Corey Taylor Of Slipknot Talks About Facing Emotions
In an interview with WAAF the Corey Taylor says “that even though there was the idea that several songs would be about Gray, approaching them meant addressing the feelings caused by his death from an accidental overdose.”
“I knew that in order to tell this correctly, we were gonna have to come at it from a very emotional point of view, and that meant facing some of the emotions that we had dealt with over the last four years, whether it was guilt, anger, because there is a natural progression that happens before you kind of reach that point of acceptance. And there’s nobody really there to coach you through it,”

Sammy Hagar Forced To Cancel Shows Due To Hurricane Odile
Sammy Hagar said “This year marks our 24th anniversary so nothing short of a massive hurricane could have kept me from Cabo”.
“But after seeing the damage that Odile’s caused to Los Cabos’ airport, resorts and town, it’s with an incredibly heavy heart that we’ve come to that decision.
“Our prayers and best wishes are with our Cabo Wabo family and everyone that’s been affected by this storm. Los Cabos will recover better and stronger than before because of its incredibly strong community.”
Metallica Live Release Of Box Set Announced
“We’ve been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours!,” posted the band on Tuesday. “Over the years we’ve been able to offer more download options adding HD audio and Apple lossless files to the mix, but we still get requests for the “old school” compact disc. To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen!”
“Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD!,” they continued. “We are gonna roll out three shows at a time on Mondays. We want to keep it simple, so we’ll go in order of when the shows were played starting with Bogotá, Colombia, Quito, Ecuador and Lima, Peru from the March South American run. Next week the next three shows will be available and so on.”
“For those of you who want it all, we’re also giving you a chance to pre-order a box set with all 27 shows included, which will ship in December,” said Metallica. “There’s that special concept of a volume discount and you’ll have a box to store all your CD’s in. CD’s will be priced at the very clever price of $19.81 a pop with the box set at $417.00 (spot the savings!) and you can place your orders at either LiveMetallica.com or in the Met Store.”
Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer Tells Why He Kicked Drugs
Spencer told KZRR: “I’d been up for a couple of days in Vegas, doing coke and meth and drinking the whole time. I had a straw in one hand and a bottle of Jack in the other for something like 20 hours.
“All of a sudden my body just went, ‘Enough.’ I started convulsing, my heart was starting to skip beats, I was breaking out in cold sweats and I was shaking. It was really scary.
“I was laying on the bed thinking, ‘You may have done it this time, you idiot.’ Then I started thinking about how bummed out my parents were going to be. That their son, who left him at 19 to achieve this dream, finally achieved it – then he’s going to die.”
Spencer told himself: “‘If you get out of this one, you’re going to fix it.'”
