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.
According to Ronan McGreevy of The Irish Times, an early version of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" and a recording of METALLICA performing with Marianne Faithfull are among the mountain of tapes from the old Windmill Lane recording studios in Ireland that are waiting to be reclaimed by the artists or recording companies that recorded them.
More than 1,000 tapes, weighing a ton, are filling up the attic in the new Windmill Lane studios in Ringsend.
If the two-inch multi-track tapes — which were used in the days before digital technology took over the studios in the middle of the last decade — are not reclaimed by May, they will be destroyed.
Singer Scott Weiland claims that STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' announcement of his "termination" from the band is nothing more than a publicity stunt in order to hype an upcoming concert tour.
Speaking to TMZ.com at the Los Angeles airport prior to the launch of his new solo tour, Weiland said: "STP is not broken up. It's a whole thing to try to boost ticket sales."
According to Scott, there the members of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS are forbidden from using the name STP on another group unless all the individual musicians are involved.
Asked if he's still fronting the band, he replied, "I started it."
It's not clear at this point whether STP plans to carry on with a new singer. As for Weiland, his solo tour with his band THE WILDABOUTS begins tonight in Flint, MI.
