Godsmack's Sully Erna Slams Nikki Sixx: "He's Just an Old, Fat, Washed-Up Has-Be

Image Courtesy of Daniel E. CatulloThe feud between Godsmack frontman Sully Erna and Motley Crue and Sixx:AM bassist Nikki Sixx has been reignited. On Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta's podcast, The Jasta Show, Erna called Sixx an "old, fat washed-up has-been.""I don't know what his deal is, man, but I can just tell you that he is the most...I don't even know what the word is for it," Erna said. "I've never met anyone like that. He's just so pompous and egotistical and he feels like he's still on top of the world. He just thinks he's so relevant, and he's just an old, fat, washed-up has-been. He annoys me, and I don't even deal with it anymore. It's just lame."The bad blood between Erna and Sixx started boiling when Godsmack when opened for Motley Crue during the 2009 Crue Fest. Erna reportedly felt disrespected by the way Sixx treated him and the rest of Godsmack. The feud has been kept alive by various barbs on social media. In addition, Godsmack's 2010 single "Cryin' Like a B****" is heavily rumored to be about Sixx."This dude, the way he treats people, and his attitude towards everything, and how he struts around," Erna said on The Jasta Show. "And I don't even care about that, if you think you're still a huge rock star, then that's cool. But I'm a human being, and so is everybody else, and this band takes a lot of pride in how we treat people. Because we know we're musicians, but we're not rock stars, and we don't act like rock stars. And so I don't like it, man. I don't care if it even wasn't me. If I'd seen him treating someone else that way, I would have still had the same problem with him."Erna adds that he doesn't believe that Sixx plays his bass live, and that his bass tracks and backup vocals are all on the audio program Pro Tools.Godsmack just concluded the final leg of their tour in support of their latest album, 2014's 1000hp. Motley Crue, meanwhile, is in the home stretch of their farewell tour, which concludes in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve.Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Frontman Dan Auerbach tells Billboard that his band is "almost done with another record. It's really close.""The Arcs have a particular sound, or we're trying to," Auerbach says. "It's starting to, I guess, solidify a little bit, especially the more we play live together. I'm just hearing a new consistency, but it's still pulling from various types of places; it's what our record collections sound like, pretty much, so it's all over the place.""There's loud songs, fast songs but it's still dreamy and it still sounds like the Arcs," he continues.

Courtney Love's Cool with Justin Bieber's Nirvana Tee

Image Group LA/ABCYou can’t blame the guy for having good taste, but it might make a rock fan cringe to see someone like Justin Bieber wearing a Nirvana tee shirt.  He’s done it before, most recently at the American Music Awards last Sunday, when he was photographed wearing a vintage “Heart Shaped Box” shirt.You wouldn’t be alone in your criticism -- lots of folks considered it sacrilege, and gleefully jumped on the bash-Bieber bandwagon.  Courtney Love, however, isn’t one of them.  The singer and former Mrs. Kurt Cobain tweeted in the wake of the fallout, “You’re cool in my book, @justinbieber xc."For her part, Bieber’s stylist, Karla Welch, tells Harper’s Bazaar that her client’s a big fan of vintage band tees and has been wearing them for a while -- it’s just that people are only now starting to notice.  As for the fallout over the Nirvana tee, she says, “of course he's a fan of Nirvana. I think it's so funny that all these people are up in arms. I'm sure Kurt Cobain would be like -- I mean, I can't speak for him obviously -- but I don't think he was so snotty or that he would diss anyone who appreciated his music. I think he understood that that is like the antithesis of music appreciation. It's so funny. But you know, fans are fans!”If you don’t have any vintage Nirvana tees of your own and can’t find one at your local consignment store, you can always buy one like Bieber wore, from the place it got it.  That would be designer Jerry Lorenzo of Fear of God, who collects vintage rock tees, re-cuts them and then sells them online for rock star prices: a tee like Bieber’s will set you back about $1,500. Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Damon Albarn Denies Feud with Adele

"It's amazing how people will run with stuff that has no credence whatsoever and turn it into something and then watch the reaction."Rumblings of a feud between Albarn and Adele started when Albarn said that what he had heard from the singer's much-anticipated new album was "middle of the road," and that she's "very insecure." He added that he didn't think that the five tracks that he worked on with Adele would make the album -- which they didn't. Adele then responded by saying that her experience with Albarn was a "'don't meet your idol' moment.""I was number five on Twitter,' says Albarn about the ensuing controversy. "I mean, how pathetic is that?"Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Eagles of Death Metal Drummer Speaks Out About Paris Attacks: "I Am Forever Chan

Rick Kern/Getty ImagesEagles of Death Metal drummer Julian Dorio says he's been "forever changed" by the recent Paris terrorist attacks, which saw close to 100 people murdered at the Bataclan concert hall where the band was performing.In an Instagram post, Dorio writes, "I, along with my bandmates...had the privilege to play to one of the most energetic crowds of our tour when, nearly half way through the show, the unimaginable occurred. Absolute and unnecessary evil turned our world on its head. I am beyond grateful that I was able to find a way out of the venue, but I am mourning those who did not, including our mate, Nick Alexander. My thoughts are with their families."Dorio goes on to thank a variety of individuals who helped him on that horrible night of November 13. "I'm home safe. And now I have a new family abroad," he writes. "To Arthur, who ran for his life right beside me and selflessly put us in a taxi before himself, thank you. To Fabrice, a fan who lent me his phone later that night so I could call @emilydorio and attempt to put her at ease, thank you. To everyone who, in the face of unrelenting evil, went toe to toe using courage, compassion, and love as their weapons. You all are my heroes."Dorio finishes by stating, "Last but certainly not least, the outreach and support back home is appreciated more than you'll ever know. I will never forget it. I am forever changed but hold fast to the love around us. I'm counting down the days until I get to finish that concert. Peace & love."Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Metallica's Robert Trujillo Says "Jaco" Tells a "Life Story that Is So Important

