  • OZZY: ONE MORE BLACK SABBATH ALBUM AND TOUR

    Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that Black Sabbath will record a new studio album in 2015 and head out on one final tour. Ozzy told Metal Hammer magazine, "The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great. We all made friends, we didn't f*** around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we're going to do one more album, and a final tour."

    Although the band has yet to write any new material, Ozzy added, "It'll be sooner rather than later. Obviously a lot of it is coming down to Tony (Iommi)'s health, he's obviously got his cancer treatment, but we'll get onto it next year. I don't know if we'll be writing in England or L.A., but I'll fly to the f***ing moon for it if I have to!"

    • Ozzy said that Rick Rubin, who produced last year's 13 album, will likely be back for the next project.
    • 13 was the first Sabbath album in 35 years to feature Ozzy, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler together, with drummer Bill Ward the only founding member to sit out the record and world tour.
    • Ozzy told us why, after two previous attempts in 1998 and 2001, a Sabbath reunion album finally happened: "It was kind of like a case of now or never, because we attempted it on a couple of occasions before and it fell to pieces for one reason or another. But we knew this was probably our last attempt at doing a reunion album. We had a mission on this album and for whatever reason it worked out great, you know."
    • 13 went to Number One in both the U.S. and the U.K., a first for the band in America and only their second chart-topper in their native country since 1971.
    • Butler said in a recent interview that the band had four tracks left over from the sessions for 13, which could give them a head start on writing the next album.
    • Iommi revealed in January of 2012 that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma and had to return to England every six weeks for treatment throughout the course of Sabbath's year-long tour.

  • HALESTORM POSTS FIRST BEHIND-THE-SCENES VIDEO FROM STUDIO

    Halestorm has just posted the first in what is expected to be a series of video clips from the studio where the band is recording its third album. Shot on the quartet's fifth day in the studio, the 13-minute clip features each of the group's members discussing their work and hinting at what fans can expect from the follow-up to 2012's Grammy-winning sophomore effort, The Strange Case Of . . . .

    Noting that the band members are recording their tracks together instead of individually, frontperson Lzzy Hale said, "It’s very performance-based. It’s very much based on whether or not we can all hit it at the same time or whether or not I can hit a note without having to be auto-tuned or something like that. It’s definitely a challenge."

    • Drummer Arejay Hale added, "It’s a way more organic way to record, which is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that it really captures what we are as a band. It’s not manufactured or super edited or super perfect."
    • Lzzy Hale told Gearphoria earlier this month hat Halestorm has "definitely evolved."
    • The Strange Case Of . . . yielded two chart-topping rock singles in "Freak Like Me" and the Grammy-winning "Love Bites (So Do I)".
    • Halestorm will embark on a U.S. tour later this fall, beginning on November 11th in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

  • THREE DAYS GRACE RELEASES NEW SONG

    Three Days Grace has released a new song called "I Am Machine," accompanied by a lyric video. The track is the second new track issued this year by the Canadian act, following the chart-topping "Painkiller" earlier this year. Both songs are expected to appear on the group's upcoming fifth album, which Loudwire reports will now have a March 31st, 2015 release date.

    Drummer Neil Sanderson told us what to expect from the new disc musically: "This record, we really wanted to go back to the raw, really aggressive, you know, sometimes rough around the edges and just bruteness. And that's kind of what's coming out and maybe it's a reflection of just where our heads have been at and the experiences that we've had."

  • The yet-to-be-titled new album will follow up 2012's Transit Of Venus.
  • It's the first to feature new frontman Matt Walst, brother of bassist Brad Walst​. Matt replaced original singer Adam Gontier in early 2013 and was officially made a member of the band last March.
  • The first new song written by the revamped band, "Painkiller," became the 12th Number One track of their career at Active Rock radio this past summer.

  • SLASH SAYS YOUNG MUSICIANS 'JUST WANT TO GRAB A BUNCH OF CASH'

    Slash vented his feelings about today's generation of musicians in a new interview with Irish outlet The Independent, saying, "You know what’s wrong with the whole f***in’ entertainment business? Kids these days just want to grab a bunch of cash, do as little work, with as little integrity as possible, and just f***ing retire, man."

    The legendary guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said he had problems with that attitude because he was never in it for the money. He explained, "I loved playing. I loved doing concerts. I loved recording. And that’s still what I’m in it for today."

