Blabbermouth reports: Gary Stern of The Journal News has issued the following report: Word that the date 6/6/06 had nothing to do with any satanic prophesies apparently did not reach the vandal or vandals who spray-painted pentagrams, upside-down crosses and other devilish messages outside St. Joseph's Seminary [in Yonkers, New York] early yesterday.

Workers who showed up at the historic Catholic seminary about 7 a.m. were stunned to see the crosses spray-painted in black on two columns in front of the main entrance. When they moved closer, they saw 6s on each of three steps leading up to the landing, where the words "REIGN IN BLOOD" were painted in thick, black lines.

Alanis Angry Again?
hecklerspray reports: Alanis Morissette once more or less wrote an album slagging off one of her horrible ex-boyfriends. Then she wrote one where she thanked thanked India and consequence for a bunch of stuff, but that's less relevant.

So keep your eyes and ears peeled for the next Alanis Morissette album, because it might just be another 'you were a crap boyfriend' album. And, if it is, it'll be directed squarely at Ryan Reynolds, her fiance. Or should we say ex fiance - according to reports, Alanis Morissette and Ryan Reynolds have split up.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Skid Row Strike Bach
Metal Sludge reports: Though we usually ignore our former singers rants and accusations, we felt we had to respond to his recent boldfaced lies. We do NOT use his image to promote our shows. In fact there is a clause in our show agreement that states "Venue to use ONLY current, band approved photo for advertising and promotion." 

As most of you know he was let go almost a decade ago so we obviously have nothing to gain by connecting the SKID ROW name to his. No bait, no switch. 

Secondly. Now if the claim that Snake is not in the band is true, then someone has perfected human cloning being that it was Snake playing guitar in Burnsville, MN on 5/5/06, Menomonee, WI on 5/6/06 and Las Vegas, NV 5/13/06. And it was Snake with us in Atlanta, GA taping a segment for CNN[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

David Lee Rotten
antiMusic reports: David Lee Roth is hoping for a Van Halen reunion. Maybe it's because he is hitting the very bottom of barrel. First he fails at replacing Howard Stern. We can forgive that, Howard is a tough act to follow but now Dave is doing a parody of himself with "Strummin' With The Devil: Bluegrass Tribute to Van Halen" which Satan released on Tuesday 6/6/06. 

Dave brought his clown act complete with out of tune vocals to the National airwaves the other night and sent millions screaming to sleep with nightmares with his god-awful bluegrass / square dance version of "Jump". If you are brave and want to jump into the fire, you can click the full story link to watch the performance in all of its gory. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Eddie please for the sake of world do the reunion already. Dave needs a real job again. - Click Here for the Full Story
