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.
