Slash has titled his second solo album Apocalyptic Love. It's due out May 22nd, and his collaborators, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, get their own billing on the album cover.

Slash and company will hit the road in support of the album on May 3rd in Baltimore.
It looks more and more like Disturbed fans are going to be waiting a long ass time for the band to return. Bassist John Moyer, who just joined the new band Adrenaline Mob, says he doesn't know how long their hiatus will be. He adds, "If and when Disturbed gets back together and wants to do something -- that's just not on my visual right now. That's so far out I'm not really thinking about that."
Moyer expected to be on the road with Adrenaline Mob most of this year.

Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde will publish his first book, Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Tour Domination, on April 10th. At Wednesday's Revolver Golden Gods Awards nominations Zakk said that he's "been proofreading over the thing the other day," and that it's "just about ready to go."
Zakk describes the book, which he wrote with Eric Hendrikx, as "ridiculous stories of the music business" he'd tell while "sitting at a bar, drinking or whatever."
