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.
Metallica have gained control of their entire back catalog. The band announced on Friday that the rights to their masters had reverted back to them as part of the deal they signed with Elektra Records back in 1994.
The band has launched a new label, Blackened Recordings, to handle reissues of their back catalog and all future releases. First up for Blackened is a DVD called Quebec Magnetic, which has highlights from the band's two-night stint in the Canadian city in 2009, and that's due out next week.
Also Metallica have teamed up with the Virginia Tech bookstore to produce an "Enter Sandman" shirt that honors a fan that disappeared after their show in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2009. The band's proceeds from the shirt will go to Morgan Dana Harrington Scholarship Fund.
The shirts went on sale in October and have generated $17,000 so far. They'll be available through the rest of the school year and may be produced again in 2013.
Harrington's remains were found in January 2010 at a farm in Albemarle County, Virginia. Police are still searching for Harrington's killer.
