Ozzy Osbourne On Justin Bieber

Well it has happened, Ozzy has finally been asked about Justin Bieber and lets say, as expected, we got a pretty awesome come back from him. Personally I do not like Justin Bieber for a lot of reasons… He is immature and un-talented! So… This is what Ozzy had to say:
Award ceremonies are insane and confusing, you’ve got idiot journalists asking for advice on people like Justin Bieber! I was like you’re asking me, for advice on Justin fucking Bieber! He threw an egg at a neighbours house and got nicked and you’re asking Ozzy Osbourne, who bit the head off a bat?! Here’s some advice: slap his arse and tell him to go to bed.”
Now I totally agree with Ozzy here, who in the right mind would ask the Prince of Darkness about Justin Bieber of all people, I think the answer they got was to be expected.. Think whoever this journalist is needs to do background checks before asking such silly questions…

Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, Lou Reed, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and more are nominees for The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame!
This is the first year both Green Day and Nine Inch Nails have been nominated, as musicians are only eligible 25 years after the release of their fist album.
List of nominees:
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band: American rock and roll collides with real South side Chicago blues.
Chic: A powerful combination of groove, soul and distinctly New York City studio smarts.
Green Day: Perennial punk adolescents, true to the basement and garage-rock band ethos.
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts: A potent mix of hard rock, glam, punk, metal and garage rock that’s relevant in any era.
Kraftwerk: The foundation of all synthesiser-based rock and roll and electronic dance music.
The Mavelettes: Motown’s first official Number One hit makers.
N.W.A: Massive influence, sonic power and boundary-smashing perspective.
Nine Inch Nails: The sounds and sights of transgressive art launched into the mainstream.
Lou Reed: Forty-plus years shaping the sound and the sense of contemporary music.
The Smiths: Four band mates, five ears, four albums and a vast sphere of influence.
The Spinners: One of the worlds most beloved R&B vocal groups.
Sting: A singular worldview reflected in a broad musical palette.
Stevie Ray Vaughan: The fiery show-stopper who influenced a generation of blues players.
War: A steamy mix of blues and soul, rock and R&B, built up on strong Afro-Latin foundation.
Bill Withers: A unique composer and vocalist, with songs that spoke for everyone.
Joel Peresman says:
The group of nominees represent the myriad places where rock n roll converges with blues, electronic, dance, Motown, R&B, funk and other genres. Rock n Roll incorporates the style of so many different kinds of music. That’s what makes this group of nominees and this art form so powerful and unique.”
Last year, Nirvana were inducted into the Hall Of Fame!

The XCERTS Unveil New Single, Pop Song

The single is taken from the third full-length - the follow-up to 2010’s Scatterbrain, it will be released November 3rd through Raygun Music. The album, titles There Is Only You, was produced by Dave Eringa and long-term friend Paul steel. You can pre-order the album HERE!

Murray McLead says:

                     ”Lyrically the song is about falling in love with someone and being so wholeheartedly terrified about the situation that you practically go into self-sabotage mode. If you like me you are an ‘over-thinker’, especially when it comes to something like falling in love, you almost convince yourself the relationship is doomed before it has even begun and you end up looking at a near perfect situation very negatively, which is just batshit crazy. A personal fear that I’m sure many folks can relate to.”

4th November 2014 - Birmingham Sunflower Lounge

Bloodstock 2015 Announce More Bands

More bands have been announced for Bloodstock Festival 2015.

Following the news that Within Temptation, Opeth, Isahn, Cannibal Corpse and Sepultura will be playing the huge metal weekender, even more bands have been revealed for Cotton Parks Bloodstock Festival.

Death DTA will be joining the line-up, as well as Cali mob Dark Angel and East Coast thrashers Nuclear Assault.

”In 2015, it will be 30 years since Nuclear Assault solidified our line-up and started making a name for ourselves in the metal/crossover scene.” Nuclear Assault say. ”To commemorate this, the band will write and record another album and play some shows for a Final Assault. The live front will be of a limited nature due to the reality of people in the band having careers that they can’t just walk away from for the time needed to go tour the world like we did in the 80’s. Nevertheless, we will try to do whatever we can, especially in the summer to get out there and thrash for everyone again. Progress on writing will not go quickly due to a couple of facts; we are geographically challenged, so can’t just jam once a week like we used to, and we want to make sure that this album is really killer so we can go out with a big bang.”

Current Line Up:

Bloodstock Open Air
6TH - 9TH AUGUST 2015
Within Temptation
with special guests
Cannibal Corpse-Death DTA- Sepultura-Dark Angel-IHS AHN-Nuclear Assault

Man Launches Kickstarter Campaign To Ban Nickelback From London!

A man has launched a campaign to ban Nickelback from performing in London again.
Craig Mandell set up ‘Don’t let Nickel Back’ recently.
His Kickstarter reads:
”Following the recent crowd-funding of Foo Fighters gig in Richmond, Virginia that did not exist, the Foo Fighters agreed to play the gig - subsequently travelling to Richmond and performing for thousands of adoring fans who helped make it happen.
In a similar vein, we are attempting to ensure that Canadian ‘rockers’ Nickelback do not come to London, England to play a gig. With your help, we can ensure the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here - not even phone here.
Just imagine. thousands - perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers - all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary. Dare we say, game changing?”
Personally I find this person very selfish… Not only to the fact that he will be taking away the opportunity for Nickelback fans to see the band live but also taking away the bands opportunity to play an amazing venue in an amazing area, which they have worked their asses off to be able to play places like London… If this guy doesn’t like the band fair enough because personally I am not a big fan myself. That doesn’t mean I would take the opportunity for their fans to see them, it just means I wont pay to go and see them, not like they are going to be harming anyone else…
What’s your opinion?
