Angel’s Rock Report–Corey Taylor, Jacoby [AUDIO]
Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour and Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro are among the rockers who’ll join host Henry Rollins at a benefit concert for the charity Drop in the Bucket at the Avalon in L.A. on November 30th. Drop in the Bucket raises money to build water wells and sanitation systems at large rural schools in sub-Saharan Africa. Anthrax leader Scott Ian, John 5, Slayer‘s Dave Lombardo and members of Rob Zombie‘s band will also perform.
Taylor says the event is important to him because “millions of people live without water on a daily basis when we as Americans treat it like used tissue paper. Its only common sense to think that if I can do something to not only help, but also raise awareness, then that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
As an alternative to the Butterball’s Turkey Talk-Line, Rob Zombie has recorded a phone message for PETA that outlines the way turkeys are plumped up, tortured and slaughtered. The point of his message is to urge people not to eat birds treated this way. He ends by supplying a source for vegan Thanksgiving recipes.
Sorry Rob, love ya, but turkey WILL go in this face next Thursday (and likely for a solid 5 days after).
Zombie has just completed work on his Lords of Salem in Massachusetts and will finish shooting the film it in L.A.
Gorillaz have hooked up with Converse to launch their own line of Chuck Taylor All-Stars using images associated with the band next February. Gorillaz co-founder and graphic designer Jamie Hewlett has created a set of prints exclusively for the footwear. The Converse partnership will also include a “Three Artists, One Song” collaboration, in which Gorillaz will team with two other artists from different backgrounds to create a song that will be available free to fans.
Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland debuted the video for “Winter Wonderland” from his seasonal album The Most Wonderful Time of the Year yesterday. You can find it at Music.Yahoo.com/Video/Premieres.
I’m totally getting YOU that for Xmas.
