OJ Arrested for Armed Robbery
antiMusic reports: This has nothing to do with music but we figured some of you may be interested. It looks like OJ took a break from hunting down Nicole's real killer at various golf courses to engage in a bit of armed robbery. Those that have been wanting OJ Simpson behind bars, your wish has been granted as the "Juice" was arrested in Las Vegas this weekend and is currently being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center facing some serious time in prison on two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit a crime and burglary with a firearm.

Las Vegas police arrested O.J. Simpson on Sunday, saying he was part of an armed group who burst into a hotel room and snatched memorabilia related to his sports career, reports AP who further report that "Simpson was taken away from The Palms casino-hotel by plainclothes officers a day after the arrest of a golfing buddy who police say accompanied him with a gun in the Thursday night holdup."

OJ could get 30 years for just one count of armed robbery. Simpson claimed that he and the others involved were in the room trying to retrieve stolen items that including his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture he took with the late FBI dictator J. Edgar Hoover. He claims that there were no guns involved but police reportedly seized two firearms they believe were used in the robbery. One other man was arrested and police are on the look out for several more. We'll keep you posted if riots break out in Brentwood but for now if you want to know more about this, then AP will hook you up right- here

Disney Bans Metal, antiMusic calls for Disney Boycott
antiMusic reports: While Disney shrugged off nude photos of a young female star from their teenybopper hit "High School Musical" they have gone into full censorship mode when it comes to heavy metal and hard rock concert on Disney properties. How this effects their metalcore darlings Atreyu we don't know but for other heavy bands, you are no longer welcome at venues on Disney lots. 

The Mickey Mouse execs have launched a war against metal, causing the cancellations of various metal shows at the House of Blues venues at their Disneyland and Disneyworld properties. According to the LA times, five metal concerts have either been moved off those properties or cancelled outright by Live Nation who run the House of Blues venues. Of course, that corporation offered up a lame excuse. John Vlautin, vice president of communications for Live Nation said in a statement last week "House of Blues offers a range of entertainment to match the audience at our venues. It was determined that the mix of entertainment at our two Disney locations should be different from our other venues."

We here at antiMusic will do our part and we will no longer carry any articles related to anything Disney including Hollywood Records until they stop their censorship. We encourage you to join us in this boycott and refrain from all things Disney. Shouldn't be too hard. - find out which bands were banned

Fan Impaled At Concert
antiMusic reports: $5 was just too much to ask to see Papa Roach, Hinder and Buckcherry for one fan but he paid a bigger price when he got the business end of a iron spike while trying to scale a 12 foot fence to speak into the concert.

Contact Music has the story: A Papa Roach fan is recovering in hospital after impaling his thigh on an inch-think spike while trying to climb a 12-foot iron fence to gain access to the Bad Boys of Rock concert in Pennsylvania. 

Firefighters had to cut part of the fence away as the unnamed rock fan fell in and out of consciousness at the York concert on Wednesday (11Sep07), which also featured performances by Hinder and Buckcherry. The fan underwent surgery on Wednesday night.- more on this story

Kid Rock Says A Bitch Got Slapped
antiMusic reports: Kid Rock spoke with Double R & Steve The Producer from the BJ Shea Morning Experience on 99.9 KISW in Seattle last week. He addressed the incident at the VMAs where he punched Tommy Lee (T-Bonehead didn't get any shots in). Despite speculation that the fight was centered around Pam Anderson, Rock says that isn't so and our favorite part of the interview was when he responded to Tommy Lee saying that all Kid gave him was a "bitch slap". To which Kid Rock said, "He said it was a bitch slap and I couldn't agree more. A bitch got slapped."

Steve The Producer was kind enough to send over a few more highlights for us to enjoy: Kid Rock denied that he and Tommy are fighting over Pamela Anderson. As far as he's concerned, Tommy or anybody else can have her. "The last thing I wanna do is to keep having my name associated with Pam and [Tommy Lee]." He added that divorcing Pam and getting out of that relationship was, quote, "the best thing I ever did."

Kid said the fight started because of, "Five or six years of complete and utter disrespect" that Tommy has shown him. Things really came to a head during the divorce. Pam and Tommy were throwing a birthday party for one of their kids, and Tommy took Pam's BlackBerry when she wasn't looking, and started e-mailing Kid Rock. Kid says it was, quote, "Some of the most horrendous things I'd ever heard. . . very disrespectful things." But Kid Rock didn't allow himself to be goaded into an e-mail war. He says, quote, "I'm not a talker. I just e-mailed him back and said, 'I will see you one day,' period. And when I came back from the bathroom at those awards and he was sitting right next to my seat at my table, that's it, that's enough. And I gave him the opportunity to stand up like a man, and he did not. And if you watch the tape, he doesn't start running his mouth until the security guards grab his arms."

As for Tommy's recent apology to pretty much everyone at the VMAs BUT Kid Rock, Kid says, quote, "I'm not apologizing to anyone, because whoever put us all in the room, whatever, they got what they wanted. And this has been a long time coming. . . I did what any man would have done."- Check out the full interview here

Guilty Bizkit
antiMusic reports: Fred Durst is not only guilty of producing gawdawful music he is also guilty of a variety of misdemeanors including trying to play bumper cars with people in LA. The Limp Careered Bizkit entered a "no contest" plea to seven misdemeanor charges last week. Some of the highlights include charges of assault, battery and reckless driving. 

You see Durst, who has been known to get a pie in the face from time to time, deliberately hit two people with his car. The incident happened way back in October of last year in Los Angeles. Maybe he was frustrated with his lack of media coverage and was trying to generate some interest or maybe they gave him an honest opinion of his music? We don't know, but we do know the Limp one put himself on the mercy of the court for these crimes and got off pretty light.

He was handed the gift of a 120-day suspended jail sentence (meaning he doesn't actually have to stay at the Paris Hilton Chino).- more on this story

antiMusic/PR reports: Monster In The Machine is hitting the road starting September 26 to spread the word about their ethereal debut album, BUTTERFLY PINNED, which was released August 21 on Emotional Syphon Recordings, the independent label owned by Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer. [we have a review going up for this CD this week and Matthew gave it 5 stars saying "The album features sounds reminiscent of many genres from rock to alternative and many of the songs have David Bowie styled vocals though there are traces of the Beach Boys, Chris Cornell, and Interpol as well. As a whole it flows surprisingly well for being so diverse" We're working on setting up a Monster in the Machine week as well.] 

The band will be performing three acoustic shows with Riders On The Storm (featuring Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzerek of The Doors) before heading out with Israeli band Rock Four on a three-week tour sponsored by KCRW-FM (the prestigious and groundbreaking Los Angeles radio station) starting October 6.

Doug Ardito (bass, who performed with Crawford in Cellophane) and Josh Freese (drums) appear on BUTTERFLY PINNED, but will not be part of the touring line-up due to prior commitments with other musical projects.- more on this story
