SCORCH “TALKIN’ ROCKIN” 12-02-19

TODAY: KNOTFEST; KID ROCK; NIRVANA; and MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN!!

LAST NIGHT IN MEXICO, A RIOT BROKE OUT AT KNOTFEST, AFTER SLIPKNOT AND EVANESCENCE CANCELLED THEIR SETS, OVER SAFETY CONCERNS.  IT APPEARS THE BARRIER BETWEEN THE PATRONS AND THE PERFORMERS, WAS BROKEN DOWN, AND THE ORGANIZERS WERE UNABLE TO FIX IN TIME, SO THE BANDS CANCELLED THEIR SETS!   ONCE CONCERTGOERS FOUND OUT, THEY RUSHED THE STAGE, CAUSING DAMAGE TO BOTH BANDS EQUIPMENT, ACTUALLY TORCHING EVANESCENCES DRUMS!!!!  WE’LL KEEP YOU UPDATED ON ANY RAMIFICATIONS FROM THE RIOTS!!  https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/12/riot-slipknot-evanescence-knotfest-mexico/
KID ROCK IS IN THE NEWS, BUT THIS TIME, THE AMERICAN BAD ASS, IS COMING ACROSS LIKE THE AMERICAN STUPID ASS!!   THE KID WANTS THE WORLD TO KNOW HE’S NOT A FAN OF OPRAH or JOY BEHAR or KATHIE LEE GIFFORD FOR THAT MATTER!!  IT APPEARS KID ROCK WAS AT HIS OWN HONKY TONK BAR IN NASHVILLE LAST WEEK, AND HE PUT HIMSELF ON VIDEO BADMOUTHING THE FEMALE TALKSHOW HOSTS IN A DRUNKEN RANT, AND OF COURSE, TMZ GOT AHOLD OF IT, AND BLEW IT UP!    KID SAYS, IT ALL STEMS TO MANY YEARS AGO WHEN KID ROCK REFUSED TO DO THE OPRAH SHOW.  AT THIS POINT, KID ROCK SHOULD TAKE WHATEVER  HELP HE CAN GET, TO GET HIS STUFF OUT THERE!!! https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/11/kid-rock-trashes-oprah-drunken-rant/
NIRVANA and FASHION DESIGNER MARC JACOBS ARE AT IT AGAIN!  THE ARGUMENT IS OVER THE “SMILEY FACE” THAT NIRVANA IS KNOWN FOR.   ORGINALLY, NIRVANA SUED JACOBS SAYING THAT THEY CAME UP WITH THEIR VERSION OF THE SMILEY FACE, BUT JACOBS IS NOW COUNTERSUING, BASICALLY FOR THE SAME THING!!!  THERE ARE PICTURES ON THE LINK YOU CAN LOOK AT AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF!! https://loudwire.com/nirvana-smiley-face-marc-jacobs-countersuit/
FINALLY, LONG BEFORE HE WAS THE SINGER OF TOOL and A PERFECT CIRCLE, MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN PLAYED IN A COUPLE OF MUCH SMALLER BANDS, INCLUDING ONE CALLED CAD (CHILDREN OF THE ANOCHRONISTIC DYNASTY). WELL,  A VIDEO HAS SURFACED OF CAD, PLAYING ON PUBLIC ACCESS TV OUT OF GRAND RAPIDS MICHIGAN!!  THEY SAY CAD DID A CRUDE VERSION OF WHAT TURNS OUT TO BE TOOL’s SOBER, IN THEIR REPORTOIRE!!  HERE’S THE STORY/LINK!  https://loudwire.com/tool-maynard-old-band-c-a-d/
