This week, Dave Mustaine is looking to sell his house to “the right buyer” (real estate speak for “full price or f— off!”), 1969 Velvet Underground concerts get released, the Foo Fighters have a free EP that they didn’t even force you to download, Foreigner announce tour dates and skip Paris, Duff McKagan talks funk groove jamming, and Great White rise from the ashes to start working on another new album.
Also, Pyra chats about seeing Public Image Ltd. live and complains about the anachronistic anti-Christian songs and Johnny’s jazz improv rhythm stylings (side note: wrong rhythms make Pyra’s skin crawl). She also waxes rhapsodic about the wonders of stripper heels and rambles on about the importance of musical cross-fertilization.
Plus: “technical difficulties” is a funny way to spell “Pyra screwed up” and six months is amazingly efficient for bureaucrats.
Lots of ranting about the Paris atrocities and media malpractise as the journalists insist this has nothing to do with Islam and the French edition of the Huffington Post even suggests climate change is to blame.
Also: U2 decides Paris has suffered enough and cancels their show, Marilyn Manson isn’t so brave against non-Christian zealots, Robert Smith looks possessed by the ghost of Andrea Dworkin, Metallica plan to keep touring til they go senile, and the latest rumors say that the classic Guns N Roses reunion will only be 40% more classic than Axl’s current band.
Plus: Charlie Sheen has HIV, a blog about obsessive junkies, and jokes about emergency contacts for pole dancing class.
This week: the Rolling Stones are polishing up their walkers for some new tour dates in 2016; whatsisface from Linkin Park is no longer in the Stone Temple Pilots; Richard Fortus’ NYC condo is up for rent; and a special Guns N Roses Christmas t-shirt.
Plus: Pyra bitches about her dad’s guilt trips and his conviction that every little ache and pain is a sure sign of terminal cancer that he won’t go get checked out anyway; decides to get cover-ups for the tattoos she wants to get rid of; starts doing more music stuff again; and tries and fails to remember how an old Merlin song goes.
All this and a lame suburban fitness classes inspired by Animal from the Muppets.
On this week’s show: Nikki Sixx doesn’t see any purpose in making new Mötley Crüe tunes after the final tour; Ozzy says no to a new Black Sabbath album, but yes to a new show on the History Channel; bad-at-math Bret Michaels says Poison will do something special for their 32nd anniversary next year; Motorhead booze brands continue, this time with a beer; and Gilby Clarke wants to remind folks that he’s totally available for any potential Guns N Roses reunion.
Also: Pyra eats too much Halloween candy and carves an “Izzy-o-Lantern.”
Plus: Phil Collins unretires himself and Zamo the Destroyer advocates drastic action to stop him.
