North America will be in a short supply of love metal over the next few weeks. That's because Finnish rockers HIM have bowed out of their North American trek due to illness, as frontman Ville Valo has been ordered to rest.
The news of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman's death weighed heavy on the minds of many of the rockers attending Thursday night's Revolver Golden Gods ceremony, with many of the musicians just learning the tragic news as they were arriving for the show that night. Loudwire spoke with a number of the top rockers on the Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet about Hanneman's life, legacy and what Slayer, in general, has meant to the metal community.
The fans ultimately had the final say and in the end it's fitting that the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Awards spread the wealth when it came to the night's top categories. Deftones, Corey Taylor and Slipknot were among the evening's top honorees.
You may have heard that one of the members of the 90's rap duo, Kriss Kross, has passed away. Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly passed away yesterday and the Deftones felt they would pay tribute to the fallen artist by playing a rock cover of the Kriss Kross hit "Jump."
Even though he passed just last week, the family of Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has been very aware of the love generated by the musician around the world. As such they are staging a gathering this weekend where fans, friends and peers are invited to come celebrate his life.
The rock world was saddened over the weekend to hear the news that Deftones bassist Chi Cheng had passed away. The musician died after spending four years in either a coma or semi-conscious state as the result of a devastating 2008 car accident. After reactions and condolences from many in the rock community, the first official statement from Deftones themselves came today via a message from the band's guitarist Stephen Carpenter.
The nominees and official show date for the 2013 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards have been revealed. Not to be confused with the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, the Metal Hammer event will be held on June 17 at England's esteemed Indigo2 venue, with the legendary Motorhead set to headline the gig.
Memphis has a great musical tradition and rock music will definitely be on display as part of the Beale Street Music Festival. Alice in Chains, the Black Keys and Smashing Pumpkins have been selected as the headliners for the three-day music weekend.
