Trevor Bolder, bassist with the Spiders From Mars and Uriah Heep, has died . Bolder came from a musical family - his father a trumpeter; one aunt an opera singer another a music teacher. From the age of seven, he was in brass bands and, but for the intervention of the Beatles and the 1960s, would have carried his instrument into the Royal Marines Band.

El fin de semana se llevará a cabo el Hell & Heaven Metal Fest. Por: @Mountains Los festivales en México hace unos años no eran predominantes en el mapa musical de la gente y mucho menos en el de los visitantes foráneos. Con el paso del tiempo nos hemos dado cuenta que algunos promotores han hecho su esfuerzo por que ciertos nombres o marcas permanezcan en la mente de la gente y así asistan año con año a caravanas musicales en nuestro país. En cuanto a festivales de metal [...]
This week felt like living in a soap opera.
Photo of Infinite Self by G. Infinite Self by Stuart Wilde Death is a part of life and yet, I am having a hard time believing that spiritual guru Stuart Wilde has departed from this earth. Several websites have confirmed the news, so I know it to be true. On May 1, 2013, Stuart Wilde suffered a fatal heart attack in Ireland. While I never met Stuart Wilde, I have been a fan and admirer of his teachings for a very long time and [...]

Oggi è il giorno dei geni del male e del metal. Dopo la notizia dell' arresto del cantante degli As I Lay Dying (finito in manette perchè cercava di assoldare qualcuno che uccidesse la ex-moglie), ci giunge notizia di un altro arresto: quello di Allen West, ex-chitarrista e membro fondatore degli Obituary . Allen è in prigione già da un mese, ma la notizia si è diffusa solo oggi; il motivo della detenzione è legato alla produzione di metanfetamine. Il modo in cui il suo laboratorio domestico è stato scoperto è semplicemente grottesco. Stando al Tri-County [...]

Ray Harryhausen , a legendary visual effects pioneer and stop-motion model animator, passed away at the age of 92 . Harryhausen’s fascination with animated models began when he first saw Willis O’Brien’s creations in KING KONG with his boyhood friend, the author Ray Bradbury in 1933, and he made his first foray into filmmaking in 1935 with home-movies that featured his youthful attempts at model animation. Over the period of the next 46 years, he made some of the genres best known movies – MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1949), IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA [...]
Here’s an obituary for Margaret Groening , mother of Matt, whom you may remember is the creator of a little shows known as 'The Simpsons'. You’ll recognize a lot of these names. Many of the streets names in Portland, Ore. - Lovejoy, Terwilliger, Flanders, Quimby, et al. - are also better known as characters on the show, but I never realized how directly many of the characters were taken from Groening's family. A true testament for family and home if there ever was one. [via bleedingcool ]
