Double your Dollar Days

Slash(1-1406047604)From VH1 Radio Network: On Today (7/23), Slash turns 49 years old.  During his lifetime, he’s made quite a name for himself and has gone on to become a legendary guitarist.  So what advice does the rocker have for musicians who are trying to become as successful as him?  He gave us some pearls of wisdom.  

 “God, if I knew the answer to that one, you know, I could make a fortune selling books about it.  But when it comes to giving advice to fans, It’s really, you know, you just have to stick to your guns and try and maintain your sense of integrity, be prepared for failure and being able to get up and go back and do it again.  And you have to be smart, figure out how you’re going to navigate this landscape that is the music industry and figure out how you’re going to figure out your way better than the next guy to get from point A to point B.” 

Slash has the night off on his birthday, but a few nights later he’ll be playing in Illinois as part of the Let Rock Rule Tour with Aerosmith.  Get all his dates at Slash was born Saul Hudson in Hampstead, London, England.   What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?

Scott Weiland is up for reuniting with Velvet Revolver, but only for a few gigs and just to make a fast buck.  The singer, who was fired from the band in 2008, told Canadian newspaper La Presse that he has no issues with the members of Velvet Revolver, adding,“I even called the guys to propose the idea of doing some shows together in a few months.  We are on good terms, but I do not want to be a member of Velvet Revolver full-time.  If possible, I would like to only play at festivals.  You know, to make easy money.”  Scott knows it’s wishful thinking though since he said his former bandmates are busy and seemingly not as strapped for cash as he is.  Read more at Scott is making some money – he’s touring with his new band, the Wildabouts.

Rocket Reel Movie Moment

From VH1 Radio Networks:

sexyIt seems like rock and roll and sex go hand in hand, so Playboy reached out to some rockers for a couple tips in bed.

Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano’s suggestion for men is, “You have to be confident and secure with yourself before any lady can feel confident and secure in your company.” 

 Meanwhile, Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson says the women he spends time with understand he is a touring musician and it will likely be a one-night stand, and that some women at his shows are looking for that.

And Slayer’s Kerry King told a story about bringing a woman back to his room and her refusing to make a sex tape with him.  He was totally confused about what she was talking about until he saw bandmate Tom Araya in the room with a video camera.

Read more at If you are seeking some real sex tips, and have some for the guys and and can help the ladies.  Do you think rockers would have good sex tips?

tedFrom ABC 1-on-1: Ted Nugent has just released his first studio album in seven years, ShutUp&Jam!, which features raging slabs of blistering blues-infused and hard-rock riffs.  The record finds the outspoken right-wing rocker paying tribute to military heroes, touting the freedoms offered American citizens and declaring his love for good, old-fashioned barbecue, while also sharing his desire to simply keep rocking out.

Nugent tells ABC News Radio that all of his “musical dreams came true on this record,” because he had the chance to collaborate with some of his favorite musicians.

One of the tracks on ShutUp&Jam!, “She’s Gone,” is a duet with his old friend Sammy Hagar.  Ted says he’d wanted to record something with Hagar for years, but they could never coordinate their busy schedules.  Nugent notes that the historic collaboration finally happened earlier this year when he was laid up after undergoing a double knee-replacement surgery.

From VH1 Radio Networks: Judas Priest’s latest album, Redeemer of Souls, sold about 32-thousand copies in its first week out, landing at number six on the Billboard 200, the band’s highest debut ever. In fact, Redeemer of Souls is the group’s first album to ever debut in the top ten. However, their last record, 2008’s Nostradamus, sold more units – 42-thousand – but only made it to number 11.    If you haven’t yet, pick up Redeemer of Souls today. The band’s most successful album to date is 1982’s Screaming for Vengeance, which spent 53 weeks on the charts.  Did you buy Redeemer of Souls? Will we see you at the show Novembers 8th?

Oh, and would you like top grab your tickets a bit earlier with a venue pre-sale???



420 Stupid Criminal

From ABC News Network:

blinkThere have been plenty of rumors but now there’s word from the band itself: a new Blink-182 album is in the works, though the process is just in the early stages.

On frontman Tom DeLonge‘s official Instagram page is a funny picture of what looks to be high school-era shots of all three guys — DeLonge, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus – along with the long-awaited news: “Rehearsals start today… And yes there will be a new album #SorryForTheWait #Blink”

As you might imagine, the response from fans was immediate and ecstatic. Shout-backs ranged from “OMGOMGOMG” to “IVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG,” and cheers in various languages.

Blink-182 recently announced a show at O2 Academy Brixton in London on August 6. The band’s last studio album was 2011′s Neighborhoods.
