A music fan in England apparently committed suicide earlier this year because a show by the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures (featuring Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones) left him with such severe tinnitus — a constant ringing in the ears — that he couldn’t sleep for three months, a UK coroner’s investigation reported.

Hiring a clown for a university functions is a little absurd — unless the clown is Slipknot percussionist M Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan. The musician, who didn’t graduate from college but has stated in interviews that he got his bachelor’s, masters and doctorate degrees in the University of Rock ‘n’ Roll, will present a lecture called ‘On Living Your Dreams, Slipknot & Life’ this evening (Nov. 15) from 6-7 p.m. local time at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
As expected, Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil has pleaded guilty in Las Vegas Justice Court to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

In preparation of the holidays, the band recorded an EP of acoustic instrumental holiday classics called ‘Glorious Christmas Songs That Will Make Your Black Label Heart Feel Good,’ which is now available on iTunes and eOne Music.
We’re still a long ways away from a full-scale Guns N’ Roses reunion, since Slash would still rather stomp on the olive branch than hand it to frontman Axl Rose, but some factions of the Guns camp are making nice. Rose will be sharing stages in the near future with former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, revealed Rose in his interview with ‘That Metal Show’ set to air Nov. 11.
While some rockers including Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello support the Occupy Wall Street movement, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine considers the protest a sham and accuses President Barack Obama of contributing to the turmoil by being “the most divisive president we’ve ever had.”
