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.
Slash has released a new webisode documenting the recording of his upcoming solo effort set to drop on May 22. In this revealing clip, which clocks in at just under three minutes, it is revealed that the guitar deity is diligent about practicing even though he is pretty much a universally revered player at this point in his long and impressive career. That fact should serve as a lesson for aspiring guitarists — you’re never too old or too good to practice.
It’s a celebratory time for the current and former members of Guns N’ Roses and not just because they are gearing up for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, which is set to take place in April, or because Slash has a new album coming out in May! Two key members are celebrating birthdays this week, which was acknowledged by Slash via Twitter.
It’s been a rough couple of days for Anthrax, as the rhythm section has had to leave their current tour temporarily. Drummer Charlie Benante’s mother is terminally ill, and she just so happens to be bassist Frank Bello’s grandmother, so her son and grandson have put business on the backburner to be by her side, rightfully so. But it was also a rough couple of years for the band before popular vocalist Joey Belladonna returned to the fold, with new album ‘Worship Music’ sitting on the shelf after initially being recorded with singer Dan Nelson. Despite all the things that have happened with the album, guitarist Scott Ian is very happy with the end result.
Evanescence performed on ‘Conan’ last night (Feb. 2), with ‘Made of Stone’ making it to the live broadcast, while ‘The Other Side’ was reserved for an exclusive, web-only clip. We have them both, so you can watch and enjoy in case you missed it!
In honor of Motley Crue‘s much anticipated residency in Las Vegas, the Mayor of Sin City, Carolyn Goodman, has declared today, Feb. 3, 2012, as “Motley Crue Day.” See what decades of rock ‘n’ roll debauchery and decadence will get you? Your very own day in the city of debauchery and decadence.
‘Victoria’s Secret’ model Adriana Lima is a hot chick and Motley Crue is a ‘gets-all-the-hot-chicks’ type of hard rock band. What a match, right? These two bastions of dude culture collide in a 2012 Kia Optima commercial (thanks Loudwire) and our heads were about to blow upon watching it.
If you missed shredder Zakk Wylde being ripped to pieces at his very own Guitar World-sponsored roast, which took place at NAMM in Anaheim, Calif. on Jan. 19, don’t be bummed. You can enjoy Revolver TV’s footage from the event’s star-studded and bullet-belted red carpet. Here, the roasters and the roastee expressed their apprehension regarding what was about to take place that night.
The always quotable and entertaining David Lee Roth opened up about several topics pertaining to Van Halen‘s new album ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ which drops on Feb. 7. It’s DLR’s first album with the band in two decades and he’s got a lot to say.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have Red Hot Chili Peppers play your house? Well, you can suspend disbelief for a moment and pretend like they are doing just that when you watch the video for ‘Look Around,’ the latest single off their 2011 album ‘I’m With You.’ The video mimics that idea, with each member getting his own room in the clip, where he is seen playing his instrument and dancing and prancing around maniacally.
