One of the knocks on the grunge scene of the 1990s was that its musicians took themselves way too seriously. However, Seattle's Alice in Chains, one of the defining bands of the genre, are looking to refute that charge thanks to a new video promoting their upcoming release, 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,' which features a handful of classic rockers appearing as themselves.
Metallica have played plenty of festivals over the years, and even curated their own event with the Orion Music + More festival earlier this year. But even though it should be old hat for them at this point, the veteran rockers still get a buzz out of seeing so much talent in one place.
The great thing about having your own festival is that you get to run it however you like. Metallica really took that to heart adding their own personal attractions for the "more" part of the Orion Music + More festival.
Say what you will about Lars Ulrich, he gives one hell of an interview. In a new sit-down with Maxim, Metallica's outspoken drummer dishes on porn stars, Hulk Hogan, Napster, and what he really thinks about the metal community.
While the temporary marriage of Metallica and Lou Reed seemed like a most harmonious union, Lars Ulrich remembers when things got a little testy. During a revealing interview with Spin, the drummer recalls the day Reed wanted to fight him.
Lars Ulrich puking in your dressing room? That's a rock star's "rock star moment." And that's just what happened to Guns N' Roses' Tommy Stinson. The bassist recently recounted the time when Metallica's rhythm keeper tossed his cookies in front of him backstage. It's one of many such memorable (if not really breakfast-compatible) stories the rock veteran has accumulated over his long and storied career.
