Drummer Bill Ward’s withdrawal from Black Sabbath‘s reunion album and tour due to his displeasure with the contract situation continues to be a hot topic. Ward’s son Aron issued a lengthy Facebook post about the subsequent media frenzy over Ward’s self-imposed exile, hoping to set the record straight and prevent the press and fans from further pouncing upon his father.
Now, this is what we call beating the system. A South Florida-based billionaire has legally (and perhaps brilliantly, if it pays off) adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend and not because they are into some seriously creepy role playing that they’ve taken a bit too far outside of the bedroom.
‘Victoria’s Secret’ model Adriana Lima is a hot chick and Motley Crue is a ‘gets-all-the-hot-chicks’ type of hard rock band. What a match, right? These two bastions of dude culture collide in a 2012 Kia Optima commercial (thanks Loudwire) and our heads were about to blow upon watching it.
Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is currently recovering from surgery. But before you get all worried about the legendary axeman and his health, realize that he underwent a relatively minor and routine procedure — having laser eye surgery to correct his deteriorating vision. At 68 years of age, Richards, now also a best-selling author, had been dealing with his vision breaking down for quite some time now.
The Muppets are the latest celebrities — they are A-listers in the plush world, mind you – to appear in a Google TV ad. In their spot, Kermit & Co. hawk Google+ to the strains of ‘Under Pressure’ by Queen and David Bowie.
With the onslaught of rock bands marketing their own brands of libations, Billboard elected to examine several such beverages via a wine tasting panel at New York’s City Winery. They sipped, sampled and sounded off about 12 wines from the likes of AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Motorhead, Warrant, Ratt, Whitesnake and more.
With all the hoopla surrounding Van Halen‘s first album with David Lee Roth in over 20 years, our friends over at the Van Halen News Desk have dipped into the vaults and dragged out 15 photos of the young, hell-raising band making a visit to a record store — remember those?! — while on their first world tour in 1978.
Just a few weeks after releasing the approved images for the licensing of Hello Kitty-branded Kiss items, which marks a true cultural collision, a new batch of kute Kiss items have surfaced. Kiss Pandas are now available for purchase at Spencer’s and FYE retail locations. There are hardly any merchandise stones left unstocked by Kiss. But we have to admit, the Kiss Pandas are in fact adorable.
Not even the Metal God is immune to lawsuits. Judas Priest‘s leather clad vocalist Rob Halford is being sued by his longtime personal manager John Baxter. Baxter is suing Halford, other members of Priest and the band’s management team. It’s a legal clusterf— if there ever was one.
It must suck to be Axl Rose right now. The Guns N’ Roses singer, who granted VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ host Eddie Trunk an hour long interview on Sunday morning (Oct. 30) at the ass crack of dawn, is reportedly suffering from both bronchitis and Montezuma’s Revenge. Yikes!
