Metallica Debut New Song "Cyanide"

METALLICA premiered a brand new song called "Cyanide" during the band's co-headlining set at the one-day Ozzfest last night (Saturday, August 9) at Pizza Hut Park in Dallas. The track is the first taste of METALLICA's forthcoming album, "Death Magnetic" to be aired in a live setting. The official video footage of the song can be viewed below.

METALLICA's Ozzfest 2008 setlist:

01. Creeping Death
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls
03. Ride The Lightning
04. Harvester Of Sorrow
05. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
06. Cyanide (new song)
07. ...And Justice For All
08. No Remorse
09. Fade To Black
10. Master Of Puppets
11. Damage Inc.
12. Nothing Else Matters
13. Sad But True
14. One
15. Enter Sandman
- - - - -
16. (MERCYFUL FATE medley feat. King Diamond)
17. Seek And Destroy

METALLICA has officially set Friday, September 12 as the "worldwide" release date for "Death Magnetic". The CD will be available to download for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on the same day the album arrives in stores.

The band is offering the record for sale in numerous configurations, ranging from a digital-only release to a deluxe "coffin box" that will come with a bonus CD, a DVD, a T-shirt, guitar picks and other goodies.

Although Dallas was the only Ozzfest date scheduled for this year, METALLICA's name has come up a lot in recent years as a possible headliner or co-headliner. Drummer Lars Ulrich told The Pulse of Radio he was happy that METALLICA was finally doing it. "I don't think we've ever been invited before," he said. "You know, I've gone to a couple of Ozzfests. I think it's been awesome. I mean, it's such a great institution and it's done so much for metal in America. Ozzy and Sharon gave us our first big break in America in 1986. I will always respect that. They've been great to us. So it's cool. I'm psyched. Should be good fun."

METALLICA toured as an opening act for Ozzy in 1986 while supporting its breakthrough album, "Master of Puppets".

Ozzfest began in 1996 as a single show held in Los Angeles, but expanded to a full summer tour for the past 11 years, including last year's "free" event. Both Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have indicated that it will be a full-blown tour again next year.

Appetite For Vinyl

Universal Music will re-release GUNS N' ROSES' classic debut album "Appetite For Destruction" on vinyl. The LP is due on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 and the cover features the controversial original artwork by Robert Williams.

Go to CD Universe to place your order today and be one of the first to receive this product when it arrives.

Product Description: Already a legend in its own meagre lifetime, this startling debut shrouded itself in controversy, from its original Robert Williams artwork to Axl Rose's unblinking accounts of L.A.'s underbelly. This mawkish storytelling, combined with a brattish collective swagger and a surprisingly mature approach to their songs, guaranteed GUNS N' ROSES a speedy notoriety that was to serve their legend brilliantly. From the laconic "Paradise City" to the achingly beautiful "Sweet Child O' Mine", or the furious "Welcome To The Jungle", the record brims with a brutal integrity. An album they could never surpass even if they had stayed together.

120-gram vinyl LP pressing of their genre-defining debut full-length album, originally released in 1987. The LP cover features the controversial original artwork. **Please note that this vinyl pressing features "For Promotional Use Only" printed on the artwork. 2007

German edition in its original sleeve design.

Recorded at Rumbo Studios, Canoga Park, California; Take One Studio, Burbank, California; Can Am Studio, Tarzana, California.

Deluxe Edition Of Paranoid

The Pulse of Radio reports that BLACK SABBATH's 1970 second album, "Paranoid", will be reissued on September 29 as both a double-vinyl set and a deluxe three-CD package, according to a press release. The record, which was recorded in eight days, is SABBATH's best-selling effort and was their commercial breakthrough in the U.S. Containing some of the band's biggest songs, such as "Iron Man", "War Pigs" and the title track, "Paranoid"is considered one of heavy metal's most influential and all-time masterpieces. The CD set will contain the original album on one disc and a 1974 quadraphonic mix on the second, while a third CD will feature never-before-released early instrumental versions of six of the album's eight songs and two with alternate lyrics.

"Paranoid" has sold four million copies in the U.S. and was SABBATH's only album to ever reach No. 1 in their native country, the U.K.

"Paranoid" was followed by 1971's "Master of Reality", also considered by many fans to be one of the group's finest efforts.

At their long-overdue induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, guitarist Tony Iommi and singer Ozzy Osbourne talked about the respect that BLACK SABBATH has earned in the music industry.

Iommi: "I think it's great. I think it's taken a few years, mind (you), because I think for a while, nobody took us seriously. But, you know, our friends in the music business and that obviously did. As we went on, the more we carried on, the more we proved, the more we stayed there, you know? And I think we got the respect from that."

