Guns N’ Reunion

Duff McKagan might be kicking himself. In a recent interview at the Download Festival, former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver bassists, now Loaded frontman, said this:

"It would be, it will be, really fun to go to South America and the U.K. with Loaded and Izzy [Stradlin] to do a tour together…he and I talked about it and it’d be great.”

McKagan’s comments sparked another internet craze over a possible GNR reunion; a department in which McKagan’s been making waves having played with each member of the original line-up over the last year, including a concert with the current Guns N’ Roses line-up in October 2010. Maybe, just maybe, it will happen…

Tremonti Van Halen

Alter Bridge/Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti sat down with Mulatschag TV and talked about listening to the entire new Van Halen album after being invited to do so by the band’s bassist Wolfgang Van Halen. How about an Eddie Van Halen vs. Mark Tremonti guitar battle?

Zombie Cleaning Up

Metal legend and film director Rob Zombie has turned in a new direction. The shock rocker just directed a commercial for the laundry detergent, Woolite. Check out the commercial here.

Metallica’s New Album

Legendary musician Lou Reed and the metal gods of Metallica have written a new album together. The collaborators had locked themselves away in Metallica’s home studio in San Francisco, successfully keeping the project under wraps until now… Read Rolling Stone’s article for more on the newly-released information. 

A Brand New Announcement

New York rock band Brand New has announced five shows on the West Coast in September. The band has been quiet since the headlining tour for their highly successful album Daisy. The release of the album fulfilled the band’s contract requirements with Interscope Records, providing them the opportunity to freely navigate - sans label restrictions. In early 2010, drummer Brian Lane hinted at purely digital future releases or possible free music for fans. Either way, we’re jealous of all you on the West Coast!
