Today (March 21) marks Twitter's eighth birthday. Although the iconic social media platform was launched in July 2006, it was March 21, 2006 that Twitter was officially founded. We've all seen how Twitter has changed the world, but do you remember the site's humble beginnings? It's a bit of a blur, but thanks to Twitter's 'Discover' feature, we can see the very first tweets sent out by your favorite rock and metal musicians.
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.