    • Slash did admit to us a while back that musicians now have it harder in some ways than his generation: "Right now, for kids starting a band and all that, it's like the Wild West out there. There's no set path. There's a lot of great opportunities, there's a lot of different avenues that are available to you now that weren't available back in the day, but they're all hit or miss. You know, you've just got to take your chances."
    • Asked what he would tell his two sons, 12-year-old London and 10-year-old Cash, if they decided to go into the music business, Slash replied, "I’d say, ‘Look, if you want to pick up an instrument, play it because you love the sound it makes. If you want to write songs and be in a band, that’s fine, too. Just know there’s nothing to be gained from it except personal enjoyment.’"
    • Slash's third solo album, World On Fire, sold around 29,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at Number 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart last week.
    • Slash and his band performed at three iconic clubs in Los Angeles last week -- the Troubadour, the Roxy, and the Whisky-A-Go-Go -- as part of Guitar Center's 50th anniversary celebration.

  • POSSIBLE BREAK IN CASE OF MURDERED METALLICA FAN

    Police investigators may have finally gotten a break in the case of a 20-year-old Metallica fan who disappeared nearly five years ago after leaving the band's concert on the campus of Virginia Tech, only for her remains to be found several months later. According to local TV station WTVR, police have found evidence that links the man suspected of abducting another female college student two weeks ago to the 2009 case of Morgan Harrington.

    Police searching the home of 32-year-old Jesse L. Matthew, who is suspected of abducting vanished 18-year-old Hannah Greene on September 13th, apparently discovered forensic evidence that connects Matthew to Harrington, who vanished on October 17th, 2009 after leaving the Metallica show. Her remains were found in a remote area of farmland about 10 miles away the following January.

    • Hannah Graham was last seen on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, Virginia in the early morning hours of September 13th. Witnesses and video cameras placed her with a man believed to be Matthews.
    • Graham was reported missing on the 14th and her whereabouts remain unknown. Matthew, who has retained an attorney, fled Virginia but was later picked up in Texas.
    • The Virginia State Police said in a statement, "Last week, the arrest of Jesse L. Matthew Jr., 32, of Charlottesville, Va., provided a significant break in (the Harrington) case with a new forensic link for state police investigators to pursue."
    • Morgan Harrington's mother Gil said, "We worked five years to get to this point, so we are relieved." She added that she and her husband Dan were "heartbroken" for the Graham family, saying, "We know what they're going through."
    • Metallica actively assisted in attempts to find Harrington for more than three years, starting almost immediately after her disappearance when frontman James Hetfield called Dan Harrington and asked what the band could do.
    • Hetfield did public service announcements for the FBI and the band added $50,000 to the $100,000 reward already offered by the Harringtons for information on their daughter's murder. The band also invested another $50,000 in a scholarship named in her memory.

    • BRAD PITT EXPLAINS WHY HE TRIES TO KEEP A LOW PROFILE

      Brad Pitt doesn't need a social media presence to maintain his status as one of the biggest movie stars in the world. The Oscar-winner appears in the new issue of British GQ where he explains why he won't get on board with Twitter.

      Brad tells the magazine, "Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately. And if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it...because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt. You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately. But now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it."

      • He also responds to George Clooney referring to him as "unreachable" saying, "Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as sh*t. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard...I’m a bit of a loner you know? I’m more quiet by nature. And coming from, you know, hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved."

    • DONALD TRUMP TRICKED ON TWITTER

      Donald Trump retweeted a photo of serial killers Fred and Rosemary West on Monday (September 29th) after a comedian named Philip Bradbury tricked him into it.

      Philip wrote, "Hi @realDonaldTrump. My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?" Trump obliged and upon realizing his mistake he wrote, "Some jerk fraudulently tweeted that his parents said I was a big inspiration to them pls RT-- out of kindness I retweeted. Maybe I'll sue. I thought I was being nice to somebody re their parents. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting. Sad!"

      • Fred and Rosemary West killed at least 11 girls in England in the 1970s. They were arrested in 1994 after police found the bones of one of their daughters. Fred killed himself in prison. Rose is serving a life sentence.

    • CELEBRITY GOSSIP

      LINDSAY LOHAN RESPONDS TO PLAY CRITICISM: Lindsay Lohan is taking the negative criticism of her debut stage performance in Speed-the-Plow with a grain of a salt. She recently chatted with UK's Daily Mirror about her nerves during the first preview performance last week saying, "It could've been a disaster, but it wasn't by far...I could've not turned up. But of course I didn't; it's my show...Everyone is always going to be judgmental, no matter what. I respect people have an opinion, but I'm doing the best I can and will for the duration. I was nervous on the first night because I'd never done it before. But everyone working on the show has been really great...they've all been very kind, gracious and comforting." Ticket sales for the show have reportedly not met expectations and were even being offered at a discounted rate on Groupon.

