Wayne Static needs a new look


You know, all men want to be taller, but Wayne Static puts the ‘complex’ in Napoleon Complex, because that motherfucker’s hairdo is so meticulously done, I sometimes wonder how many gallons of hair product he uses daily. I wonder if anyone told him that having a 6 inch tall hairdo doesn’t make you 6 inch taller.

However, nowadays Wayne’s hairdo isn’t looking too impressive. I don’t want to use the b-word, but let’s just say that what was once a thick black forest, is now a bunch of scarce trees in a deserted part of Louisiana. He’s Devin Townsending so fast, it’s almost sad looking at him.

Wayne, it doesn’t look like hair anymore. It looks like a bunch of random spikes poking out of your scalp. You might want to consider the Anselmo look. If you weren’t fooling anyone before with your extra hair inches, now the illusion is really failing.

Watch this interview with him and see that mess in action.


Metal All Stars? Yes please!


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.


Rob Halford and the Hall of Fame


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?



Getcha wax pull


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.


Not being in Metallica anymore kinda sucks


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.

Happens at around 3:08

It’s not like Jason isn’t used to falling during concerts, though.
