In an effort to help the Animal Resource Center in Oklahoma City after last month’s tornado, Maynard James Keenan has offered up a couple gems to auction off. He’s donated two autographed platinum plaques. One of the plaques is for Tool’s “Undertow” and the other is for A Perfect Circle’s “Mer de Noms.”
As of this post, he’s been going for nearly 14 hours! His goal is to reach 24 hours, and he has help from some fellow drummers including Questlove, Chad Johnson, Nick Jonas and Zac Hanson. Party on, Andrew!
So you couldn’t go to Orion Fest. No worries, Metallica wants you to relive it with them in this footage of their surprise performance at the festival. They were teasing not to miss a performance from a band called ‘dehaan’ on one of the festival’s side stages.
To everyone’s surprise that attended the dehaan performance…out comes METALLICA! They played Kill ‘Em All in it’s entirety!
The video below features a warm up set as well!
Thank you, Metallica…
For still delivering metal up our a$$es!
Alice in Chains have launched their very own pinball app. It’s part of the new ‘Pinball Rocks’ HD application, which is available now for iOS.
It’ll only set you back by $2.99, too. You can’t beat that price in this economy. The way we see it, if you’re going to get carpal tunnel syndrome from using your thumbs and other digits to send texts and emails on your phone, why not add some hard rock and fun into the mix with a cool app like this?
The trailer for the app, which you can view below, effectively puts you right inside the bright, boldly colored game, which comes with a guitar in the center, a sun-styled Alice in Chains logo and plenty of bumpers, ramps and alleys.
