Hollywood Stars Who Starred in Bands

Alongside music, Hollywood is another outlet that helps people with their personal wellbeing. A great album uplifts the spirits and can make you feel better in yourself, and a good film can do the same. Often, a movie with a great soundtrack hits two birds with one stone and stands out from the crowd. Thanks to great music, films such as The Crow and even chick-flick Dirty Dancing were elevated to popularity beyond their cinematic qualities. Sometimes, musicians cross over into films, too. Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne appeared in the 2000 release Little Nicky, as well as Austin Powers: Goldmember. Gwen Stefani (Aviator), Cher (Moonstruck) and David Bowie (Labyrinth) have all swapped the recording studio for the film studio, with moderate success. That gives their fans somethi...

A LIMP BIZKIT Fan KILLS it on Stage with “Full Nelson” in Chicago

It's no secret that the talk of Summer 2021 has been Fred Durst adopting his "Dad" look.  Fred Durst is one marketing genius.  The band has sold over 40 million records but that doesn't stop Limp Bizkit from giving back to the fans.  At a recent show at The Metro in Chicago, Illinois, Fred Durst and the band invite a fan named Oscar DeLeon onto the stage to perform "Full Nelson."  If Fred becomes incapacitated, they might have a replacement in Oscar.  This is AWESOME!  Check it the hell out! Jefferson Park in Chicago is proud!

That Time JOEY JORDISON Filled in for Lars Ulrich at Download 2004! Full Concert Inside!

It's with a heavy heart to report that Slipknot co-founder and Murderdolls/Sinsaenum guitarist/drummer Joey Jordison passed away in his sleep.  Joey's family released the following statement in regards to his passing: Joey's death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow, To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music. On a personal note, I remember seeing Slipknot live at the US Cellular Center for the "All Hope Is Gone" tour in 2008.  I remember the energy Joey brought behind the kit and immediately realizing he was one of the sickest drummers I have ever seen live.  Joey was a showman behind the kit and he hit harder than most metal drummers I've seen.  Joey was so good t...
