Sammy Hagar & Hurricane Odile

Sammy Hagar‘s home was damaged as Hurricane Odile slammed Cabo San Lucas, packing Category 3-level 125 mph. winds on Sunday night. Sammy reports that his Cabo Wabo Cantina, however, was largely untouched :)

“The Cantina is fine, just a little water damage,” Hagar says via Facebook. “It’s unbelievable that none of our employees or anyone we know has been hurt so far — a real miracle. No one was hurt, but my house got tore up pretty good. It went directly over my house, and blew the windows out.” 




Metallica fans only

Watched Metallica's Movie "Through The Never" - Awesome concert footage & one hell of a stage show with all the props, fire, lights and sound !!! Not sure about the storyline footage of the kid with the gas can going to retrieve the "bag" for the band ??? That has a mind trip to watch by it's self... 
 But I would recommend this flick to any Metallica fan !!!!

Michael Sweet And George Lynch - "September"

Stryper frontman Michael Sweet and Dokken/Lynch Mob guitarist George Lynch have teamed up on an album scheduled for release in February 2015. The duo, along with former White Lion bassist James LoMenzo and ex-Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy, have launched a lyric video for the album's opening song "September". 

Sweet tells Loudwire of the track, "The song September was written as a simple reminder to stand strong against our adversaries and even more important, to stand united. We are resilient and although we have faced some of the most horrific events imaginable, we will rise above all due to our spirit, love, bravery and determination. Love conquers hate and that will never change."

Poison 2015

 Rikki Rockett says band are considering hitting the road in 2015 for their first tour in several years. His comments come after Kiss star Gene Simmons became the latest big name to claim the rock scene was dying. Rockett tells Iron City Rocks: "I feel very blessed to be an older rock guy able to get out there and play, and make a living at this. I consider it to be an awesome thing. Poison have only played together recently at private events.

 "They're fun and they pay very well," Rockett says. "It gives us a chance to get together and play. But they're the only shows Poison is doing this year. A few things are being thrown around by our management for next spring. We'll have to see."

Van Halen drama

 Michael Anthony is revisiting his split from Van Halen in a new interview with Eddie Trunk. Anthony was famously removed from the Van Halen lineup by guitarist Eddie Van Halen sometime in 2002 because he remained friendly with Sammy Hagar after his stint in the band. 

 "I think it was actually when Sammy asked me to come out and guest at some shows when he did the Hagar-Roth tour [in 2002],” Anthony tells Eddie Trunk. “I don't think that sat too well with some people. [Laughs] And it was really odd, because I thought that I'd be out there… Sammy asked me, 'Hey, you wanna come out and maybe jam a couple of Van Halen tunes?' whatever. Not do the whole tour, but just do a few shows. And I thought, 'God, that'll be great. I'll go out there and I'll wave the VH flag high. And I'll also let people know that I'm not dead, that I'm still around. And, unfortunately, Eddie didn't see it that way.”

 "What actually happened was I hadn't really decided to do it, and Eddie and Alex [Van Halen] knew about it, and Eddie called me,” he continued. “And I really don't wanna get into that conversation, but to put it in a nutshell, he didn't want me to be a part of that circus. But then Van Halen wasn't doing anything, and I was just so frustrated because I was tired of sitting home on my hands. My wife wanted me out of the house, 'cause I was driving her nuts also. [Laughs] But I just wanted to get out and play. And I thought, you know, it's, like… OK, he's not in the band, but it's, like… I don't know… I guess it was more of, like, 'You're with us or you're not. You're in or you're out.' There's no area… It's cut and dried. And what happened was [Eddie] actually kind of backed me up against the wall and he gave me an ultimatum: Are you gonna go out and you're gonna play this or whatever?' And it really upset me; he pissed me off. And I said, 'I'm gonna go out and play.' And that was kind of the end of that conversation. Then I got a call back from Alex about a half hour later saying, 'Oh, well, you know Ed. You know how Ed is. He's like that,' or whatever. And at that point, I was just, like, 'You know what?! I'm…' As much as I love those guys and the band and whatever, we had just all of a sudden been through so much, after Sammy was out of the band, and I think all of the drama with Gary [Cherone] and whatever, I wanted to get out and play. So I don't know if you would call that me quitting the band or just…? I was backed up against the wall. And I wanted to get out and play." 

 When Hagar was invited to return to Van Halen for a 2004 reunion tour put together to support the band’s ill-planned greatest hits package, “The Best of Both Worlds”, he agreed to participate only if Anthony joined them. The situation caused Eddie to force the bassist to take a pay cut and sign over his rights to any future use of the VH name. 

