Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog! (9/23)

Kicking off this week's WRWU Blog is a little something for you A-Hole Bob!

* Iconic rock band RUSH will be dropping a two-disc live album "Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland" as well as "Moving Pictures: Live 2011" on November 7th. As Peter Griffin said, "Canada sucks!"... just kidding... sorta....

* Drummer Matt Sorum of THE CULT, GNR, & VELVET REVOLVER is selling his bass drums from THE CULT'S "Beyond Good and Evil" tour.

* Kirk Hammett of METALLICA has custom hand-made guitar straps made from high-end Italian leather for sale. You can purchase those from www.kirk-hammett.com

* Speaking of METLLICA, their album poster with LOU REED has been banned from London's Underground for resembling graffiti too closely.



* I wonder if London's Underground will ban STEEL PANTHER'S new album cover?



* PEARL JAM, hot on the heels of their new documentary, announced they are halfway done with a new album!

* Looks like NEIL YOUNG'S following in the foot steps of KEITH RICHARDS and SAMMY HAGAR by putting out his own autobiography in the fall of 2012.

* DISTURBED to put out a B-Sides compiolation "The Lost Children" before the year's up.

* Oh and if anyone care's, cause everybody huts... sometimes... R.E.M. called it quits this week.

Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog

Not to toot my own horn but I honestly laughed the most during this weeks Weekly Rock Wind Up Vlog. If you haven't watched it yet, please do and have your friends take a gander at it too.

Just a couple few pieces to make note of from this weeks Rock news:

*Iggy Pop broke his foot in concert, continued to play, will now be sidelined but intends and looks to be making a strong recovery and all in the Stooges feel like they'll be rescheduling the rest of the tour for the end of October/early November.

*Anthrax, Testament, and Death Angel announcing this week they are gonna hit the road together in October and November. No stops, yet, planned for KC. Closest will be in Wichita on the 18th of October.

*Word, via a fan-site, is the mixing is complete on the new Van Halen album. Still no date of release or track-listing nor if this info is factual or not.

*Five Finger Death Punch guitarist, Jason Hook, was interviewed this week about the upcoming album "American Capitalist". He stated it was pretty much an extension of "War is the Answer". Ergo, if you liked "War" you'll like "American Capitalist".

*An Eric Clapton & Wynton Marsalis collaboration will be out on CD and DVD later this month. Filmed in April, where the two paired up for two sold out shows in NYC at the Lincoln Center, their performance was actually shown on the big screen this week and I saw it. It's pretty amazing and I, for one, can't wait for it to drop on Tuesday.

Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog (8/19)

Greetings and salutations to you all out there in the cyberworld. Many thanks for reading through this week's WRWU Blog. I'll do my best to entertain, educate and not suck. Let us begin!

*AC/DC wine? Yep. Looks like the fellas are getting into the wine business soon and speaking of AC/DC. Bon Scott area bassist Mark Evans is putting out a tell all book about the Bon-era in November titled "Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside AC/DC.

*Metallica and Lou Reed have confirmed their album will be out on November 1st.

*After nearly splitting up a year ago it seems guitar god Slash and his wife, Perla, are to renew their wedding vows later this month in Ibiza.

*Slipknot/Stone Sour front-man Corey Taylor, again, in the news this week with the statement that he and Duff McKagan have been working on music together. He did also state that there were no hard feelings with him not joining Velvet Revolver.

*As expected Shinedown to re-team with producer Rob Cavallo. Cavallo was producer for Shinedown's most successful album to date in "The Sound of Madness". Be on the look out in the new year for the new, as-of-yet, untitled album.

*I know we don't play him but I'm a huge fan of Tom Waits and felt like this story was worth sharing. Seems his website, tomwaits.com, is encouraging people to come to his site on Tuesday the 23rd where he'll possibly roll out a new song and/or discuss his new album.

*Metal Bible is now available in English. Initially published in 2005 in Swedish and Dutch it's finally ready for American eyes... that can't read Swedish or Dutch. Some of the people featured include; David Ellefson, Brian "Head" Welch and Iron Maiden's Nicko McBrain.

*Pretty cool thing going on in NYC September 12 at the Best Buy Theater and it's the second Metal Masters Clinic. Who's on board to participate in this? Charlie Benante, Anthrax's drummer. Frank Bello, Anthrax bassist. Kerry King... it's fucking Kerry King, if ya ask you better learn! David Ellefson of Megadeth and Mike Portnoy. This is a free clinic but will have limited numbers. If you go, tell me how it is.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog. Feel free to share with your friends!

