Sebastian Bach Stops Show, Helps Injured Fan

Hat Tip to Blabbermouth on this one. Sebastian Bach got really riled at a fan for stealing a setlist... but then stopped his gig to help out an injured female fan. It seems like the guy rushing the stage probably pushed the female in some way or another. Here's the report:

"Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach stopped his band's June 10 concert in Seattle, Washington after a fan climbed up on stage and stole the group's setlist before jumping back into the crowd, in the process injuring a fellow patron. The incident in question, which was captured in the fan-filmed video below, occurred during Bach's performance of the song 'American Metalhead' from his 2007 album Angel Down. A man can be seen making his way onto the stage and grabbing a drink from the cabinet next to the drum riser before casually walking over to the front of the stage and removing the setlist which was taped to the monitor in front of Bach. A security guy is then seen grabbing the fan from behind and throwing him into the audience. Sebastian can then be heard speaking directly to the fan, saying: 'Are you fu--ing serious? You're an idiot!' He then addresses the club security, saying, 'Fu--ing call the cops on this fu--ing guy.' He went on to say: 'Stop the show. Why? Like, why? This chick is hurt. This chick is hurt.' Bach then proceeds to wait on stage while the injured fan is presumably being tended to by fellow concertgoers."


Here's video of what went down:




Phil Collen and Delta Deep Releases New Song 

Phil Collen of Def Leppard is gearing up for some busy times with his side project called Delta Deep. The blues band does originals and all sorts of cover songs from a wide variety of acts. Delta Deep will release its self-titled debut next week. To support that album, the band went ahead and released the track "Private Number." This is definitely something different and interesting from Collen.

'More Than Words' - Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black

Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black recreated the Extreme video for "More Than Words" for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. I've been on vacation for the last week and a half, so I didn't see this clip air originally... but I'm glad it was mentioned on Blabbermouth, because this is a hoot.


Motorhead's Motorboat: Slayer To Perform On Ship's Deck Stage Under A Blood Moon


Guests on the second annual Motörhead's Motörboat will experience once-in-a-lifetime events with two ultimate heavy metal icons.

On the first night of the cruise, one of the most heavy metal moments of all time will occur when headliners Slayer perform outside on the deck stage of Norwegian Sky under a red blood moon. September 28 at 10:47 PM Eastern Time marks the fourth and final lunar eclipse (sometimes referred to as a “blood moon”) of the current lunar tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses with six full moons in between). It is one of only eight tetrads during the 21st century. Some believe this occurrence is a fulfillment of the “Blood Moon Prophecy” and signals “The Rapture,” as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12. Few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, with songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, so the performance could not be more apt.

In the spirit of the evening, while waiting to see if the “end of the world” prophecy comes true, guests will celebrate “Blood Red Night” by donning something crimson, while enjoying Slayer’s intense performance during this rare astrological phenomenon.

Later in the week (Thursday, October 1), Motörboat guests will celebrate 40 years of the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time--along with the release of Motörhead’s 22nd studio album, Bad Magic (due out August 28 on UDR Music/Motörhead Music)--during Motörhead’s 40thAnniversary Bash. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guests will be invited to dress in their Motörhead best, or even as Lemmy, Phil orMikkey themselves, while enjoying cake, libations, and of course lots of heavy music in honor of the rock legends.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, "40 years of Motörhead will be celebrated aboard the Motörboat, so boys and girls, you know what THAT means, right? There won't be a dry throat in the house!”

Motörhead's Motörboat--fueled by Monster Energy--will embark on its second voyage from Port Miami September 28 on Norwegian Sky, with stops in Nassau and the private picturesque island of Great Stirrup Cay in The Bahamas before returning to Miami on October 2. to reserve a stateroom.

Additional performers have been added to the Motörhead's Motörboat lineup, which already features some of the greatest heavy rock bands in the world. New to the roster are Corrosion of Conformity (recently reunited with original vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan), The Shrine, Others, No Words (featuring guitar prodigy Nik Kai), Butterside, Sonia Harley, The Dead Deads, along with comedians Brian Posehn and Big Jay Oakerson, and late night comedy and band interviews with The S.D.R. Show (Sex, Drugs & Rock-n-Roll Show) with Big Jay Oakerson & Ralph Sutton.

The full lineup for Motörhead's Motörboat is as follows: Slayer, Motörhead, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Hatebreed, Exodus, Corrosion of Conformity, Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band, Crobot, Motor Sister, KYNG, Brian Posehn, Fireball Ministry, Huntress, Big Jay Oakerson, The Shrine, Others, No Words, Budderside, Sonia Harley, and The Dead Deads.

Motörhead's Motörboat offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share an experience with their favorite bands and to see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship and on the island of Great Stirrup Cay.

Norwegian Sky offers 13 complimentary and specialty dining options, 12 bars and lounges, a coffee bar, an outdoor pool, and five hot tubs. While onboard, guests can try their luck in the Sky Club Casino, relax in the onboard spa and get their heart pumping in the fitness center or full basketball court.

It's been a fun few days... and now we're at the end of our list. My favorite video from 1985 is, of course, "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue. Was there any doubt?
