Slipknot‘s new posting is creeping me out this morning!! The GOAT HEADS ARE BACK!  Watch it here.  Lou Brutus interviewed Corey Taylor this weekend at Rock Fest in Cadott, WI and got some exclusive info I hope we can share soon!  I also heard everything will be new!  New masks, new outfits, even NEW LOGO!    So excited and can’t wait for Knotfest and new KNOT music!….OK, so let’s get back to Rock Fest in Cadott!  Lou is texting me from the plane and said the weekend was outstanding.  He interviewed most of the bands on the bill (at least the ones we play here on the shows) and introduced a few of the bands.  Lou also had his own MEET & GREET  that he said went amazing  and even got recognized ordering breakfast this morning the drive thru at McDonald’s on Eau Claire this morning!  Awesome!  He said sets by Cheap Trick and Aerosmith were outstanding. And the only bummer was he was supposed to introduce Rob Zombie and just before the show, he was told it was a no-go.  Rob tried to do a couple of songs, but his lost his voice and had to stop the show.  I don’t think he’s ever had that happen before. Blabbermouth reported Rob saying,  ”Sorry, everybody. I wish my voice wasn’t so f*@ked. I knew from the first second we started that it was impossible to get through the show.” The festival organizers posted: “Sorry Rock Festers. We didn’t mean for Rock Fest to end this way. What we were told is Rob Zombie’s voice went. We tried to get him back on stage, but to no avail. That’s what took so long.” The local newspaper, Leader Telegram posted this story. Meanwhile, if you hit the NEW hardDriveRadio APP, you can find Lou’s posts with pictures. ….Speaking of Corey Taylor, Pulse Of Radio says with San Diego’s massive Comic-Con International right around the corner, Stone Sour has released one last lyric video from its conceptual double album House Of Gold And Bones. The clip is for the title track, which appeared on the second of the two discs, and goes heavy on artwork from the comic books based on the album, which were issued last year by the Dark Horse Comics publishing company.  Singer Corey Taylor, who came up with the album’s concept and wrote the comics, told us a while back what the basic storyline was: “It’s essentially a sci-fi/fantasy story that I created, but at its heart, it’s essentially about a man, standing at the crossroads of his life, trying to figure out what comes next. He’s got 20, 30 years in front of him — who’s he going to be for that 20 or 30 years? Is he going to allow himself to evolve and become a better man, become a different man? And, you know, it’s kind of wrapped in this insane world that I created.”….Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst told Billboard  the band’s fifth studio album is well on its way to completion, saying, “We’ve been writing non-stop and recording a lot. We have a good 10 songs, probably, recorded. We’re almost done with this record. We have another couple months to do in this studio and we’re done with this thing. It’ll hopefully be out by early next year.” As for what the record sounds like, Walst told us it goes back to the Canadian act’s roots: It’s a pretty aggressive record. You know, the last record, Transit Of Venus, we kind of brought the synth world in a little bit and, you know, experimented a little bit with songwriting and our whole process. But you know, I’ve got to tell you, this record is really quite heavy and, you know, sonically and lyrically. It’s just got a heavy sound and there’s some really great songs on it. Man, I’m excited for people to hear it because I think they’re gonna really like it.”….Artist Direct reports Godsmack apparently has a huge fan in Hugh Jackman, best known as Wolverine in the X-Men movies. Jackman, who has to do extensive training whenever he plays the clawed mutant, said, “When I train, I listen to really hard stuff. While I’m working out, I listen to a lot of Godsmack as loudly as I can. That’s the closest to Wolverine that I can get (Laughs)!”…..Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit is a decent director.  Example:  ”The Education of Charlie Banks.”  If you haven’t seen it and want to watch something on Netflix,  it’s worth it.   Anyhow, he’s directing ads for eHarmony  right now.  Check it out…..Sorry to hear longtime Primus drummer Tim Alexander, who has also played with A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, suffered a heart attack late last week and will undergo open heart surgery this week to clear a blockage from his arteries. Alexander has played on and off with Primus from 1988 to the present, while doing some early live shows with A Perfect Circle and recording the drum tracks for the song “The Hollow” from the band’s debut disc, Mer De Noms. He has also played on both of Puscifer’s studio albums and one EP (Thanks Loudwire.)

