Family: I have two dogs, an old Coonhound named Wunjo, and an American Dingo named Ivan....my Dingo will steal your baby. (really, he will.) I also have two cats, Maizey-AKA-"The Maize" and Stryper. Get used to the names, I talk about them ALOT.

And one lowlight:
They're won't be any Guns n' Roses reunion at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction this weekend because Axl Rose isn't showing up. Rose penned a lengthy open letter to the Rock Hall, sent it to the Los Angeles Times and posted it on Facebook. It's addressed "To the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Guns n' Roses Fans and Whom It May Concern," and in it Rose even says, "I respectfully decline my induction as a member."
Other highlights of the letter:
Duff McKagan was holding out hope that the original Guns n' Roses lineup would play something Saturday at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Cleveland until Axl Rose announced he wasn't attending. He wrote in his weekly ESPN.com column, "I, too, now hope that we can just play a couple of songs there, and just sort of throw the microphone down on the stage and walk off. The rock-and-roll world would be set ablaze once again...and we could make a bunch of fans happy and sated to some degree... But alas, I am only responsible for me, and can only speak for me... Part of me growing has been to realize I am powerless over others." --Steve Reynolds
Rush have set June 12th as the release date for their next album, Clockwork Angels. Featuring 12 songs, it will be their 20th studio effort and first since 2007's Snakes and Arrows. The album has a running theme of "a young man's quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams." Science fiction author Kevin J. Anderson is writing novel based on the album in collaboration with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.
The first single from Clockwork Angels, "Headlong Flight," will hit the airwaves on April 19th. Rush will announce a North American tour in support of the album shortly.
Rush received the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award last night at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles. --Sal Cirrincione
