Smoking is banned in a lot of places, since people don’t want to breathe in the fumes. But to fire someone from their job for smelling like smoke seems a bit excessive, no? Turns out it’s a loaded argument.
Green Day are one of the biggest bands in music in general, regardless of genre. They rose from the ranks of Northern California to Warped Tour perennials to eventually having a musical based on one of their albums (‘American Idiot’). They are about to release a trilogy of albums in the next few months. But it wasn’t always this rosy. Turns out the trio got paid a measly $100 to play Cleveland dive the Euclid Tavern back in 1992, two years before they exploded with ‘Dookie.’
Lokesh Simon James hit Bliss Cabaret, a strip joint in Clearwater, back in March, spending three hours and $600. That’s a pretty steep bill and probably bought him a couple of lap dances and drinks, along with some tips. No big deal, right? Wrong. When he checked his credit card statement a few days later, he discovered a $50,000 charge from the strip club.
This might sound a bit morbid, but Smashing Pumpkins‘ singer Billy Corgan, who just issued ‘Oceania,’ knows which song he would like to have played at his funeral. Turns out it’s one of the singer-guitarist’s own tunes. That’s not really surprising, given the depth and breadth of the Pumpkins’ expansive catalog of alt rock hits, which dominated the airwaves in the ’90s. So which one did he choose?
We’ve heard of cheating before the wedding or during the honeymoon, but in the middle of the actual reception, moments after swapping vows and promising to love, honor, respect and blah blah blah? Well, an Austrian groom has sunk to a new level of douchebaggery by banging a waitress during his wedding reception.
The 10th annual tribute to the late, great Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, who passed away in April 2002 at the tender age of 34 after years of addiction struggles, is set for this August in the Seattle/Tacoma area. It’s a massive celebration, as five days of events and performances have been planned to remember the singer whose definitive voice marked the grunge era of rock ‘n’ roll.
All’s well that ends well. Turns out that the woman who jacked $200,000 in jewelry from Axl Rose in Paris on Tuesday (June 5) was “really just an excited fan,” according to a tweet issued by Rose himself. The three stolen gold-and-diamond necklaces were returned to the Guns N’ Roses singer after the thief, who admitted to mistakenly stealing the baubles, was taken into custody.
Last night’s episode (May 19) was the season finale of Season 10 of that ‘Metal Show’ and it closed on a high note with Pantera and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul, who dropped by to discuss the 20th anniversary edition of ‘Vulgar Display of Power.’ It was a repeat engagement for the sticks handler, who guested on the show back when it filmed in NYC.
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo revealed two pieces of important information about his main band while promoting his Philm side project. In a recent interview, the skinsman confirmed that Slayer are wrapping up a two-song EP due later this year. He revealed that vocalist/bassist Tom Araya is laying down his vocal tracks alongside guitarist Kerry King. He also shared that Slayer will never stray from the left-hand metal path, either.