Osbourne: "I never thought anybody liked us, and people on the Ozzfest would come to me and go, 'You were really one of our inspirations.'And I didn't really, I didn't believe it, you know?"

The original lineup of BLACK SABBATH has reunited several times in the last decade to either headline its own tour or Ozzfest, but there are no plans at the moment for the band to either record or tour.

Metal Masters Talk Touring

Revolver magazine has posted short interview clips with the bands taking part in this summer's Metal Masters TourJUDAS PRIEST, HEAVEN AND HELL and MOTÖRHEAD — filmed during the photo shoot for the cover of the publication's latest issue. Watch the footage below.

The Metal Masters Tour launches tonight (Wednesday, August 6) in Philadelphia. Opening the show every night is the veteran San Francisco Bay Area thrash band TESTAMENT.

Are You Experienced?

Experience Hendrix is the continuing concert phenomenon that brings together contemporary guitar greats to celebrate the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix. It is also the title of the first-ever DVD release that chronicles blazing concert performances by top name artists in tribute to Jimi Hendrix. "Experience Hendrix", released through Image Entertainment this month, features highlights of two star-studded concerts featuring such notables as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, DOUBLE TROUBLE, LIVING COLOR, PEARL JAM's Mike McCready, Indigenous, Robert Randolph, Mick Taylor, Kenny Olson of Kid Rock's band, Hubert Sumlin, BAD COMPANY's Paul Rodgers, Buddy Guy, Mitch Mitchell, Buddy Miles, Billy Cox and others.

Fourteen of the performances seen in "Experience Hendrix" were filmed at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown. Three bonus songs were filmed at San Diego's annual Street Scene.

The connection between the participating artists and the legacy of Jimi Hendrix is undeniably direct. According to Kenny Wayne Shepherd, "Without the music of Jimi Hendrix
, I might never have been so inspired to explore the music possibilities and push the envelope of the guitar."

Billy Cox, the bassist who met Jimi Hendrix in the U.S. Army and performed and recorded with Hendrix with both the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and THE BAND OF GYPSYS, stated, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now as it was in the past. The Experience Hendrix shows illustrate just you how timeless this music really is."

The Experience Hendrix cast includes musicians who performed or recorded with Hendrix during his lifetime including the aforementioned Cox as well as original JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE drummer Mitch Mitchell and the late Buddy Miles who was, with Cox, the rhythm section of THE BAND OF GYPSYS.

Produced by Janie Hendrix and John McDermott for Experience Hendrix, LLC, the family-run company charged with preserving the legacy of Jimi Hendrix, the DVD was mixed by Eddie Kramer. Kramer, one of history's most lauded recording engineers was a long-time associate of Jimi Hendrix's who worked on every one of his albums from "Are You Experienced?" onward as well as numerous live recordings, including Woodstock. Kramer mixed portions of the "Experience Hendrix" DVD at Electric Lady Studios, the Greenwich Village recording studio he helped construct for Hendrix in 1969.

Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, LLC commented, "Every day, we see how Jimi's musical legacy continues to transcend generational and cultural boundaries. This DVD release reflects the genius of his unifying spirit."

Hey JayDee.  Just FYI, if you read my story on the Sinful thread I mentioned that we had dinner in the HR cafe and they had did have some Judas Priest stuff.  I will be posting pictures later including what was in the HR.  I'm sure they just put them up because they were playing but I've been there before and I've never seen any Priest stuff.

I've been to many HR Cafes around the world collecting guitar pins. What I found ironic about the whole Hard Rock Cafe thing is I've never seen a single piece of Judas Priest memorbilia in any of them! No pictures, guitars, gold/platinum records nothing!  Maybe NY HR is different but I will tell all of you as a whole, JP, the greatest heavy metal band of all time has been left 'out in the cold', pun intended when it comes to the HR Cafe.

Interesting note: There's a HR Cafe in Tijuana, Mexico and no music ever came out of Tj. However Seattle, WA. my city and host to- peal jam, nirvana,queensryche, hendrix, hart, soundgarden, alice n chains...etc..... has no HR Cafe.......WTF?    go figure!

Here is a recap from Eddie Trunk about his 25th Anniversary show this past Monday Night at the Hard Rock Cafe which I had the pleasure of attending!

What a night, a recap of the 25th Anniversary event.

