Yeah baby! I’m back here to tell you that I’ll be attending one of the ‘Metal All Stars’ gigs because it’s been my dream to hear a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar and this seems like the next best thing as Phil and Zakk will perform some legendary Pantera tracks together.
I know I haven’t posted much lately but the possibility of hearing “Cemetary Gates” live has brought me back from retirement.
Also part of this gig: Max Cavalera, Joey Belladonna, Nick Menza, Udo, Ross The Boss and others…
It’s two months from now but I’m excited already. Poster, tour dates and press release after the jump.
Would Rob Halford like to be in the ‘Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’? No… He’d LOVE to. Proof:
“I would love to be in the Hall Of Fame.” – Rob Halford
Full interview here.
I’m not one of those guys who criticizes award shows or other ceremonies for giving or not giving awards or honors. But let’s just say there are a lot of bands in the Hall of Fame that don’t deserve to be there before Priest.
Not that it matters too much, I don’t think you have anything to gain by being there, but a lot of people see it as a rite of passage of sorts so why not?
If you ever asked yourself where you could see a wax figure of Dimebag, you’re in luck. Apparently someone made on and it’s on display at this museum in Niagara Falls.
I never really understood the point of wax statues, to be honest with you. They almost never look like the real version, they always have something off, and they’re fucking creepy. That’s not to say I wouldn’t like to see this one if I lived near that museum, but I know people who go to wax museums and took shitloads of photos with their ‘favorite celebrities.’ Why?
You might as well Photoshop yourself next to a celebrity if you want a photo with him/her that badly, it’s the same thing.
Tell you what, $10 says this wax figure plays guitar better than anyone in nu-metal.
17 years ago he was smearing feces all over himself in a music video, as Metallica were reinventing themselves as artsy fartsy softer rock guys. Now things aren’t any better, as Jason would probably prefer smearing shit again all over himself for Metallica, rather than be thrown off the stage by a crazy fan.

It’s not like Jason isn’t used to falling during concerts, though.
Cash Money Records is a hip-hop label, yo. Wesside. Lil’ Wayne, for instance, is signed there. And say what you will about him as a rapper, but he kills this guitar solo. His thumb picking lead guitar work has influenced thousands of Down Syndrome kids around the world.
Anyway, they also welcomed Limp Bizkit on that label, trying to prove that talent isn’t really necessary to be signed to them. But now they have a brand new artist signed, and when I say artist, I’m using the term very loosely.
That’s right, folks. I’m talking about Paris Hilton. The original ‘famous for no reason whatsoever’ chick who proved two things to the world. 1. Kids don’t really need any colors in their porn videos to masturbate, green nightvision will do just fine. 2. The only talent you need in this business is the talent required to suck a dick right after pressing the REC button.
Now what does this have to do with metal? Nothing, but we’ve made it a tradition to laugh at nu-metal here, and I just wanted to show you that there is a label out there for talented folks such as Fred, Lil’ Wayne, and Paris Hilton. Well done, guys. Can’t wait to illegally download your new records, just for the chance of sending those files to the TRASH instantly.
