Corey's into MUSIC, playing Bass and Guitar (poorly), crappy Glam/Sleaze Metal, crappy old TV, collecting and restoring vintage arcade games, trips to Hollywood, dark import beers, Cleveland Browns and hanging out with his wife and young son.
Last week we told you that former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler was headed back to rehab, forcing the postponement of his new band’s touring plans. But now Adler’s released a statement saying he's confident he can win his struggle against addiction.
He says: "I picked up a bottle and drank. This occurred a few times – and that's a few times too many. I knew that this had to permanently stop. That is the moment I picked up the phone, before it got out of hand, to get help. I had kicked hard drugs several years ago and now it is time to get rid of the urges of drinking alcohol. I am at a great facility and will stay here until I am comfortable to be home to work the program on my own."
And somewhere Axl Rose is breathing a sigh of relief that he decided not to reunite with Adler and the rest of the original GNR.
As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested on Tuesday and stands accused of trying to hire someone to kill his estranged wife, according to the NBC affiliate in San Diego, Ca.
Lambesis was arrested after he allegedly asked an undercover detective to murder his estranged wife and was charged with solicitation of another to commit murder.
San Diego County Sheriff's Department told NBC that Lambesis was arrested at a business in Oceanside, Ca without incident.
Police reportedly began their investigation last Thursday after they were tipped off that the singer was purportedly attempting to solicit someone to murder his wife.
A spokesperson for the Sheriff's Department said "the information came to us late last week. We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy."
Led Zeppelin were asked to reunite for a Hurricane Sandy charity show by former US president Bill Clinton, but even he couldn't get them to agree.
The former "most powerful man in the world" met the band while at their Kennedy Center Honors celebration at the White House in December.
Clinton later asked them if they'd reunite to play in support of the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which caused more than $75bn of damage and claimed the lives of nearly 300 people in October 2012.
Aerosmith have canceled next Saturday's concerts in the Indonesian capital of in Jakarta "due to safety reasons" following an alleged bomb plot, according to Billboard.
The band were scheduled to perform at the JIExpo on May 11th as part of their Global Warming World Tour, but the promoter announced that they have canceled the nearly sold-out show.
The promoter's website ran announcement from Aerosmith's reps that read, "Unfortunately, we have to cancel our upcoming show in Jakarta. We want to apologize to all our fans who were expecting to see us and hope that one day we can make it up to them."
While the band's announcement didn't mention the safety concern in their statement, Billboard reports that that the security concerns may have come from an alleged bomb plot that was targeting the Myanmar Embassy.
Helmi Sugara, a spokesman for the event's organizer, said that the band canceled the show on Saturday. That followed Friday's announcement by Indonesia that they had arrested two suspected militants with bombs.
They report that it was not clear if the show cancelation was directly related to the terror plot or if it was a reaction to some other threat.
Slayer have confirmed that guitarist Jeff Hanneman died yesterday at the age of 49. He suffered liver failure while in a hospital near his California home.
He'd been struggling with health issues since a near-fatal spider bite in 2011, which had kept him sidelined ever since. The official statement says:
"Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11am this morning. He was in an area hospital.
"He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace."
Hanneman co-founded the band with fellow guitarist Kerry King in 1981 and alongside frontman Tom Araya and drummer Dave Lombardo they rose to become one of the Big 4 of thrash metal following their 1986 breakthrough album “Rein In Blood.”
Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has returned to rehab, forcing his band solo band Adler to postpone their summer touring plans until the fall.
Adler singer Jacob Bunton has released a statement saying: "We are truly sorry to all of the fans and promoters who were looking forward to seeing us on the road, but right now Steven's health is the most important thing. We hope to make it up to everyone when Steven recovers."
The drummer has been fighting addiction issues since the 1980s and booted from GNR in 1990 due to his inability to control his drinking and drug-taking.
In January he said the release of new album “Back From The Dead”, and the positive reviews for Adler's live shows, meant his drug problems were behind him.