8/5/08: Wow, where to begin? Last night really was one of the most special nights of my professional life. After a couple months of anticipation, the 25th Anniversary event is in the books, and what a night it was. Never in a million years could I ever have imagined a day would come that Judas Priest would be playing a private show for me, and that's exactly what has happened. The day started for me with a limo ride into NYC. With me in the car were my Mom and Dad and my good friend Mike Piazza. As we came through Times Square I saw the marquee of the Hard Rock with my name and a congratulations message and it really hit that this was actually happening. Amazing feeling. We entered the back of the Hard Rock where I had a quick look at Priest's stage set up before doors open. Johnny then took me to the red carpet reception area where there was a huge banner with my logo on it. Once the doors opened it was all a blur. Fans, friends and artists came streaming in and I had a chance to greet many of them. It was a scene I could have never imagined as about 20 photographers snapped away at me and my guests that walked the red carpet. Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson handled video interviews with many of the artists as well. Everything, including Priest's set, was filmed professionally with a 4 camera shoot. After about an hour reception out front I was taken to the backstage area where the surprise of the night took place. Many of my close friends in the world of comedy were standing there, as was Piazza, so I knew something was up! When Don, Jim, Craig Gass, Jim Breuer, Billy Mira and Jim Norton are in a group you know things are about to get stupid! I was standing backstage so I really could not hear or see what they all did, but I'm sure it was funny. Then Piazza came out and introed me to the crowd after saying a few words. Then the surprise; a huge video screen comes down and what was essentially an Eddie Trunk roast took place! An entire video tribute was put together by my good friend Erik Luftglass over the last few months and I had no idea! This video will be posted on this site soon, so you can all see it. It featured Chris Jericho, Don & Jim, UFO, Tesla, Ratt, Sabbath, Dio, Kip Winger, Trixter, David Ellefson, Judas Priest, Triumph, Anthrax, Twisted Sister, Bret Michaels, Queensryche, Dream Theater and many others first taking shots at me in a roast style, then all saying some really amazing things about how they feel about me and congratulating me on the 25 years. Just awesome and I will keep this video as a great memory for life. I can not thank Erik enough for spending hours getting these interviews and putting it all together. It was an awesome surprise and there were also some Happy Birthday wishes thrown in (mine is 8/8). JJ and Eddie from Twisted Sister gave me a gift of a guitar signed by the entire band, and the Hard Rock gave me a guitar and amp signed by everyone at the event. After the video I took some time to say a few words to the crowd and thank some of the people who have supported me over the last 25 years. Then the main event, Judas Priest on stage in a club in front of 600 people! The stage was cleared and Priest took over and crushed! AMAZING seeing this band in this setting. Even more interesting was to see the guys perform out of stage clothes, in jeans and T shirts, really cool to see them loose and having fun. The guys would tell me later they had a great time being that close to a crowd and there was great energy on stage and in the audience. Priest played for about 45 minutes and did a set with an equal balance of album cuts and hits. I had no idea what they were going to play and didn't want to know in advance. They opened with "Electric Eye" into "Metal Gods". How can you top that!?!? Then "Devils Child", INSANE! From there it was "Breaking The Law", "Hell Patrol", "Green Manalishi" and "Another Thing Coming". The band was called back out for an encore and slammed into "Hell Bent For Leather". Halford thanked me several times during the set and called me up to the stage just before the last song of the regular set "Another Thing Coming". There I was standing on stage with Priest, unreal. Halford gave me the mic and had me trade off his signature audience call and response before the song. Then Glen Tipton came over and offered me his guitar in a gesture to play with them! I had to decline since I don't know how to play a note, but damn I wish I did!!! Between the guitars as gifts and the chance to jam with Priest, it might be time to take lessons. The band just killed. They played great and Rob sang unreal hitting every high note. If you were lucky enough to be there you saw something really special. Legends in a club setting at a private show. After the show I once again thanked the band and fans and did my best to make the rounds and see some friends. The whole thing almost felt like a wedding for me in that there is all this build up, and then it went by in a flash and there were so many people you wanted to talk to but missed. After the show I hung out