This is the trendy thing now among aging rockers: create your own brand of signature wine. Shoot, if I was famous, I'd create my own Glam wine too.
Guitarist Gus G of Ozzy Osbourne fame has a new album out called Brand New Revolution. The first single is of the same name. Gus recruited lots of different artists to help him out on this new solo effort. The singer on "Brand New Revolution" happens to be Jacob Bunton who we talked about yesterday regarding his work with Adler and Lynam. Jacob sings on a few of the album's tracks and he shares a writing credit on "Brand New Revolution." Good stuff - absolutely killer guitar solo!
Steven Adler's new band is simply called Adler and Jacob Bunton of Lynam is the lead singer. The band was on a Peruvian talk show of sorts recently to promote their music... and mid-interview, Jacob busted out the Guns n' Roses classic "Used to Love Her." Basically, the performance is awesome and authentic. Jacob is such a great talent, not only in singing and playing guitar, but also in song writing. I can't wait to see Adler live when I have the chance.
Steel Panther teamed up with Playboy to create a new video for the song "Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World." The song is from the album All You Can Eat. If you're watching at work or around your kids, it's okay because there is no nudity. The lyrics aren't so hot for either audience!
I love the guitar solo in this song. As for the video? Well, I've never seen a Glam band ride a giant dinosaur before!
A "source" has apparently confirmed that Bumblefoot is out of Guns n' Roses. Evidently this isn't a new development. The same confirmed source says the guitarist has been out of GnR for a long time now.
It was just earlier this week that guitarist DJ Ashba quit the band, too. Basically Axl's Roses is imploding again. So... now what? Original member reunion rumors? More replacement members? Silence for a decade?
Ronnie Younkins is sitting out some KIX live shows because he had a relapse and is now in rehab. When he gets a little better, Ronnie will join the band for weekend shows and go back to rehab.
