Def Leppard Not Playing New Music For Summer Tour

Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott said the band will absolutely not play new music during their upcoming tour with Styx and Tesla.

Elliott doesn’t want poor quality versions put on YouTube.  He wants fans to hear the songs for the first time when they are completed and not a crappy version from an iPhone.

He also shot down any chance of the three bands performing together.

The 48 city trek begins June 23rd in Tampa, Florida and ends October 4th in Bismarck, North Dakota.

 

Police, Tool, Rush Drummers Record Jam Session

Former Police drummer Stewart Copeland teamed with Rush’s Neil Peart, Tool’s Danny Carey, South Park co-creator Matt Stone and Vertical Horizon frontman Matt Scannell to create a song “A Little More Noise.”

The song has a jazzy groove and features other musicians on the guitar, piano and horns. The song can be heard on his YouTube channel.

Copeland has been hosting jam sessions since 2008 when the Police reunion tour ended.

He has also worked with Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, Serj Tankian from System Of A Down and Snoop Dogg.

Russian Tests Bulletproof Helmet By Shooting Dude in Head

There are so many other ways to have gone about testing this bulletproof helmet. For example, they could have taken it to one of those labs you see on TV and let a ballistics expert take care of business. Hell, if they’re on a budget they could have just done it right where this video takes place, but without a person inside the helmet. None that works though. Not only do we need to know if this helmet can actually stop a bullet from drilling through your skull, we need to see if the guy wearing it will live long enough to take another swig of vodka. And, you know, you can get way more views on the internet for the real deal. Bravo, comrades.

Ozzy Osbourne Faces $27,000 Bat Removal Bill

Ozzy Osbourne will have to pay $27,400 to have an infestation of bats removed from his home.

It’s not what you think. Ozzy isn’t hoarding an evil army of bats, or even keeping them for consumption at a later date. Turns out that bats are all protected in the UK and Ozzy wants to build some apartments. So he’s gotta take care of these bats.

The bats have been living there since May but Ozzy finally got permission to have them removed. He still has to get a license before they can be removed. Maybe the bats knew he was the Prince of Darkness and decided to make the barn on his property their home knowing it would be a huge hassle. It’s not like Ozzy can go all himself on the bats and start chomping, because then he’d be in a lot of trouble under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.

If Ozzy had them removed illegally he would be facing a fine up to $7,600 per bat or a 6 month jail sentence. All of this is so un-metal!
