Slash Is Producing an 80s Slasher Movie

28 August 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sure, news that Slash and W. Axl Rose have mended broken fences to become friends once again, with the possibility of a true blue Guns N' Roses reunion tour on the horizon is huge! But maybe not as huge as an 80s slasher style horror movie coming from Slash himself! THR reveal that the guitarist is teaming up with Revolver Picture Company, and will produce the Untitled thriller, hoping to bring something new and completely unique to the horror genre.

Absolutely no plot details are being revealed to the public just yet, and it isn't known if the slasher movie will contain a musical element. Boogeyman 2 and Boogeyman 3 writer Brian Sieve was hired to pound out the screenplay, and has reportedly already turned in a draft. Revolver Picture Company is the company behind such cult hits as 2014's Haunt and Beneath. The hope is to turn Slash's »

Slash & Axl Rose End Feud? Former Guns N' Roses Guitarist Confirms They're on Friendly Terms—Watch!

22 August 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Are Slash and Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose no longer estranged? The 50-year-old guitar legend left the group in the mid '90s after the peak of its fame amid a feud with the iconic singer, one of the most famous disputes in rock 'n' roll history. Slash was asked about the issue in an on-camera interview with the Swedish outlet Aftonbladet TV. He is currently on a tour.  "I've heard that you made friends with Axl Rose again. How was that possible after all those years?" a reporter asked him. "It was probably way overdue, you know, but it's, it's, it's, you know, it's very cool at this point, to...dispell some of that negative »

The whole band had a reputation for being late and disruptive at concerts, but this story has to be one of memorable if for nothing else than how mundane it »

5 Guitarists That Could Replace DJ Ashba In Guns N’ Roses

30 July 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wikimedia Commons

Inevitably, Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba must now be referred to as former Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba. He joins a long list of axe-slingers to gain the “former” prefix, with everyone from Paul Tobias, to Slash, to Izzy Stradlin, to Buckethead, to Robin Finck, to Gilby Clarke joining and exiting the band over the years. There’s been a huge number of guest guitarists too, including Brian May and Dave Navarro, meaning that guitarists are to Gn’R what drummers were to Spinal Tap – disposable entities that change with the seasons.

Ashba had a decent innings. He was with the band for about 6 years, touring several times, although – in typical Gn’R fashion – he has yet to appear on an official studio release. Mainly because there hasn’t been one since 2008’s long-awaited Chinese Democracy. There’s no doubt that Ashba’s decision to leave »

Music news - DJ Ashba quits Guns N' Roses

29 July 2015 12:59 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

DJ Ashba has quit Guns N' Roses. The guitarist joined the band in 2009 but has now revealed he has decided to leave to focus on his own band Sixx:a.M. which also features Nikki Sixx and James Michael. In a handwritten letter posted on his official website, he wrote: ''It is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I've decided to close this chapter of my life and encapsulate the wonderful times that I've shared with Guns N'Roses into fond memories.'' Despite his decision to leave the iconic band, he insisted frontman Axl Rose will remain a ''true friend'' and thanked him for letting him join the group. He added: ''I want to take a moment to thank Axl from the bottom of my heart for not only the most incredible experience of my life, but for truly believing in me. You are »

‘Batman: The Long Halloween’ Offers Readers Tricks and Treats

Batman: The Long Halloween #1-13 (1996-97)

Written by Jeph Loeb

Penciled by Tim Sale

Inked by Tim Sale

Colored by Gregory Wright

Published by DC Comics

Not only does Batman boast one of the greatest rogues’ galleries in all of comics, his villains have become so iconic that his rogues’ gallery rivals that of Andrew Jackson’s, Axl Rose’s, and that of the 1978 New York Yankees.  The villains that torment the Dark Knight are so impressive that any one of them can carry a compelling story by themselves.  However, something as monumental as the heavy hitters like Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, and eventually Two-Face all coming together during the events of The Long Halloween is only a small part of that story’s overall success.  There are so many things that make The Long Halloween the seminal Batman story that it becomes impossible to try and isolate one specific facet »

Richard Fortus unsure of Guns N' Roses future

23 July 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus claims the band's future is ''up in the air''. The 48-year-old musician - who joined the band in 2001 - has admitted he is unsure of their future having not had any discussions with fellow members Axl Rose, Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Chris Pitman, Frank Ferrer, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal or DJ Ashba for some time. He told About.com: ''The current state of Gn'r is pretty up in the air. The last I heard they wanted to finish up the recordings that we have and put them out next year and start touring. But it has been a while since I've heard from anybody in that camp as far as management or Axl. So I really don't know.'' However, the news comes just a week after he teased fans could expect to hear new music from the rockers - who haven't released a studio »

13 Movie Trailers That Made Awesome Use of Slow Cover Songs

14 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The only thing trailers love to use more than the "Inception" Braaaahm! is a moody, slowed-down cover of a popular song.

"Suicide Squad" is the latest trailer to take advantage of this trend, with its version of the Bee Gees' "I Started a Joke." Here are 13 more movie previews that make good use of great covers.

1. "Creep" in "The Social Network" (2010)

Arguably the trailer that started this trend, this preview uses a children's choir cover of Radiohead's song perfectly -- making us want to buy All the tickets to see the Facebook movie.

2. "Happy Together" in "The Great Gatsby" (2013)

Remember Filter? Lots of drives to high school were scored to this band, but Baz Luhrmann may have found an even better use for their vocal stylings in this kinda badass trailer for his 2013 film.