with Priest and many guests backstage. The band could not have been cooler and the vibes were great all around. One funny moment nobody knows about is that my good friend Ace Frehley was there, but missed everything! I had called Ace several times warning him not to be late. He walked in around 10PM and saw me on stage and walked right backstage thinking I was bringing Priest on. As I walked off from thanking everyone Ace was standing at the bottom of the stage stairs, said hi, and asked when Priest was starting. He thought I was bringing them on and he was bummed when I explained the night had ended and he missed them. He did hang for a bit backstage then split. Classic Ace! I thank him still for showing up and lending his support, but he missed everything. Off the top of my head here are a few of the artists that joined me in my celebration. I'm sure I'm forgetting some and much more will come to me, but in the house from what I can remember were; Mike Piazza, Ace Frehley, Don Jamieson, Craig Gass, Jim Norton, Jim Breuer, Jim Florentine, Richard Christy, Bumblefoot, Mike Portnoy, Scott Rockenfield, Geoff Tate, Glenn Hughes, Tony Iommi, Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler, Vinnie Appice, Carmine Appice, David Ellefson, Gilby Clarke, Frank Bello, Dan Nelson, Russell Allen, Vito Bratta, Jesse Malin, Danny Sage, Johnny Kelly, Bobby Blitz Ellsworth, Kenny Dubman, Scott Metaxes, Russell Arcara and I'm sure others I am forgetting that will come to me. I didn't even get to see everyone, but most I had a quick hello with, it was pretty crazy. It was so great to have so many of my close friends there. A TON of photos, video and more are all coming exclusively to this site. Keep checking back as stuff will start being added daily. My SINCERE thanks to John Pasquale, Dave Miller and everyone at the Hard Rock Cafe NYC. Great people, great venue and I can't thank them enough for providing me a perfect place to do great events in the heart of the greatest city in the world! Thanks to Erik Luftglass, so much support and the video was incredible. Erik and I have worked together on various levels over the years and he always is in my corner. He now works for my website and is a big reason for the upgrades among other things. Speaking of the site, thanks to Rich and Keith and all at PAID. Thank you JUDAS PRIEST! I will forever be in their debt for what they have done for me. To have a band of this stature offer to do this for free, with no ego or bullshit, and to acknowledge what I have done like they did is amazing. Thank you Glen, KK, Rob, Scott and Ian. Also thanks to Jayne Andrews and Priest management for making this a reality. Thanks to our sponsor Legends Harley in Ledgewood NJ. None of this could have happened without the people I just mentioned. Also thank to Punctual Pickups for providing first class transportation. If your looking for great car service at a great price, and a company that gets the rock and roll lifestyle, call them at 201-569-6376. I also want to thank all the PR firms that helped including Coyne PR, Kayos Productiosn, Adrenaline PR, and Chipster PR. A sincere thanks to all the program directors who believed in what I do and have kept me on air for 25 years. Special thanks to Bob Buchmann at my current NYC home Q104.3. Bob rescued my show in NYC back in 2002 and put it on Q where it still lives. Bob is leaving the station and I wish him well and thank him for truly getting what I'm about and letting me be me. Thanks to all the amazing artists over the years, many who have become great friends. Its a two way street, they support me, I support them, and when it works like that its awesome and I appreciate it. Also thanks to VH1, VH1 Classic and MSG Network. I appreciate all that have given me opportunities in TV. Great to be a part of MSG Network and great to be coming back to VH1 Classic. Also thanks to my family. My wife who deals with all the crazy stuff in my schedule and life with no drama, and my parents who took me to my first Priest show and were both at the event Monday. Kind of sureal to see my Mom and Dad rocking to Priest, and then to see them in the bands dressing room after the show before I even got there talking to the guys! Also thanks to Chris, Michelle and Cathy at The Aquarian for the awesome cover story which you can link to from my home page. My current assistants on the radio shows Andrew Ramsingh and Holly Lucian, and all that were there before them. Also thanks to Dana Rosen and all that contribute to make this site what it is. Most of all thanks to YOU! I would be NOTHING without the amazing support of my audience. I thank you all greatly. So much more to talk abouit, so much video and photos coming. We will also cover everything on air this weekend on the radio. I'll also see you at PNC and Jones Beach this weekend for the full Metal Masters Tour. After the little taste of Priest last night, can not wait for the full assault! Thanks to all for an amazing night. Everyone that was there has been raving about how special it was. I hope I can do it another 25!

