    It's Stanley Harvey Eisen's Birthday!

    WHO?! You DO know this guy! Ok, you may know him by his "stage name"..... PAUL STANLEY! See, Paul Stanley sounds better than Stanley Harvey Eisen. Paul is 63 today! For a 63 year old dude, he's held up well! Even though KISS has been through a roller coaster of good and bad, and getting blasted for losing founding members, KISS has still remained one of America's favorite rock bands, and continue to sell out shows everywhere! In the mix of "bad" times, KISS has produced some of the weirdest damn music EVER. The mainstream stuff we all know and love is great, but there is a super-weird side in KISS-land. Below is a collection of some of the weirdest stuff they've done. And don't get me started on the goofy ass movies they made years ago. Whoa.

    Metallica IN THE STUDIO! AND, they have the picture to prove it!

    It's been way too long since we've had new music from Metallica. The last album was "Death Magnetic" in 2008! It's not like they've just been sitting around doing nothing. Of course they've been on tours in the U.S., and all over the world, playing at sporting events, being the "house band" on late-night TV, and of course, their bad-ass movie, "Through The Never"! So now, it's time to get busy giving the fans some NEW stuff! Now don't get too pumped up thinking this is coming next month or anything. They are just in the beginning stages of being in the studio, layin down tracks, listening, tweaking the sound, etc. BUT, the fact that they are IN the studio means we WILL be getting new Metallica sometime in the very near future. The Metallica Instagram pic below shows Robert Trujillo sitting behind the studio mixer recording some bass tracks. I can't wait!

    The Black Crowes announce official break up!

    Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, has just announced that the band has officially broken up. Why? Rich says it was because of quote, "an untenable ultimatum set down by Chris Robinson". Whatever the hell that means. We all know Chris is, well, a D**K. I actually witnessed this first hand, as I once took winners to meet the band after a show, and after 2 hours of NO BAND, we left the building bummed out. As we were headed to our cars, we walked by the tour bus just as Chris Robinson was stepping on to the bus. We all shouted "HEY CHRIS!", and he stopped, looked at us, and we thought we might actually get to finally meet him! Well, as he looked at us, he stared, then flipped us off, then went on the bus. What a prick. So am I sad they broke up? Nah. But I still like the music. And honestly, most people assume they broke up a long time ago! So this isn't that big of a news flash.

    Fans recreate St. Anger!

    Ok ok.... We all pretty much say the same thing when Metallica's album, St. Anger, gets mentioned. "OH GOD, EEEW"! (or something along those lines, maybe with some more expletives) Personally, I mildly enjoyed it. Mildly. The title track, St. Anger, was my favorite. BUT, like I said, on the whole, that album tanked for Metallica. This led to a whole lot of tension within the band, Newstead quit, and rehab followed. There are some huge Metallica fans that decided to re-record the entire album. They wanted to do it their way, while keeping all vocals and riffs intact. They released it on Youtube, and say they have no plans on doing an actual release. It is actually really damn good! The video below is their version of the whole album. Wouldn't it be weird if they DID release it, and it did better than Metallica's version? HA! And by the way, the song St. Anger happens at 5:25 in the vid.

    AC/DC set to rock this year's GRAMMY'S!

    It was just announced that AC/DC will be one of this years preformers at the 57th annual Grammy Awards. AC/DC is NOT nominated for an award this year. WHY? Their new CD "Rock Or Bust" came out too late to be considered for this year's awards. It will be eligible for next years awards. This will be the kick-off, so to speak, to their 2015, as a world tour is planned to support "Rock Or Bust". Click HERE to check out the full story, and to watch a video of the guys talking about continuing without Malcom Young.

    VIDEO: A "Masters Of The Universe" movie is in the works!

    Although we complain that Hollywood never has any "new ideas", and always re-hashes old movies, this one is pretty damn cool. He-Man and Masters Of The Universe will be coming to theaters, and I can't wait! This was a great cartoon of my youth, and I thought it was AWESOME! Not to mention that She-ra the PRINCESS OF POWER was H O T!!! HA! So what's the status? The screenplay was just finished, so it's reeeeeeally to early to say what's happening.

    For me, Christmas is my favorite time of year. Family, good food, and good presents! As a child, I remember my favorite present which was..... The GREEN MACHINE! Remember this? It was a 3 wheel bike thing, with the steering in the back, and a huge wheel up front! IT WAS AWESOME! When M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold was asked about HIS favorite gift, I got the same thing as a kid, and LOVED IT! Check it out HERE!

    UGLY Christmas Sweater time!

    I kinda can't stand this. Office parties that incorporate the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" contest. First, well, THEY'RE UGLY! Why would I even own one of these things?! Second, I'm not gonna go spend money on something I might wear once a year, simply to get a laugh, or a boobie prize. Unless of course it's REAL boobies, then I'm IN! I actually just found some "Ugly Christmas Sweaters" I would actually buy! SLIPKNOT n SLAYER have their very own! Click HERE to check em out!

    WOW! The Simpsons are 25 years old! They are the longest primetime animated series EVER! I remember when they first appeared on the scene, as a "short" on the Tracy Ullman show, back in 1987. When I first saw it, I thought it was the weirdest thing I had ever seen! After some time, it grew on me, and apparently the world, as it eventually became it's own show, and then a icon of American television. DOH!, Aye Caramba, HA-HA...... these are still in our everyday language! Check out this story from CNN HERE, and enjoy these other video's!
