Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan will be premiering his new photo book ‘Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey’ at the South By Southwest Music Festival next week in Austin, Texas. ‘Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey’ is a collection of Crahan’s photography, and more specifically his experimental works exploring darkness and light.
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has said some interesting stuff lately, such as supporting Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum only to rebuke that support, opposing gay marriage, telling women in Africa to "put a plug in it" regarding birth control, but now he has said something even more interesting. In a recent radio interview with Minneapolis radio station 93X, Mustaine spoke about the proposed supergroup with Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich that he spoke about last year.
If there ever was a time when 140 character nature of tweets were a hindrance, it's now. Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe used his Twitter feed to speak his mind quite vociferously and at great length about SOPA, which is the Stop Online Piracy Act. He made a lot of valid points and we give him credit for not getting frustrated at Twitter character limits to keep going! Because like a mad 'n' metallic Energizer bunny, that's just what he did!
Lars Ulrich appeared on last night's episode of 'That Metal Show,' and hands down, he is this season's "big get," and quite possibly the "big get" of the entire series! Ulrich was engaging, interesting and incredibly chatty and revealed lots of tidbits about the music he loves, and of course, about his own band.
A day before the ‘Big 4’ slayed Yankee Stadium, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich went one-on-one with the ‘King of all Media’ Howard Stern on Sirius Radio. The in-depth interview started off right from the beginning transporting listeners back to Ulrich’s childhood to his first meeting with James Hetfield and the birth of Metallica, to the epic show that went down last night in the Bronx and everything in between.
Over the years, veteran rocker Tommy Stinson has put in time with a pair of hard-partying bands on opposite sides of the economic ladder: the beer soaked, eternally cash-strapped indie rockers the Replacements, and the booze bloated, multiplatinum hard-rock mavens Guns N’ Roses. Both acts are known for legendary stretches of abhorrent hedonism, but surely one of them pushed things a little further than the other. So, who parties harder: indie rockers or hard rockers?