The nominations for the show were announced and typically leaned in the direction of pop, dance and urban music, with the exception of a handful of categories. Linkin Park’s “Until It’s Gone” and the Black Keys’ “Fever” are both competing in the Best Rock Video category, alongside Imagine Dragons‘ “Demons,” Arctic Monkeys‘ “Do I Wanna Know?” and Lorde‘s “Royals.” Elsewhere, 30 Seconds To Mars is nominated for Best Cinematography for its “City Of Angels” clip, while Jack White’s “Lazaretto” video earned a nod for Best Visual Effects….Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims’ families of the horrible crash in Ukraine of the Malaysian Air plane filled with nearly 300 people.  With all the madness going on in the world, I wanted to share Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam‘s comments on the band’s website.   He was responding to the attacks directed against him over anti-war comments he made at a show in England last Friday (July 11th). Some claimed Vedder’s remarks accused Israel of warmongering over the current conflict with Palestine, while others supported the singer’s comments. Vedder wrote:“Most of us have heard John Lennon sing, ‘You may say I’m a dreamer… but I’m not the only one.’ And some of us, after another morning dose of news coverage full of death and destruction, feel the need to reach out to others to see if we are not alone in our outrage. With about a dozen assorted ongoing conflicts in the news everyday, and with the stories becoming more horrific, the level of sadness becomes unbearable. And what becomes of our planet when that sadness becomes apathy? Because we feel helpless. And we turn our heads and turn the page. Currently, I’m full of hope. That hope springs from the multitudes of people that our band has been fortunate enough to play for night after night here in Europe. To see flags of so many different nations, and to have these huge crowds gathered peacefully and joyfully is the exact inspiration behind the words I felt the need to emphatically relay. When attempting to make a plea for more peace in the world at a rock concert, we are reflecting the feelings of all those we have come in contact with so we may all have a better understanding of each other. That’s not something I’m going to stop anytime soon. Call me naïve. I’d rather be naïve, heartfelt and hopeful than resigned to say nothing for fear of misinterpretation and retribution. The majority of humans on this planet are more consumed by the pursuit of love, health, family, food and shelter than any kind of war. War hurts. It hurts no matter which sides the bombs are falling on. With all the global achievements in modern technology, enhanced communication and information devices, cracking the human genome, land rovers on Mars etc., do we really have to resign ourselves to the devastating reality that conflict will be resolved with bombs, murder and acts of barbarism? We are such a remarkable species. Capable of creating beauty. Capable of awe-inspiring advancements. We must be capable of resolving conflicts without bloodshed. I don’t know how to reconcile the peaceful rainbow of flags we see each night at our concerts with the daily news of a dozen global conflicts and their horrific consequences. I don’t know how to process the feeling of guilt and complicity when I hear about the deaths of a civilian family from a U.S. drone strike. But I know that we can’t let the sadness turn into apathy. And I do know we are better off when we reach out to each other.  ‘I hope someday you’ll join us…’ ‘Won’t you listen to what the man said.’ “…..Celebrating birthdays this weekend:  Daron Malakian of System of a Down is 39, Aaron Gillespie (ex-Underoath) is 31 and Nelson Mandela was born on this day in 1918.  On Saturday, Queen guitarist Brian May is 67 and Machine Head’s singer/guitarist Rob Flynn is 46.  Sunday, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden turns 50! Pearl Jam’s guitarist Stone Gossard is 48 and Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale will be 38.

