got into an argument, it was alleged.

Osbourne then stabbed him a number of times and left him fatally injured, the court heard.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Bushless Anthrax
Blabbermouth reports: In a brand-new interview with Revolver magazine — his first since being "replaced" as the voice of ANTHRAX by his predecessor, Joey Belladonna — vocalist John Bush confirmed that the original idea for the band's current reunion trek was to bring both Belladonna and Bush on tour, as ANTHRAX had planned in 2000, but Bush wasn't interested. "At one time, I had been willing to tour with Joey, but now everything is different," Bush says. "It just wasn't in my heart. I figured I had been in this band 12 and a half years, and we felt positive about what we had done, and we all thought our last album, 'We've Come for You All', was the best record we'd made together. So I just wanted to move forward and do another album."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Help One of Our Own
Day in Rock reports: A couple months back, antiMusic contributor Kwazar was in Vegas on his Harley when he got hit by a Cadillac and suffered some major injuries. Right now Kwazar is wheelchair bound and awaiting some more surgeries so he can get hopefully back to normal. Kwazar's day gig is a cinematographer and he's worked on shows like Angel but he is best known in the Hollywood rock community for his excellent concert footage. While he says he is just grateful to be alive and is reluctant to take help from his friends, a couple of those friends set up a benefit concert for him that will take place this Saturday (Oct 1st) at the Malibu Inn in Malibu. 

On a personal note, I have to say that in the "town where everything is fake," Kwazar really stands out as one of the coolest and most genuine people I've met there. He's an old school rocker that I'm proud to call a friend and I know a lot of people in Hollywood feel the same. Some of those people will be performing at the benefit show including Bang Tango and Little Caesar plus an all star jam (I have no idea who is involved there but a lot of stars know and love Kwazar so who knows?). If you're close to LA and can make it out on Saturday, please do. The cover is only $15 and the proceeds will go to Kwazar. 

See the full story for more info on the "I got run over and the Cadillac won" fundraiser / benefit / celebration for our friend Kwazar.- Click Here for the Full Story

Get Hexed By Bigelf for Free!
Day in Rock reports: "You know they say…'downloading is killing cd sales'… bulls***, bad music and homogenized entertainment are killing cd sales, period," writes Bigelf frontman Damon Fox on the band's website and to further make that point, "We are giving you our music for free, simply because we can and no else will." 

Right now the band is offering a free download of "Hex" their 2003 album that hit the Top 10 in Sweden and also landed on our Album of the Year chart. Because of the brain dead nature of American A&R execs the album has been hard to get a hold of in the states but no more, click the full story link to find out why they made a big impression on several of antiMusic's writers with their Sabbath meets Pink Floyd sound! 

The band is currently working on their next album so you aren't likely to see any tour dates, but place this in your subconscious, if you ever get the chance to see these guys live, you best lie cheat or steal to do so, because they put on one of the best REAL rock shows around.
