He didn’t leave and we didn’t kick him out. He will be busy though working with his other band [Stolen Babies] a lot over the next year so I am talking to other dudes both for Dillinger possibilities and just for me to play with on other creative projects. We still may be touring and writing with Gil though. Kinda in the air. No big drama though or anything.
Metal Hammer is reporting that Gil Sharone might be vacating the DEP throne. The band hasn’t confirmed or denied the possibility yet, but if that rumor wasn’t eye-stopping enough for you, then check this one out: Raanen Bozzio, son of none other than uberthumper Terry Bozzio, is at the head of the line to take over Dillinger drumming duties.
We’ll keep you posted as the breakup details become available. Unless we’re busy looking for more pictures of a scantily clad Daisy De La Hoya.
There is a god, and she is merciful. Or maybe just a prick tease. We’re not exactly sure yet, but it does appear that Jason Bonham has been jamming a little with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, which can mean only one thing—Led Zeppelin reunion! Bonzo’s boy said:
I’ve been over a couple of times with Jimmy and John Paul just trying to do some new material and writing….So I don’t know what it will be but it will be something. I mean this is something that I always wanted to do but trying to predict what it will be at the moment…all I know is I have the greatest pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and try and work on some new material, so it’s been fantastic in that aspect.
The drumming-love rumor mill needs no other grist than Tommy Lee. He’s currently being linked to Daisy De La Hoya, the runner-up for Bret Michaels’ heart on Rock of Love 2…which interestingly enough is the very show that Lee bashed not long ago. As we wait for The National Enquirer to deliver the details of their burgeoning romance, take a minute (or 15 minutes) to enjoy some pics of the delightfully tattooed Daisy.
We have absolutely no inside info on this latest bit of gossip…but when did that ever stop DIY reportage?
Some celebrity blogs are reporting that Tommy Lee was a no-show at Pamela Anderson’s birthday bash in Las Vegas this weekend. The two recently reunited as cuddlebugs, so Lee’s absence does seem somewhat odd, though not entirely damning given that he and the rest of the Crue guys are super occupied with Cruefest and their new album. But how to explain these pics from WireImage of Pam getting cozy with Criss Angel? Man, we’re not even going to try. Just get ready for the shit slinging and fist swinging.
Nine whole tracks from Axl’s long-awaited Chinese Democracy were reportedly leaked a few days ago. The copyright cops took down the MP3s pretty quickly…but not before the inevitable and blessed YouTube clips started to appear. We’re not sure who’s playing drums on the leaked versions (Josh Freese, Brain?), but despite all probability, the songs are actually pretty intriguing. And some of them might even be good. We need a few more beers just to make sure.
