Houston Calls Lose Kenny
punkbands reports: Kenny has left Houston Calls. He writes: This is Kenny here, and I'm writing to unfortunately say that I'm leaving the band. I've been in Houston Calls for almost 4 years now, and it's been amazing to tour with my best friends and create music I truly enjoy to play and listen to. But when I was younger I accrued a very large debt from paying for college with student loans, which wasn't cheap let me tell you. For a long time I was able to avoid paying my debt thanks to deferment and making small payments. 

Creditors will only allow you to push them off to the side for so long, and mine are back after me with a vengeance. I hate to say this but because of my financial problems I can't continue to be in Houston Calls. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

GNR Tour Report
PR reports: Rob De Luca (Sebastian Bach Band/Spread Eagle) reporting in from the Gn'R/Bach Tour: "The crowd responses have been AMAZING! The show in Quebec City was beyond my wildest dreams. The audience was deafening for the entire hour. There's far too many great shows to list. Both bands are sharp and consistently delivering powerful sets! We're now making our way to the West coast.

On Guns' off nights, Baz headlines the local theatre/club. On those shows we open for ourselves... Metal Mike Chlasciak (Bach, Halford), Bobby Jarzombek (Bach, Halford) and myself do an extreme metal set of PainmuseuM and Halford tunes. It's so much fun doing two sets."
