Van Halen Reschedule Date
antiMusic reports: Welcome to the latest edition of the Van Halen shuffle with some good news for the fans in St. Louis. Remember show that was supposed to take place this past weekend that was nixed because of the tour rescheduling? We have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is the band has rescheduled the show and tickets are now on sale. Plus tickets for the original show will reportedly be honored at the new show. But check with the ticketseller to confirm. 

Now the bad news is that you'll have to wait until March to see them. The show is now set to take place on March 30th at the Scottrade Center. That leaves a big ol' hole in the touring plans between the band's Dec 30th show in Vegas and this new date so we can all start the speculating now about what will fill the time. - dates

Ricky Parent RIP
antiMusic reports: It's with a heavy heart that I report that Enuff Z'nuff drummer Ricky Parent passed away on Saturday after a long battle with cancer. Normally you would now find some biographical information but I knew Ricky and would like to first say a few words. 

The one thing I will always remember about Ricky is that unfailing smile. There could be some of the usual rock n roll drama going on around him but that smile would never fail. Aside from that smile, he always impressed me because he honestly did live for the stage. He could be playing for thousands of people or a couple hundred and you could always see the excitement in his face as he sat behind his drum kit. I remember seeing the band during the "Tweaked" tour and Ricky was sounding amazing as usual only to find out after the show that he was playing with a broken foot. But that was just the kind of guy he was, he wouldn't let a little thing like a broken foot keep him off the stage and playing for his fans. 

And I know it does sound cliché but he truly did love his fans. As Chip once told me, "they were like oxygen to him." At every show you always knew where you could find Ricky before and after the show and that was out with his extended family, the fans. - more on this story

Johnny Rotten Threatens Fan During Sex Pistols Set
antiMusic reports: Times sure have changed. Back in the day it was customary for audience members to spit on punk bands while they performed but the frontman for the Sex Pistol will not silently be an onstage target! While he wasn't spit on, someone did toss an overpriced drink at him and scored a bullseye with Johnny Rotten's face, sending the singer into a tizzy. 
The band were playing to 500 fans at a warm-up show at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. According to Reuters, a 21-year-old who snuck into the show decided it might be fan to play drink tag with Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon a.k.a. Johnny Rotten. After being hit, Rotten dripping with anger, threatened to kill the "coward" responsible if he caught him. There are no indications he caught him but a Reuters reporter caught up to the tosser for a comment. 

The LA gig was booked for the band to get their chops together before they kick off their U.K. reunion tour and according to Reuters they needed the practice as Rotten forgot the lyrics to the show opener "Holidays in the Sun" and later improvised lyrics during "Stepping Stone" to include the line "Paris Hilton, kiss my arse." Forgotten lyrics aside, the band was reportedly plagued by sound problems and heat. Read the Reuters report for- more

Morrissey Fires Support Act Over Gay Comment 
antiMusic reports: Morrissey has booted KristeenYoung from his tour after the duo's namesake made an off-color remark during their set Tuesday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. The remark was made in response to audience chants for Morrissey to take the stage with Kristeen Young responding, "Morrissey gives good head, I mean, er, cunnilingus," according to reports. Can't have that! So the duo was sent packing by the Moz camp.

Young address the controversy on the group's Myspace page: "My band, KRISTEENYOUNG, have been asked to leave the Morrissey tour. Although I have been advised not to respond or issue a statement, my feelings are that I must. We have been asked to leave because of something I said on stage at The Hammerstein Ballroom, in New York City, this past Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the statement has been perceived as being profane (when, actually, one of the two words in question is a scientific term found in junior high, health class text books, and the other word, I feel most would agree, is lightweight slang) or defamatory. What I said was part of a thread of stage statements I made throughout our set. They were metaphorical and overstated to make an artistic point. 

