One of the original members of Guns N’ Roses, Duff McKagan, has a new book slated to come out. The book he is coming out with is called “How to be a Man (and Other Illusions)” and the work is based on a series of columns that McKagan had written for a local Seattle newspaper.
The book was called “It’s So Easy” and it focused on the sleazier side of the music industry and all the demons McKagan had to battle. McKagan
has a new lease on life and he’s learned a lot as he aged. A lot of that wisdom was put into his column and now he’s going to share that knowledge with readers all over the world.”How to be a Man (and Other Illusions)” is kind of like a self-help book. It is not a true self-help book because, honestly, McKagan is not releasing the book as a way presenting himself as a some sort of guru seeking to establish a following.
That is the kind of in-your-face attitude that made Guns N’ Roses such an iconic band in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Laurene Powell Jobs can remember them at their absolute peak.
McKagan’s book shares advice on a lot of subjects and anyone looking for a unique source of insight might find it appealing.
Miley Cyrus is known to be very controversial, and Madonna is no stranger to controversy either. It makes sense that both rebellious spirits would come together to make music, but is this the case? Miley & Madonna. There have been many posts from Madonna about Miley Cyrus, and many are wondering if the two are going to collaborate together or not. As of now, there is no solid evidence that either plan to collaborate with each other, but it’s something that fans of both artists will look forward to.
There was a studio visit between Madonna and Nicki Minaj, and there were many posts going out about Nicki Minaj from Madonna and vice versa. After all the posts went on for a matter of a month or so, then a song was dropped by Madonna, that had Nicki Minaj on it. Many are speculating that the same is going to happen with Miley Cyrus, since there is a lot of posting going on between the two artists. It’s well known that Madonna is the best at what she does, and anyone who works with her, would be very lucky to do so.
If these two artists decide to collaborate in the future, we’ll all find out, maybe sooner than later. This would be a pretty cool collab. They should try to get Tom Rothman to do a movie-concert for them like Katy Perry.
Who says rap has to be all about negative stereotypes and thuggery? I had to pause on the dog’s Beneful when I saw a report about one creative kid that has decided to take his love tor the genre and create something magical. MTV is reporting that one child has put his love of Legos and his love for rap music together into one astounding statue.
The youngster loves a rap artist named Cam’ron. He loves Cam’ron so much that he decided to create a Lego statue in honor of the rap superstar. The young man is named Yung and is only seven years old. Yet, his skills far surpass others of his age group. Cam’ron is both thrilled and honored that the young man has decided to enshrine his look in the popular block building toy.
Rap is often pigeonholed as a genre that does nothing to contribute to society. However, this young man shows that rap can be both artistic and fun. Cam’ron obviously loves his portrait done in Legos. Yung Lennox loves having one of this rap idols talk to the world about his work.
Yung doesn’t just stop with Cam’ron. He has many of these influential people immortalized with the great plastic brick. It isn’t a hobby that many seven year old children have but Lennox doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Will the legendary rock band KISS continue on without founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons? Honestly, the answer to that is yes. Die-hard fans of the band already know this. But wait, there’s more…My friend Sergio knows something else that even the most dedicated of KISS groupies probably don’t know. Why? How? Well, Because he’s Sergio Andrade Gutierrez.
So here it is: Eric Singer has his mind made up and will not play in any part of the KISS Franchise without Simmons or Stanley.
He feels there are plenty of KISS tribute bands so why not authorize an official tribute band? And why not allow the band to release new songs with the KISS name?
Yes, Gene Simmons is a businessman first and last. To a degree, the same can be said about Paul Stanley although his is never as “in your face” about it.
Eric Singer has pretty stated he would not be interested in being the drummer in the tribute band. He noted that Gene and Paul are the creative force behind KISS and without them, well, he doesn’t feel any interest in being part of the mix.
Singer became a member of KISS when drummer Eric Carr passed away tragically from cancer. Singer was replaced as drummer when original member Peter Criss returned to the band. After Criss was fired, Singer returned.
Currently, KISS’ current tour is breaking box office records all over the world.