      WALMART TRIES TO BLAME TRACY MORGAN FOR HIS INJURIES IN NJ CRASH: Walmart has filed a response to Tracy Morgan's lawsuit over the car accident between his tour bus and one of their truck drivers back in June. Tracy is suing Walmart for negligence because the driver allegedly had not slept for over 24 hours before the crash. Walmart is countering the suit by claiming the injuries sustained by Tracy and other passengers were the result of not wearing a seatbelt. The court documents state, "By failing to exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts, upon information and belief, plaintiffs acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs' own best interests. The truck driver was charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto a few days after the accident.

      JOHN CUSACK BASHES HOLLYWOOD: John Cusack may have had a successful film career since the 80s but he acknowledges that Hollywood has a dark side. While promoting his new film, Maps to the Stars, he told UK's The Guardian, "I got another 15, 20 years before they say I'm old. For women it's brutal. Bruce Wagner's thing about if you're 26, you're menopausal? It's only absurd because it's a little bit further than the truth. I have actress friends who are being put out to pasture at 29. They just want to open up another can of hot 22. It's becoming almost like kiddie porn. It's f***ing weird." John went on to say, "People would look after you when I was a kid. There were good people in the business. When I came to L.A. Rob Reiner said: 'Come stay at my house.' He taught me. I worked with Al Pacino. Pacino would talk to you and mentor you. Now it's different. The culture just eats young actors up and spits them out. It's a hard thing to survive without finding safe harbor. You can't make it up. It's a whorehouse and people go mad."

      KATE MIDDLETON WILL RETURN TO WORK: Kate Middleton is set to return to duties as a royal next month after dealing with her severe morning sickness for the past several weeks. The mom-to-be apparently has events scheduled leading up to Christmas but the Palace will reportedly be reviewing her itinerary on a "day by day basis" before she can commit to attending. Kate recently had to pull out of a trip to Malta but Prince William went in her place.

      FELICITY HUFFMAN REVEALS SECRET TO MARRIAGE: Felicity Huffman dropped by HuffPost Live on Monday (September 29th) where she revealed the key to making her marriage work with William H. Macy. She explained, "Once a week we do sit down and make sure we take half an hour -- each person gets 15 minutes -- just to talk, with no crosstalk. I talk, then you talk. You kind of just deeply check in with the other person. When you have 15 minutes to talk --which is endless, by the way, and if you want to sit there in silence you can -- but when you have 15 minutes to talk, you kind of actually see what's going on with the other person without any talk-back." Felicity and William have been married since 1997. They have two daughters.

      'MODERN FAMILY' DIRECTOR CALLS OUT DRUNK PASSENGER ON FLIGHT: Emmy-winning Modern Family editor/director Ryan Case live-tweeted a terrible flying experience on Sunday (September 28th) while sitting behind a drunk passenger. The recap went on for 67 tweets which began, "Sitting behind the worst person in the world. She was watching Hawaii 5.0 so loudly in her earphones that her seat mate asked her to turn it down. Worst move he ever made…She apologized in the loudest, drunkest voice ever ‘SORRY ITS MY 1ST TIME NOT IN 1ST CLASS' & hasn't stopped talking since." Ryan highlighted some of the woman's most laughable moments including bragging about knowing David Guetta and wondering if saying 'My Arab Friends' is racist. The whole ordeal came to end when the flight landed and cops came to meet her at the gate.

    • AMANDA BYNES BUSTED FOR DUI AGAIN

      Amanda Bynes was arrested early on Sunday morning (September 28th) at around 3 AM for DUI. Amanda was charged with a misdemeanor after an officer determined her to be driving on a controlled substance which sources tell TMZ was allegedly weed.

      The former Nickelodeon star was taken to the station in Van Nuys, California and held on $15,000 bail. She was released the same day and is scheduled to appear in court on October 23rd.

      • Amanda was placed on probation for three years back in February from a prior DUI arrest from 2012. She has spent most of the last year in her parents care under a conservatorship after mental issues which took a turn in the summer of 2013.
      • TMZ is also reporting that the conservatorship ended earlier this month which reportedly prompted her to move into an apartment in Orange County, California and supposedly resume her weed habit.
