Wayne's World Almost Cut Bohemian Rhapsody For This Other Band's Song

5 September 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

No Bohemian Rhapsody! Denied. It's hard to imagine certain scenes being omitted or drastically altered in certain movies. Such is the case for the "Bohemian Rhapsody" scene in Wayne's World. It's such an iconic moment in the film and it's really hard to imagine any other song being blasted through the speakers of that car while all passengers and driver lip-synced their hearts out. But Mike Myers has succeeded in creating a blurry but altered mental picture by revealing that a Guns 'n Roses song might have been used instead. Via TheSoundLA, Mike Myers joined Marc Maron on the Wtf podcast to talk a bit about his career. That included making Wayne's World happen on Saturday Night Live and the reveal that Myers had to fight "very, very hard" to get "Bohemian Rhapsody" into the movie for that scene. "They wanted Guns N' Roses," Myers told Maron. "Guns N' Roses »

18 Things Only Slash Fans Will Understand

22 August 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b6/Madrid-Slash_(2011).jpg

If the apocalypse ever actually does happen there’ll be a few things that are left intact; one being the long hair, hat n’ glasses combo of Saul ‘Slash’ Hudson, standing knees bent with a Les Paul resting low in his hands as he plays some sonically-awesome population-reviving solo.

The man is immortal – or at least it definitely feels that way. Having gone from changing the face of rock n’ roll along with Axl Rose and the other members of Guns n’ Roses the band slowly fell apart, but it didn’t even remotely stop there. Following GnR Slash released a couple of albums with different lineups under the title of ‘Slash’s Snakepit’; themselves packed to the brim with tight riffage and some brilliantly experimental solos.

Rounding the bend to meet back up with his former bandmates, fans worldwide »

6 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Lana Del Rey: 'I've Slept With a Lot of Guys in the Industry'

23 July 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lana Del Rey gets real about sleeping with 'a lot of guys' in the music business.

Lana Del Rey clearly had no filter in a new interview with Complex magazine for their August/September issue, in which the controversial singer admits to sleeping with "a lot of guys" in the music industry.

When talking about her new song "F*cked My Way Up To The Top," Lana, 29, pretty much admits the song title is literal -- only she didn't even get any of the perceived benefits.

"It's commentary, like, 'I know what you think of me,' and I’m alluding to that," she says. "You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”

Lana was previously engaged to musician Barrie-James O'Neil and was rumored to have »

Nicolas Cage Wore a Nicolas Cage T-Shirt to a Guns N' Roses Concert

9 June 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Nicolas Cage's offscreen persona has become the subject of multiple Internet memes and even a running joke on Saturday Night Live, but he may have outdone himself in the silliness department this time. The actor was spotted backstage at a Guns N' Roses concert while holding a cane and wearing a cowboy hat, leather chaps, a purple fringed coat, and what appeared to be a t-shirt with his own face on it. The snap also showed Nicolas chatting with Andrew Dice Clay, who was wearing one of his trademark outlandish outfits. Nic later joined the band on stage for their last bow, so his strange ensemble may have been just for show. Now all he needs to do is pull a Macaulay Culkin and take this Nic Cage-on-Nic Cage photo to the next level. Source: Instagram user gunsnroses »

Nicolas Cage Wears a Shirt with His Picture on It

9 June 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the most frequently asked Nicolas Cage questions (Fancq's) remains, is he in on the joke? Does he know about the memes? The videos? His strange second life as an Internet celebrity? This shirt is Exhibit A in the argument that, yes, Cage knows exactly what's going on. Guns N' Roses (at this point, Axl Rose and a rotating cast of stringers, including, coincidentally, a former member of The Replacements) posted this picture on Instagram after the group's June 7 show at the The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In case most of your synapses have fried, it's »

Axl rose from the famous band Guns N' Roses is elated on being listed amongst world.s top singers on a chart posted by ConcertHotels.com.

"Big thanks to all the fans and media for the props reacting to the Spin top vocalists article," Rose's responded with a letter.

"From what I could tell, the original article was for the most part only talking about the professionally recorded vocal range of the singers they compared calling the entire group 'The World's Greatest Singers.' It's very flattering and humbling to be included in such an illustrious ensemble."

As for whom he would consider the greatest, Rose wrote, "I'd say first that I don't know there's a definitive answer as in my opinion it's subjective, and second that my focus is primarily rock singers."

Axl Rose Sounds Off on "World's Greatest Singers" List: It's "Flattering and Humbling" to Be Included

28 May 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Axl Rose isn't using any illusion when it comes to being on a list of the "world's greatest singers." The Guns N' Roses frontman, whose vocal range was deemed the most expansive of all on a chart posted by ConcertHotels.com—a chart that debunkers were swift to point out was not trying to say that Rose himself was the best singer in the world—has responded to the hype in a letter to Spin. The music mag was one of many outlets that was marveling over the analysis of which artists supposedly have bigger ranges than others, with Rose's range topping those of Mariah Carey, Prince, Steven Tyler and 73 other artists.

So Axl Rose Is a Better Singer Than Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Marvin Gaye and Elvis According to This Chart...

21 May 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Apparently no one sounds sweeter than Axl Rose. At least according to Concert Hotels, which has placed the Guns N Roses frontman atop its new list of the Vocal Ranges of the World's Greatest Singers. Oh, sweet child o' mine! According to the site's chart, which purports to line up the various vocalists according to vocal range, high notes and low notes hit in their respective songs, Rose's voice out-stretches that of top-notch divas such as Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Tina Turner; out-powers the high notes of Steven Tyler and Freddie Mercury; and drops lower than...Barry White?! Obviously the now 52-year-old rocker has gotten heads banging with his raspy and yet »

Why 'Survivor' is still kicking butt 28 seasons in

21 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It was a debacle. The battle of the sexes twist didn’t work. The cast was unlikable, including one dude who called himself Troyzan and another dude who called himself Tarzan. It was ridiculous. So when Survivor: One World signed off in the spring of 2012, many wondered openly about the health of the franchise that gave birth to network reality TV way back in the summer of 2000. Maybe it was finally time to snuff Survivor’s torch.

Except that’s not what happened. Ever since then, Survivor has been so hot that Michael Skupin may burn his hands on it »

Axl Rose Has Not Been Declared the ‘World's Greatest’ Singer, Contrary to Popular Stupidity

21 May 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A debate is raging on the internet as to whether or not Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose is the greatest singer of all time in response to an infographic that many believe declared him as such — but relax people, you just don't read good. The Concert Hotels chart titled “The Vocal Ranges of the World's Greatest Singers” does not declare Axl Rose to be “the greatest.” He is simply among the dozens of artists the chart deemed “the world's greatest singers,” and happens to sit at the top of the chart when sorted by “vocal range,” of which »

Exclusive Interview with Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion of Stage Fright

30 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The newest horror musical Stage Fright (review) is poised for release, and we have the scoop! Starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf, this retro slasher is a great throwback for fans of Phantom of the Opera and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Dread Central: I don't know if you remember me, but I was a huge supporter of your short film, The Legend of Beaver Dam. I love it so much! So I am wondering... when you got the backing to make a feature horror musical, why not go with expanding on The Legend of Beaver Dam?

Jerome Sable: Even though we made The Legend of Beaver Dam first, the idea for Stage Fright actually preceded it. Batalion and I knew we wanted to do a slasher film at a musical theatre camp, but we realized we would probably need to make a short film first, before anyone would back an entire feature. »
