Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour!

Revolver Magazine’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour is just around the corner! February to be exact to March 2014. I’m not sure why I wrote the year, what tour would go all the way to next year 2015? AN AWESOME ONE! I can dream, right? Anyway, you will not want to miss this show. I’d love to go but sadly, it’s on a Monday and although I’m not far from NYC, I have this bogus, small problem: I have a job that requires my full attention before noon. Not that it’s not FANTASTIC (you hear that, kiddies? That’s called sarcasm) but I do need to be there on time so I can collect pennies and pay for my awesome 1 bedroom apartment and bills. Great, there’s that headache again! -.-

Sick Puppies, Lacuna Coil, Eyes Set To Kill, and Cilver will be performing this badass tour. I’ve been meaning to see Sick Puppies and Eyes Set To Kill. I enjoy their tunes, however, Cilver seems to be a new upcoming band from NYC. Not too shabby either. Uliana is the front woman, go ahead, try and pronounce her name. YOUUUUU-LEE-ANA? Whatev’s, cool story, bro.

Check out their video In My Head. I don’t know why but I love voices like this. She has this innocent, clean, girly voice but when mixed in with the guitar riffs at 2:44, she becomes the filthy, flirty girl she comes off in the video… with a heavy weapon 😉

Lacuna Coil has all my respect. She was actually the reason I wanted to try out for bands – err, band? (That’s another story!) Unlike Uliana, Cristina Scabbia’s voice has this haunting, echoing tone that I can catch instantly. My favorite song and video from them is I Like It. I’ve never interacted with her but she seems to showcase her playfulness throughout the video and the ability to have an open mind, which is already awesome.

Sick Puppies’ hot chick is Emma Anzai. She rocks on the bass and the song that caught me was Youre’ Going Down. Sweet Christ, I love the bass. I was not expecting a chick to be playing that so when I found out she was the bassist, I was quite impressed.

Eyes Set To Kill has two lovely ladies – sisters, actually. Alexia and Anissa Rodriguez. WHAT?! You mean there are other Latinas who enjoy metal? I thought I was the only one!!Infected’s video is alright. It reminded me a little of Disturbed’s videos. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the song so no links to that, sorry L Infected sounds great, their vocals are raspy oppose to that light and airy feeling most female singers have.

 These are great bands you want to see live. Who doesn’t want to stare at hot chicks rocking out on the mic or instruments? These are girls with REAL talent! Applaud them!

Joey Jordison leaves Slipknot, Ian Watkins enters prison

I feel like I have only been reading bad news in the rock music industry lately. The most recent upsetting news was Joey Jordison leaving Slipknot and Ian Watkins of Lostprophets getting locked up. I’ll do a quick recap for those who haven’t heard the latest. First of all, I love Joey, hell, seeing his drum skit live where they turn him upside down in air is wicked awesome but… I have to talk about what the FUCK Ian Watkins did to earn him the throne of worthless douchebaggery.

Let’s start with very brief history. Ian Watkins was the front man and one of the founders of Lostprophets. I remembering listening to Lostprophets during my teenage, angst-filled years. I remember doing some serious underage drinking to their smash hit, “Last Train Home” with my burn out buddies. I loved their music and not to mention he was hot, alas, he would have never gone for my teenage body considering his taste.

Somewhere between his fame and serious drug addictions, he had developed a sick and sexual appetite for babies. YES, YOU READ CORRECTLY, BABIES. Not horny teenie boppers, not barely legal deviants, fucking babies, toddlers! Not only was reading that headline hard enough but the mothers of these poor children were WILLING to let him “borrow” them. These innocent lives that were ruined by the one person who were biologically programed to love and protect them. I followed the trial back in November 2013 and couldn’t believe the horrors I was reading.

Long story short, “Prosecutor Chris Clee gave details of a sickening plot to turn babies into sex objects and Watkins’ desires to to ‘cross the line’ and take things ‘to the next level’,” – WalesOnline. Thanks, Ian! Thank you for ruining songs that once made me relive great memories.

Moving on, Slipknot and Joey Jordison have parted ways… NOOO!!! I received a text from one of my fellow Maggots in the wee early hours a couple of weeks ago and Googled it. With my eyes still sleep crusted and confused, I found it was true. However, looking deeper into the news, it appears Joey did not quit. In fact, it seems to be a deeper situation than what the public knows. “Personal problems” is the only clue Maggots around the world are being given. According to  MetalHammer, “He stops short of stating he was fired, but adds that he was ‘blindsided.’”

Hm, so what really happened? I. DON’T. KNOW! And if anyone does, please feel free to let me know. Joey also adds Slipknot has been his family for 18 years and he would not disappointment his fans by simply abandoning them. Front man Corey Taylor is also keeping his lips sealed by stating he is protecting Joey, himself, and the band. Only time will tell what the future holds for Slipknot and Joey but it is safe to say that whoever is going to be the new drummer will have very big (maybe not that big, Joey was pretty short!) shoes to fill.

Hopefully the next time I blog will be on a happier note… and without this bitching headache.
