Vanna were burglarized recently in Atlanta. The band subsequently set up a Gofundme account for fans, to help recoup some of their lost possessions. The campaign has raised over 11,000 dollars so far. That's fine. That happens. But apparently, the next day, members of the band posted pictures of themselves gambling. Understandably, it made a lot of fans mad. A classic case of "Donor Beware," it seems. A pic of the incident is in the replies.
Apparently, Martin Shkreli is mulling over the idea of destroying the Wu-Tang Clan album he bought, or "installing it in some remote place."
"Shkreli says he vacillates between wanting to destroy the record and dreaming of installing it in some remote place so that people have to make a spiritual quest to listen." "I'm not just the heel of the music world," he told Vice. "I want to be the world's heel."
Martin Shrkeli's had quite a year, from marking up cancer drug prices to buying Wu-Tang Clan's one-of-a-kind Once Upon A Time In Shaolin to then telling the group to "show some f**king respect." But he'll be heading into the new year with his tail firmly planted between his legs, as he's been arrested for fraud.
The investigation, in which Mr. Shkreli has been charged with securities fraud, is related to his time as a hedge fund manager and running the biopharmaceutical company Retrophin ó not the price-gouging controversy that has swirled around him.
Sykes told NME that whether intentional or not, he finds it hard to believe Coldplay wouldnít have noticed the similarities. Definitely. 38-year-old Chris Martin totally seems like the kind of guy who stays up on all the latest Hot Topic bands and this was unquestionably a deliberate act of malice.
At a recent show in Toronto, guitarist Jeff Beckman of 90s Canadian hardcore punk band Chokehold (A389 Records) punched a transgender woman over her opinions regarding the singer's thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. The band has prided itself on opposing gender discrimination, racism, sexism, police brutality and so on in their lyrics. The incident calls into question the authenticity of self-proclaimed socially conscious bands. Head to the replies to hear audio from the event.
Since the new Sleeping With Sirens album dropped yesterday, people have finally gotten the chance to give it a full listen. Well, it didn't take people long to realize that the song "November" sounds an awful lot like We Are The In Crowd's "Long Live The Kids" from their Feldmann produced Weird Kids. Head to the replies to compare for yourself, but it's pretty blatant to me.
Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack didn't like being heckled at the band's show in Vancouver, BC. Hit the replies for some of the fan filmed footage where Andy leaps from the stage to go fight the heckler.
Jack White has penned a letter clarifying his tour rider that was recently published by the University of Oklahoma's college paper. It's in the replies.
first off, this is none of your business, but i have no specific demands in my dressing room. i know i could ask for lots of things but i actually dont ask for ANYTHING. i take with me what i need, and that aint much. anything on the rider is for the band and the crew. this "guacamole recipe" is my hilarious tour managers inside joke with the local promoters, itís his recipe, not mine. itís just something to break up the boredom, seeing who can make it best.
