FOR SALE! ROCKFEST VIP!

Now that I have your attention I must warn you that if you do see this it is not real.
Not been too bad so far this year but in the past I have had to explain to many people that the $100 that they spent on VIP to Rockfest was money down the drain.
If you have the opportunity to buy them THEY ARE FAKE!
DON’T DO IT! YOU ARE GETTING RIPPED OFF!


Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest!
See ya out there Saturday!

Well crap!!!! Reported at Blabbermouth.net.....


It's Official: Guitarist JIM ROOT Has Been Fired From STONE SOUR

It's Official: Guitarist JIM ROOT Has Been Fired From STONE SOUR

Guitarist Jim Root has been fired from STONE SOUR, the group fronted by Root's SLIPKNOT bandmate Corey Taylor.

STONE SOUR has released the following statement regarding the matter: "As some of you might have heard by now, STONE SOUR and Jim Root have indeed parted ways. We were trying to wait until the completion of the new SLIPKNOT album, but in light of recent events, we are going to confirm this information and move on. We feel it's best for both bands and hope that is reflected in the days to come. We will give you more information when the time comes."

Taylor added in a separate tweet: "Jim and I are still working together in SLIPKNOT and the album is almost done."

Root reportedly chose to sit out STONE SOUR's recent North American tour so that he could concentrate on writing music for the next SLIPKNOT album. The Pulse Of Radio spoke with Root and asked him to explain his decision in a little more depth. "You know, unfortunately I'm only one person," he said earlier this year. "I can't really be in two places at one time and the amount of focus that I need to put into SLIPKNOT makes it really difficult for me to be on tour with STONE SOUR. It's crushing and it's heartbreaking and I really don't like the idea of not being out there, but I don't really see any other way to really do it without... I mean, this is, like, the best way that we could come up with for a compromise."

Earlier today, a fan who caught wind of the fact that Root will also be sitting out STONE SOUR's three U.S. summer shows scheduled for July 18-20 asked Jim on the guitarist's Instagram account (where Root posts under the name stuperbee) if Jim was still taking time off from the group. "I'm not in that band anymore," Root replied. "Not my decision. Not happy about it."

Root was replaced for the month-long STONE SOUR tour with POP EVIL and STOLEN BABIES — which began on January 14 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida and wrapped on February 15 in San Antonio, Texas — by Christian Martucci (THE CHELSEA SMILESTHOUSAND WATT STARE).

In a December 2013 interview with the Minneapolis radio station 93XTaylor stated about Root's absence from the most recent STONE SOUR tour: "We wanted to go back out with STONE SOUR and do one more tour — just kind of wrap things up, because we were pretty smoked by the time we got done with the European run, especially with doing both bands, that we all just kind of needed some time off. But we wanted to go out and kind of do one more cool, quick run through the States, especially, and play some stuff off 'House Of Gold And Bones Part 2' that we never got a chance to, and just kind of make it fun for the fans. So we talked to Jim — Jim was in SLIPKNOT mode — so we talked to him about bringing a friend of ours, Christian Martucci, out to play, and he was fine with it, everybody was cool with it. So this is just kind of a way for us to kind of wrap everything up before I have to jump off the ship and start working on SLIPKNOT stuff as well."

Taylor and Root spent much of the last four years recording and touring behind three full STONE SOUR studio records, 2010's "Audio Secrecy" and the double concept album "House Of Gold & Bones", which was released in two parts in 2012 and 2013.

Busy Time Of Year!

Holy hell I have been busy!
Sorry it has been a bit since I have been on here but this spring has been kicking my ass.
Between doing house stuff, Sevendust, NASCAR, and getting ready for Rockfest the time has kind of slipped away on me.
Hope you have been having as much fun as I have and I hope you are ready for Rockfest!
We are down to 18 days!
If you don’t have your tickets yet keep trying to win them or just get them before it is too late!
Remember if you wait till the day of the price jump up more!
Hope to see you there!
And I will be back sooner than later!

Pssst.. Hey kid, want some new music?!?

Gather 'round the ole campfire, children, and let the Reverend Nivens tell ya a story about some of the new music that came out today, May 6th. And yes, last year I became a Reverend... let's begin!

True, talented, musicians, who for some reason don't get the love they deserve in the States, BLACK STONE CHERRY have dropped a new jam today with "Magic Mountain". I just saw they recently landed on the cover of CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE outta the UK. While I'm not sure they're classic rock I do know they rock and that's a big mag to get props in! 

CRADLE OF FILTH put out a demo reissue with "Total Fucking Darkness". Keeping with the metal side of things, NAPALM DEATH put out a vinyl pressing of their 2000 album "Leaders Not Followers". 

Amazon is pimping out a new roots album for AC/DC. I've scoured the internet and have yet to find much about it but according to them it's "The roots of AC/DC contains rare recordings from the 60's and 70's of Brian Johnson, Bon Scott plus interviews with Angus and Malcom Young." 

AND mother-fucking DOWN is streaming their "IV - Part 2" EP a week early! 
Click this link here! 

Here's what's coming down the pike, what am I missing???
