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.
A 51-year-old Pink Floyd fan has been sentenced to 28 days in jail for repeatedly playing the band's albums at high volume throughout the night.
Paul Foster was put behind bars for having ignored five injunctions against playing loud music in recent years. Neighbors reported that night after night they’d have to put up with Foster blaring The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall – followed by sessions of soul ballads.
One of Foster's neighbors said, "It's been a nightmare. I like Pink Floyd as much as the next man – but not when it's being played ten times a day until 4am. I think whenever I hear their songs again I'll be climbing the walls."
Let's all point and laugh at KISS!
They were telling any(every?)one who would listen that they've completely revamped their stage setup, and the centerpiece is a huge fire-shooting, audience attacking spider, on which they make their grand entrance...usually.
Note the look of discomfort on Gene Simmons' face as the spider stops lowering...with the band on its' back.
I love the riff to "Psycho Circus", but not sure I (or anyone else) would need to hear it 46 times while they plan their escape!
Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has revealed he's fighting cancer but says he's feeling "rather spiffy." He's two months into a six-month term of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a form of the disease which has a high clean-up rate.
And he says he wants fans to know in advance of Def Lep's upcoming tour dates so that they're ready for his lack of hair. Campbell reports: "I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of 'the cough that wouldn't quit'. Otherwise, how would I have known?
"After several months of trying every inhaler known to man, my doctor finally had me X-rayed. A CAT scan revealed that enlarged lymph nodes were doing wrestling maneuvers on my windpipe – hence the cough.
"What was causing the enlarged lymph nodes, however, was yet to be determined, so I underwent a surgical biopsy on March 11, the first day of Leppard rehearsals for our Las Vegas shows. Obviously, I didn't make it to rehearsal that day, but it's okay; I know the songs by now!"
After Hodgkin's Lymphoma was diagnosed, Campbell was lined up for half a year's worth of chemo, which began in April. He says: "I'm feeling rather spiffy, all things considered. Hodgkin's has an over 80% cure rate – so by my reckoning, if you're going to have a cancer, Hodgie's is the one to have!"
Black Sabbath have released the video premiere of "God Is Dead?", the first track issued from their brand new studio album, "13," a week ahead of schedule.
The band originally announced that the clip would debut next Monday. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Rick Rubin, "13" is the group's first full studio record with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978's "Never Say Die."
Well, it’s been a pretty busy 24 hours for Nine Inch Nails. Late last night, guitarist Adrian Belew announced has quit ahead of the release of their new album and tour, saying that "no one is at fault" but "it just was not working."
Trent Reznor recently credited the King Crimson front man with inspiring him to revisit the band he'd put on hiatus in 2009. But Belew has tendered his resignation the day after NIN's first new track, Came Back Haunted, was released – and just weeks after bassist Eric Avery jumped ship as well.
The guitarist comments: "Before this goes too far let me say this: I greatly respect Trent and the music he makes. No one is at fault. We both agreed it just was not working.
"I'm sorry to disappoint anyone – that really hurts. But NIN will do an amazing show. “
I don't knwo if I believe this or not, but Lars Ulrich claims that Metallica took a bath at last year's inaguaral Orion Music + More Festival...
METALLICA's Orion Music + More festival debuted last June in Atlantic City, New Jersey and is set to return this coming weekend on Detroit, Michigan's Belle Isle.
Even though the two Atlantic City shows sold a total of 24,000 tickets, according to The Press Of Atlantic City, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told BusinessWeek.com that the band has yet to make money from the venture.
"I wish we broke even last year," Ulrich said. "I'd obviously like to get into a situation where it's not costing us, but that will probably be another couple of years away. You've got to be in it for the long haul."
For years, there's been talk of a Keith Richards documentary directed by Johnny Depp, with the working title Happy, but that chatter’s died down in recent months, probably lost in the shuffle of the Rolling Stones activity around their current 50th anniversary tour.
Apparently it’s back on now, as Richards told Mojo magazine that work resumed on the film in April.
Johnny Depp is certainly the right man for this job too, he was the driving force behind the awesome Doors documentary “When You’re Strange” that was incredibly well-received, plus Depp based his Captain Jack Sparrow character from the Pirates Of The Caribbean films on Richards, and the guitarist actually played his father in two of the series’ installments. Depp reportedly filmed 35 hours of footage in 2011, most of which features he and Richards sitting around drinking and chatting. Surprise!
