GRETA VAN FLEET Has A Fan In ROBERT PLANT

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

According to The Pulse Of Radio, GRETA VAN FLEET has a fan in legendary singer Robert Plant. The LED ZEPPELIN frontman told Louisville radio station 91.9 WFPK that he's heard the young Michigan-based group, saying that vocalist Josh Kiszka is "pretty good... There's a job out there for him." The irony is that GRETA VAN FLEET's sound has been compared to ZEPPELIN, with Kiszka's voice similar to Plant's and the musical style close as well. Josh and his brother, guitarist Jake Kiszka, told The Pulse Of Radio that the band's chart-topping first single, "Highway Tune", was a tribute to all the rock music they grew up listening to. "When we first realized that we had to be writing our own material, and we really wanted to, you know, I sat down and wrote the riff," Jake said. Josh added: "Jake kind of did the riff and I threw some vocals in there and it was kind of really an ode to that appreciation for rock 'n' roll music at its, you know, finest." GRETA VAN FLEET rocketed to the top of the rock radio charts last year with "Highway Tune". The track is taken from the quartet's debut EP, "Black Smoke Rising", which came out last April. Their latest single is "Safari Song". The Michigan-based group is reportedly working on its first full-length LP and will head out on a European tour this March. The band is confirmed to appear at this year's edition of the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival, which will be held on April 13 through April 15 and again with the exact same bill on April 20 through April 22 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California. More headlining and festival dates will follow in late April, May and June.

Ex-KISS Guitarist VINNIE VINCENT: 'I Was In Hell For 20 Years'

