Report for 02/16/06
GNR Leak
antiMusic reports: A new Guns N' Roses track has made its way onto the Internet. The track appears to be a near studio quality demo of the song "I.R.S.", the same song that was played on Eddie Trunk's radio show by New York Mets' Mike Piazza in August of 2003. Several poor quality clips leaked onto the net last April. 

We also have reports that another new song titled "Better" has been partially leaked. A 1 minute 2o second clip of the song is reportedly making the rounds on the Internet as well. 

It is not known if the final versions of "I.R.S." and "Better" will make it onto the long delayed Chinese Democracy, but the leak of "I.R.S." may settle some fears of the GNR faithful that the new album would be a huge departure from the classic GNR sound. It still sounds like GNR, just further down the road from Use Your Illusion. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Silly News: Paris as Mother Teresa
hecklerspray reports: T Rajeevnath, an award winning Indian film maker, is set to make a biopic of the life of Mother Teresa. Obviously, casting for this role is quite difficult. Mostly because finding someone to play the part of a saintly god pest in Hollywood is, quite frankly, impossible. Hollywood celebs are polar opposites to the do-good japes of the famous nun, and their antics are more akin to self promotion and shameless attention seeking.

Naturally, T Rajeevnath has put the feelers out for Paris Hilton for the role. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Bush Sodomy
Blabbermouth reports: MINISTRY's upcoming album, "Rio Grande Blood", is dedicated to George W. Bush.

"MINISTRY is harder and faster than ever because of him. But I guarantee you that he will be out of the White House before the end of the year.

Close-Up: If you sodomize him, yes.

"That would be rough sex," chuckles Jourgensen. "But it will take a 12-pack of beer and four bottles of wine for me to be able to f*** him. What a great idea! We cause a big scandal, so that he's forced to resign. I'll see what I can do about it." [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Tool Guestless
Blabbermouth reports: According to a posting on Toolband.com, TOOL's first CD since 2001's "Lateralus", which is tentatively scheduled for release in late April or early May, will not feature any guest musicians, despite widespread rumors to the contrary. "Although I suggested to the band members that it might be interesting to attempt to get someone from the other side (i.e. someone deceased) to play on the CD, this didn't happen (that we're aware of, at least) due, for the most part, to contractual disputes (mainly on their end, it's sad to say)," reads the message on the site.

Pistol Defends Green Day
punkbands reports: Following this story we ran about Johnny (Rotten) Lydon trashing Green Day, another Sex Pistol has stepped up to defend the band. Glen Matlock tells contactmusic.com as long as the group is entertaining, they're fine by him.

"I think they are just doing what bands do. When Green Day first came out," he tells the website, "I thought it was kind of funny that there was this Californian band doing this very English sound. But I went to see Green Day with my son, who's a fan, and it was very impressive."
