Gene Simmons Tells Immigrants “Learn To Speak English

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Gene Simmons from KISS speaks his mind: “I’m actually saying the thing that needs to be said because the politically-correct climate is bulls–t. You don’t want to upset anybody by saying, ‘Learn to speak g–damn English.’ So, as an immigrant, I’m telling you: learn to speak g–damn English. It is the key that will unlock the keys to the kingdom.”

Velvet Revolver Denies That They Are Holding Auditions

Scott Weiland stated in a recent interview that he heard that Velvet Revolver were holding auditions and that he wondered if he should join “the cattle call.” Even though he’s talked recently about potentially returning, the band’s members have not reciprocated with an invite.

McKagan told VH1 Radio Networks that Weiland’s assertion that there are auditions being held is a little off base. He explains (as excerpted by Blabbermouth), “I’m not aware that we’re auditioning right now and I think I would be aware.” The bassist went on to add, “I think, you know, that’s a band, when it’s the right time to happen again, it’ll happen.”

Duff McKagan added, “That band was so good and really started with all the right intentions and we wrote a lot of material near the end of that band. We kind of got really free musically so we’ve got all this material and it’s a really talented band.”

Crobot Announce Release Of New Album

Crobot will release their new album ‘Something Supernatural’ on October 28th. In an interview with Loudwire, Brandon Yeagley talked about working with the producer. “He was a great input — great relationship that we developed even previously before working on the album,”

Yeagley says. “We got to know Machine and hung out and understood that he definitely understands where we’re coming from and what Crobot is at its core. Working with bands like Clutch and Lionize, being our favorite bands to work with, it was really cool. He really got who we are as a band before we even stepped foot into the studio.”

Devour the Day Release ‘Respect’ Video

Guitarist Joey “Chicago” Walser told Loudwire, in a recent interview, “When people in your life are out of touch with how much their actions influence you, the first thing you start to lose is respect for them. Blake [Allison] and I wrote this song to send a message to all those that have done us wrong and through their own selfishness, changed the course of our lives. It’s not until later and after all the dust settles do you realize that you’re better off without them.”