"The 'offending' statement, in particular, was in no way a literal statement, and was very much in keeping with the tone of my writing in general. I reach for beauty and intelligence in my lyrics, but try to retain a bit of the everyday in them. Maybe the statement was a bit TOO everyday. Maybe I misjudged… but I meant no harm. I love Morrissey with all of my heart, soul, body, spirit, to the core of my existence and always will. These will be the only words I will ever write or speak on the subject ever again. Please don't ask for an interview or e-mail me with questions. Thanks to those who understand and who are brave enough to say so." [to the angry Moz fans that wrote in, the use of the word gay in the headline was supposed to mean "silly" but many take it as homosexual]- Myspace page

Bon Jovi World Tour 
antiMusic reports: Here is part of the official announcement about the Bon Jovi tour (minus most of the hype and an outright lie): "We're starting in New Jersey and then taking it to the world," Jon Bon Jovi proclaimed on stage Thursday night at the grand opening of The Prudential Center in his home state of New Jersey.

Ozzy Who? Heaven and Hell Eye New CD
antiMusic reports: This one might get Sharon in a bit of an eggtossing tizzy because the Ozzy camp keeps dropping hints that he will rejoin his former Sabbath bandmates for a tour and possibly an album. However, Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler tells a rather different story as it seems the band is more than pleased with their current activities touring the classic Heaven and Hell line-up with Ronnie James Dio out front. It's going so well in fact that they are eyeing a new studio album. This according to a press release issued by Noble PR, the firm handling the band's upcoming UK Tour and reads in part: 

There's been much speculation of a forthcoming Black Sabbath reunion with the original line-up with Ozzy Osbourne at the helm, but founding member Geezer Butler has adamantly denied such rumors. "Heaven and Hell are currently in discussions with various record labels about recording a brand new studio album in 2008," says Butler.

Black Sabbath's recent incarnation as Heaven & Hell- fronted by Ronnie James Dio on lead vocals, sees the seminal heavy metal band undertaking a major UK arena tour this November. The band's moniker is taken after Black Sabbath's critically acclaimed 1980 studio album "Heaven and Hell" featuring the title track and the breakout hit "Neon Nights". - more on this story

Kid Rock A Song Thief?
TMZ reports: TMZ has learned a man named Maurice Foreman, straight from the hills of Kentucky, claims it's no coincidence that his song "Slow Death" is similar to Kid Rock's hit "So Hott" -- and he's suit filin' mad! 

Foreman sought Steppin' Out's Chaunce Hayden's help in finding legal representation, claiming that he has the copyright to his song written in 1997. Foreman claims that Rock sings "so hot" three times, just like he sang "slow death," and says that the lead guitar notes are identical.

Unfortunately, Maurice tells Hayden, he's "a poor guy who works in a factory so I don't have a lot of money," which has made it hard for him to find a lawyer, but if he does have a case, thar's money in them thar hills!

antiMusic reports: Just what the world needed, a Jessica Simpson perfume. Anyone up for smelling like tuna? Or is chicken? Why is called Chicken of the Sea?

Metal Bands Injured in Bus Crash
Candlelight reports: Russia's Darkside webzine has reported that several members of the Polish extreme metal acts Decapitated and Crionics were badly injured in a bus crash which took place when the two bands were traveling to Gomel, Belarus (located in the former Soviet Union) to perform a concert Monday night (October 29) as part of their joint tour.

Hippy University To End War and Drug Abuse?
antiMusic reports: Rich old hippies don't die, they start universities. While most "normal" universities are up to their ivy in aging hippies masquerading as professors, a 60s icon has decided to start a university devoted to transcendental meditation. A movement that lost a lot of hippy cred when the Beatles famously fled after a short flirtation with it (Ringo didn't like the food but George actually stuck with it).

Now Donovan, who's best work may have been in a Alice Cooper song (Billion Dollar Babies), wants to build the Invincible Donovan University. The man that gave us Hurdy Gurdy Man" and "Mellow Yellow," now thinks the world is ready for the enlightenment. Or at least Glasgow or Edinburgh might be ready for it. He still hasn't decided which fine city will host his "oommmm" factory according to the Associated Press. 

"I know it sounds like an airy-fairy hippie dream to go on about '60s peace and love," said Donovan." But the world is ready for this now, it is clear this is the time." It appears that his guru told him to build the university way back in 1968 but he's just now getting around to it. "The Maharishi told me during that 1968 visit that I should build a university in Edinburgh. I went to my room and drew a beautiful dome-shaped place of learning," he said Friday. You'll never guess who he teamed up with for this project. Will give you a hint the partner said of this undertaking: "For a country the size of Scotland it would take only 250 students meditating to protect Scotland from its enemies and to bring peace, to stop violence and drug abuse." While we try to stop laughing, you can find out who the mystery man is- more on this story

Kid Rock Off The Hook as Lee Drops Charges
antiMusic reports: Remember a few weeks back at the MTV Video Music Awards when Kid Rock made the show actually entertaining when he bitch-slapped Tommy Lee? At the time the former Motley Thru drummer reportedly pressed charges but has now apparently decided to let the whole incident drop along with his complaint.

