Fun with Ozzfest rumors
antiMusic reports: We love a good rumor as much as the next guy but the rumormill has been churning overtime lately, especially when it comes to certain bands and a certain summer festival tour. So we thought it would be fun to look at the latest rumors surrounding who will be playing this year's Sharonfest… oops Ozzfest. 

The latest rumored headliners for Ozzfest: 
Guns N' Roses - We now know that Axl and company are making the rounds at European festivals this Spring but will they headline Ozzfest? It could happen but then again they could easily sellout the same venues on their own and keep all the cash instead of sharing with Sharon. 

AC/DC - Given that Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, two bands that do well on their own, have done the tour in the past it's not too crazy to think of AC/DC heading the fest but again they might be better off on their own. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Cliff Burton Remembered
Blabbermouth reports: METALLICA fan site For Whom Metallica Tolls has posted an interview with the father of METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich, Torben Ulrich. Several excerpts from the interview follow: 

FWMT: What are your thoughts on Cliff Burton ... how the band would be had he not died ... what did you think of him as a person and as a musician? 

Torben: "Not only as a person but also as a musician and maybe that kind of rock musician, I think Cliff was extremely precious and very difficult to replace, or impossibly so. And I say this also because he seemed to have a side to him that still was not fully unfolded, and quite possibly could have taken the band in quite a different direction from the way it went with Jason [Newsted], which is not at all a critique of Jason and his large skills and ears. But more that there was something in Cliff's background and genes that seemed to suggest that something not so muscular could have come to the fore.[see full story for a lot more]- Click Here for the Full Story
