Slash tweeted some huge news about his plans for Thursday night, March 15. The guitarist revealed that he will be reuniting with his onetime Guns N’ Roses bandmate Steven Adler to “lay down some guitars” for a song on the drummer’s new album.
Look out Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Courtney Love is on the warpath. According to TMZ, the latest claim out of Love is that the Muppets “raped” the memory of her husband, the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, with the way the plush puppets handled his signature song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ in the 2011 film. Furthermore, Court claims that the powers-that-be- used the song without her permission.
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello performed several songs with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ last night (March 2) and it was quite the onstage collaboration. It was a collision of hard rock and classic rock and the result was nothing short of explosive. Out late on a Friday night or catching up on Zs after a long week and therefore missed the performance? Don’t fret. We’ve got footage below for you to enjoy.
Forget pumped up kicks. You need some metal ones. For a limited time only, you can grab a pair. Street apparel giant Vans is reissuing several band-branded sneakers, including the Slayer and Iron Maiden editions.
It might seem unfathomable that a high-profile hard rock vocalist moonlights as a burgeoning country singer, but then again, few aggressive music singers possess the breadth and scope of talent of Staind‘s Aaron Lewis. He just released his brand new solo song ‘Anywhere But Here,’ which features twangy guitars and his inimitable, soul stirring and richly emotional vocals.
Cold’s ‘American Dream’ video tells the story of just that: the sometimes unrealistic ideals and idyllic goals that so many average Americans strive for, yet never attain. Perhaps it’s the thrill of the chase, but Americans never give up on the dream. Also in this clip is the pervasive idea that nothing is ever quite like it seems, either.
Metallica‘s ‘Beyond Magnetic’ EP will see release in another format: silver vinyl. At first, the EP was digital only and then issued on CD. Now, to celebrate Record Store Day, the metal monoliths will release the EP on wax of the silver sort. Record Store Day is April 21, so look for it at your favorite mom and pop record retailer then, or via their website.
Zakk Wylde can add author to his long list of accomplishments. The guitarist’s heavy metal handbook ‘Bringing Metal to the Children’ will land at book retailers on April 10 via William Morrow, which is a HarperCollins imprint. Wylde penned the book with the help of Eric Hendrikx. Despite the title, it’s not a book four youngins by any means.
Wisconsin is going to be a mecca of hard rock from July 19 through July 22. The lineup for the 2012 Rock Fest, held near Cadott, Wis. has been announced and it’s heavier than granite.

The fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards are set to invade Los Angeles on April 11, with Marilyn Manson on deck to perform his first show in almost three years at the event. Other performers include Slash, Evanescence, Sixx: A.M. and Black Veil Brides. Further additions to the line up will be announced in the coming weeks.
Dave Grohl has fashioned a documentary about the famed Sound City Studios – Nirvana‘s ‘Nevermind’ and Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Rumors’ are part of the studio’s repertoire, to name few. A super short and not-very-informative but utterly evocative trailer has been released. It’s more of a teaser than anything.
The previously unreleased video for Stone Temple Pilots‘ song ‘Cinnamon’ has found its way online. There was an original version filmed in summer 2010, but the band wasn’t feeling the result so the video was scrapped and it was reshot in late 2010 with new director. The song was the third single off 2010′s self-titled affair.
