Read my review and look at my photos from the final date of Slipknot's "Prepare for Hell" tour with Korn and King 810 on December 7 in Lowell, MA. The whole thing, I think, was sick.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't hesitate to call "Prepare for Hell" one of the best tours of the band's career. It says a lot that both Slipknot and Korn are still going strong, releasing interesting material and putting on such strong performances 15+ years later. The thousands of fans in attendance clearly loved it, and the late Gray would be proud to see his brothers carrying on his legacy with such reverence.

Buddy from Senses Fail posted a message on Facebook asking what it is that upsets people so much about him speaking out for LBGTQ rights.
What is it that upsets people so much about me (Buddy Nielsen) speaking up about LGBTQ rights? I am generally interested to hear what it is that bothers people so much about it? I identify as Queer and recently came out, I feel the need to raise awareness about the shame and silence I stayed in for 25 years. This is a band fronted by someone who is not straight. I cannot separate my music from internally who I am and am not willing to. The rights of other LGBTQ people are very important to me.

I don't want others to have to suffer the way I did....

Andrew McMahon recently commented on his Reddit AMA about his stance on streaming services. All of his responses can be found here.
Not everything is about revenue. These streaming services are bringing people back in to the fold who would otherwise only be pirating music. They are also giving smaller and mid slze artists a platform. The radio is still very powerful and the same amount of artists have been blowing up year after year on radio since well before I was born. Those hits add up to big dollars for the artists who have them, yet those are the people upset? I always find it interesting that the artists who complain most about spotify and similar sites are the ones making the...

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Seth Rogen talks about how Kanye rapped his entire upcoming album to him in the back of a limo shortly after his parody of the "Bound 2" video. Read it here.
Shortly after his and James Franco's parody of the rapper's "Bound 2" video Ė "Bound 3," in which the actor played the role of topless Kim Kardashian Ė West cornered Rogen at a New York hotel and invited him to his limo van for a listening session with a twist. "There's no lyrics, only beats," Rogen said. "So he raps the whole album, and after each song, he stops it, like, 'So what do you think?' We were in the van for two hours!"
