It would not be much of a Halloween-themed maze at an amusement park without its signature scares and monsters. And what better place to experience that than at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, with Universal’s own classic monsters?
The studio will also be working with its film production partner Blumhouse for two all new scared-filled mazes based on Unfriended and Truth or Dare. More on the story below.
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.
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.

"We weren’t even given credit as musicians. People thought we were fuckin’ wankers…"
– Eddie Clarke, MotÃ¶rhead
There are many seminal albums that have stayed the course of the Metal genre over the years, but very few have reached across multiple genres becoming such a cornerstone in music history as MotÃ¶rhead‘s Ace of Spades. The 1980 release was hugely prominent in its day, but is perhaps more so as time goes on.
While their albums Overkill and Bomber put MotÃ¶rhead on the map, it was Ace of Spades that catapulted them to international stardom (or notoriety). The band was led by the god known only as Lemmy, and joined by guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke and backed by Phil “The Animal” Taylor (responsible for the invention of using double bass drum in metal songs).
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.