Waiting for iTunes to post our app.  I think I have bitten off all my nails waiting for a week now!   Come on, guys!  Let it ROLL, will ya??!!!!!….I love Dave Grohl.  He has no filter, kinda like me!  This is from Pulse Of Radio: The Foo Fighters frontman blasted singing competition shows like American Idol and The Voice when he appeared at a press event for TV critics last week to promote his upcoming documentary series on HBO. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Grohl told journalists at the event, “I don’t want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you’re not a good singer. Don’t get me started. To me, that’s not what music’s about.” Grohl is not adverse to TV itself, having guest-hosted Chelsea Lately and done numerous musical performances over the years on late-night shows. Dave produced and directed the new series, Sonic Highways, which follows the Foo Fighters as they journey to eight states and eight studios during the sessions for their next album. The process of visiting historic studios had an impact on the music the Foos made for the record, with Grohl telling the Hollywood Reporter, “I couldn’t just write a three-and-a-half-minute long KROQ jingle and film it for the finale of an episode about the history of music in New Orleans, ya know? We really had to step up what we do.” Sonic Highways and the still-untitled Foo Fighters album will both arrive this fall….Linkin Park turntablist  & video director Joseph Hahn‘s debut as a feature film director, a movie called Mall, will have its premiere screening at San Diego’s massive Comic-Con International next week. The film will be shown on Thursday, July 24th, as part of the fifth annual Nerd HQ festivities thrown during the con by Chuck star Zachary Levi‘s Nerd Machine company. The screening will take place at PetCo Park in downtown San Diego immediately after Linkin Park performs there at mtvU’s Fandom Awards.  The film will be followed-up by a Q&A session featuring Hahn, the movie’s producers and cast members. Mall features Vincent D’Onofrio, who also wrote and produced the movie, Gina GershonPeter Stormare and others. The film focuses on a group of suburbanites whose lives are changed by a random shooting at the local mall.  There’s no word yet on a theatrical release date for the film, although it is expected to come out this fall.  Linkin Park will hit sheds and amphitheaters on the Carnivores Tour with 30 Seconds To Mars and AFI, beginning on August 8th in West Palm Beach, FL.  Meanwhile, Chester Bennington is not just hanging around the house before the band heads off on tour. He’s been over at the DeLeo Brothers‘ home studios to work on new Stone Temple Pilots stuff.  The band will perform in October at the Louder Than Lifefestival in Louisville, KY.  I’ll be there! Will you????….This is funny.  The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen recently revealed that ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons got very friendly with her when the two of them appeared together onstage at the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods Awards in May. Momsen and Gibbons showed up to perform with Joan Jett and Momsen recalled how the day went: “A little bit of a hectic chaos, but a good time nonetheless. Joan Jett’s the coolest chick ever so it was a blast playing with her, and we got a surprise guest with Billy Gibbons and he touched my butt. He was just lookin’ for some tush.”…. AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd will release his first solo album, titled Head Job, on August 29th. Rudd told an Australian radio station about the disc, “I hope everyone thinks this is a great album from start to finish because that’s the idea. There’s plenty of Phil on there, but no filler.” Asked about AC/DC’s own recently completed new album, Rudd replied, ““I’m very happy to have it all done. It’s all very good, by the way. There’s no comparisons between the two but they’re both very good.” (Ultimate Classic Rock)…Rob Zombie has posted a new piece of production art online from 31, the original horror movie he’s getting ready to direct this fall. Zombie said about the image of three skeletal figures standing next to a van, “Lots of news on my next film 31 will be coming your way very soon. But until then I thought I share with your one many awesome production drawings from the film courtesy of Alex Horley.“ In other news, Zombie and Walking Dead comic artist Tony Moore have created an animated short inspired by the upcoming video game Assassin’s Creed Unity. The clip will be unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 25th. Lou Brutus will sit down with Mr Zombie and we’ll get more poop on this at Rockfest in Cadott, WI this weekend!…..On the hardDrive hotLine today,  Tim McIlrath of Rise Against.  Can’t say enough how much I am loving their new album The Black Market.  Check it out for yourselves!  You’ll thank me!…..Over the weekend we lost Tommy Ramone.  Now comes this! I just read on Blabbermouth blues guitar legend Johnny Winter has passed on.  He was only 70.  Read more about his life here…..Happy 65th to Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler!

