More than a dozen new bands have been added to the Download 2012 line up, and if you had any doubts about going or not, one (or more) of these will probably help you make your mind up:
- Rise Against
- Steel Panther
- Black Label Society
- Kyuss Lives!
- Five Finger Death Punch
- As I Lay Dying
- Billy Talent
- Fear Factory
- and more!
Billy Talent?!? OMG I’M SO THERE!!!1!1 No, but seriously, that’s some nice lineup, joining the already awesome lineup of Metallica, Black Sabbath, and most importantly – The Prodigy, plus a shitload of more good to great bands.
Look, Slash wants a GNR reunion, period. It’s all a question of getting Axl the right amount of cash. I called this eventual GNR reunion, and I stick by my prophecies. Mark my words, guys, they will reunite.
So guess what Slash has been saying in the press again… Positive things about Axl.
“When I see footage of Guns N’ Roses, I see that fucking hunger and attitude. You could not fuck with those five guys. It was just raw. It was this lean, hungry thing on its way up. It was as sincere as any rock ‘n’ roll that I’ve ever heard, and I’m proud of that.”

If he was any more transparent, you could literally walk through him… But he’s not done…
“The split between Axl and I was a quiet one. But because there was so much attention on the breakup — and are we going to get back together? — it got built up into this monster that led to a kind of animosity that wasn’t the focus for me. Neither one of us wants to be down each other’s throats for no reason. At this point, I’m trying to put it to rest.“
Translation: The feud happened long ago, an original GNR reunion would
sell a lot of tickets kick ass, Axl, reach out to me, let’s get back together.
I don’t blame him though, I passed on the GNR-tribute-band that is the current GNR lineup, but I’d kill to see the original lineup live. They were pretty awesome.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Bumblefoot and think the guys are doing okay now, it’s just the magic of the original band that can’t be replaced, not even if it’s replaced by better musicians. Hell, DJ Ashba wants a reunion as well.
Todd Kerns, the bass player for Slash‘s solo band, revealed there are almost twenty song ready to be recorded for the follow up to Slash’s first album. The record will come out in early 2012, so you have plenty of time to supply yourself with earplugs.
Meanwhile, Axl got into a fight with almost twenty fans.
Last week we covered concert riots, and at one point I mentioned I might make a follow up. Here we are, it’s Friday Next, and let’s see if the sequel is any good.
Make the jump for ten funny, weird or simply fucked up stage incidents.
“Legendary” or “vastly overrated” guitarist, depending on on your opinion, Slash, recently joined Hip Hop act Cypress Hill on stage for a 20th anniversary concert, or something.
I don’t really know much about Cypress Hill, nor do I like the idea of Rock and Hip Hop collaborating (if I wanted a shit collaboration, I’d ask my gran to cup my balls before I cum), so if you’re interested, just head over to Blabbermouth to read more.