Robert Trujillo/Passion PicturesMetallica bassist Robert Trujillo is the executive producer of Jaco, a documentary about legendary jazz bass player Jaco Pastorius. The film will be released on Blu-ray/DVD on Record Store Day Black Friday, November 27."He is my biggest influence," Trujillo tells ABC Radio of Pastorius. "I know there's a lot of Metallica fans out there, there's a lot of Suicidal Tendencies fans out there, and different bands that I've been involved with, and I felt that Jaco's story, beyond just being a great bass player, an incredible bass player, a genius of a musician, there's also a life story that is so important, and people should know about him."Trujillo saw Pastorius live in 1979, and it changed his life. It changed his entire perception of what a bass player could be, and greatly affected his approach to playing the instrument live."The bass was always the guy in the back who no one knows about, you know, keeping it together and holding it down," Trujillo explains. "Through Jaco, we realized that you can actually perform, you know? You can be a lead instrument, you can control the stage, you can actually have fun and escape those confines that you're supposed to have as a rhythm section player."Trujillo has been working on Jaco for the past six years, and it seemed that each year brought another serendipitous moment that led to the eventual finishing of the film. For example, legendary folk singer Joni Mitchell, who appears in Jaco, and worked with Pastorious on several albums, according to Trujillo, "unreachable for years" before he ran into her at a party."There's a lot of sort of miracles that have happened through the production of the film," he says. "Joni Mitchell coming on board year four, Jerry Jemmott, Jaco's favorite bass player, coming on board year three, three and a half, when nobody even knew if he was even alive. He's living in Alabama and he moves to Los Angeles two miles from my home."Along with Mitchell and Jemmott, Jaco is loaded with appearances from an eclectic group of musicians, including Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Carlos Santana, Rush's Geddy Lee and Sting. Flea also appears on the Jaco soundtrack as a part of Trujillo's Mass Mental collective. The group covered Pastorius' song "Come On Come Over" for the soundtrack, which was born from a spontaneous jam -- another "magical" moment in the making of Jaco."We just played, old school, jamming, funky, it was great," Trujillo remembers. "Then Flea started playing  'Come On Come Over,' the bass line, and we just went into a half-hour, psychedelic jam of that song, and what evolved is what you get. All of the sudden, it started to develop and kinda create itself."The Jaco soundtrack also will be released on Record Store Day Black Friday. Trujillo will be participating in an in-store signing at the Sound Garden record store in Syracuse, New York in celebration of the release. Along with working on the film, Trujillo is in the studio with Metallica, who are currently recording their first album since 2008's Death Magnetic."We're having fun, we're recording," Trujillo tells ABC Radio of the album's progress. "It's sounding heavy, and I am pleased and happy, and we're having a great time. It feels good to be working on an album for real. Hopefully next year we'll bless the universe with a new Metallica record."Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Creed's Scott Stapp Reviews "Creed Movie" for Funny or Die

Jordan, as he trains with Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa, and is not at all about the band Creed. Don't tell that to Scott Stapp, though.In a video for Funny or Die, Stapp reviews Creed for his fictional review show Can You Take Me to the Movies, a play on Creed's song "Can You Take Me Higher?""As Creed the movie unfolded, there wasn't much that resembled what happened in Creed the band," says Stapp in his review.  "This movie has a lot of boxing. One time I punched a guy from 311 but I never actually boxed.""Spoiler alert! Creed the movie has no epic guitar solos played on a mountaintop!" Stapp continues. "And at no point does Creed sing on a steep cliff! That's what we do best!"Despite his gripes with the film, Stapp still gives Creed the movie four out of five "arms wide open."Next year, Stapp will embark on the North American leg of his Proof of Life solo tour.Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Paris Resident Lenny Kravitz Writes About Bataclan Attack: "It Could Happen Anyw

Image Courtesy of Press Here PublicityLenny Kravitz is one of the more than two million people who call Paris home. In an op-ed on, Kravitz gave his thoughts on the November 13 terrorist attacks, where 89 people were killed inside the Bataclan concert hall during an Eagles of Death Metal show."Whether it was anybody I knew or not, it hit a chord with me and I'm deeply concerned," he writes. "I think at this point, it could happen anywhere. I live my life onstage and in venues and these things can happen. And they're being chosen as targets."Kravtiz feels a special connection to the Bataclan, too."I've played on the stage of the Bataclan. I've gone to concerts there," he says. "Back in the '90s, Alice in Chains were playing there and they invited me up onstage to jam with them. The last show I saw there was The Black Keys and I was up in the balcony. It's an institution."Kravitz wasn't in Paris at the time of the attacks -- he was in the Bahamas -- though he says he's "not worried about returning" to the City of Light."I was in New York for 9/11. Things bounced back," he says. "But in general, I think life is changing. You'll definitely think about it when you're sitting in a café or in a restaurant.""Obviously, we're talking about France and these people, but at the same time, these things are going on all over, in Lebanon, Syria, Africa," Kravitz continues. "I'm concerned about this on every level for everybody. It's not just 'pray for Paris' -- it's 'pray for the world.'"Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
