This announcement came in from Nikki Sixx's management company: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Sixx:AM will be postponing their Spring tour and will most likely hit the road in the Summer of 2008.

Please keep checking www.sixxammusic.com as details will be posted as soon as they are made available."
Ace Frehley said he plans to have his new solo album entitled Pain In The Neck ready for a spring release but is still putting the finishing touches on it, including some scheduled six-string contributions from his pal Slash. Though most of the tunes were written in the past several years, Frehley says he also looked to his own past for guidance. ''I've been listening to my first solo album with Kiss, because everybody says that's their favorite record. I was trying to figure out what made it so special, so I'm trying to incorporate a lot of what that record had for this new CD. It has a lot of different aspects and shows different musical sides of me and it's something I'm trying to recapture. I don't know if I can do it but I'm gonna take a shot at it.''
The reunited Stone Temple Pilots additional dates. The band's confirmed schedule looks like this:

5/18 - Camden, NJ - Susquehanna Bank Center (WMMR Event)

Music has been used in American military prisons and on bases to induce sleep deprivation, "prolong capture shock," disorient detainees during interrogations—and also drown out screams. Based on a leaked interrogation log, news reports, and the accounts of soldiers and detainees, here are some of the songs that guards and interrogators chose. MotherJones.com has compiled the "torture playlist", which includes the following: Deicide "Fuck Your God", Dope "Die Mother Fucker Die", and the Meow Mix commercial.
