She Wants Revenge Week: Written in Blood
antiMusic reports: She Wants Revenge recently returned with their sophomore CD This Is Forever. to celebrate the release and to give you a little more insight into the songs we asked Adam Bravin to pick his five favorite tracks from the duo's latest and tell us a bit about each song. Here is Adam with today's song:

Written in Blood - We wanted to do something that reminded us of some of the tracks from the first album. We broke out a drum machine we used on the first album and made a beat. It definitely felt like something from before, so we added the bass and guitar and it quickly became something we loved. The last thing we added was the cowbell, which seems to be everybody's favorite part. Yeah, yeah, I know, more cowbell..

Manson Buys Human Remains Instead of Paying Band?
Contact Music reports: Marilyn Manson is facing more legal action from his former keyboardist after a new complaint was filed, accusing the shock rocker of spending the band's earnings on items made from human remains.

Madonna Wayne Gacy - real name Stephen Gregory Bier Jr. - made the revelation in new legal papers added to his existing lawsuit against the singer, in which he accuses the star of failing to pay him during his time in the band. Bier filed the original lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in August (07), in which he claims Manson squandered his band's earnings on "sick and disturbing" Nazi memorabilia and a skeleton of a young Chinese girl, among other unusual items.

Bier claims Manson, his business manager, lawyer and the band's manager "filched millions of dollars" from the band's earnings, after promising Bier "partnership proceeds" from the group in 1993. And in the new complaint filed by Bier's lawyer Keith Fink on Wednesday (21Nov07), Bier says Manson bought another skeleton of a man in a wheelchair, and African masks made of human skin - both illegal in the U.S. - according to the New York Post's gossip column PageSix. - more on this story

Nutty Model Gets off Light for Fatal Suicide Crash
Punknews.org reports: The suicidal lingerie model responsible for the deaths of Silkworm drummer Michael Dahlquist, John Glick, guitarist of the Returnables and Doug Meis, drummer of Exo and the Dials has been sentenced to eight years. [she could be out in 2009 according to the Chicago Times]

According to her testimony, the killer, Jeanette Sliwinski, was attempting to commit suicide -- not murder -- when she drove at nearly 90 mph into the back of a car stopped at a red light in 2005. She also apologized to the families of those she killed, saying she did not mean to hurt anyone, although it is uncertain how she expected to hit an occupied car at nearly 90mph without injuring anyone aside from herself.

A defense psychiatrist had testified that Sliwinski, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, suffered from a bipolar disorder with psychotic episodes, leading her to crash her car at 87 m.p.h. into stopped traffic at a Skokie stoplight. - [read more about this and how her attorney blames her doctor for the murders]

Adler Pulls an Adler and Nixes Tour At Last Minute
antiMusic reports: European fans were once again disappointed by Steven Adler as the former Guns N' Roses drummer pulled out of a tour at the last minute. At least this time he didn't get to Europe and decide to fire the entire band a few shows into the tour. The reason given for the last minute cancellation is health/personal issues. Rumors suggest that he refused to board the plane, but we could not confirm that.

Steven's GNR cover band, Adler's Appetite, were to tour Europe to mark the 20th anniversary of the GNR classic "Appetite for Destruction". Chip Z'nuff issued a statement to fans about the abrupt turn of events: "We sincerely apologize to all our friends and fans for the cancellation of this tour. Of course, Steven loves to play and meet his fans. Unfortunately, he has some personal issues that prevented him from participating. He was optimistic about doing the shows, but when it came down to it, he just couldn't.

"Steven's like a brother to us, and we just want to see him healthy. We're looking forward to making up these shows next year. Please forgive us, and thank you for your patience and understanding. Peace." - more on this story