 Anthony tells Trunk that he has had no contact with the Van Halen brothers in the past decade. "You know what?! The last time that I actually spoke to either one of 'em was the last show of our 2004 tour,” says Anthony. “And it's really sad too. I've heard from different people… I know a lot of people that work with them, like the crew guys and stuff like that. So I always hear stuff from them.

 You know, 'I talked to Al today,' or 'I talked to Eddie,' and I know that Al would like to still have some kind of relationship or whatever, but I think maybe because of the way Eddie felt that Al didn't wanna ruffle his feathers by calling me or whatever." 

 Anthony was eventually replaced by Eddie’s son, Wolfgang, in the Van Halen lineup in 2006, just in time for the return of original singer David Lee Roth. The bassist has since gone on to work with Hagar in Chickenfoot and continues to appear with Sammy at his solo shows from time to time.

Motley Crue up-date

Nikki Sixx went under the knife on 9/3/14 for a double hernia surgery. The bassist revealed the news on his Facebook page, saying he has been in severe pain over the past few months during Motley Crue’s recent tour but played through it for the fans. A break in the band’s touring schedule gave Sixx time to have the procedure, which went well. The rocker, who also plays in Sixx: A.M., is recovering nicely thanks to his wife and kids, but he says the pain is pretty intense. As he stated in his posting below:

 “I have been performing during the last few months with a pretty intense double hernia but you gotta give 100% even through the pain onstage. The good news is yesterday I got surgery on both sides and it went really really well. My lovely wife, kids and Leica have been really taking care of me. I should be up and kicking ass in a few weeks and back in the gym/tour in 6 weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all back out on the road.. PS.. Holy Jesus, it feels like I got kicked in the stomach by a horse. They gave me some pain meds but I am trying to not take them and luckily Courtney Bingham-Sixx looks pretty hot in her nurse outfit…”

Survivor Singer Jimi Jamison Dead

Jimi Jamison, lead singer for the band Survivor, passed away Sunday night at the age of 63. Jamison's booking agent, Sally Irwin, tells TMZ that Jamison died of a heart attack. He had just performed with the band Saturday night in Morgan Hill, CA. 

Beginning with the nationally acclaimed band Target in the 1970s, Jamison continued his rise to stardom with Cobra through the early '80s and in 1983 joined Survivor, who had tasted success with "Eye Of The Tiger". Survivor's first album with Jamison, 1984's 'Vital Signs', achieved multi-platinum status with a string of hit singles that kept Survivor on the charts for over 40 weeks in 1984 and '85. It was their established AOR airplay and Billboard Top 20 hits; "I Can't Hold Back", "High On You" and "The Search Is Over" which reached #2 on the hot 100, that kept Survivor at the top of the record and concert business.

Pantera reunion... Not !!!

Vinnie Paul has slammed fans who want a Pantera reunion as selfish. Speculation has circulated for some time that the band could regroup with Zakk Wylde in place of murdered guitarist Dimebag Abbott - providing frontman Phil Anselmo and Dime's brother Paul can settle their differences. But the drummer tells EMP Rock Invasion: 

"People are selfish. They want what they want; they don't care what you want. People go, 'Oh wow, they can get Zakk to jump up there on stage and it's Pantera again.' "No it's not. It's not that simple. If Eddie Van Halen was to get shot in the head four times next week, would everybody be going, 'Hey, Zakk, go play for Van Halen - just call it Van Halen.' "It's really selfish for people to think that, and it's stupid. It's not right at all."

Tommy Lee - Crüecifly Live

Genesis DVD

Genesis concert film Three Sides Live is set to be released on Blu-ray for the first time. Three Sides Live is released on the format in November. Filmed in November 1981 on the Abacab tour in North America, it was originally released on VHS to coincide with the live album of the same name. It has only ever been released on DVD in the limited edition box set The Movie Box 1981-2007. Originally filmed in 16mm, the footage has now been fully restored and is being reissued as a standalone DVD and Blu-ray. The show focuses on tracks from the Duke and Abacab albums and the tracks are intercut with behind the scenes footage and interviews with band members.


Album Sales Bottom Out

Billboard reports that this week’s 3.97-million album sales total is the smallest weekly sum since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. It’s also the first time since then that weekly sales have fallen below four million. Last week’s top-selling album, Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Blacc Hollywood,’ debuted with 90,000 units sold — well below the first-week sales of many other top debuts this year and while three other albums debuted in the top 10, they but averaged only 31,000 units moved each. The same week last year, 4.88 million albums were sold. This year, there have only been five weeks with more than 5 million sales and they each happened more than 18 weeks ago.
