Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder paid a visit to the Ramones Museum in Berlin last week, accompanied by his guitar tech. He spent a few hours sharing stories, thoughts and memories about the late Johnny Ramone and other members. But perhaps most interesting is the touching, handwritten note Vedder left at the site.
This might sound a bit morbid, but Smashing Pumpkins‘ singer Billy Corgan, who just issued ‘Oceania,’ knows which song he would like to have played at his funeral. Turns out it’s one of the singer-guitarist’s own tunes. That’s not really surprising, given the depth and breadth of the Pumpkins’ expansive catalog of alt rock hits, which dominated the airwaves in the ’90s. So which one did he choose?
Guitar god Zakk Wylde is a proud papa again. Wylde and his lovely wife Barbaranne welcomed their fourth child, son Sabbath Page Wielandt Wylde, into the world last night (July 4). That’s quite the rock ‘n’ roll name, isn’t it?
There are some new updates, courtesy of the website Blesk.cz, regarding the ongoing saga of incarcerated Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe, who is currently in a jail in Prague in the Czech Republic facing possible manslaughter charges.
Rock ‘n’ roll and fashion are forever linked. Most self-respecting rockers sport t-shirts (or at least patches!) with their favorite band logos. Some even wear band tattoos, which are an accessory of the more permanent sort. Musicians often do the same. Now, Metallica frontman James Hetfield, who has always boasted an evolving yet infinitely cool look, which has settled into a rockabilly style at this point in his career, is taking it a step further, by partnering with Sutro Eyewear to craft a limited edition pair of shades.

It has musicians like Anthrax‘s Scott Ian and Testament‘s Alex Skolnick worrying about the implications of touring Europe.
The 10th annual tribute to the late, great Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, who passed away in April 2002 at the tender age of 34 after years of addiction struggles, is set for this August in the Seattle/Tacoma area. It’s a massive celebration, as five days of events and performances have been planned to remember the singer whose definitive voice marked the grunge era of rock ‘n’ roll.
Onetime Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins is hosting Nat Geo WILD’s three-part ‘Animal Underworld’ documentary series, which airs tonight (May 28) at 8 PM ET. The singer, public speaker and activist looks at the unusual connections between animals and people, which might terrify some. Rollins wrestled an alligator and drank snake blood for the series, so he certainly pushed his own limits.
Just when you thought the summer of 2012 couldn’t get any hotter in terms of metal tours that will blaze through venues during the scorching months, the temperature just skyrocketed several notches. News that Lamb of God and Dethklok from Adult Swim’s ‘Metalocalypse are co-headlining a North American tour has leaked via multiple sources.
Pam Shaw, a 70-year-old cabaret singer known as “The Sexational Pam”, is a virgin who has sacrificed sex for work and for her beliefs.
