Yep. You'll be missed, Lemmy.


And crap, he was 70? I would never have guessed that.

Looking forward to the new Bowie album, he's so consistently good.

Yep.  The band says he was found playing his favorite video game.  Two days after the cancer diagnosis.  (Note that he didn't go to the doctor for months because he had to give up drinking two years before and didn't want to be told to give up speed.  Kids...don't do speed.  If you do do speed, go to the doctor...)

Edgar Wright tweeted a quick story where he met Lemmy who was graciously signing autographs, but never getting distracted from the fruit machine he was playing.  That seems right somehow.

I'm not a Motorhead fan at all, but this how I was first introduced to it.  RIP Lemmy.  :'(

So, AC/DC was on tour when suddenly Brian Johnson, their lead singer, had to quit immediately or face total hearing loss.

Well, at Coachella, they announced that they'd recruited a replacement singer to help finish up the promised tour.

It's Axl Rose.

Axl will be joining the band for their European tour, and then returning to the US for the "Let's See if Slash and Axl kill each other" GNR reunion tour.

I've always though Brian sucks so even if he brings his shtick to it I'm happy to see Axl there.



Laughable old man representing other laughable old men yells at cloud, every year and every album confirms my thinking Metallica were the real life Spinal Tap after watching their making of Black album documentary as a kid

The AP is reporting that Prince has been found dead at his home in Paisley Park. He had unexpectedly collapsed last week, but was seemingly fine afterwards, performing a concert the next day. Sadly, it looks like his health was worse than expected.

I don't find Stratton and Varney funny.
Doesn't make me a bad person.
