New Music Tuesday!!

Hot of the heels of Memorial Day and here's what I gots for ya!!
  • As many of you know, Rockfest headliner, ALICE IN CHAINS rolls out their new album today, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here". Do I like it? Some of it. Is it better than "Black Gives Way To Blue"? I don't think so. Perhaps after a few more listens my feelings will change but this is where I'm at with it. 
  • NINE INCH NAILS mastermind, TRENT REZNOR, saying today that he's not been totally honest with what's happening with him lately. Seems a full NIN album is in the works, completed, and ready to be rolled out. Both title and date are TBA.
  • Metal Gods JUDAS PRIEST release "Epitaph" today on both Blu-Ray & DVD. This disc is a "unique live retrospective". PRIEST are still planning on releasing a new album. 
  • Speaking of Metal Gods DIO's "Finding the Sacred Heart: Live in Philly 1986" is out today via Eagle Vision. 
Below is what's coming down the pipe. See anything I'm missing???

What?

So sometimes I look at things in the US and think it is such a wast of time that these sort of things need to be even looked at.
Then something like this comes up.
What the hell man?

The governor of Jakarta, Indonesia, Joko Widodo, recently had to turn over his autographed METALLICA bass guitar to the government temporarily, while authorities determined whether the instrument was merely a gift or a violation of ethics rules. Widodo received the bass from METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, but had to give it up to the state within 30 days, according to laws regarding gifts to state officials.

According to Jakarta Globe, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has made the determination that the guitar is state property because it exceeded the Rp 300,000 limit for gifts and there was a mysterious note on the guitar, separate from Trujillo's message that said: "To Jokowi, keep playing that cool, funky bass." Jokowi is the governor's nickname. 

"Because there is [a note on the guitar that reads] 'Giving Back,' which has different handwriting than Trujillo's [note]. There is someone else who added it. In Indonesian, the words could have a meaning of asking for something in return," Giri said.

Giri said that the KPK was deciding between two options of what to do with the bass. One proposal is to move it to a museum, while the other option is auctioning the bass through the Ministry of Finance.

"Jokowi can have it again but with a higher price [if he buys it at the auction]," he said.

Jokowi estimated that the guitar is worth around Rp 8 million (approximately $816). If the guitar is auctioned, people might bid billions of rupiah for the instrument.
