Perry Farrell wants you to watch him have virtual sex in ‘Kind Heaven’ project

Posted by on March 16, 2018

There’s a thin line between genius and insanity. While many of us are questioning whether we want to see holograms of a dead artist performing across the globe, has anyone stopped to ask yourself if you would want to see a hologram of Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell having “delightful sex?” Most likely, the answer would […]

Posted by on August 7, 2017

If you’ve seen the Foo Fighters live, you know that they always give 110%. Whether you like them or not, it’s not out of the realm of impossibility that they’ll play for 2 1/2 hours every night, with not just deep cuts from their extensive catalog, but also some covers.

We can’t even imagine how the family and friends of the grunge icon feel. Artists including his Audioslave bandmate Tom Morello […]

Slayer, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden among those called out by Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament at rock hall induction

Posted by on April 10, 2017

While we didn’t attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past Friday, with the exception of Rush’s Geddy Lee playing bass with Yes as they were inducted, it doesn’t appear like we missed all that much. Journey was inducted, and while Steve Perry was present, he didn’t perform with the band, despite media […]

Guest post: vaping replacing smoking in the music industry

Posted by on January 10, 2017

When it comes to a health-conscious lifestyle, metal isn’t the first thing you’d immediately think of. The image most of us have of musicians is one that revolves around, well… sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll – drinking, smoking and hard partying. Throughout their careers, icons like Lemmy were hardly ever photographed without a cigarette, nor Slash and countless others, […]

After 25 years of Lollapalooza, even Perry Farrell hates EDM

Posted by on July 25, 2016

Nothing lasts forever, but this weekend’s Lollpalooza marks the 25th anniversary of the festival. However, Lolla co-founder and Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell appears to be kind of over it, and is starting something new in 2018. Actually, he didn’t even intend on it lasting beyond it’s first year, in which Nine Inch Nails, Ice-T, the […]

Posted by on March 23, 2016

Last night, Lollapalooza announced their lineup. As is the case since 2005, instead of being a touring festival, it will be held at Chicago’s Grant Park. This year, however, it’s expanded to four days, July 28-31. While there’s usually at least a handful of metal bands playing the alternative festival, it’s in pretty short supply […]
