  • A photo has surfaced online that could feature what appears to be Ghost frontman Papa Emeritus III without his trademark mask. The picture was posted on Twitter by Prong and Danzig member
    Tommy Victor and showed a group of musicians hanging out together after Ghost's show in New Orleans. Shown in the photo are Victor, Glenn Danzig, ex-White Zombie bassist Sean Yseult, former Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo and what appears to be Papa Emeritus III sans his costume.

    • The identities of the members of Ghost are a closely guarded secret, but it's believed that Papa is actually Swedish underground metal musician Tobias Forge, who played in a band called Repugnant.
    • While Papa has a distinctive look, the other five members of Ghost all wear the same demonic masks and are known only as Nameless Ghouls.
    • The group's origins are murky, but one of the Nameless Ghouls told us that the seed for Ghost was planted while he and two other Ghouls were in a different band: "We come from a collective of people where bands form and break and projects get started and, you know, amounts to nothing, and three of us in the band, we were in another band, and we were recording an album in 2006. And during a soundcheck, I basically came up with a riff that, 'this sounds kind of cool.' And after that little soundcheck, that riff just stuck." .

  • Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody took a few jabs at rapper Kanye West and social media during the band's recent performance at the Metal Allegiance festival in Chester, Pennsylvania. Moody started off by saying, "Let’s make one more statement, right now! F**k Kanye West. I f**kin’ said it and I don’t regret it." He then led the crowd in a "F**k Kanye West" chant before adding, "I’m gonna hear about that tomorrow on Facebook, and I really don’t give a s**t."

    Moody continued, "I know that social media has been eating me alive lately . . . The f**ked up thing about the Internet is somebody can say something and it can be completely f**king untrue and you still get to see it, which usually means it’s some 12-year-old kid in his grandmother’s basement who has nothing to do but masturbate and pop pimples. So I want to thank you all for standing next to us and being Five Finger Death Punch fans."

    • Moody was in the news recently when TMZ reported that his wife was filing for divorce and had accused the singer of domestic violence.
    • It was later revealed by the band’s management that Moody was not married to the woman in question and that she was not a credible source for information.
    • Guitarist Zoltan Bathory said about Moody in a French interview, "He's Jekyll and Hyde. He's that guy. One day he's your best friend, another day he's Hurricane Ivan, Category Five. He's a hand grenade with a loose pin. So he creates his own hell, so to speak."
    • Five Finger Death Punch just wrapped up a North American tour in support of its latest album, Got Your Six, and will head to Europe in a few weeks.

  • Foo Fighters are working on new music less than a year since releasing their ground-breaking 2014 album, Sonic HIghways. According to multiple reports, Dave Grohl announced he news during the band's set at the Austin City Limits festival over the weekend, telling the audience, "You know what I did last night . . . We recorded five f**king new songs in your beautiful city."

    Grohl also told the crowd that one of those tracks features rocker Ben Kweller, explaining, "Just by chance, I bumped into an old friend that I hadn’t seen in about 16 years, right as I was recording a vocal . . . and he starts f**king singing the most beautiful harmony to the thing I was singing. I was like, 'Get your ass in the vocal booth right now.'"

    • The band did not premiere any of the new material during its Austin City Limits set, with Grohl saying, "We're gonna give it to you! But not tonight."
    • Grohl has long acknowledged Austin as one of his favorite places, and the city was featured in the first season of the Foos' HBO series Sonic Highways, which followed the band as it recorded the album in eight different musical hotspots around the U.S.
    • There's no word yet on whether the songs that Grohl alluded to are for a new Foo Fighters album, or how and when they will be released to the public.
    • Grohl has said in recent interviews that there will be a second season of Sonic Highways, but no official information about that has been released yet either.
    • The Foos wrapped up their lengthy North American tour over the weekend and will head to Europe next month.

  • Metallica frontman James Hetfield has apparently confirmed that the band is in the studio recording the long-awaited follow-up to its 2008 album Death Magnetic. Speaking with EMGtv about his three signature ESP guitars, Hetfield revealed, "I tell ya, we're recording right now, and there's the number one guitar, there's the number two guitar, there's the number three. And here's the third-track guitars that just sound different. They all sound different."

    Hetfield did not clarify whether the group was actually laying down tracks for its 10th studio album, although the band members have said in various interviews that they've been writing for much of the past year. Bassist Robert Trujillo told us not long ago that the band was enjoying the writing process: "We're having a really amazing time. It's fun, it's a lot of hard work, it's like you're looking at that mountain of ideas and you're like, 'Okay, it's time to climb this beast and do what we've got to do.' I'd say we've pretty much exhausted our touring cycles, so we're really, really excited about nurturing the songs and bringing them to life and that's where we're at right now."

    • Drummer Lars Ulrich recently told RollingStone.com that Metallica had written close to 20 new songs for its new album, although he declined to offer a possible release date for the new CD.
    • He added that the band doesn't want to record in a way that feels "labored over and overthought."
    • Aside from touring, Metallica has spent much of the seven years since the release of Death Magnetic on other projects, including launching a music festival, collaborating on an album with the late Lou Reed and making a feature film.

  • Steven Tyler's legal reps have demanded that GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump stop using Aerosmith's 1973 breakthrough hit, "Dream On" at his campaign events. The Associated Press reported Tyler's attorneys sent a cease and desist letter to the campaign, claiming that Trump does "not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of Tyler’s other songs" and that it "gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid . . . We are unaware of any public performance license granting Trump for President the right to perform 'Dream On' in connection with the campaign. If Trump for President has any such license, please forward it to our attention immediately."

    Trump was given 24 hours to acknowledge receipt of the letter, with Tyler's team specifying: "If Trump for President does not comply with our demands, our client will be forced to pursue any and all legal or equitable remedies which our client may have against you."

    • Steven Tyler is a registered Republican and attended the first GOP debate back in August. The Hollywood Reporter posted that Tyler's attorney, Dina LaPolt, explained that Tyler's problem with Trump's use of the song goes beyond politics, and has to do with copyright control: "Steven works tirelessly with both Republicans and Democrats regarding copyright reform and his position has always been consistent regarding copyright and intellectual property. Simply, one must get permission from the music creators. Steven wrote 100 percent of ‘Dream On,’ and this is about the unauthorized use of his property."
    • According to The Reporter, Tyler and Trump are friendly: "Tyler was once a judge at Trump's Miss USA pageant and they reportedly once traveled to Russia together." Last month, Trump tweeted about attending an Aerosmith concert and raved about the show.
    • Both Neil Young and R.E.M. have publicly slammed Trump during the campaign for using their music at their events.

Owner Zach Neil told Downtown magazine, "It's not a college or frat bar, it's a classy artsy place that happens to have a Will Ferrell character-inspired art gallery and drink menu. We love Will Ferrell, we think he's incredibly funny and has been a constant source of joy for us since childhood. So when deciding what to do, it was like, 'I'd love a place where you could sit and drink a great cocktail, watch a funny movie and share conversation with people without blasting music in uncomfortable surroundings.'"

    • Cocktail names include Mugatu Mule, You're My Boy Blue!, Did We Just Become Best Friends?, The F*cking Catalina Wine Mixer, and many more.