Las Vegas police cited Kid Rock for misdemeanor battery following the slap heard round the world, but on Monday the Clark County District Attorney's Office announced that will they "will not pursue a battery charge against Robert James Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, involving a confrontation with Tommy Lee on Sept. 9, 2007, at Palms Hotel and Casino," Chief Deputy D.A. Ron Bloxham said in a statement. 

"It should be noted that Tommy Lee has requested that there be no prosecution relating to the incident and there were no injuries to either person." Bruised ego aside, Tommy let it go. Now if you missed the blow by blow on this feud including the verbal fights that took place in statements and interviews, E! has the whole sorry mess laid out for your reading enjoyment- right here

Shots Fired At Lordi
Metal Underground reports: According to ESCtoday.com, LORDI's manager and bodyguard were shot at, and a fan was robbed, following the band's performance in Louisville, Kentucky Friday night (October 26). The events started after the concert when LORDI mainman Mr. Lordi, his wife Johanna and the band's keyboardist Awa had just entered the tour bus. The rest of the group went into a nearby bar for a drink. Their tour manager Rikk Scholvinck and a bodyguard were escorting some of their fans towards the bus when a van appeared next to the bus and four or five teenagers jumped out of it.

"Also one of the boys froze on the spot while the others fled away, including Rikk and the bodyguard while another man started shooting at them. Luckily he missed and no one was hurt. Rikk ran to the bar and called the police who arrived soon.

Ozzy Used To Nab Deadbeat Dads
BW&BK reports: Some fans who turned out for a party before Monday's (October 29th) Ozzy Osbourne-Rob Zombie concert found out they'd been handed tricks instead of treats by the law when sheriff's deputies crashed the party. 

The approximately 40 people who answered letters of invitation turned up at The Venue at Playmakers for what they thought would be a festive party before the big concert at the Fargodome. 

The Venue event was sponsored by PDL Productions – a bogus firm created by Paul D. Laney, the Cass County sheriff, to help catch scofflaws who ignored court summons and child support payments or failed to pay fines. 

Instead of partying down, attendees were arrested on outstanding warrants. "It was more of a warrant party," Laney said. - more on this story

Trail Of Dead Vs Interscope 
Gigwise reports: ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead main man Conrad Keeley has launched as scathing attack on his band's former label Interscope Records. The band have recently parted ways with the imprint having released their last three albums with them, including their latest tour-de-force 'So Divided.' 

However, it appears the parting was not very amicable, with Keeley using a blog post to take a swipe at the label and its staff. Clearly frustrated by the apparent lack of publicity the label gave Trail of Dead, Keeley wrote: "At the expense of a massive debt to them of half a million dollars, they really helped us to grow. 

"They've taught us about the worthlessness of A&R people, how to yell at idiots running an art department, and how to shake hands with smiling retailers who have no idea who you are. Furthermore, their idea of marketing (was) keeping it a secret that we'd released a record."

....Alice Cooper: Between High School & Old School
It would be one thing to give Alice acclaim for continuing to create innovative and vital music, but it's a whole other thing seeing him live. Each time I saw him he was promoting a "bare bones" stage show, however, the show still packed more of a punch than 90% of the shows on the road today. - Read the full Alice Cooper: Between High School & Old School review
....Down III: Over the Under
The release of a new Down album constitutes something of an event. Down III: Over the Under, in fact, represents just their second release since their legendary debut, NOLA which was released more than ten years ago. (4 stars) - Read the full Down III: Over the Under review
....Britney Spears - Blackout
The new album by pop tart princess Britney Spears "Blackout" should have stayed blacked out. The album shows absolutely no imagination or creativity. "Blackout" is not only a waste of good money, but it is also a waste of good time in listening to it. - Read the full Britney Spears - Blackout review