Trunk broadcasts his weekly radio shows, "Friday Night Rocks" on Q104.3 in the New York City listening area and "Eddie Trunk Live" on XM Radio (satellite radio).

Eddie said, "I've had the privilege of meeting and/or interviewing most of the top metal and hard rock artists at various points in my career and sharing their stories and music with millions of fans on air through TV and radio. To have an iconic band like JUDAS PRIEST, who helped invent the genre and are true legends, play a private show to celebrate my contributions and support is humbling, to say the least! It would be tough to find another band that defines metal like PRIEST, so this is an honor beyond belief and one I can truly say I would have never dreamed of as a kid!"

Vinny Appice Interview

Marko Syrjälä of recently conducted an interview with drummer Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN AND HELL, DERRINGER). An excerpt from the chat follows: At the beginning of the last tour you were playing for about two hours, but as the tour progressed you dropped a couple of songs cutting the set down somewhat. What was the reason for that?

Vinny: Yeah, we started with a long set and then we just cut it because at a couple of shows we had to play less time and then we pulled the songs out and everybody went, "Let's just play that." But then that got longer because we started jamming, so what went from... we played for two hours, down to an hour and forty-five minutes, then it went back up to almost two hours, because on "Heaven And Hell" we started jamming shit, which was good because we were enjoying it so much. We just started jamming and improvising, so that's a good thing. Can you tell us what stage the new HEAVEN AND HELL studio album is at right now?

Vinny: Right now we have six songs... about six songs written. They're just demos and they sound fucking awesome! Heavy, great... sounds like really cool SABBATH! These six new songs that you've got at this point, how would you compare them to the three new tracks ("The Devil Cried", "Shadow of the Wind" and "Ear in the Wall") that were recorded for the BLACK SABBATH ("The Dio Years") compilation that brought about this whole reunion in the first place?

Vinny: Well, the [new stuff on the] compilation was just written by Tony [Iommi] and Ronnie [James Dio]... and it was done quickly, the first time they got together. We now have a whole tour of playing together behind us, so now we got together and Tony and Ronnie wrote a lot of stuff and then there's a lot of stuff with Geezer. Then we got together... we haven't played together, they write it on the computer and then I put drums on it. So, it's a lot more relaxed since we've played together so long, it's a lot tighter and a lot more focused. That sounds very promising. So, this time around all of the members are participating in the writing process?

Vinny: Yeah... it seems to work best if Tony and Ronnie sit there and start the things and then... sometimes [together] with Geezer too or sometimes Geezer will come in and put his thing in there [later], you know. But mainly the two or three of them [write the material]. And then we'll get together in a room when we've got a couple more songs and play them and then we'll go in the studio and record them.

Big Name Singer For Velvet Revolver?

VELVET REVOLVER has been looking for a new frontman since dismissing Scott Weiland back in April. Rumored candidates have included ex-SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach, former MTV VJ Steve Isaacs (THE PANIC CHANNEL) and ex-SPACEHOG vocalist Royston Langdon, who has apparently had several successful rehearsal sessions with the band.

Speaking to the Artisan News Service on July 23, 2008 at a fashion event in Los Angeles, VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum stated about the group's lead singer search, "We got a call from a pretty big guy who wants to be our singer. I can't say who that is yet but talks are happening about it and hopefully we'll see what happens in the next couple of months."

Asked about the possibility of Sebastian Bach joining VELVET REVOLVER, Sorum said, "No. No, it's a lot cooler than that but I don't know if it's going to happen so I can't say. It's cool that people are calling us and wanting to get in the band, so that's exciting."

Langdon performed last month with VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash at a charity event in Las Vegas.

Langdon's previous band, SPACEHOG, released three albums before breaking up in 2002. Their gold-selling 1995 debut, "Resident Alien", featured the hit "In The Meantime".

Weiland reunited with his previous act, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, and is currently on the road with them. 

Scorpions Guitarist Interview

Shelly Harris of KNAC.COM recently conducted an interview with SCORPIONS guitarist Matthias Jabs. An excerpt from the chat follows.

KNAC.COM: I've heard that you've done it in the past, but on the world tour this year you are letting the fans in the different countries vote on the set list, which means you have to quickly get ready to play different songs for each country's leg of the tour. Do you already know which songs you'll be playing on this American leg?

Jabs: "I've seen the final result of the vote for the U.S. [the web site vote ended on Sunday, July 27], and we always sit together the day of the show, in the afternoon, because we need to let the lighting designer know — you have to program the desk for the order of the songs — so the crew needs to be informed exactly, but we are much more flexible. And we have a different situation in the first three shows, because we are playing with Sammy Hagar as a package, and that means in California, because of the strict curfews, and the situation — there are three bands I think — we don't play as long as we normally do. In Europe we play like two hours and twenty, and here it's just like 90 minutes, so that automatically changes the set, because we have to leave quite a few songs out. So, we will talk about the setlist when we all meet [before the first show] in a few days."

KNAC.COM: So, even though SCORPIONS obviously have a very long and extensive song list — at least a hundred — it's like you're ready to wing it and play whatever you have to play, really?