3. "Once Upon a Dream" in "Maleficent" (2014)

Covering a song from "Sleeping Beauty" in your movie based on that film's villain? »

WWE Beast in the East Report – Lesnar eclipses the Rising Sun, as the Demon truly arrives

4 July 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The man, the monster, the machine, the (ex) reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World descended upon Tokyo’s Ryougoku Sumo Hall on this sunny Saturday morning, in perfect timing for us UK fans, and he was in scintillating form. Yet, before we could see The Beast, or face the Demon, we were treated to…

1. Neville vs. Chris Jericho

Oh, how good was it to see Y2J back in the ring. He may look more like Axl Rose than Adam Rose these days, but he hasn’t lost an in ring beat (and I’m sure he’ll much rather the comparison to the former). Both athletes showed off their impressive technical proficiency, as well as their high-flying capabilities, as momentum swung like a pendulum. The near-twenty minute bout was main event quality for practically any PPV, with ever-popular Jericho’s Lionsault and Walls of Jericho attaining huge pops. »

The 13 Most Iconic Joker Moments

18 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Villains are everything to a story, and especially in the comic book medium, a hero is only as good as the villains that they thwart.  Batman has the most recognizable, most iconic, and overall best rogue’s gallery in all of comics.  From classics such as Two-Face, Catwoman, and the Riddler to relative newcomers like Bane, The Court of Owls, and Hush, all of these villains, and  are strongly ingrained in comic book lore to a degree unmatched by other comic book villains.  There are some heroes like Superman, Shazam, and the Hulk who have such a shallow crop of villains to draw from that it works against a creator’s ability to tell quality stories.  Batman doesn’t have this problem; in fact, one of the greatest comic book villains calls the Dark Knight his archenemy.

What makes the Joker such an exciting villain isn’t just his diabolical deeds, »

‘White Trash’ Review (Titan Comics)

15 May 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Martin Edmond | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardback, 128pp

White Trash was originally published way back in 1991 in Blast! Magazine, and you can probably guess the level of cult status it has by the fact that both Tundra and Heavy Metal have had a bash at publishing it also, before Titan Comics have come along and published this new 128 page collection.

White Trash was one of Gordon Rennie’s first ever published scripts, way before his successful time on 2000Ad and Judge Dredd, and was the strip that launched Martin Emond. The art style and anarchic nature almost certainly got him his gigs on the Lobo comics he did at DC.

White Trash is a difficult comic to describe, but ‘anarchic’ is the one phrase that keeps springing to mind. You could either view it as wonderful, over-the-top humour, poking fun at the U. »

Guns N' Roses -- Holy Crap ... Sweet Child O' Mine Is a Rip-Off?!?

11 May 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Prepare to have your mind blown ... the most iconic Guns N' Roses song -- "Sweet Child O' Mine" -- was totally jacked from an Australian soft rock band ... maybe. An Australian website, Max TV, recently made the comparison, and there's no denying ... the similarity is eerie. Here's the deal ... a group called Australian Crawl recorded and released a hit song called, "Unpublished Critics" in 1981. 'Sweet Child' didn't come out until 1987. For the record ... Axl Rose, »

Music News - Slash, Guns N' Roses back together?

11 May 2015 3:07 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Music News - Will Slash and Guns N' Roses make up and get back together? The rock guitarist says a reunion would be ''fun''. The 49-year-old rocker quit the classic band in 1996 due to tension with frontman Axl Rose, but he has now revealed the pair have settled their differences and admitted he thinks a reunion of the group's classic line-up would be something ''fans would love''. When asked if he would want a reunion, he said: ''I got to be careful what I say there, I mean, if everybody wanted to do it and do it for the right reasons, I think the fans would love it. I think it might be fun at some point to try and do that. Never say never.'' However, the guitarist - who released his third studio album 'World on Fire' last year - said restoring the band's most popular line-up is »

'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck' (2015) Movie Review

5 May 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, HBO's latest documentary, considers the discordant personal and career arc of Kurt Cobain - lead singer of '90s grunge band Nirvana. Clearly, it's a fascinating topic for a documentary, all at once ruminating on isolation, alienation, and parenthood, before finally, and most tragically, suicide. The cast of characters (well, they are real people, but you get the idea) is wide and diverse, though Kurt's wife, Courtney Love, and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic comprise the bulk of the interviews; they both have plenty of introspection around Kurt. The real problem for the film is it is tremendously burdened by oddball asides. In trying to make a film that felt like Kurt, they really forgot to tell the story of Kurt. I get the instinct, but parts of it come off like an unwatchable science fair project. Maybe it's the documentary Kurt would have made about »

Cause of 20-Year Axl Rose-Slash Feud Finally Uncovered?

27 March 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

The mystery behind why Axl Rose and Slash have been on the outs since 1996, when Slash quit Guns N' Roses, may have finally been solved. And it all comes down to ... Michael Jackson and a big-screen TV? Vulture picks up on this tidbit from former Gnr manager Doug Goldstein's interview with Rolling Stone Brazil this week: As Goldstein tells it, Axl was molested by his dad when he was a toddler and believed that Jackson was also a child molester. So when Slash agreed to perform with Jackson at a tribute concert, Goldstein warned him not to do it. »

20 Years Later, We Might Finally Know Why Axl Rose and Slash Hate Each Other — and It Involves Michael Jackson!

26 March 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Axl Rose and Slash haven't spoken in almost two decades since Slash quit Guns 'N' Roses in 1996. There was always tension between the two, but no one has ever really known what the final straw was ... until now. In an interview with Rolling Stone Brazil, the band's former manager Doug Goldstein says that Michael Jackson might partially be to blame. According to Goldstein, Axl was unhappy with Slash after he agreed to perform with Michael Jackson at a tribute concert. "I told him not to do it because Axl was molested by his father when he was two and he believed the charges against Michael Jackson. So I asked Slash, ‘How much are you receiving?’ … and he said, ‘I’ll just receive a big screen television.’ When Axl found out Slash was going to play with Michael Jackson and that the payment was a big screen TV, he »
