LOL Anyhow, see Road Rage for upcoming stops and do yourself a favor, go see them for a fun night of rock and complete off the wall madness!…..On Tuesday, Green Day announced they were commencing work on their next album. Although Green Day fans seem genuinely excited, they are apprehensive with posts asking the band to be less political and conceptual, and bring back the 90′s Green Day! I tend to agree, although many of my peers will disagree. More "Brain Stew," please….Bullet For My Valentine have started recording their next album in, of all places one might wish to record an album, Thailand. Nice choice! Sure beats Wales or LA!….Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo posted news on his Facebook telling fans he and guitarist Kerry "the" King have begun writing new material for their next record and in Dave’s words, "You’re going to soil your pants." Slayer will be hitting the studio soon and plan to record everything live and I think analog! See what Dave Grohl has started? IN other Slayer news, guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who was stricken with a rare skin eating virus from a spider bite over a year ago, is still on the mend with all indications he will be able to rejoin Slayer when they tour this summer on the Mayhem Tour with Slipknot! Can not wait for that!!!! Meanwhile, Dave Lombardo celebrates his 47th birthday today! And Ice-T turns 54. Body Count was da bomb, wasn’t it?