Weekly Rock Wind Up (8/12)

And so here we are again with YOUR Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog where I attempt to keep you in the loop with all of Rock-n-Roll's comings and goings. Let us begin... shall we?

*Jack White and Bob Dylan are probably the two biggest stars to contribute to a brand new collection of recordings of songs by country music legend Hank Williams. "The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams" is slated to be released on October 3rd and will have a Who's-Who list of artist contributing to never-before-heard songs from the late songwriter. And just who are some of the names in conjuction to Dylan and White? Alan Jackson, Norah Jones, Levon Helm, Sheryl Crow, Merle Haggard and Dylan's own son Jakob.

*I know neither of the following artist show up on The Rock but we know who they are in Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse. As we all know Winehouse died on July 23rd and it seems that Gaga wants to portray her in biopic.

*Another one of those, "Holy shit! Is that album really 20 years old?!?" If we're talking about Metallica's "Black Album" then yes, it is! And to commemorate it a litney of artist have covered the songs and will be available in the September issue of Germany's Metal Hammer magazine. Some of the artist include; DevilDriver, Sodom, Motorjesus and LEMMY!!

*"God Bless Ozzy" the documentary about rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, and produced/directed by his son Jack, hits theaters on the 24th and 29th on this month. There will be showings in and around KC. Follow this link to see where a showtime will be near you; http://www.fathomevents.com/originals/series/godblessozzy0824_29.aspx

*Looks like RATT to make another return to the world of Rock-n-Roll in 2012. If you recall the resurfaced, initially, last year with "Infestation" which won some critical acclaim. However, they briefly toured then went on indefinate hiatus.

Weekly Rock Wind Up Blog

So much music news to pimp out this week.

*I'm aware we don't play any Miles Davis but many of those in the world of Rock-n-Roll know who Davis is and his importance on the world of music and the legacy he left behind. Thus, it's with extreme enthusiasm I share with you that actor Don Cheadle is making the Miles Davis Biopic a reality! The storyline, as of now, will focus on one day in Davis' life with Herbie Hancock handling the music.

*Looks like Vegas is getting in on the rock festival idea. The inaugural 48 Hour Festival will take place at the Luxor Festival Grounds on Saturday, October 15th, and Sunday, October 16th. Headliners will be Avenged Sevenfold, Korn and Godsmack with support from Five Finger Death Punch, Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine, Hollywood Undead, Sick Puppies, Escape the Fate, Sevendust, Adelitas Way, Rev Theory, 10 Years, Art of Dying and many more!

*Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, founding members of KISS, will team up with rock journalist Ken Sharp on "Nothin' To Lose" which will be an oral history of KISS' early years. What makes this story interesting is the fact that two different KISS memoirs are due out soon. Guitarist Ace Frehley's "No Regrets" drops on November first and, drummer, Peter Criss has a book planned for 2012. Will Simmons and Stanley's book be a counter to theirs? I suppose we'll find out.

*Are you like me and still a young kid at heart? When you see certain figurines... or dolls as some say... of your favorite rock god do you buy them? Maybe you've got a few of the Todd McFarlane collection. Well now you can own the Beastie Boys! Little dolls were made for their most recent video of "Don't Play No Game that I Can't Win" and will only set ya back... $750! Hey, that's ONLY $250 a piece.

*Queen fans mark September 5th on your day planner as their two-night stint at Wembly Stadium, back in 1986, is coming to DVD. Not only will you be entertained by some of Queen's biggest hits, you'll also enjoy behind-the-scenes features which include new interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor.

*Believe it or not U2's Actung Baby is twenty years old and the Irish rockers will be re-issuing it on November first. There's to be five different remastered re-releases including packages that include vinyl, CD's and DVD's.

*This week the board game Monopoly busted out two new versions of their old game with Metallica Monopoly and AC/DC Monopoly.

*Dream Theater announced their fall tour this week. Beginning in September on the 24th in San Francisco and ending in Austin on the 26th of October. As of now, no stops planned for KC and it seems the closest would be in Pittsburgh, PA.

