You wouldn’t necessarily know it from listening to songs like ‘The Insidious Soliloquy of Skulhed Face’ or ‘The Master Has a Butt,’ but the members of GWAR are apparently huge film buffs. Well, okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch — but that didn’t keep lead singer Oderus Urungus and rhythm guitarist Balsac the Jaws of Death from reviewing Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ recently.
You really never know what you’re going to get from Axl Rose in an interview, and it seems pretty clear that he isn’t exactly eager to discuss the possibility of reuniting the original Guns N’ Roses lineup for a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next year.
Don’t let the name of Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor‘s latest tour fool you — it might sound like an intimate gathering of well-mannered friends, but ‘An Evening with Corey Taylor’ is turning out to be one of the most rock ‘n’ roll road trips of the year.
Saying he was trying to work out emotions he’d been unable to express at Dunn’s memorial service, Knoxville wrote an impassioned letter to his departed friend, saying Dunn “had a pure, open heart,” and made him “feel 34 percent funnier” when he was around.
In fact, it looks like the upcoming deluxe reissue — consisting of four CDs and a DVD — will include everything but a scrap of flannel from Kurt Cobain’s wardrobe. Though the set’s final track listing is as yet unknown — and, given the fact that there’s already an entire box of Nirvana rarities on the market, it seems likely that those extra discs will include some previously released material — at least one report indicates that the DVD will boast a concert making its first appearance from the vaults.
He’s been one of the most sought-after producers in rock for 25 years — and now that he’s also co-chairman of Columbia Records, Rick Rubin is also one of the busiest, with his hands in a dizzying list of current and upcoming projects.
Rubin discussed a number of those albums during a recent Billboard interview, conducted to celebrate the huge success of Columbia artist Adele’s new album, ’21′(which, yes, Rubin co-produced). Up next on the schedule is the latest Red Hot Chili Peppers release, which he describes as a “Red Hot Chili Peppers that you’ve never heard before.”
They don’t have a release date, a title, or even a record company waiting to get it onto the shelves, but Soundgarden is in the studio working on its first new album in 15 years – and during a pair of recent interviews, frontman Chris Cornell and guitarist Kim Thayil hinted at what fans can expect to hear.
“We’re kind of doing it in stages,” says Thayil, adding, “We have about 14 songs in various stages of completion. Previously, we’d just block out a bunch of time and go and track everything at once, but we can’t really do that right now.”