#Re2pect!   Derek Jeter.  Final All-Star Game  and his final season as a  NY Yankee and an MLB player.  He’s been amazing.  How many ball players do you know who’ve played for one team and one team only in their careers! (Ok Chipper Jones.)  But New Yorkers and baseball fans everywhere are gonna miss the man and the way he played.  That’s CLASS!….Man, I had a blast yesterday with You Me At Six!   What nice guys and what a fun interview we had.  Was cool getting to know them.   (And I think I may have sparked an idea about putting their 2011 song “Bite My Tongue,” featuring Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon, out here in America when they release a deluxe edition of Cavalier Youth.  You’ve got to see it on YouTube!)  Anyhow,  after work, I met up with them at the Vevo offices right over in Times Square!  What a fun bunch of folks who work over there!  hardDrive may have found a fun play pal!  Those guys have a party room complete with a pool table and bar on the 25th floor overlooking Times Square!   Anyhow, was great times.  I also got to take a peek at the upcoming video for Five Finger Death Punch.  All I’m gonna say is WAIT TIL YOU SEE IT. It will blow you away!….Meanwhile, getting Lou Brutus all set up with interviews at Rockfest in Cadott, WI  this weekend.  He’s gonna have a blast there!   Wish I was joining him, but I got to travel last weekend, so I am stayin’ put.  Many thanks to Jill and the folks at Rockfest for being so accommodating!  They rock!….Meanwhile, tomorrow, I will be on the hotLine with Tim McIlrath of Rise Against.  I hear they shot a video down in Nigeria that makes a statement about #SaveOurGirls.  That’s huge of them. Will find out more about it when I speak with Tim.  The Black Market was released yesterday and I love it.  Check it out over on iTunes or wherever you buy your music…..Well, now we know why there’s no Tool music! Guitarist Adam Jones and drummer Danny Carey have revealed the real reasons why the band has not made an album since 2006 in a new interview with Rolling Stone. The biggest hold-up has been a “multi-level lawsuit” that started in 2007 when a friend of the band claimed he had created artwork for the group and wanted credit for it. Then an insurance company Tool had hired for the sole purpose of defending the band against lawsuits turned around and sued the band over technicalities regarding the case. The band countersued the insurer, with the case finally going to trial next January after seven years.  Carey said, “The bad thing is it’s really time consuming. As we’ve gotten older and our priorities have changed, it’s hard to get the band on a good, solid schedule as it is. People have kids now. And there’s lots of other things that pop up. To throw this into the mix, it makes everything that much worse and stresses people out.”  Jones added the lawsuit has cost the band “millions and millions and millions of dollars,” saying, “We’re fighting the good fight. We’re going to trial and we want to crush them. But every time we’ve gotten close to going to trial, it gets postponed and we’ve wasted money and time and it has just drained our creative energy.” Even through all the financial and legal turmoil, Jones, Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor have come up with enough raw material for an album and have one song that’s “pretty much done,” with the rest needing further refinement before they’re sent to vocalist Maynard James Keenan.  Both band members describing the overall feel of the band’s new music as “heavy,” with Jones saying, “Sometimes I feel we get a little too proggy or too into exploring time signatures but not getting heavy enough for my taste. There are some good nose-bleeding riffs happening, and I’m really happy about that. It’s not out-of-the-gate crazy heavy, but there are these little journeys with nice paths that end up very heavy.”   The guitarist said that while Tool has always had complete creative freedom, the band’s legal issues have put a damper on that. He revealed, “I find it so hard to be creative when you have something awful nagging at you, just stuck between the hemispheres of your brain and affecting your sleep and your relationship with other band members . . . It’s just a shame.” Neither Jones nor Carey offered a possible timeline for when a new album might arrive, but Carey said, “I’m hoping that we have something really solid recorded by the end of the year,” Jones added, “We’re just not going to settle for doing anything but our best work, and the fans appreciate that.” (Thanks to Pulse of Radio for their report)….Adelitas Way have a new music video for an album track called “Drive.”  It’s off their forthcoming album Stuck, which drops Jul 29th.  The record was produced by Nick Raskulinecz in Nashville. And if you missed the “Dog On A Leash” video, click here… In This Moment has thrown its support behind an anti-suicide campaign called Never Alone, Never Unloved. Learn more about the campaign at this location. The band is currently at work on its fifth studio album, which will follow up 2012′s Blood. (Brave Words)…And last, but not least, the boys in Slipknot have posted a very creepy snippet.  (I bet Clown had something to do with this!)  Watch it here. Slipknot‘s official website and Facebook page have been updated with creepy images and sounds in preparation for the release of the band’s long-awaited new album, tentatively due late fall. In addition, there are all-new graphics, including a new version of the nonagram. A title and release date have yet to be unveiled for the disc, which follows up 2008′s All Hope Is Gone. (Blabbermouth)….And sorry, but yesterday we missed remembering  Deftones bassist, Chi Cheng’s birthday.  He would’ve been 44.

