And the winners are....

So the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame inductees were announced today and many were shocked (myself included) to see GREEN DAY on that list. Are they RNRHOF worthy? Some would argue Yes, while others, clearly from internet postings, say NO! For me, I suppose, the hardest thing to understand is why they would be in their first year nominated. That's probably the most baffling.

Here's the list of others going in next year in Cleveland:

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN & DOUBLE TROUBLE
JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS
PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND
LOU REED
BILL WITHERS
RINGO STARR
THE "5" ROYALS - an early 50's/60's R&B band inducted as an Early Influence Award Winner

Now here's some who ARE NOT in the Rock Hall of Fame and based upon what's floating around the internet, many feel need consideration. What do you think?

JUDAS PRIEST
MOTORHEAD
IRON MAIDEN
MOTLEY CRUE
WARREN ZEVON
YES
BON JOVI
DIO
MOODY BLUES
CHICAGO
DEAD KENNEDY'S
THE MELVINS
PHISH
JOURNEY
BLACK FLAG
SLAYER
PIXIES
NICK CAVE

BILLY CORGAN Blasts PEARL JAM, FOO FIGHTERS

That's a pretty high pedestal he's putting himself on coming on the heels of an album that is just BARELY over 30 mins....total - Westward


According to The Pulse Of Radio, SMASHING PUMPKINS frontman Billy Corgan blasted PEARL JAM and FOO FIGHTERS in a new interview with Howard Stern, saying that neither band matched the early '90s accomplishments of either the PUMPKINS or NIRVANA. About PEARL JAM, Corgan said, "I don't think they have the songs. I think you stack my songs up, [Kurt] Cobain's songs up and that band's songs up, they don't have the songs. They're a great band. Look, they're still an arena act. They've been getting it done for a long time and I have to bow to that."

Corgan said he was friendly with PEARL JAM singer Eddie Vedder at one point, but they haven't been social in years, explaining, "I haven't been in a social frame with the guy in I don't know how long but I think a lot of people are transformed by fame… You can't blame him. He was on the cover of Time magazine, not me, and dealt with a level of fame that I never dealt with, so I can't say what that feels like."

Corgan also had some choice words for FOO FIGHTERS, saying, "Dave [Grohl] is a great musician, a great songwriter and has done the work. To me, my criticism of the FOO FIGHTERS, if I'm being a music critic is that they just haven't evolved and that's sort of the recent rap on them is, you know, making the same music… Listen, he's getting it done so it's like, if you want to be competitive, my philosophy against his, he's winning."

The PUMPKINS founder recently said that he and Kurt Cobain were the top two songwriters of their generation, and that everyone else was a "distant third."

A new SMASHING PUMPKINS album, "Monuments To An Elegy", arrived on Tuesday (December 9).

Slayer and a Kitten?

Guess we can put ths story in the "Awwwwwww" file.
Check it out.
M

SLAYER's publicist Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald released the following statement to Nuvo.net: "[The night of December 3, SLAYER guitarist] Kerry [King] and some of the crew went to dinner at Kerry's favorite steak house in Indy, St. Elmo's Steak House. Afterwards, the assistant tour manager, Jess [Cortese] saw a homeless man on the street who offered up this little kitten for a dollar. The kitten apparently was freezing so Jess took it, slept with her in her bunk on the bus and went to the venue with her today, hanging out. One of the runners knew someone who wanted a kitten, so the little guy now has a new home where he or she currently is."

The cat's new owner later posted a photo of the cat on the Old National Centre Facebook page, saying, "Here she is! I named her Gypsy! I gave her a bath last night then she slept for 5 hours on the heating pad. She's at the vet this morning being treated for fleas and worms. Thank you SLAYER for your act of kindness and thank you."

SLAYER is currently touring North America with support from SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and EXODUS.

BEER!

Not sure if ouy have had a chance to try this yet.
I found it a while back and it is actually really good!

Keep a eye out for it!

According to Manchester Evening News, British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will start selling their Trooper beer in a 500ml "Tall Boy" can in the U.S. next month.

MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson, who designed and developed the ale with Martyn Weeks, the chief brewer at Robinsons, said cans have advantages over bottles.

"Firstly, cans are easier to recycle, require less packaging, get colder quicker and take up less space in your fridge," he said.

"Secondly, cans don't break or smash, meaning they can be taken to venues, sporting events, campgrounds, beaches, and music festivals, where glass is not typically allowed.

"Thirdly, aluminium cans are excellent protection against light and oxygen - beer's biggest enemies, so your drink tastes fresher longer.

"Done right, they're great for our beer."

300,000 Trooper cans will be made available in the U.S. beer market from January 2015.

The Trooper beer was launched in May 2013 and has sold more 5 million pints, with almost half of it brewed for the export market (Trooper is currently distributed in 40 countries).

Dickinson said: "When asked if we wanted to enter into a partnership with the respected Robinsons Brewery to design and brew a real ale for ourselves and our fans, we leapt at the chance.

"What has been particularly encouraging, over and above the international sales success and even over the tremendous reaction from our fans, is how it has been so warmly welcomed by serious beer aficionados outside the IRON MAIDEN community.

"As a dedicated ale drinker myself, I was very aware of the many great beers available and the extremely high level of competition we faced."