Jabs: "Yes, yes — there's not one song that we don't know. Some of them, like #89, those songs are not so popular, and with us they're not so popular either. (laughs) And therefore we haven't played those, and if we don't have to play them, we won't, but everything in the top 50 we know right away. Also, we keep changing the set around. You can imagine the votes, the results in Russia, are totally different from the ones in the U.S., or in Spain, they vote for different songs than in England or Japan."

KNAC.COM: I know your most recent album, "Humanity - Hour One", came out last year, and will you also be playing some of those songs?

Jabs: "A few but not too many — it has to be the right proportion. People don't like it if you play too many new songs, but we play three or maybe four. They [Americans] want to hear the back catalogue — the 'Rock You Like A Hurricane', 'No One Like You', 'Holiday', 'The Zoo' and all that, and once you do that, the first hour is gone!"

Scott Weiland Being A Complete Douche Bag.... Again.

Jim Louvau of The Arizona Republic reviewed STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' July 29, 2008 concert at the the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. An excerpt from his review follows.

"As lights went out and [Scott] Weiland [vocals] appeared in front of his microphone stand muttering something about VELVET REVOLVER and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS before the rest of the band had even made their way on stage. Part of the beauty of attending a Weiland event is that you never know exactly what version of the singer is going to show up and the singer's erratic behavior set the tone early on for what would be a rough night for the '90s alt-heroes.

"The lengthy set opened with 'Big Empty' from 'The Crow' soundtrack. Dressed in a grey suit Weiland stumbled around the stage and fell into drummer Eric Kretz's drum kit which confirmed he is now officially the Amy Winehouse of rock 'n' roll. When he did sing he often forgot words or changed them. 'Conversations Kill' quickly became 'Masturbation Kill'.

"The singer's incoherent rants in between songs were cut off by his band members starting the next song to stop the bleeding. Guitarist Dean DeLeo and his brother bassist Robert DeLeo looked humiliated as they ripped through classics like 'Wicked Garden', 'Big Bang Baby' and 'Vasoline'."

Read the entire review from The Arizona Republic.

Death Magnetic Release Date Announced

METALLICA has officially set Friday, September 12 as the "worldwide" release date for its new album, "Death Magnetic". Although the band has yet to announce separate release dates for the different parts of the world (since albums are virtually never released on the same day "worldwide"), the September 12 date in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (where albums are traditionally issued on Fridays) would indicate that the album would arrive in the U.S. on Tuesday, September 16, with most of continental Europe getting the CD one day earlier on September 15.

Tuesdays are when almost all CDs are issued in the U.S.

Mini Hendrix?

James Hetfield's 45!

The Pulse of Radio reports: METALLICA frontman James Hetfield turns 45 on Sunday (August 3). One of the most influential figures in hard rock and heavy metal of the past 25 years, Hetfield was born in Los Angeles, California to parents who were devout Christian Scientists. A strict religious upbringing, which included seeing his mother die of cancer because their religion forbade medical treatment, fueled the lyrics of many METALLICA songs, including "Until It Sleeps", "The God That Failed" and "Fade to Black".

Hetfield learned to play piano and drums before picking up a guitar at the age of 14. His early bands during his high school years included OBSESSION, PHANTOM LORD and LEATHER CHARM. When LEATHER CHARM's drummer left, an ad that Hetfield placed in a local paper for a new drummer led him to meet Danish-born Lars Ulrich. The pair formed METALLICA in 1981 and remain its two original members. The group has since become one of the biggest rock bands in history, selling 57 million records in the U.S. and 100 million worldwide.

Hetfield struggled for years with addictions to alcohol and drugs, finally entering rehab in 2001 during the turbulent sessions for the band's "St. Anger" album. He emerged clean and sober and remains so to this day.

While doing press for the 2004 documentary "Some Kind of Monster", which chronicled the events surrounding "St. Anger", Hetfield admitted that he used to drink to maintain his public image. "There's no doubt that I played into the image that was portrayed in the press, portrayed in people's description of why they liked METALLICA," he said. "I didn't want to disappoint. I wanted to be that guy. I wanted to put that mask on, and then keeping the mask on 24 hours became suffocating, and I could not do it anymore."

Hetfield has been married to Francesca since 1997. They have three children, Cali, Castor and Marcella.

His hobbies include skateboarding, hunting, water sports, snowboarding, collecting guitars and customizing classic automobiles.

Hetfield has listed some of his main musical influences as BLACK SABBATH, THIN LIZZY, AEROSMITH, MOTÖRHEAD, QUEEN and LED ZEPPELIN.

METALLICA's ninth studio effort, "Death Magnetic", is due out in September.