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

Former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent took part in another question-and-answer session on Saturday (January 20) at the Atlanta Kiss Expo. You can now watch video footage of the discussion in two parts below (courtesy of Mike Brunn). Asked what led to his departure from KISS after the "Lick It Up" touring cycle came to an end, Vincent said: "The problem was really simple. I was writing a lot of songs, and I felt us growing so much as a band, and I wanted them to want me. I know they wanted Eric [Carr, drums] — they loved Eric — but I didn't feel that they wanted me. Even after 'Lick It Up', the perception of it was that it was a big album, and I still felt, 'No matter what I do, they're just not gonna want me in this band.' And there was a contract they wanted me to sign. But I was bringing… My take-home pay was 550 dollars a week, so I never made any money being in the band. From the beginning to the end, it was 550 dollars a week; that's what they paid me. That was my take-home after taxes." According to Vinnie, he was only asking for a bare minimum so that he could support himself and his family. "This was my dream to be in this band," he said. "I didn't want anything as much as I wanted this. Maybe just a little bit so I can buy a house or something. Maybe I could buy a nice car. But that wasn't gonna happen. And there was a contract that they wanted me to sign — it was an employment contract — and there was literally nothing in it for me. I had a family. I had twins that I didn't know I was gonna have, and there was no money to take care of them, and there was no money to buy a home. We were living with relatives, and I was on call 24 hours a day, which was okay — it was all okay. But I couldn't move on; there was no future. There was the future of being Vinnie Vincent of KISS and what that was, but, financially, there was no future in it for me. And I didn't want to be a royalty member, although that would have been nice. But that's not what I asked for. I just asked for something that could take me out of living in an apartment or with my relatives, and maybe a nice car instead of driving around in a car the size of a can of tuna. And while I'm on the road, I've got a family, I've got little children. I wanted to know that they were well taken care of and at least that some of my value, my worth to them would have been special to them and said, 'Look, we can afford to make this work for you,' and they just didn't." Vincent said that everything came to a head at the end of "Lick It Up" tour when "the pressure" on him "was so, so, so unbearable to sign" the contract which was presented to him, which he described as "all for us and none for Vinnie. I said, 'I can't, I can't, I can't. Just please treat me better than this and everything will be fine,'" he recalled. "There was nothing. I never saw any royalties during the time I was in the band; it was just a paycheck, that I took home 550 bucks a week. So after the 'Lick It Up' tour was a success and I'm thinking, 'We have a great band. This is a new chapter. This is now…' The makeup came off. This was probably for Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley] a really difficult time, because the makeup was what the band was. To remove it, I think, was a bit of a relief. This is my opinion — it was a bit of a relief, but [there was also] a bit of fear, trepidation, because you didn't know what was coming. But 'Lick It Up' said, even with Vinnie, this worked. The songs were great, the reception was great, the tours were great. And at the end of the 'Lick It Up' tour, I remember… The last thing we said to each other was, 'We're gonna record a new record. Come back in about two months with your new songs.' Everybody said, 'Well, see you then. We're all gonna record our new songs, demo them, bring them together and see what we've got for the new record.' I recorded and demoed [future VINNIE VINCENT INVASION songs] 'Boyz Are Gonna Rock', 'Shoot U Full Of Love', 'No Substitute', 'Animal' and 'Twisted'. Those were the five songs that I wrote that I was gonna bring back. They were demoed, and I said, 'This is gonna be one hell of a KISS record, and I think they're gonna love them.' So they asked me to come back, and I said, 'I wanna come back, but I've got to survive. I can't survive on this. And I'm coming back with a great album. Can't we make this work?' And, unfortunately, the answer was no. 'Unless you sign the contract, you can't come back.' And I said, 'You know what? This is gonna break my heart. I can't come back.' So then, about a month later, in May of '84, they sent me a letter saying, 'Well, you're fired.' I guess it was redundant because I already said I wasn't coming back if you can't make this work. And that's what happened. And it broke my heart." Vincent also talked about his "20-year-lawsuit" against his former bandmates, alleging unpaid songwriting royalties. He said: "It could have all been avoided. It was senseless, because there were millions of dollars in warranties. And I tried for four fucking years — from '91 to '97 — to say, 'Can't we just work something out?' This wasn't something I wanted to do; this was the last thing I wanted to do. But right is right, and I'm willing to… Just show me some humanity, just a little compassion. Maybe just help me out — settle with me. Just something to make all of this just have been worth it for me. And they said 'no.' And they hurt me deeply — deeply, deeply, deeply, fucking deeply — and there was nowhere to go but to file this lawsuit. "The miracle that I survived that lawsuit was probably as miraculous as surviving what happened to me in 1984," he added. "And I just put it behind me. We eventually settled everything that we had between us, all the problems, about seven years ago. But I was in hell for 20 years, and it was my hell — nobody knew it. And I saw the world going by, I saw what everybody was saying about me, I saw what everybody in the band was saying about me, and I said, 'What a shame. What a shame.' There was no reason for it. I mean, we could have had — in my opinion — such a fucking great band. We still can, we still can, because that magic never ends. I still love them. I mean, it's never gonna go away. So when you respect — and I do dearly respect Gene and Paul with all my heart; I love them and I always will. They gave me this. With the good came the bad. But the magic that we have together never dies." Vincent said that he had a fond recollection of his last collaboration with KISS, which happened when he was brought in to co-write "Unholy", "Heart Of Chrome" and "I Just Wanna" for the band's 1992 album, "Revenge". "I didn't see them from '84 to '91," he said. "'91 was our first meeting again after VINNIE VINCENT INVASION. And Gene said, 'We're recording a new record.' I think I saw Gene in a recording studio. 'Give us a call. Let's work together.' And I said, 'Ah, I'd love to see you.' And then 'Revenge' happened and those songs. And I said, 'This is the moment. This is the band. This is it.' 'Unholy' was Gene and I; that was our baby. Paul and I wrote two songs, and we worked together for a year on that record. And it was another fun time. I mean, every time we worked together, it was just a joy. The magic, it's something that I can't put into words. 'Magic' is not the right word for it, because it's electric when you just… Something that happens when you plug in something and there's electricity here and it just works. So it turned out to be a great record and a lot of music that I'm proud of." Vinnie Vincent joined KISS in 1982, replacing Ace Frehley. As the "Ankh Warrior," he toured with the group in support of "Creatures Of The Night", on which he played lead guitar on six songs prior to becoming an official member of the band. From there, KISS wrote and released "Lick It Up" — their first album without makeup — in 1983, a recording on which Vincent co-wrote eight of 10 songs, including the title track, which remains a staple of the group's live performances to this day. In recent years, Vincent has been the subject of a number of rumors about his gender identity, including that he has been cross-dressing and that he has undergone a sex change. Last year, Vincent was the focus of a Swedish TV documentary called "KISS Och Gitarristen Som Försvann" ("KISS And The Guitarist Who Disappeared") which apparently tried, unsuccessfully, to track Vinnie down and get him to sit down for an interview.

Saigon Kick definitely ranks as one of the more interesting bands of their era, as any one of their fans is sure to tell you.

