At Bush’s concert last night in Los Angeles, CA, Gavin Rossdale was joined by his wife Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) during their performance of “Glycerine”. The surprise took place at the 23rd annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas at the Gibson Ampitheatre. You can watch fan-filmed footage of the song below.
While it’s not terrible, I just cannot stand Stefani’s constant upward inflections when she sings. It seems like every line has to end with her pitch rising. Also, and I know that this is a REALLY stupid complaint, why the hell is she wearing high heels? Totally out of place in her outfit. READ MORE
Update: According to the AP, singer Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse. The band also told AP that their set was not cut short.
On Friday night, at the IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV (which was also being broadcast live via Yahoo), Green Day frontman Billie Joe lost it when he saw that his band only had one more minute left to perform. And by “lost it”, I mean that he basically had a childish temper tantrum where he swore up a storm (he used the word ‘f*ck’, or a derivation of it, 21 times), smashed his guitar and then threw his microphone across the stage.
The trigger for this was the fact that all bands/performers at the festival had a 25-30 set time allotted. This included No Doubt, Usher, and Bon Jovi, as well as many others. And yet, for some reason, Billie Joe felt that his band deserved a longer set list, claiming that they’ve been around, “…since f*cking nineteen eighty f*cking eight“. Hmmm, Bon Jovi’s first release was 1984, but you don’t hear him whining, do you Billie?
Apparently, Billie Joe wasn’t calm or rational during the show either. Yahoo states that he berated the few people who decided to sit down during their performance (I’d be sitting too), the band premiered a new song entitled “It’s F*ck Time”, and Billie Joe pulled down his pants, revealing his, “…personal grooming habits.”
Read on for my thoughts as well as a video of Billie Joe reverting to a snubbed 4-year old. READ MORE
Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, the four-piece Royal Thunder, together since 2007, cut their teeth with an EP released in late 2009 and several tours alongside Kylesa, Wovenhand. Birds Of Avalon, and many more. Now they are back with their first full-length album CVI, an album that proudly shows their Southern heritage. But does it hit as hard as they wish or does it fall flat? Find out below. READ MORE
In a painfully unfunny video, the four members of No Doubt have set an official Sept. 25th release date for their as-of-yet-untitled upcoming album. This will be their first album since 2001′s Rock Steady, which won two Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals Grammy awards for the singles “Hey Baby” and “Underneath It All”. You can check out the video announcement below.
Personally, I was always more of a Tragic Kingdom kid. I must’ve played “Sunday Morning” at least 100 times. So here’s hoping that elements of that album find their way into this upcoming effort. READ MORE