Turkey's leading 24-hour news channel NTV aired a lengthy report on METALLICA's July 27, 2008 appearance at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium in Istanbul. The report — which includes an interview with James Hetfield about the group's forthcoming album "Death Magnetic" and the "Some Kind of Monster" movie — can be viewed below.

Three Anthrax Home Videos Get A DVD Upgrade

Three ANTHRAX VHS home videos will finally be released on DVD for the first time on September 2 via MVD Entertainment Group/Cherry Red. A description of each title follows:

[***UPDATE***: ANTHRAX's manager, Izvor Zivkovic of Split Media, has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the upcoming DVD releases: "As of right now, these releases are not sanctioned by ANTHRAX or its management as no one has approached us about them. We are contacting the label to find out more."]

"Through Time P.O.V." (details):

This DVD encapsulates the growth through years of a band that were always FANS of the music they have played. Through both the live and interview footage, most of which you've never seen before, (unless you were there!), it's evident that through time, ANTHRAX has held true to what they believe in — THE MUSIC. This also features six of the band's 10 UK hit singles. It's a rare archive for ANTHRAX fans everywhere!

"Oidivnikufesin N.F.V." (details):

This DVD contains a full show from rock legends ANTHRAX, recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon during their UK tour of 1987. This footage is from a 1988 VHS release — never released before on DVD. As one of the most popular bands of the 1980s thrash metal scene, ANTHRAX are notable for combining metal with rap and hardcore music early on. They have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and are classified as one of the 'big four' of thrash metal alongside METALLICA, MEGADETH and SLAYER. Both the band and individual members have made many, many TV appearances across famous U.S. shows and in the UK they became well known partly for this legendary concert.

"Live Noize" (details):

After ten years of playing the globe and millions of records sold New York's premier metal band ANTHRAX united with rappers PUBLIC ENEMY for the first tour of its kind. Through this tour ANTHRAX broke down barriers which other acts wouldn't even undertake. It was the most exciting tour of their career, and this video is a documentation of just that. In the summer of 1991, ANTHRAX made musical history by collaborating with PUBLIC ENEMY on one of the most renowned singles of recent times. "Bring The Noise" captured rap, alternative and heavy metal radio. The success of that single prompted these two bands to become co-headliners in the "Bring The Noise" tour. The result was a groundbreaking bill that bought together diverse fans from different musical backgrounds. Filmed at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Southern California, "Live Noise" captures ANTHRAX's performance during that tour. The show incorporates approximately one hour of live performance with back stage footage that includes PUBLIC ENEMY. The encore is an extended rockin' version of "Bring The Noise", metal and rap at last fusing into a seamless whole. Includes band interviews covering the early years of ANTHRAX.

Ratt Guitarist Quits, Quiet Riot Replacement?
According to Metal Sludge, John Corabi (former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer) has quit his gig as the rhythm guitarist in RATT and is rumored to have been replaced by former QUIET RIOT guitarist Carlos Cavazo.

XM's Boneyard host Eddie Trunk, who has a long-running radio show, "Friday Night Rocks", on New York's Q104.3 FM, conducted an interview with RATT singer Stephen Pearcy on July 9, 2008 after the band's performance at this year's Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma. Trunk also spoke briefly with Pearcy and guitarist Warren DeMartini before the concert about how the reunion shows have gone so far and the band's future plans. Watch the two clips below.

RATT celebrated the "Year Of The Ratt" with a very special West Coast U.S. run of dates in April. In honor of their Southern California roots, the band embarked on a four-show mini-tour to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the "Ratt" EP.

RATT recently performed the entire EP along with other RATT faves live on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" to an overwhelming response. Host Bob Coburn expressed that he was "totally blown away" by RATT and that they "flat-out kicked ass" as they delivered one of the best shows in the 27 years of "Rockline".

RATT returned to stores with new DVD and CD releases on July 31, 2007: the first-ever DVD release from the band, "Ratt: Videos From The Cellar: The Atlantic Years", and the audio collection "Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt", which features the hard rockers at their studio and live performance peak and includes a previously unreleased track.

Motley Crue Partner With Guitar Center

Continuing its commitment to the support of aspiring artists, Guitar Center and MÖTLEY CRÜE announced today the launch of "Guitar Center On-Stage" — Your Chance To Make Rock History. "Guitar Center On-Stage" and the world's most notorious rock band will provide one up-and-coming band the ultimate, career-altering opportunity — the chance to open on tour for rock icons, MÖTLEY CRÜE. Starting today, through September 21 2008, bands across the United States are invited to submit their music at for a chance to win a prize package that includes an opening slot on MÖTLEY CRÜE's 2009 U.S. tour (dates to be announced at a later date), $25,000 cash, $20,000 in exclusive new gear from Gibson Guitar, management from Tenth St. Entertainment, and a recording deal from Eleven Seven Music, MÖTLEY's management and record label.

