Former Judas Priest Guitarist Worried Metal Will Become Extinct
“I must urge everyone to try pay for their music because without your support our beloved metal will become an endangered species if it is not that way already,” he said. “I have many friends and associates that once had a good career and prospects; these include producers, record engineers, managers and of course many musicians. Now most of them are struggling to make ends meet and stay in the business…”

According to Bang Showbiz, ALICE COOPER wants to erect a statue to the unknown chicken which kick started his career.
The singer and his theatrical shock rock band hit the headlines on September 13th, 1969 when their audience at a show in Canada tore the live bird to pieces, and Alice feels proper tribute should be paid to the animal, whose bloodied body was thrown back at the group.
He said: "Here's the kicker. The people in the first five rows were all in wheelchairs. They didn't like the idea that the chicken could walk - that's what flipped into my mind.
"And this was the Toronto 'Peace' Festival! I am seriously thinking of erecting a statue there; Monument to the Unknown Chicken. The noble bird that lost its life in the service of rock 'n' roll and gave Alice Cooper a career."
Ace Frehley Describes Former KISS bandmate Gene Simmons As A Sex Addict In His New Memoir | Rock News | Eddie Trunk
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH...Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley-the rock band that made every day Halloween with their over-the-top costumes and live shows-labels his ex-bandmate Gene Simmons a “sex addict” who had no luck with women before becoming a rock star, in a tell-all book.
Frehley describes Simmons, who now stars on A&E’s Gene Simmons Family Jewels and just wed long-suffering fiancée Shannon Tweed after nearly three decades together, as an “epic slob,” who was ”infested” with a constant case of the cooties thanks to an open-door policy for bedding women.
“I believe Gene is a sex addict, in much the same way I am an alcoholic,” the Bronx born Frehley writes in No Regrets, out tomorrow from Gallery/VH1 Classic. “If you’ve been with only one or two women (and had to beg for whatever you got off them), it must be intoxicating to suddenly have groupies falling all over you. You go from getting laid once or twice a year to getting laid a hundred times by a hundred different women. We all have our issues and vices, and I saw Gene’s behavior affect him and the band sometimes in a negative way.”
Frehley, aka Spaceman, also asserts that Simmons was a “fastidious” businessman, but an “utter mess in his personal life.”
“[Gene] would [bleep] almost anything,” Frehley recalls. “Short, tall; plump, svelte; attractive, merely tolerable.” And Simmons suffered the consequences: “[He] seemed to live in a state of perpetual infestation,” Frehley writes of the bassist’s epic battle with pubic lice.