Fusing elements of sleaze, glam, alternative, pop, and everything in between, their sound is a “melting pot” of rock sounds. The group peaked on their …

ROBERT PLANT On Possibility Of Recording With JIMMY PAGE Again: 'It's Not Even Within My Countenance To Imagine It'

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

In a brand new interview with the Louisville, Kentucky radio station 91.9 WFPK, LED ZEPPELIN legend Robert Plant was asked if he could ever see himself recording with Jimmy Page again. "I have no idea," he said (hear audio below). "It's not even within my countenance to imagine it, really." After DJ Kyle Meredith pointed out that LED ZEPPELIN is still "near and dear to the hearts" of the band's fans, Plant replied: "Me too — nobody more than me. But I don't wanna do it a disservice either." LED ZEPPELIN hasn't performed together in almost a decade, having last played London's O2 Arena in December 2007. The concert was part of the Ahmet Ertegun tribute event, which was chronicled on the band's 2012 "Celebration Day" CD and DVD. The set, which featured Jason Bonham subbing for his late father John Bonham on drums, marked Plant, Page and Paul Jones's first full-scale concert together since John Bonham's 1980 death. Last October, Robert shot down the possibility of a LED ZEPPELIN reunion, telling the Daily Telegraph that "you can't ever really go back." He added: "It's tough enough repeating yourself with something that's a year old, never mind forty-nine years old. I've got to keep moving." Plant has arguably been the lone holdout for another LED ZEPPELIN reunion. Despite promoter-led attempts to get the band to reform for a series of concerts, Plant remains committed to his new musical direction in the roots and blues-based "Americana" field. Robert's eleventh solo album, "Carry Fire", was released in October via Nonesuch/Warner.

SHANE EMBURY Says Next NAPALM DEATH Album 'Will Be The Most Diverse Yet'

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

Christina Rowatt of Australia's The Void recently conducted an interview with bassist Shane Embury of British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH. You can watch the entire chat below. A few excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On the status of the next NAPALM DEATH studio album, which is tentatively due in 2018: Shane: "We started recording some new stuff, four or five weeks ago. We got quite a lot of songs. Hopefully, we will be carrying on in the new year. It will take a while to get finished. It's fast, but there's also a lot of some, I don't want to say 'experimental,' but hopefully once it's done it will go in a few different directions. I don't want to say noise, but there will be some stuff like that, a couple of mid-paced, kind of KILLING JOKE-influenced [songs]. Hopefully we'll veer off in a few directions and it will make the album… it will still be abrasive, but not constantly fast all the time. There is some extremely fast stuff, but we've all been kind of like ticking away at every album, trying a little bit of that and little bit of that, so each step, this one will be the most diverse yet, I hope. On maintaining an element of diversity in NAPALM DEATH's songwriting: Shane: "On the last album [2015's 'Apex Predator - Easy Meat'] we started with a really strange, slow, SWANS-influenced track. Not everyone liked it, but I think actually, most people did like it, but the record label was, like, 'Oh, you can't start an album with four minutes of this.' [I said] 'If you don't like it, just press skip.' [Nowadays], most of the bloody kids like Spotify, so why bother being pressured. They'll just change the track if they didn't like it anyway. I'm not going to say, 'Just because our A&R guy doesn't like it, I'm not going to start an album with this track.' That's kind of the wrong reason, isn't it?" On whether an attitude of defiance is an essential element of NAPALM DEATH and grindcore as a whole: Shane: "I think so. It's also a part of your personality, probably a little bit as well. When I was tape-trading before I joined NAPALM and I was forming bands that we did and whatever, I liked the fact that I was into stuff that people didn't immediately get, you know? All my metal buddies. I come from a heavy metal/rock background, but as I went further and further than what my friends did, so I'd get a kick out of the fact that they didn't understand it. That was funny to me. I thought, 'Why don't you understand it?'" On who he thinks are the originators of grindcore: Shane: "NAPALM DEATH was a band that when they first started, they weren't very grindcore at all in '81, '82, '83 period, they were more anarcho-punk. They were early NAPALM DEATH. It was only '86 when it started to get really fast and that was due to bands like SIEGE and the Boston hardcore scene. They were also mixing it up with stuff like CELTIC FROST from Switzerland. On whether he and vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway can detect what each other are thinking while composing songs: Shane: "I wouldn't say that. We're quite different. Me and Barn, we're chalk and cheese. He's very outspoken, political. I tend to not comment on any of it. I think with NAPALM DEATH, especially when you're coming into a band, the fact there's not an original member in the band anymore, that's a big point. I've been there since almost [NAPALM's 1987 debut album] 'Scum' came out. I should have played on it, didn't, big regret. But I was offered, but didn't, so that's the only big regret for me because that would have silenced all those people who say, 'You're not really an original member, are you?' But the band sets itself up as a very political kind of band, but I come from a metal background, but yeah, I have particular morals and thoughts about the world, but I'm all about the music. I'm all about making extreme music and making sounds. I got into SLADE, SWEET, JUDAS PRIEST, SABBATH, then I got into grindcore, then I started listening to SONIC YOUTH, PIXIES and MY BLOODY VALENTINE and I like to bring it all together. I'm all about sound. That's my thing. Barney, that's his thing. I don't disagree with him, but that's his thing. My thing is the music and the sounds and the sonics. I'd say we balance [each other], I think." NAPALM DEATH will release a special 2CD, 2LP and digital-download compilation titled "Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs" in March 2018 via Century Media Records. This special collection will include a total of 31 songs with a playing time of over 90 minutes, compiling rarities and exclusive earworms spanning 2004-2016 from the whirling gene pool of noise that is NAPALM DEATH. "Apex Predator - Easy Meat" was released in January 2015 via Century Media Records.

