Here are some bright musical spots on the holiday radar this year, a bakers dozen to choose from.

Guns N' Roses Coachella 2016

The worst kept secret of the holiday season has finally been confirmed: Guns N’ Roses will be headlining the Saturday nights of the legendary Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and it will apparently be at least a partial reunion of the band’s most iconic lineup.

The headlining announcement was made on the evening of Monday, January 4, 2016, but did not come with the expected confirmation that the classic GnR lineup would be reuniting for the California music festival as had been rumored for months. The announcement was, however, closely followed up by the above image being displayed on the Axl Rose-led GnR Facebook page, which was then also posted to both guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan‘s respective social media sites.

Guns N' Roses Appetite For Destruction

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals, Guns N’ Roses‘s Appetite For Destruction is on sale in MP3 format for only $5. The CD is currently $8.49 and is an AutoRip, which means with the CD purchase you’ll also get a FREE MP3 download of the entire album.

This is the band’s debut album, released in 1987, and it happens to be one of the greatest hard rock records of all time! You absolutely know the songs “Welcome To The Jungle,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “Paradise City,” – take my word as a rock goddess, you should own this album. My favorites on this one (and watch out, I feel like naming all 12 songs): “Rocket Queen,” “It’s So Easy,” “You’re Crazy,” “Out Ta Get Me,” “Anything Goes” – all amazing. Seriously, own this.

Interview: Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal

Before joining one of the biggest bands in the history of rock ‘n’ roll, Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal played with everyone from Lita Ford to Ty Tabor (King’s X) to, erm, Jessica Simpson, as well as having a successful solo career.

Not only that, New York native Bumblefoot has been putting his status as one of the world’s premier rock guitarists to a much more personal affect and runs teaching workshops all over the world (even private ones via Skype if you ask nicely).

More recently he has been involved in A World With Heroes, a KISS tribute album created by rock journalist Mitch Lafon raising money for a Canadian cancer hospice. Along with Rex Brown (ex-Pantera) and Brian Tichy (ex-Whitesnake), they came together to record the classic “Detroit Rock City” and the band ALIVE was born.

Geeks of Doom: How did you get involved with A World With Heroes?

Bumblefoot: When Mitch Lafon was first considering doing this album, we chatted about it. I think before he even went public I had already recorded my guitar and vocals. Mitch played matchmaker and reached out to Brian Tichy and Rex Brown for drums and bass.

Geeks of Doom: Were you allowed to go in your own direction to record “Detroit Rock City” or did you try and stick closely to the original song?

Bumblefoot: I stuck to the original. It couldn’t ever be improved upon, I’m not going to try and re-write the song. I added a little of my own guitar doodling at the end, but other than that we all kept it traditional.

Music Review: Slash ‘Apocalyptic Love’

Apocalyptic Love

Apocalyptic Love
Slash feat. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators
CD | Deluxe CD | MP3 | Vinyl*
Label: Dik Hayd
Release Date: May 22, 2012

The musicians that made up one of America’s greatest rock bands of all time, Guns N’ Roses, have had problems finding their way after that band fell apart. Each of them has tried solo acts with varying degrees of success. Axl Rose, maintaining ownership of the band’s name, has even attempted a new album and tour with new musicians. The album that Rose crafted took many years to complete and it ended up being mediocre. Slash’s first attempt at creating a new band with some of his GN’R band mates was Slash’s Snakepit. The music featured Slash’s razor-sharp riffs, but it lacked the heart of GN’R at their best. Slash’s second attempt at building something with his GN’R buddies was a new band that featured Scott Weiland from Stone Temple Pilots on vocals. While the lead singer of an alternative rock band doesn’t seem to make sense fronting a classic hard rock band, it really worked for the debut album. The music was truly modernized hard rock. After that fantastic release the follow up, with a different singer, was weak.

This is the band’s debut album, released in 1987, and it happens to be one of the greatest hard rock records of all time! You absolutely know the songs “Welcome To The Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and possibly even “Paradise City,” so there you go, justification that the three bucks is worth spending on this album – though, my word as a rock goddess should be enough. My favorites on this one (and watch out, I feel like naming all 12 songs): “Rocket Queen,” “It’s So Easy,” “You’re Crazy,” “Out Ta Get Me,” “Anything Goes” – all amazing. Seriously, own this.

Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Slash’s First Horror Flick Picked Up By Anchor Bay

The Movie God   |  @   |

Slasher Films

Anchor Bay has acquired a movie titled Nothing to Fear, the first to be produced by Slasher Films, which was started by legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash along with Rob Eric and Michael Williams.

The movie follows a family who makes that always dangerous horror movie decision to start fresh in a small town. This particular small town happens to be an actual town in Kansas called Stull. The town has about 20 residents and a decades old legend that one of the seven gateways to hell is located in its small cemetery, and that the Devil himself comes out to walk the Earth a couple of times a year there. Seeing as how it’s not likely you’ll bump into Satan hanging out in Kansas, it makes plenty of sense to bring the legend to life through film.

Is ‘Master Of Puppets’ By Metallica The ‘Top Metal Song Of All Time’?
space
cGt2099   |

Master of PuppetsThe official website for Gibson guitars has released what they perceive to be the top 50 metal songs of all time. Gibson.com’s writers and editors worked on compiling the list over several weeks, releasing 10 entries at a time, and recently released the top 10, which declared the number one metal song to be “Master of Puppets” by Metallica.

In some ways, the number one spot for Metallica is fitting, considering 2011 is the 25th anniversary of the release of their Master of Puppets album. Having said that though, metalheads are notorious for having fierce and strong opinions about what they consider to be their “top songs,” on top of their fierce and strong opinions about what bands are or are not even metal.