Good Tuesday, folks!  Flood watch in NYC.  Which is scary.  We have rats.  I think they know how to swim…..While Lou Brutus is packing his bags for Rockfest Cadott this weekend, one of the bands on the Friday bill, Alter Bridge, just announced a round of new dates.  See Road Rage.  Looks like these will be the band’s final dates behind their Fortress album, which means Myles Kennedy will start to get to work with Slash and Mark Tremonti will start work on the next Tremonti album.  So win win all around, eh?…. Lindsey Stirling with Lzzy Hale  on Good Morning America.  Should be on YouTube later today if you missed it live!  If you look closely, you can see Joe Hottinger in on the set, too!…..AH!  My favorite song on the new Hellyeah album is called “Moth.”  The band has finally posted a video for it.  Watch it here!….Brian Johnson of AC/DC!  Ya gotta love him!   He was given the honorarium title of Doctor of Music from Northumbria University in Newcastle, England on Wednesday Jul 09.   Check it out here….In This Moment will be announcing a new tour very soon with Starset and Twelve Foot Ninja!  Great bill!   More on that in the coming weeks.  I hear the new ITM album takes the band to yet new levels.   Can’t wait!….Theory Of A Deadman are filming a new video for “Savages,” the title track of their album, and are hoping to have guest vocalist Alice Cooper join them.  Coop is currently on a massive tour.  More on that soon…..You Me At Six are coming to visit me this morning at the hardDrive studios.  Looking forward to meeting them!  And I just got turned onto a track they did a couple of years ago called “Bite My Tongue”  with Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon.  I love it!  Watch the video here!  You Me At Six will kick off their US tour on Sep 15th with Young Guns in Los Angeles at the world famous Troubadour!  Exciting news on this coming soon!  Be sure you are a registered hardDriveRadio Radical or else!..Billy Corgan  will take time out from recording the next two Smashing Pumpkins albums, both due in 2015, to perform a very special, exclusive hometown acoustic-based solo concert Saturday, August 30 at Ravinia Festival in Chicago, the oldest outdoor music festival in America and the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1936.  The singer/songwriter/guitarist and multiple Grammy Award winner’s set will encompass material from the Pumpkins’ acclaimed, multi-platinum catalog, including a “Mellon Collie Suite” of songs to celebrate the 20th anniversary of writing the album. Concertgoers will also be treated to his songs with Zwan from their one-and-only 2003 album and his 2005 solo album TheFutureEmbrace plus songs from his unreleased ChicagoKid album (recorded before TheFutureEmbrace), a song cycle about his hometown. More information and tickets are available here.  “I feel many of my songs are under-represented by the construct of playing in the Pumpkins, which is almost always loud,” says Corgan, whose only other acoustic-based show took place at Chicago’s Metro in 2004. “And I look forward to the intimacy of that kind of performance no matter how big the stage is.”  On the set list will be some material from the Smashing Pumpkins album Adore, due out this fall (release date October TBA) in a multiple CD/DVD configuration via Virgin/Ume. Since he’s been busy preparing this reissue. In other news, Corgan will be honored with the Alternative Press Vanguard Award at the Inaugural Alternative Press Music Awards, to be held at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum in Cleveland, OH on Monday, Jul 21. I’ve heard some of the new material and it harkens back to the rockin’ early days of the Pumpkins.  Could Melissa Auf der Maur be returning to the Pumpkins’ fold?…New in stores today:  Rise Against The Black Market….Happy 41st today to John Dolmayan of System Of A Down, Happy 58th to Marky Ramone and Happy 48th to Jason Bonham!
