From Metal 2 Rock News 4 U

Something ugly this way comes...tacky Christmas sweaters from Metallica! The band’s merchandising team will soon be adding the eye-searing

A new film focusing on the halcyon days of hairbands on the Sunset Strip is on the way. The DVD, titled Inside Metal: The Pioneers Of Los Angeles Rock And Metal (1975-1981)", will be out in February of next year, and will follow the then-burgeoning heavy metal scene in L.A. from the mid-’70s through the early ‘80s including bands like Quiet Riot, Mickey Ratt (Ratt’s earlier incarnation), Legs Diamond, and Steeler (among others), plus Metallica, Van Halen, and more.

Members from Y&T, Ratt, Dokken, Armored Saint, Rough Cutt, Angel, Metallica, Great White, Quiet Riot, Keel, BulletBoys, Ratt, Autograph and more will be featured

Rush bassist/frontman Geddy Lee recently told Rolling Stone that guitarist Alex Lifeson’s now-infamous “blah, blah, blah” speech during the band’s recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was definitely unplanned. "I had no idea he was doing that,"said Geddy. “Neil [Peart, drummer] and I thought he had lost his marbles when he was talking. You can see the look on our faces behind him going, 'What the f*** is he doing?’” Added Geddy, “He's a mental case. And he's genuinely one of the funniest people you would ever meet in your life. But I wanted to kill him at the three-minute mark. Neil and I were threatening to knock him on the head and drag him offstage."

Check the footage:
(forward to the 4:40 mark for Alex’s “speech”).

This Week in Metal

Metallica’s Cliff Burton

September 27, 1986: Metallica bassist Cliff Burton (24) is killed when the band’s tour bus allegedly hits a patch of black ice (singer James Hetfield and others disputed the bus driver’s claims of ice), skids off the road and rolls onto the grass. Burton, who was sleeping at the time of the accident, was thrown through a window and crushed when the bus rolled on him. He played on Metallica’s debut, Kill ‘Em All, as well as Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets.

From Metal 2 Rock News 4 U

“I just feel that this whole generation needs to all eat a steak,” said Alice Cooper about the current state of rock n’ roll during a recent interview with Fuse. “Maybe they just need to quit eating vegetarian food and get out there and get some blood pumping in their system. Rock 'n' roll is not about 'Happy happy happy, everything's okay, there's a place for that. If I wanted to see a great clog dancing band, I'd see The Lumineers."

He added, “Mumford And Sons are great at what they do. But it's not rock 'n' roll. Don't call it rock 'n' roll. It's an offense to rock 'n' roll. I get they want to be folk rock, and I guess they want to look like everybody else. I'm old school when it comes to if you're in a band, you're an outlaw. You don't play by those rules, you're a rock 'n' roll outlaw. It doesn't mean you have to be on drugs, but when you get onstage you don't play the guitar up here, and it's not an acoustic guitar. You play the guitar down here. It doesn't come from your brain, it comes from your guts. It comes from your groin. It's sexual. It's tribal.”

He wrapped it up saying, “Okay – you guys don't want to be rock bands, great. That's better for us'. There's more for Foo Fighters, there's more for Green Day, more for the bands that really are rock bands. I don't understand why everybody is so afraid to be in a rock band."

Metallica’s upcoming film Metallica: Through The Never isn’t out till later this month (September 27), but if you want an early taste of the part concert movie, part urban thriller, you can check out a couple of clips here

Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, former guitarist for the Glenn Danzig-fronted horror punk band The Misfits, recently talked with the Phoenix New Times about the touchy subject of illegal music downloading. When asked about positive changes in the music industry, he responded, “Positive... it's usually negative. Umm... positive things. That I don't know. But I can tell you the most negative thing: People stealing music online. They don't understand that if they steal a band's music, one of those guys have to go get another regular job and they can't make more music for you. So you pay for it. It's like, if you own a motorcycle company and I went and took a bike, that's a crime, you know? Right? I pay for all my music."

"Everybody has [been affected by illegal music downloading]. Especially the smaller bands and artists, they suffer the most. It's not like Zeppelin and huge acts that don't really get affected.” He added, “You know, everyone got so mad when Lars [Ulrich, Metallica drummer] went to sue Napster and everyone was, like., 'What the f***?' It's, like, what do you mean, what the f***? He doesn't need the money, but everybody else does...It's hard, man. You wouldn't believe how many huge musicians that are popular have regular jobs…I wish he would do it again, but sue the whole Internet and fix it so nobody can.”