Guitar Center has engaged FameCast to power the submission site for "Guitar Center On-Stage," using FameCasts proprietary contest management platform to collect and present each band's submissions and rank them using a variety of metrics such as online fan voting and community engagement. A judging panel including Tenth St. Entertainment and Eleven Seven Records will then review the top bands, selecting 30 bands to advance to regional evaluation events held in mid-October at Guitar Center locations in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. After narrowing the list to the top six bands at the regional events, Guitar Center will host a final round of evaluation on November 12, 2008 at Guitar Center Hollywood, where each of the six bands will perform live for members of MÖTLEY CRÜE. One band will be notified via a personal phone call from a member of MÖTLEY CRÜE that they have been chosen as the winner and that the grand prize, which will include going on tour with MÖTLEY CRÜE, is theirs.

Also on hand at the press announcement at Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood was Chris Taylor Brown, lead vocalist from TRAPT who are currently touring on Crüe Fest. "It is an incredible opportunity to be on the road with one of rock's greatest bands. TRAPT has sold more than two million albums, we have four hit singles, a new album out on Tuesday (August 5) and it's still an honor as well as an enormous boost to our audience to be on the bill with MÖTLEY CRÜE." Guitar Center spends millions every year behind programs that help our customers realize their musical dreams.

"'Guitar Center On-Stage' is our most audacious and ambitious program yet. We are offering nothing short of a chance for greatness. A way to step out of the shadows of obscurity and into the light of legends," said Norman Hajjar, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer for Guitar Center.

Allen Kovac, CEO and Founder of Tenth Street Entertainment and Eleven Seven Music said, "Tenth Street Entertainment has historically achieved success with unique and robust strategic marketing initiatives for its clients. In just 24 short months, Eleven Seven Music has become the #1 Independent Active Rock record company with five percent of the market share at rock radio. Aligned with the advertising, brand recognition and credibility Guitar Center is providing, Tenth Street and Eleven Seven are excited to give an up-and-coming rock band the best possible support to jump start a long and successful career in the music and entertainment businesses."

MÖTLEY CRÜE's Mick Mars notes, "Our partnership with Guitar Center gives us the opportunity to help an up-and-coming band by giving them every element needed to succeed. Like Ozzy did for us when he took an unknown band called MÖTLEY CRÜE on the road, we too are looking for the next generation's great rock band."

Press Conference Master of Ceremonies Jim Richards, Program Director of San Diego's 101 KGB FM says, "MÖTLEY CRÜE has remained one of the most relevant bands of their era. Their single 'Saints Of Los Angeles' is currently Top 10 at Active Rock and Top 5 at Mainstream Rock and played alongside bands like DISTURBED, LINKING PARK and AVENGED SEVENFOLD. None of their contemporaries have experienced this kind of staying power. This program is a dream come true for any young musician."

"Gibson Guitar has always supported bands on every level and as a music innovator we work hard to support emerging bands by giving them opportunities for success through our many resources," said Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar. "This program will launch the next MÖTLEY CRÜE and we are proud to partner with our friends at Guitar Center for such an exciting promotion."

Sharon Osbourne Interview

Parade magazine has published a brand new interview with Ozzy Osbourne's wife/manager Sharon. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.

Parade: Do you look at the avalanche of reality shows that has followed "The Osbournes" and wonder what you started?

Sharon: It's terrible, isn't it? Do you know what? It's like I said to Ozzy, "People will just have go get over it." I haven't seen most of them. I'll watch maybe five minutes of something and check it out.

Parade: What do you think of what you see?

Sharon: I'm totally amazed at how shameless people are. They will repeat something that's been done over and over again and act as if it's unique. I think that the younger generation thinks all they have to do is get on TV and act a bit crazy and things will happen for them. They've got it wrong because you need to have a talent to get really famous.

Parade: So you see a lot of wannabes who don't have a clue about what it takes even though they're getting their proverbial 15 minutes of fame?

Sharon: You've got your superstars. You've got your celebrities. And then you've got your people who I call "infamous."

Parade: You look terrific. How's Ozzy doing?

Sharon: I'm great. He's great. This weekend we're off to Dallas where he'll be performing. He's working on a new album at the same time as doing live shows. He never stops writing music.
