--Pussy Riot Member Being Transfered To Siberian Prison

Imprisoned Russian punk rocker Nadya Tolokonnikova [[ nadia to-lo-kon-ya-kova ]] may be on her way to a prison deep in Siberia.  Officials recently confirmed that the Pussy Riot member was being transfered to a new prison, and now her husband, Peter Verzilov, tells "Rolling Stone" that a source in Russia's prison administration says she's being moved to a facility located more than two-thousand miles east of Moscow.  She was originally in a prison colony just six-hours outside of Moscow, but went on a hunger strike to protest the conditions there.  Verzilov says his source expects Nadya to arrive at the central Siberian prison by the end of the week.  It would be the first time she has been seen by her family and supporters since October 20th.

Tolokonnikova and one of her bandmates are currently serving a two-year jail sentence for participating in a punk-performance protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin.  They're scheduled to be released this coming March.


--Slayer Reissuing 10 Albums On Vinyl

Slayer fans will have a lot of new vinyl to enjoy just in time for the holidays.  The thrash metal veterans have announced plans to remaster ten of their albums and put them out on "the highest quality, 180-gram audiophile vinyl" on December 10th.  Records getting the reissue treatment range from 1986's landmark release "Reign in Blood" to the band's most recent studio effort, 2009's "World Painted Blood."  Each album will feature the original artwork, and for the first run in the U.S., 500 unmarked copies will be pressed on "blood red" colored vinyl and randomly distributed as part of a so-called "lucky dip."  Fans are encouraged to look out for more announcements about the reissue campaign at Slayer.net.


--Chino Moreno, Crosses Releasing Debut In February

Chino Moreno is ready to put out more music with yet another side project.  The Deftones frontman just released an album with Palms this summer, and now he's announced plans to release an album with Crosses this coming February.  The band's self-titled debut full-length will include five new songs paired with tracks they've taken from the EPs they put out over the past two years.  In addition to Moreno, Crosses also includes Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and Chuck Doom.  Fans can pre-order their new album starting November 26th, while the collection is scheduled to arrive in stores on February 11th.

--Today's Birthdays

In 1975
The Sex Pistols played its first gig.  The show, at St. Martin's School of Art in London, only lasted ten-minutes before organizers turned off the electricity.

In 1992
Rage Against the Machine released its self-titled album.

In 1997
Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and wife Pamela Anderson Lee were unsuccessful in having a court block Internet Entertainment Group from offering free viewings of their X-rated home video.

In 2000
Jon Bon Jovi traveled to Wisconsin with democratic presidential candidate Al Gore to help him campaign.

In 2006
Guns N' Roses cancelled its concert in Portland, Maine.  City officials said the issue was band members' on-stage drinking, which was illegal because the show included pyrotechnics.  Band members claimed the fire marshals were imposing rules that weren't applied to previous concerts by other artists, and it kept them from putting on a quality show.

Iron Maiden, the New York Dolls, and Ronnie James Dio were among those recognized at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour ceremony, presented in London by the UK magazine "Classic Rock."

In 2008
Linkin Park's single "Leave Out All the Rest" was featured multiple times in an episode of the CBS crime drama, "CSI."  The song was taken from the band's "Minutes to Midnight" album.

In 2009
Aerosmith's Joe Perry announced that frontman Steven Tyler was no longer in the group, telling "The Las Vegas Sun," quote, "Steven has quit as far as I can tell."  Tyler was thought to have left the band after a concert in Dubai five days earlier.  While talk of Aerosmith finding a new frontman followed, Tyler eventually returned to the fold.

In 2011
Thirty Seconds to Mars and Linkin Park were among the winners at the MTV Europe Music Awards.  Coldplay, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol also performed at the ceremony in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
