01/09/2014 - BACH VS NUGENT

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has apparently responded to Ted Nugent's recent comments about him in which the legendary rocker described Bach as "incredibly gifted… but… weak."

In an interview with Radio.comNugent stated about Bach: "I love the guy, he's incredibly gifted, a gentleman for the most part, but he's weak. He's weak. And he doesn't understand the concept of the [body as a] Sacred Temple. He doesn't understand accountability. He doesn't understand — clearly — how his indulgences and his poisons ruin his life. And his relationships, and his marriage. And his musical capabilities. I love the guy and if he's watching this, I love you, but when you're the drunk Sebastian Bach, you're nowhere near the Sebastian Bach that you are when you're clean and sober. Case closed. That isn't a Ted Nugent opinion, that's scientific truism."

After Nugent's comments were posted on BLABBERMOUTH.NET on Friday, Bach took to his Twitter account to write: "Being a racist is fucking weak."

01/09/2014 - GLENN CORNICK R.I.P.

01/09/2014 - THIEVES BREAK INTO MICHAEL SCHENKER'S STUDIO

Michael Schenker’s next Temple Of Rock album is in disarray after thieves broke into his studio and stole guitars, equipment and the computers containing his recorded work to date.

But vocalist Doogie White has vowed the band will get over the disaster – while appealing for help to recover the missing property.

The theft took place between Friday evening and Sunday morning at Kidroom Studios in Greven, Germany, where tracking was underway for Spirit On A Mission. Amongst the stolen items are four Schenker guitars including a custom Dean V in chrome – one of only three ever made.

White tells TeamRock: “We’re a bit fucked and a bit pissed off. I only got home on Friday after laying down the vocals, and Herman Rarebell just arrived to track the drums. The thieves broke in through skylights and stole a bunch of guitars, and also the computers containing the tracks. Then we found they’d also taken the backups.

“There’s still some confusion over whether we even have rough mixes of the songs. It remains to be seen what, if anything, we have left to listen to and work from.”

White reports the band are grateful for the support shown by fans who have spread the word about the stolen instruments. He says: “The ‘criminal masterminds’ behind this sorry affair just saw guitars and computers. They have no idea how difficult it may be to offload them.

“Any reputable dealer will know they’re stolen. No fan will buy them – they’re more likely to knock the seller out and hand them back. And casual players won’t want them. A Dean V ain’t for doodling on in front of the TV.”

A police investigation is underway while Schenker and co consider their own next steps. “The temptation is to say, ‘Return that which you have taken and you can go free, no questions asked,’” says White. “However much that sticks in our craw, it may be the course of action to take. We’ll see what happens over the next few days.

“I spoke to Michael this morning and he’s very matter-of-fact about it all. We agree there’s not much as can do, other than knuckle down and get on with what needs to be done. We’ll refocus, regroup and have a fresh plan in a day or two.

Alice Cooper‘s Aug. 3, 2013, concert at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany, will soon be available for mass consumption. ‘Raise the Dead – Live From Wacken’ will be released on Oct. 21 as a CD and DVD combo.

Featuring 22 songs — including covers of the Doors‘ ‘Break on Through,’ the Who‘s ‘My Generation’ and Pink Floyd‘s ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ — the DVD spotlights Cooper’s legendary stage show, complete with the famous guillotine. In the above video released to promote ‘Raise the Dead,’ Cooper describes how the concert was conceived to be a three-act musical, with equal parts comedy and horror.

“We’re not going there to say, ‘Gee, I hope you like us tonight,’” Cooper says. “We’re going there with the attitude of grabbing ‘em by the throat and not letting ‘em go.”

‘Raise the Dead – Live from Wacken’ is the first offering of a new series comprised of performances from the Wacken Festival. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wacken Foundation, whose goal is to supporting the growth of new hard rock and heavy metal bands.