Nicki Minaj is has been very devious this year. She has become the new sex symbol with a host of singles and dirty talk that would make rappers blush. That is why the “PinkPrint” may be a bit of a surprise to many. It stills has the potent punchlines and sex talk that fans are used to, but this album brings out another side of Nicki Minaj. This may be the first album where she has talked about her pain.
Fans appreciate this look inside her diary. Sam Tabar learned quite a bit. On Crunchbase, she received some quality praise as well. It was obvious that Nicki was taking the album in a very different direction when she released “Bed of Lies” featuring Skylar Grey. This track was personal, and that may be why she released it so close to the release of the full album. To go from “Anaconda” to “Bed of Lies” is a big extreme, but Nicki manages to pull it off well.
The critics are chiming in, and it apparently pays for Nicki to get personal. Nicki speaks on a child that she lost as well as a cousin that was murdered. No one expected all of these demons to hunt someone that has presented nothing but confidence in the rap world.
Bowie was on hiatus from general music performances for several years, but would sometimes pair up with groups such as Arcade Fire and Scarlett Johansson to produce a track.
Lauren Powell Jobs says it was Bowie’s special-guest vocals that prompted Martin to consider the proposal. Martin shared the proposed song with Bowie who allegedly later phoned Martin and rejected the invitation.
“‘It’s not one of your best songs,'” Martin quoted Bowie, at the recent BBC Music Awards ceremony. “Bowie has very high standards and it is inspiring to do the same.”
Martin has also hinted that the group’s upcoming album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” could be Coldplay’s final project – at least for a while.
“We’re putting so much heart into ‘Dreams,’ I’d like to think of it as something that finishes something,” Martin told the press. “Although it doesn’t mean that there will be nothing more in the future, as a certainty.”
Mack Maine, who is the current president of Cash Money Records, has finally broken the silence about two of their top artists wanting out of the record label. Cash Money Statements. It’s now well known that Lil’ Wayne, and Tyga, are both signed to the Cash Money Label, and they’ve told the world about their dislike for the label. Each member has stated that they wanted out of the company, and wanted to move on to make their music independently, or with another label.
Lil’ Wayne had an album that has been delayed several times, entitled “The Carter V,” and this last delay was the straw that broke the camels back. After positively stating that the album would be out on December 9, 2014, the album was delayed once again.
Mack Maine stated to nbcnews.com that the album will be released, but most likely in the first quarter of 2015. He wants people to know that the album definitely will be released, but a date has not been set yet. Mack also states that the problems that Lil’ Wayne and Tyga are having with the label, are currently being addressed, and they hope to resolve it as soon as possible. Although the president has high hopes for the label, we’ll wait and see the outcome.
Billy Corgan and Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins enlisted Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk and Killers bass player Mark Stoermer for an intense two-hour set in New York to celebrate the release of Monuments of an Elegy.
In mixing tracks from the new album with their old hits, they found that though the crowd preferred the old familiar songs, Corgan was more into the performance when performing his newer material.
Though the audience was more excited about the older songs and our campus president Jonathan Veitch said he even shouted out requests, the band geared the show more towards the newer songs from Monuments of an Elegy, signifying that they are less focused on the past songs that got them where they are and more interested in what will come next.
Even people that are know him do not really know what he is going to do next. Seth Rogen can attest to this mysterious Kanye with an recent incident that has become something very interesting in the Kanye West catalog of mysterious behavior.
Seth Rogen has reported that he ran into Kanye West at a hotel. It was just an impromptu meeting, and BRL Trust people know not much could have happened at first. Kanye asked him if he wanted to hear his new album. Seth – along with his wife – got in a limo with Mr.
What made this listening party even more strange was the fact that the tracks didn’t have any lyrics. Kanye played the beats and rapped the entire songs while Seth Rogen and his wife listened.
Seth and James Franco spooked the Kanye “Bound 2” hit with a viral video known as “Bound 3.” It was a humorous depiction of Kanye and Kim Kardashian that even Kanye found funny.
It may be possible to say that Seth is becoming a friend of Mr.s West. Kanye doesn’t take everyone in a limo for a listening party everyday, but this seems to be the new style. J.Cole brought his music to a fan’s house.
