Sadly we must say goodbye to Cory Smoot, the longtime guitarist for GWAR who was found dead on the band’s tour bus. No cause of death has been determined, however the band has vowed to continue on in honor of his memory. For those of you that are Beavis and [...]

Interesting decision by Coldplay to not stream their new album on any service save iTunes. It’s their dime, but there’s so few dollars these days in the music business I would go after all I could. If you learn to play (hopefully guitar with Raw Talent Guitar), become part of a big band, then I [...]
Steve Tyler has suffered quite a few bumps and bruises over the years, however this time he lost some teeth. Check the article out on Yahoo, and just for fun here is a video of Tyler bumping Joe Perry (who was dutifully tuned in to his guitar playing), who in turns bumps Tyler right off [...]