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

Thrash metal pioneers MEGADETH will celebrate their 35th anniversary all year long, with special releases, exclusive merch items, and one-of-a-kind events and opportunities for fans worldwide. Founder Dave Mustaine will also celebrate the band's anniversary on his weekly radio show. MEGADETH's announcement comes two years to the day since the release of the band's acclaimed, Grammy-winning album "Dystopia", which arrived on January 22, 2016. "When I started MEGADETH, I didn't imagine myself living for 35 years, let alone my band reaching this incredible milestone," says Mustaine. "Thanks to almost everyone I've met, worked, and played with these last three and a half decades." Kicking off the celebration, MEGADETH's new music video for "Lying In State" launches on Megadeth.com today exclusively for Megadeth Cyber Army members. MEGADETH is offering discounted Premium Cyber Army membership starting today at through January 31 at 11:59 p.m. PST. In MEGADETH's webstore, all "Dystopia" items are specially priced for two weeks, beginning today. Throughout the year, Mustaine will also celebrate the band's anniversary on his weekly Gimme Radio show, "The Dave Mustaine Show", which premieres each Thursday at 12 p.m. PST / 3 p.m. EST, with exclusive giveaways, contests, and behind-the-scenes stories about his career and MEGADETH. Fans can tune in and communicate directly with Dave in the Gimme Live chat feed at GimmeRadio.com or via the Gimme Radio app. MEGADETH is tentatively planning to enter the studio in mid-2018 to begin recording its new album for a 2019 release. Mustaine revealed on Twitter that he is in the process of "collecting ideas" for the follow-up to "Dystopia". MEGADETH's upcoming effort will mark the group's first release to feature drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who officially joined the group a year and a half ago. "Dystopia" was MEGADETH's first album with Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA.

PEARL JAM Announces Seattle 'Home Shows' To Fight Homelessness

by @ BLABBERMOUTH.NET

PEARL JAM will play two headlining shows on August 8 and August 10 in Seattle at Safeco Field. The "Home Shows" mark PEARL JAM's first hometown appearance in five years, plus the largest headlining concert event in Seattle since THE ROLLING STONES' two-night stint at the Kingdome in 1981. In addition to bringing nearly 100,000 fans from around the world together, the "Home Shows" will spotlight efforts across the city and King County to address the region's homelessness issue. PEARL JAM is pledging a minimum of $1 million toward local homelessness initiatives. They challenge everyone to join them — with the goal of raising a minimum of $10 million pledged toward addressing homelessness in 2018. The band is researching a wide range of programs to address Seattle-area homelessness in varied ways with a plan to announce specific beneficiaries closer to the show dates. PEARL JAM's Stone Gossard explains: "Seattle is our hometown. When there are challenges here, we want to be part of the solution. It's heartening so many organizations and individuals coming together to do the same. It's going to take all of us." PEARL JAM joins a growing list of area businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and members of the creative community who are collaborating to tackle the biggest public health crisis to hit our community in recent history. Partners to date include City of Seattle, Seattle Mariners, Starbucks, Amazon, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Port of Seattle, Visit Seattle, KISW, 107.7 The End, KEXP and the Schultz Family Foundation. "We must have everyone in the fight to solve homelessness including our local government, caring philanthropists, community organizations, individuals, and artists — all are dedicated to finding innovative long-term solutions to homelessness. I can't wait to join this iconic Seattle band in August," said Mayor Durkan. "This region nurtured ideas that changed the world. Imagine what we can accomplish by combining that spirit of innovation with collaboration across all segments of our community. The Mariners are proud to join with PEARL JAM and partners across King County to help find creative solutions to this region-wide crisis," said John Stanton, Seattle Mariners chair and managing partner. Ticket sale information will be announced in the coming days.
