Dirt - Wednesday, Mar 21

 Let this place be the first place to announce the winner of our "Remember Everything Contest" with Five Finger Death Punch picking the winner  to be Katie Weber, a loyal hardDriveRadio listener in Madison, WI of 94-1 JJO.  Ivan Moody was on the hotLine with Lou Brutus on Monday night to share the news. There were nearly 500 entries and each one was heavier than the next.  Thanks for Five Finger Death Punch for giving us this opportunity.  Katie will be flown out to one of the band's summer shows (dates and line up to be announced later next month),  where she'll hang out with the band.  She'll also get an autographed guitar,  signed litho, signed cd and a 5FDP jersey.  There are 4 runner ups still to be announced who will receive the signed litho, CD and a jersey too.  Stay tuned for those names soon!….Hey, Black Keys fans!   Get me your questions for Dan Auerbach!  I need 'em by tomorrow by Noon eastern!  Email 'em via the email link on the homepage….My buddy Jonathan Davis of Korn was hanging with wounded warriors at a U.S. base in Germany recently.  He also got lessons on how to disarm a bomb.  Ah, that's my Jonny!  Ya know, before he was a rock star, he worked for the Bakersfield coroner's office. But secretly, he wanted to be an investigator.  If he didn't have this gig, that's what he's be doing. CSI…Here's the mind blower of the day!  David Draiman of Disturbed  tweeted he is working on a solo "industrial" music project.  He plans to make an official announcement on  "That Metal Show" on VH-1 on May 26.  Really???  I gotta find his cell number!  He's comparing it to nine inch nails and Ministry.  For the record, I wanna say, "that's crazy!"….Here's a wild combo for ya:  Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp covering Carly Simon's "You're So Vain."  It will be on Manson's forthcoming "Born Villain" due May 1st.  Now THAT'S CRAZY!….So picking up where the "Twilight" series left off is the new series "The Hunger Games."  Did you know Lenny Kravitz was cast as the stylist to the lead character Katris, played by "Winter's Bone" lead star Jennifer Lawrence. What a strange casting, if you ask me, but ok.  Movie opens Friday….Guess former GNR drummer Stephen Adler is pulling in all the big guitar slingers for his next project Adler.  Besides Slash on a couple of tunes, John 5 is on board for a song.  Should be interesting….I didn't realize it, but Killswitch Engage will play it's first shows with original singer Jesse Leach on Aug 11-12 at the Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O.  shows in Montreal and Toronto, respectively.  Look for a new KSe album later this year…..Was on the hotLine yesterday with Cavo's Casey Walker.  Nice guy.  Look for their "Thick as Thieves" cd out on Apr 10th. We'll have a "win it before it's out" and signed guitar to giveaway soon, so be sure to be a hardDriveRadio Radical so you can get in on the action! We've also got our 2012 Rock on the Range Free For All in the works and ready to launch in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned!
