Marilyn Manson introduced Ozzy Osbourne, who received the Immortal Rock Award at the first ever Spike TV Scream Awards held at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, CA last October 7. The award show paid homage to the genres of horror, sci-fi and fantasy, as well as comic book culture.

Volkswagon will be running commercials for their "V-dubs Rock" campaign until December 31, 2006, giving anyone who buys or leases a new Rabbit, GTI, Beetle, Beetle convertible or Jetta a custom First Act GarageMaster guitar. What's so special about getting a guitar? You can actually plug it into your VW and play it through the car's stereo. Velvet Revolver and ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash is one of several celebs to front the V-Dubs rock commercials. You can view the Volkswagen ad featuring Slash here.

Don Dokken has uploaded the following audio samples from his upcoming Solitary solo album at his official website here: 'Someday', 'Sarah', 'Never Forget', 'Meadows', 'Ship Of Fools' and 'Everything'. As previously reported, the singer has been working on a new Dokken album called Lightning Strikes with guitarist Jon Levin. As well, he's recorded a new Dokken Greatest Hits album with his other two bandmates: drummer Mick Brown and bassist Barry Sparks. According to AFM Records, U.D.O. are currently in the studio working on their next studio album. It is scheduled for an April 2007 release. More details and a specific release date are expected to be announced soon.

The final tracklisting for the soundtrack to the upcoming Saw III flick, which hits theaters on October 27th, has been revealed and is as follows: All That Remains - 'This Calling', Static X - 'No Submission', Slayer - 'Eyes Of The Insane' (exclusive remix), Lamb of God - 'Walk With Me In Hell', Helmet - 'Monochrome', Disturbed - 'Guarded', Blue October - 'Drilled A Wire Through My Cheek', Drowning Pool - 'No More', Avenged Sevenfold - 'Burn It Down', Eighteen Visions - 'Victim', Opiate For The Masses - 'Naked' (unreleased track), Bullet For MY Valentine - 'Suffocating Under Words Of Sorrow (What Can I Do)', Ministry - Fear Is Big Business', Mastodon - 'The Wolf Is Loose', Hydrovibe -'Killer Inside', Hourcast - 'Sakkara', Meshuggah - 'Shed', The Smashup - 'Effigy', Ghost Machine - 'Siests Loca' and Charlie Clouser - 'Score Suite' (exclusive).

Opeth have posted this message at their official website: "Despite trying to come to South America numerous times it is with regret that Opeth cannot get to South America this year; in order to do a proper headline show involves Opeth bringing a lot of equipment with them. New airline excess baggage rules mean that this equipment now has to be freighted and the costs of doing this did not make the tour financially viable. We will do our utmost to try and get to South America on the next album tour cycle."

According to the official Stryper website, the band will be featured along with other Christian artists on the Bahamas Missions Cruise, which takes place from June 4th - 8th, 2007. The Cruise will go from Port Canaveral, FL to Coco Cay, Bahamas and back.

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and his wife, former "Baywatch'' star Donna D'Errico, finally finished refurbishing their Agoura Hills home of eight years, and now they've put it on the market at close to $3 million. The Spanish-style, 6,000 square-foot villa on 40 acres of land, has six bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, a family room, a formal dining room and a bonus room. The master bedroom suite has a balcony, vaulted ceiling, two walk-in closets, a spa tub, a steam shower and a redwood sauna. One of the other bedrooms was designed as a sound studio. All the closets are cedar-lined. The kitchen was remodeled in 2002 with granite counters, slate floors, hand-hewed oak cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances, a copper sink and a built-in cappuccino machine. D'Errico, who filed for divorce from Sixx in April, designed the kitchen. The grounds have a pool, spa, meditation garden, vegetable garden, playground and mountain views. The villa is in a gated community of four homes. A river-rock waterfall accents the house's double-door entry, which is reached by a private drive.

Atreyu has signed an exclusive worldwide recording agreement with Hollywood Records. They recently released their final Victory Records album, "A Death-Grip on Yesterday" which has sold over 210,000 units.
