Static-X week: Evil Disco Behemoth
Day in Rock reports: We've had a lot of fun with our special Static-X week with Wayne sharing info on some of his favorite songs on the new CD 'Cannibal'. In fact, we had so much fun we're going to continue next week! But you don't have to wait til Monday, today Wayne explains the track "BEHEMOTH". Here is Wayne: "One goal of mine for Cannibal was to get back to the Evil Disco a bit more than our recent efforts. This song is 100% pure Evil Disco. I started with the intro programming which is full-on dance floor material, then just started building up the layers. First the live drum beat, then the guitar. I love this song, before you know it you've gone from dancing to banging your head." Grab a listen of the track at the full story link and if you still haven't picked up the new CD, this weekend would be a good time to do it. See you next week with our conclusion of this special! - Click Here for the Full Story

Former KISS Guitarist Mark St John Dies
Sleazeroxx.com reports: Former KISS guitarist MARK ST JOHN passed away this morning of a brain hemorrhage. He was 51. Mark replaced KISS guitarist VINNIE VINCENT in 1984, only to shortly thereafter develop Reiters Syndrome, a form or arthritis, which left his hand too swollen at times to play guitar. Mark played on all but one of the tracks of the 1984 Animalize album. On the subsequent tour his condition had deteriorated and was only able to play 1 full and 3 partial shows. BRUCE KULICK was called in as a temporary guitarist to play the remainder of the partial sets as well as the rest of the tour. Mark's condition was not improving and sadly had to soon step down to have Kulick take his place permanently on December 8,1985. 

His musical career not over, Mark later formed the band White Tiger in 1986 and then interestingly enough teamed up with former KISS drummer PETER CRISS to record a demo in 1990. A self-produced CD entitled the MARK ST JOHN Project was released in 1999. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
