IRON MAIDEN Raise £8000 In Auction For Former Drummer

IRON MAIDEN have managed to raise nearly £8000 from their Clive Burr auction and will donate the proceeds to the Clive Burr Multiple Sclerosis Trust Fund.

According to the group's official web site, bids were received from around the world. The Stage Eddie was bought by an eager Japanese Fan and is currently getting ready to be shipped all the way to the Far East. 

Former IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr is suffering from multiple sclerosis � a disease of unknown cause. The disorder is causing him intermittent numbness and can affect his balance. At present there is no known cure for MS, although he is helping test new drugs in the hope that his body response may contribute to a cure.

Clive joined the band at the very end of December 1979 and played on the first three albums, Iron Maiden, Killers and Number of the Beast, and toured extensively with the band over this groundbreaking period before leaving in early 1983.

MEGADETH To Issue Posthumous Compilation CD

On September 10th, MEGADETH will issue a posthumous CD, entitled Still, Alive... And Well?, containing studio and live recordings spanning their entire career, including previously unreleased live performances of "Use The Man" and "Conjuring". The album will surface via Sanctuary Records.

The title of the CD was chosen by frontman Dave Mustaine himself. "You may want to know how I named the record," he states in the record's sleeve-notes. "Well, one of the dumbest questions that I was ever asked by an interviewer, and it happened more than once, was: 'What do you want written on your tombstone?' I told them, 'That I am still, alive and well!' "

The complete track listing for the album is as follows:

01. Time/Use The Man (live)
02. Conjuring (live)
03. In My Darkest Hour (live)
04. Sweating Bullets (live)
05. Symphony Of Destruction (live)
06. Holy Wars (live)
07. Moto Psycho
08. Dread And Fugitive Mind
09. Promises
10. The World Needs A Hero
11. Burning Bridges
12. Return To Hangar

The RIAA can kiss our asses, Verizon

A really very good interview with one of the lead hands over at Verizon, on of the US' largest internet service providers. Many ISP's have been suprised and shocked over recent legislation introduced in the Senate and they are taking a firm stand against it. Some ISP's are threatening to ban RIAA folks from their networks, some are seeding P2P networks with bogus files to draw attacks, blocking that attacker from the rest of the network. Noticably absent in this is AOL, parent of Time-Warner.
