Ace Frehley on Nazi Uniforms, His Alien Ancestors, and Getting Crabs From Gene Simmons

By |November 2nd, 2011|

It’s not usually a good idea to judge a book by its cover, but it’s hard not to with Ace Frehley’s new memoir, No Regrets (Simon & Schuster). The cover image features the former KISS guitarist slumped in the back seat of a car, his hair greasy and his eyes bloodshot, giving an unconvincing thumbs up to the camera. […]

T.I. Loves the Name Wiz Khalifa

By |October 21st, 2011|

“Prison ain’t changed shit, homeboy,” T.I. declared on his new single, “I’m Flexin.” With all due respect to the self-appointed King Of The South, at least a little shit has changed… homeboy. […]

Anthrax’s Scott Ian Will Never Write a Sappy Zombie Song

By |October 10th, 2011|

Of the “Big Four” of ’80s thrash metal — Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica — it’s often been said that Anthrax are the funny ones. Which is an odd compliment. It’s kind of like singling out the funniest Ice Road Trucker.  It’s not really a profession where humor is an asset. […]

Moby Won’t Eat a Hamburger, No Matter How Many Records It Sells

By |May 16th, 2011|

If Moby had the bravado of LL Cool J, he might’ve opened his newest album, Destroyed — which gets released on Tuesday, May 17th— with a lyric like “Don’t call it a comeback / I’ve been here for years!” But that’s never been Moby’s style, even if the sentiment is kind of accurate. It’s quite possible that the last time you heard Moby’s name was back in 1999, when his cross-over album Play provided the soundtrack to everything on the planet, from commercials to TV show and movies to quite likely your own dreams.

In some ways, the new Sammy Hagar memoir, Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock, is exactly what you’d expect from a Sammy Hagar memoir. […]

Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham on Broadway, Back Waxing and Trashing MTV Bathrooms

By |June 7th, 2011|

I was definitely not one of those people anxiously awaiting the release of David Comes to Life, the latest by Canadian hardcore sextet Fucked Up. I will say this much, I love the band’s name. […]