*And finally, how would you like to own John Bonham's old classic car from the 1976 concert film "The Song Remains The Same"? Seems the current owner, Bruce Screen, is hoping the car will be picked up by a museum where it can be appreciated. Screen purchased the car in 2000 and hasn't taken it out much because he was "too frightened to drive it on the roads".

What's going on with Disturbed?

The following article is copied from Blabbermouth as reported by The Pulse of Radio.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, DISTURBED frontman David Draiman is speaking out on the speculation regarding the band's future, which he himself started two weeks ago when he hinted that the group's current tour could be its last for a while — if not for good. Draiman confirmed to The Pulse Of Radio that DISTURBED plans to take an indefinite hiatus, and gave some hints about the "personal reasons" behind the decision. "Many of those reasons are have to do with the state of the music industry in general and, you know, the demise of hard rock and heavy metal right now, and I think it's just a good time for DISTURBED, after 10 to 12 years straight of touring, to go away for a little while and kind of wait for the phoenix to rise from the ashes here," he said. "It's frightening times right now, and it's just a good time for us to go away."

But Draiman also admitted that DISTURBED may in fact never come back. "It could be a concern," he said. "You don't know. We don't know. I can't definitively tell you one way or the other at this point. We really haven't gotten that far in our discussions. We all agree that we are going to step away for an indefinite period of time."

Draiman told Billboard that one thing the hiatus is not about is any personal strife between the four band members, saying, "This is really not due to any animosity — I want to make that very clear. In fact, we just had dinner together last night. Believe me, it's not like we can't work with each other anymore or we don't get along."

The singer said that all four members of the group have other creative endeavors they'd like to pursue, with both he and guitarist Dan Donegan interested in producing other acts.

Draiman added that he doesn't think a solo album is in his future. But he also told Billboard, "Depending on how far those individual interests end up taking us, and depending on how much we end up missing (the band) over the course of time — which, of course, at some point I'm sure we will — that will determine if and when we return."

In the meantime, the band is still touring the country on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which passes through Virginia Beach on Tuesday (August 2). Some sort of live release and a B-sides collection may also be in the works.

Draiman said that the band, which has toured for 12 years and issued five albums, is playing "stronger...and with more passion" on the current trek, adding, "We're all viewing this as our last hurrah for awhile, and we're making them count."

Reasons why Dave Grohl is awesome.

With the Foo Fighters coming into KC in September I felt it only appropriate to launch a blog of all the reasons Dave Grohl is awesome. I'll start it off but, please, feel free to add your comments.

#1. He's Dave "Mother Fuckin" Grohl.
#2. He plays a wicked guitar.
#3. He plays a wicked set of drums.
#4. He's not afraid to throw punk-ass-mother-fuckers out of his show. (Note Video below)




Like I said, feel free to add to this list.

Trent Reznor & Karen O do Immigrant Song

Loutallica!!

Just confirmed recently is the fact that punk icon Lou Reed has indeed teamed up with Metallica and recorded an album. Reed recently told Rolling Stone magazine that the teaming up was "A marriage made in heaven."

What's your take?
Will this kill or will this suck?

Looks like the Red Hot Chili Peppers have slated August 30th as THE day for their much anticipated album, I'm With You. This will be the first studio work since 2006's double-disc Stadium Arcadium which went number one in twenty-eight countries. It'll also be the first album to showcase new guitarist Josh Klingoffer. Once again, or for the sixth album in a row, legendary producer Rick Rubin is behind the scenes. I'm With You was recorded at East West in Los Angeles and Shangri-la in Malibu. As of now the Peppers are only playing Japan's Summer Sonic Festival in Osaka on August 13th, Tokoyo on August 14th and headlining Rock in Rio Festival in Brazil on September 24th.

Congrats to Jane's Addiction!

Yesterday, June 1st, Jane's Addiction was inducted into the Guitar Center RockWalk by Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello saying, "They're a band that could have happened nowhere else and a band that sounds like the city in which they were formed. You can hear the violence, the drugs, the beauty, the ocean, the hope, smog, fear and redemptive power of our city in JANE'S music." The city he's describing is, obviously, Los Angeles.

And according to their website Guitar Center's RockWalk is "Dedicated to honoring those individuals and groups who have made significant contributions to the music industry." Perhaps something one should take in upon a trip to LA. (http://www.rockwalk.com/RWstory/RWstorymore.cfm)
