The Def Leppard cruise is officially happening. Dubbed Hysteria on the High Seas, the cruise is set for January 21-25, 2016. The cruise will be on the MSC Divina and will port from Miami, Fla. No pricing details yet. I'm already going to be on a trip during this time, or I would consider this. After all, Def Lep is my #2 band, right behind Aerosmith. Who is going?

Whitesnake will release The Purple Album May 19th via Frontiers. To help build excitement for that release, Frontiers has just put out an electronic press kit for the album, complete with song samples. One listen and you can tell this is going to be killer. Definitely something I'm looking forward to - a must buy.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, "And so the Motörboat sets sail one more time - better get your tickets now, or be left sobbing on the dock! Oh - and we promise not to run out of beer this time!"

Motörhead--the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time--are celebrating their 40th anniversary and recently returned to the studio to begin work on their 22nd studio album. The band’s song "Heartbreaker"--from their mammoth Aftershock album, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200--was nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category at this year's Grammy Awards. In 2005, Motörhead won the Grammy in the same category for the song “Whiplash.” Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead--Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell(guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)--has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none. www.imotorhead.com

Ridiculous Music News Of The Week

Posted on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments9 Comments

The Associated Press referred to Robert Durst as "The former Limp Bizkit frontman." I don't even know how this sort of journalistic mistake happens. Fred Durst fronted the Bizkit of course. In case you didn't know, multimillionaire Robert Durst was just arrested on murder charges for the 2000 death of his friend Susan Berman.

I mean, I'm no Limp Bizkit fan. But seriously. Did NO ONE at the AP think to just Google either the Robert Durst or the Limp Bizkit Wikipedia page in a half-assed attempt at cross-checking? Good grief.
