Buckcherry is marking a major ringtone milestone this week as their hit, "Crazy Bitch," celebrates a full year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 -- the only track to do so in the chart's history. The ringtone was already a smash in Nielsen Ringscan's first-ever reporting week (ending September 3, 2006), and in the year that followed, has yet to drop out of the Top 30. In its 52nd week on the Ringscan chart, the ringtone is currently ranked at #23. "Crazy Bitch" has been certified as a Platinum Master Ringtone by the RIAA.
Triumph band member and recent Canadian music hall of fame inductee Mike Levine has scheduled a live online chat for Tuesday, September 4th from 6 P.M to 7 P.M Eastern time. You can find the chat link on the discussion boards at TriumphMusic.com.
Black Label Society guitarist Nick Catanese has formed a new band with Queensryche guitarist Mike Stone. The three piece band, which will feature Stone on bass and vocals, and Mike Froedge of Doubledrive on drums, will announce a name soon.
Six Feet Under have been busy on a new video. The band reports, "We filmed a new video clip this past weekend for the song 'Doomsday' from our latest release Commandment. We once again worked with director Mario D. Framingheddu, who also filmed our last video, 'Ghosts Of The Undead'. The concept of the clip is pure fucking insanity on all levels. We were fortunate enough to work with Grady Stiles, aka Lobsterboy, who plays our main character. This has to be the creepiest clip we've ever filmed, from location, to story-line, to cast. It's totally fucked up! We are really proud of this vid and are really looking forward to the release.
And now, a special message from Kiss bassist Gene Simmons: "I AM NOT MARRIED!!! Folks. I have been deluged with new emails saying some very nice things. Thank you. But, seriously girls, I AM NOT MARRIED!!! I HAVE NEVER BEEN MARIED. I HAVE NO INTENTIONS OF EVERY GETTING MARRIED. It shocks me that women keep saying "...you wife"... and can't get it through their heads there IS NO wife. Never has been. Never will be. Women are finally FREE. You live in the 21st Century. You DON'T HAVE TO BE MARRIED, if you don't want to. So ladies, I say this again, I AM NOT MARRIED."
UK NWOBHM legends Diamond Head have issued the following update:
"After being 'lost' for over 27 years, and much sought after by both the band and fans, Dave Brett has done a sterling job in not only tracking down two songs filmed for Look Hear in 1980, but he has also sent us copies and uploaded them on to YouTube. You can see the band playing 'Streets Of Gold' and 'Helpless'.
"I have been wishing I could see these two very old very rare videos for almost 27 years," says guitarist Brian Tatler. "I only saw them once when the program Look Hear! was first broadcast in 1980 and no one had a video recorder then, so thanks to the Diamond Head website and a lot of perseverance we finally have a copy in our possession. I would like to thank Dave for sending them to us, I was 19 when this was recorded, happy times"
