Legendary Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne will be honored at the 10th anniversary MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert on May 12. At the special event, Osbourne will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for the Sabbath singer's commitment to helping individuals who have struggled with addiction.
Motley Crue's 'The Dirt' will be heading to the big screen soon, and there have been films chronicling the lives of rock bands over the years, but former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash says he's not interested in ever seeing a biopic of the early years of GN'R ever gracing the silver screen.
Slash may be most well-known for his insane guitar work and his time with Guns N’ Roses but the axe-man recently tried his hand at another trade, producing the horror movie ‘Nothing Left to Fear.’ Now out on Video On Demand, DVD and Blu-Ray, ‘Nothing Left to Fear’ tells the story of a pastor and his family taking over a church in Kansas with things taking a turn to the dark side.
Iconic festival South by Southwest (SXSW) is sure to bring in a ton of people to Austin, Texas, for 10 days of music, music and more music, plus some film for good measure. However, Slash has just announced that he'll be bringing a new component to SXSW this year, throwing the first-ever 'Slashathon,' which will challenge software developers to "create solutions for artists to engage their communities for an album release."
This is getting to be a regular thing! Congrats to Myles Kennedy for winning the Best Vocalist of 2013 in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards. This marks his second consecutive win in the category. Last year he won primarily for his work with Slash, while 2013 found Kennedy transitioning back to fronting Alter Bridge.
Former Runaways members Lita Ford and Cherie Currie played together for the first time in more than 30 years this past October. Most recently (Jan. 9), the two reprised their performance of 'Cherry Bomb' at Ford's headlining show at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, Calif., and this time they were joined by Slash (watch above).
