Whocares? I do and so should you

Do you care that Whocares have released some singles details? Perhaps you will if I were to tell you that Whocares is the name of the new music project staring none other than the legends that are Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath etc), Jon Lord, Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), Mikko “Linde” Lindström (HIM) and Jason Newsted (Metallica). Seriously, this must be the superest super group ever. Like Superman on speed.

Whocares will release both ‘Out Of My Mind‘ and ‘Holy Water’ on  May 6: The CD single will also contain the video clip of ‘Out Of My Mind’ and a 40-minute documentary that displays Gillan’s and Iommi’s involvement with the Armenia cause over the years.

Check out the trailer above, and read Blabbermouth for more information.


Newsted got a job

At least a job that doesn’t involve flipping burgers…

I kid, I kid, I love Jason… Well, loved him more when he was relevant, but… Ok, enough hasbeen jokes. He’s made an appearance ‘all-star’ band (we told you about earlier) whose name pretty much sums up how we feel about it.

“Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and Mikko “Linde” Lindström, guitarist for the Finnish “love metal” band HIM, have recorded guest appearances on the track “Out Of My Mind” from the all-star charity project Whocares — featuring Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi and Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan alongside keyboardist Jon Lord (Deep Purple, Whitesnake ) and drummer Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden).”

IDONTREALLYCARE, but to be honest, it doesn’t sound as bad as other ‘all-star bands’ like let’s say Velvet Revolver. Will probably have to check out their song(s) anyway when I’ll post about them in the future, so color me mildly interested.  If you’re a skinny Asian chick with huge tits, color me green and do me like I’m Godzilla.

Black & Purple Maiden

Tony Iommi (Guitars, Black Sabbath), Ian Gillan (Vocals, Deep Purple), Nicko McBrain (Drums, Iron Maiden) and Jon Lord (Keyboard, Deep Purple) are going to record a charity song to raise money to rebuild the Armenian Music School.

Iommi and Gillan were already involved in a charity re-recording of Deep Purple’s biggest hit ‘Smoke on the Water’ to raise money for something something* in Armenia in 1989.

* If you really want to know what they raised money for, read the Blabbermouth article.

My thoughts: Deep Purple are still doing music? And Nicko McBrain still has a weird shaped nose.
