Luckily this fan got some good footage of Alice In Chains performing the halftime show of the Packers vs Seahawks game Sunday after FOX didn’t air any of the performance.
Metallica posted a photo on their Instagram page of bassist Rob Trujillo playing in the studio. The photo taken by Lars Ulrich is captioned, “Rockin along.”
Trujillo said the band is laying the blueprint for the album and have a lot of ideas for songs. He said he is happy with what they are doing instrumentally.
The upcoming album will be the band’s tenth. A release date isn’t known.
According to Chris Cornell’s Facebook, January 15 marked Day 1 of the recording process for his new album.
Cornell has a busy year ahead of him. After Soundgarden released a collection of rarities in November, they plan to go back into the studio later this year to work on a new album. Plus, he will join the surviving members of Mad Season and Duff McKagan at the end of this month for a special performance with the Seattle symphony.

Alice In Chains will perform at halftime this Sunday during the Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers game in Seattle.
It’s fitting because Jerry Cantrell has been a fan of the Seahawks since he was a kid and Alice In Chains are one of several notable bands to come out Seattle during the 90s alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam.
System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian and Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello will be featured on the Randy Rhoads tribute album “Immortal Randy Rhoads: The Ultimate Tribute.” The album will be out March 3rd.
The album features Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot songs that Rhoads co-write including “Crazy Train”, “Mr. Crowley” and “Back To The Coast.” The album has 11 songs.
Another tribute album to Rhoads, “Randy Rhoads Remembered, Vol 1” will be out January 23rd.
Van Halen lead singer David Lee Roth joined the Foo Fighters on stage Saturday night in Los Angeles to perform “Panama” and “Ain’t Talkin Bout Love.”
KISS frontman Paul Stanley joined them for “Detroit Rock City” and Alice Cooper played “School’s Out.”
Black Label frontman Zakk Wylde performed the Black Sabbath songs, “N.I.B.” and “Fairies Don’t Wear Boots.”
Wylde also joined Slash and Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister to close out the show.
Proceeds from the show benefited the Rock School Scholarship Fund, MusiCares and Sweet Relief.

Marilyn Manson has claimed that he is responsible for inventing the term “grunge”.
The rocker says that he coined phrase when he was working as a music journalist and reviewing Nirvana’s debut album ‘Bleach’.
He said: “I hated rock’n'roll when I started. It was on the cusp of grunge and a lot of bands that I used to call ‘commonist rock’ because everyone wanted to be like the common man with the flannel shirts and Pearl Jam and their fight against Ticketmaster and all this horse s–t. Nirvana was different. That was one of the bands I covered first as a journalist and I’m just going to go ahead and say I coined the term ‘grunge’ in a review of ‘Bleach’. You’re welcome.”
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx would turn down Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx said he would decline an invitation from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if they would get nominated. He said the hall “has lost touch with art, songwriting, lyrics and influential music.”
Sixx posted on Facebook it is the one award he does look forward to.
Motley Crue has been eligible for the hall since 2006.
Former AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young battled cancer— and had a pacemaker inserted
Former AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young had lung cancer while the band was finishing their 2008 tour for the album, “Black Ice.” The cancer was caught early and he had surgery to remove the cancer.
A short time later Young had a pacemaker inserted because of a heart condition.
Young had to leave the band last year due to dementia. He wasn’t able to contribute to their latest album, “Rock Or Bust.”
This video shows Rage Against The Machine’s whole set when they played at Pitzer College in California in February 1992, several months before the release of their debut album.
