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.

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.

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.

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. There isn't even a director set yet. So stay tuned for the latest! Click HERE for the story, and enjoy a great episode of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!
