Lou Reed thinks Kanye West’s “Yeezus” is “majestic and inspiring.” Reed found time to write a 2,000-word review for “The Talkhouse” where he expresses his views on Ye’s set.
Reed said: “There are moments of supreme beauty and greatness on this record, and then some of it is the same old sh*t. It’s like farting. It’s another dare. I dare you to like this. Very perverse.”
“With this album, it’s now that you like me, I’m going to make you unlike me. It’s a dare. It’s braggadoccio. Axl Rose has done that too, lots of people have. ‘I Am a God’ — I mean, with a song title like that, he’s just begging people to attack him.”
“Some lyrical references, like ‘getting head from nuns and eating Asian pussy with sweet and sour sauce,’ which might be funny to a 14-year-old but has nothing to do with me. C’mon, he’s just having fun. That’s no more serious than if he said he’s going to drop a bomb on the Vatican.”
Oh yeah…on his birthday!!!
Enjoy this moment of Zen!
Boston guitarist Tom Scholz has been ordered to pay $132,000 to the Boston Herald for court fees incurred after Scholz unsuccessfully sued the newspaper, The Associated Press reports. The original lawsuit centered on Scholz’s claim that the paper suggested that he was responsible for the 2007 suicide of Boston lead singer Brad Delp.
A Superior Court judge ruled that the Herald could not be held liable for defaming Scholz because it’s impossible to know what caused Delp to kill himself, and ordered Scholz to pay for costs that included transcribing depositions, filing fees and stenography services.
Scholz’s attorneys have argued that the rocker shouldn’t have to pay the fees, but the judge has said that court rules require it and such costs could effect ”free expression of ideas and opinions by media defendants.”
The guitarist founded Boston in the Seventies, and the band released three albums with Delp on lead vocals: the massive-selling debut Boston in 1976, followed by Don’t Look Back in 1978 and Third Stage in 1986. Delp also contributed vocals to the group’s 2002 album Corporate America.
SOiL is set to release their new album “Whole” on August 20 and released their new music video for the album’s first single “Shine On.” Check it out below.
The new music video from Nine Inch Nails for “Came Back Haunted” is now released. The video was directed by David Lynch, so combining David’s signature style of being dramatic and mystical in his imaging with Nine Inch Nails’ dark, industrial style, we get an intense, and almost frightening music video. What else should we expect though, right?
There is a warning at the beginning for those who might suffer from epilepsy or be sensitive to flashing lights because of the video material.
Seeing Black Sabbath on their upcoming North American tour would be awesome enough, but throwing Andrew W.K. into the lineup will make it the ultimate party. He will start every show with a DJ set playing classic and modern rock favorites to get the crowd ready. Black Sabbath’s goal was for Andrew W.K. to pump up the crowd as much as possible before the band takes the stage. I think Andrew will do just fine after he proved he could gain the world record for longest drum session, drumming for 24 hours straight.

Pandora responded to Pink Floyd’s claims that the company is “tricking artists” into supporting a massive royalty cut. They say the band were given “badly misleading information.”
The three surviving members of Pink Floyd accused Pandora of trying to cut musicians’ pay for digital radio play by 85 percent. But the service says the 85 percent is incorrect, and that Pandora pays songwriters and performers more than other services.

Here’s more from Bruce:
Trent Reznor spoke out about guitarist Adrian Belew quitting Nine Inch Nails.
Adrian joined the band’s line-up in February but quit earlier this month, posting on his Facebook page: “Concerning me being part of the 2013 Nine Inch Nails band: it didn’t work.”
Reznor admitted the shifting of lineup had been “disruptive”.
He said: ”You can spend a lot of time hypothesizing, imagining and projecting what it’s gonna be with this chemistry and this recipe of people in a room playing music, and in reality it rarely is that.”
“It’s felt like a wrench in the works at times, but at the same time it’s made me rethink a lot of how we put this together, and I think where we’re ending up at is a place that’s much truer to what Nine Inch Nails should be and better in the long run”.
Nine Inch Nail drops their new album, “Hesitation Marks”, on September 3rd.
