Dirt - Tuesday, Jan 24

 The MASS CHAOS TOUR with Godsmack, Staind and Halestorm is posted in Road Rage. Good name and I like the play on the state of Massachusetts, where two of the bands are from. Sorta.  Godsmack mostly live in New Hampshire. LOL  Anyhow, I am looking forward to it.  Mike Mushok and Sully Erna will be in the hardDrive studios soon to talk about this outing and what's in store!….Pulse of Radio reports  Soundgarden's Big Day Out tour stop was interrupted by Kanye West's soundcheck, which was happening on another stage during their performance.  Apparently West arrived 45 minutes  late to the festival grounds and Soundgarden's set had already begun on a neighboring stage.  Needless to say, the audience wasn't happy,  nor was the band with Chris Cornell telling fans, "Sounds like there's children playing music there, retarded children, retarded as in held back.  There's no other word for it." Yikes….Also on Pulse of Radio, Nickelback has taken its share of abuse in recent months, but now the band — or at least a representative — is hitting back on Twitter. The group is taking the time to respond to every bad thing or joke said about them on the social networking site and to everyone who writes something nasty to their account. To one person who wrote he had "an aneurysm and violently s*** myself at the same time" upon hearing a Nickelback song, the band replied, "I bet it was the best day you've had in a while." When another young woman wrote, "Nickelback makes me want to chop my ears off," the band asked, "Did you do it yet?"  Check it out: https://twitter.com/#!/Nickelback (Rolling Stone)Slipknot will apparently headline this year's edition of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. Although the line-up won't be officially announced until tomorrow (Jan 25th), a representative for Ibanez guitars seemed to let the news slip while introducing a new line of signature Ibanez guitars for Slipknot axeman Mick Thomson at the recent NAMM.   Slipknot has confirmed it will tour the U.S. this summer,  but has not provided any further details. Watch the clip of the Ibanez rep giving away the news at http://tinyurl.com/88rykc8 (Blabbermouth)….Lacuna Coil's album, Dark Adrenaline, is amazing.  I will be interviewing Cristina and Andrea this morning in the hardDrive studios, so be listening for them on the air soon!   I love the album! It's in stores today! Later, taters.
