    Music News

    Post  mcmicken on Fri Dec 18, 2009 4:08 pm

    I've been thinking about making a thread like this for a while because I keep pretty up-to-date with the music industry on a day-to-day basis. Basically it's a thread documenting and discussing what's going on in the music industry, both as a business and with regards to bands/artists.

    The news that has promted me to finally make this thread is the news that John Frusciante has quit as the guitarist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He rejoined the band and all albums from Californication onwards to Stadium Arcadium and these have been some of RHCP's best works as cited by critics and fans alike.

    I was never a huge Chili's fan but the era of their music that I grew up with was mainly Frusciante's era so I can't help but feel a little bit bummed about it. I have a couple of his solo albums which are still pretty damned good (more experimental mind you) and I reckon you should check 'em out (Shadows Collide with People being the most accesible I think) but I always saw him as "that guy out the Chili's". One of the most underrated guitarist of this generation, with a few giving him the title of "our Hendrix" which I partially agree with. My guitar amp is actually set to the same (apparently) settings as his is. That's how much of an influence he has become over the years.

    Sad times, but hopefully both parties will grow and become more successful in their own rights.

    To anyone who knows the American rock band Avenged Sevenfold it brings me much sadness to tell you that Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan was found dead yesterday. No news on how it happened as of yet but I'm still in shock. The guy was only 28...RIP dude.

    Will keep updated when I hear any more news on it.

    Kinda music-y but would also fit in my wee Nirvana topic...

    Robert Pattinson (that fucker from Twilight) was rumoured to be playing Kurt Cobain in an upcoming movie but that rumour has been quashed. Could have a Scotsman, James MacAvoy playing him Very Happy

    Also for those who like metal/metalcore, new Bullet for my Valentine is sounding tasty. I'm excited for this one since the Scream Aim Fire record was, for the most part, a load of tosh.

    Oh, and Nickelback, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin & Sick Puppies are touring together. In my opinion that's one FORKING AWESOME tour. Pity it's only in the US :( Why do all the best rawk tours only do 'Merica?!

    Got the new AB record today due to the wonder of pre-order :)

    I intend to review it because although I'm going to be really biased due to my love of the band, it's a slightly different record to what I was expecting. Not a million miles off but it's a small departure from their usual. Rawkin' Very Happy

    Hatsune Miku is getting an upgrade so she can sing english.
    Not that I imagine that'll make a diffrence to anyone here,
    after all we're not exactly ones to use voice synths for anything.

    New music from one of my favourite lesser known bands Egypt Central. The song White Rabbit is available to stream in full on their official site

    http://www.egyptcentral.net/

    I thought the album was due in February/March but turns out that the single is available in March and the album on May 17th.

    Also, new Foo's track White Limo is pretty rockin'. Pretty heavy for them Very Happy Plus the new record is due for April 12th Very Happy
