Metalheadlines: Boring edition

I’m not gonna lie to you, all the news in this post is boring as hell and probably won’t interest you. But hey, it is what it is, so let’s get rollin’:

New Ozzy guitarist Gus G. (pictured above) has an upcoming tutorial video for Guitarist Magazine. You can find a sample video right here. Don’t hold your breath.

Evile‘s new album is called Five Serpent’s Teeth and it will be released on September 26. If you’re like me, you probably don’t care about its artwork. But if you’re not like me, you can check it out here. It’s not bad.

I didn’t watch the 2009 Tony Awards, but I wish I did. Because this happened. And Bret Michaels is now suing them. The lawsuit itself has been moved to New York. Isn’t that where Metalsucks is located? They should go there and make fun of Bret in person.

Corey Taylor (of Slipknot and Stone Sour fame) wrote a book. He will read from that book online via a webchat. This chat happens Monday, July 11 ad 5 pm EST. If you happen to be online around that time, simply avoid this site.

Supergroup Chickenfoot signed a distribution deal with eOne Music. If you ever wanted to hear what a post-David Lee Roth Van Halen would sound like with Satriani on guitar and RHCP’s Chad Smith on drums, wait for their new album which is due in September.


Gus and Zakk, sitting in a tree…

I usually don’t like posting photos of bad quality on this site, as they ugly it up, but that moment above was way too precious not to use. Aww…

So… Ozzy‘s new guitarist, Gus G., finally met the guy he replaced: Zakk Wylde. That’s pretty much all you need to know. Dave, if you’re reading this, see? You don’t have to hate your replacement if you were fired before he joined your band.

This is what Gus said last year:

No. I haven’t met Zakk, I didn’t contact him. I’ve read all the stuff that he has said about me in the press, and that was very nice of him and that really means a lot to me because if one of my all-time favorite guitar heroes is giving me the thumbs up only gives me more confidence.

So he was a fan and Zakk encouraged him in the press. You know, we gave Zakk a hard time for not showering, but dude seems to be pretty polite and friendly. Unlike other guitarists/vocalists we could mention.

Make the jump for a lot of vids of Zakk talking about his gear and guitar playing.


Some interviews

Joe Satriani (pictured above) gave an interview. Sadly, nobody asked him if he’s a full time Moby impersonator.

Gus G. of Ozzy Osbourne and Firewind infamy also gave an interview. Rumor has it that Ozzy is the first human taxidermy puppet. Sadly, Gus had no comment when asked if it was true. He just nodded.

Let’s see now, can you guess what Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge gave? Is it a) birth or b) an interview? Find out here. You lose.

Crashdïet have a video interview. This is okay and all but who the hell are they? Make the jump for the video though. Maybe you’re more informed than I am.
