Lemmy Stamps!

Only available in Germany, but oh so cool - Lemmy stamps! Can you imagine getting these from the U.S. postal service? I just can't see it, but man that would be badass. What a great honor and way to remember Lemmy and his musical contributions.

Motley Crue: 'The End' Coming To Theaters

From my email inbox:


(NEW YORK, NY, May 11, 2016) – On December 31, 2015, legendary rock icons Mötley Crüe completed their 35-year touring career as a band with a spectacular final concert at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, just 10 miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched. The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of such mega-hits as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls Girls Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.” While not everyone was able to see their Final Show live, Crüe fans can now catch all the action when Fathom Events, Live Alliance, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Tenth Street Entertainment present “Mötley Crüe: The End” in select U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time for only one night. In addition to the epic concert footage, cinema audiences will be treated to behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s last global tour.


Here's a trailer of the movie below. Surprisingly, this is actually playing in several theaters around me.

Gene Simmons Disses Prince, Internet Freaks Out

So this happened. Gene Simmons made some nasty comments about Prince, basically blaming the singer's death on drugs. This comes just days after Gene gushed over how wonderful and iconic Prince was to music - and the world.


Gene gave an interview to Newsweek. The money quote from the interview is this:


"I think Prince was heads, hands and feet above all the rest of them. I thought he left [Michael] Jackson in the dust. Prince was way beyond that. But how pathetic that he killed himself. Don’t kid yourself, that’s what he did. Slowly, I’ll grant you... but that’s what drugs and alcohol is: a slow death.”


Now, I'm pretty anti-drug myself. So I don't totally disagree with what Gene is saying here. But I think this is an issue of class. You don't start trashing the dead before the body is even cold, you know? Of course, Gene was trending for hours yesterday after these comments hit the Internet.



As you can imagine, people were not happy. Here's some random Twitter reaction:





And by nightfall, Paul Stanley inevitably apologized for Gene. Yes, full circle.



Update at 9:03 a.m. May 11 - Gene has apologized for his remarks!

Mike Tramp Releases New Video

Mike Tramp has just released a video for his song "Stay" which is from the 2015 album Nomad. The song is nice, catchy even... but it reminds me of R.E.M. or something like that. It's not really glam per se. Not country. Not alternative. But it's good, so I guess that's all that matters. Good for Mike for making new music!

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne Split (Sort Of)

This one kind of shocks me. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are splitting up. They've been married 33 years... and through a ton of crap together. Apparently Ozzy was having an affair and Sharon wasn't having it, so he moved out.

Knowing those too and their crazy history together, I'm sure they'll work things out. The big impact this might have is on Ozzy's sobriety. I hope he's able to stay clean and make some new music.
