Little Girl Smashes System Of A Down

Mad. Chops.

So when 5-year-olds are generally still cracking out the crayons and the dolls and the mud-pies (or whatever 5-year-olds are doing in 2015), young Eduarda Henklein is dominating all over the drums. 

And we're talking a FULL KIT, as well! 

Not only that, but god damn does she make it look easy. Beginning with a yawn and dominating with a smile, this performance goes up against any as one MEAN jam. 

Check out her Youtube channel for many more hectic jams.

Guns 'N Roses Amp Up Their Epic Reunion

New collectable merch, tour confirmations, and actual lineup theories!

The whole Guns ‘N Roses original reunion that has been dominating news feeds over the past few months has just gone next level.

Over the past two weeks Slash, Nikki Sixx, Richard Fortus (Gunners guitarist), and Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver) have all “confirmed” the reunion in their own way.

(Nikki Sixx confirms Gunners reunion tour with "THEY ARE. EVERYBODY KNOWS." - via Twitter)

And yesterday the Gunners sent out an email to fans announcing the release of new merchandise featuring the band’s original lineup and logo.

This may not seem like a huge development – but it really is.

Legal battles have been raging over Guns ‘N Roses merch and logo rights since 2006 when Dik Hayd International, LLC (Slash’s company) tried to trademark all of the old Gunners logos and gear. Slash’s ex-wife Perla was the VP of Dik Hayd during these trademark battles, according to divorce filings (exhibit A & B)

Thankfully though, all of the Guns ‘N Roses trademarks continue to be jointly owned by Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan after the trademark claims were abandoned in late 2007.

So now the floodgates have been released and the merchandise is flowing free.

But even though all of the merch being released is of the original lineup, bets are on that the reunion won’t be strictly original.

Melodic Rock reports that the lineup will be Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, and Dizzy Reed

So far there’s no Izzy Stradlin and no Steven Adler, leading some to ask: “What's the point?”

Regardless, the reunion train is still cranking. And it’s providing fans with some ROCKING stuff.

Nikki Sixx Puts The Finishing Touches On Two New Albums

"I feel like we have topped ourselves on both albums" - Nikki Sixx

(Image via Getty)

Not even a year after the last release and Nikki Sixx’s Sixx:A.M. are adding the finishing touches on TWO massive releases.

Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) broke the exciting news via Facebook, along with news of tours in the works to boot!

According to the announcement, DJ Ashba has a few final tracks to lay down as James Michael finishes of lead vocals before mixing can begin – but Sixx is entirely done.

(Image via Facebook)

The new record will include roughly two dozen songs all up. But if you thought you’d get even vaguely bored halfway through the musical marathon, Nikki says he has planned otherwise.

“When a band releases a double album, a lot of times about halfway through the second record, you say, ‘Sounds like they ran out of gas,’” says Sixx.

“So by putting them out separately, we’ll give fans time to absorb each one fully. They’ll get the first one. They’ll stream it. They’ll feel it. They’ll hear it live. And then it’ll be, ‘Here comes another one’.”

Sounds good to us! 

We can expect the Sixx:A.M. fires to enter full steam when Sixx returns from touring with Mötley Crüe on their 'Final Tour' concluding on Dec. 31.

Pearl Jam Smash Frothies With Fan

Best. Birthday. Ever.

(Screenshot via Youtube)

So this dude’s birthday is now an unforgettable moment thanks to Eddie Vedder.

At their show in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, Eddie decided to have some fun and invite a fan on stage brandishing a sign that read:

“It’s My Birthday Can I please sing a song with you?”

Ed brought all the lights up in the audience and said, “It is your birthday? Now let’s see, I saw you 3 days ago holding the same sign and a few days before that with the same sign. It must be nice to have every day be your birthday.”

The boys sank some beers and the supposed birthday boy got his birthday wish during ‘Porch’.


And it looks like the boys now have rockin' birthdays down. The following night the band celebrated drummer Matt Cameron's 53rd birthday... by chucking his cake into the crowd screaming "WE NEED SOME FORKS!"

And what a bloody epic throw!

Check out the birthday celebrations below.

AC/DC Rocks Perth

If you thought AC/DC's power as a live band would be diminished in the absence of Malcolm Young and Phil Rudd... think again!

AC/DC explodes in Perth Photo: AC/DC / Joshua on @instagram


Walking towards Subiaco’s Domain Stadium, surrounded by AC/DC T-shirts (seriously, on every 2nd person!) you get the feeling you’re in for a good night!

Inside, the stage set-up looked amazing before the lads even got on it…a mixture of screens, hi-tech lighting and corrugated iron - and of course, there’s horns on top!

Speaking of horns…the flashing red ones that half the crowd have bought from the merchandise stands: they actually look AMAZING as the sun sets and the audience begins to glow red!!

So everyone was pumped even before AC/DC burst onto the stage with a powerful version of “Rock or Bust” (prefaced by a cool video compilation on the big screens). The title track from the latest album was one of only a few newer tracks: this was a “greatest hits” set!

For song #2, they ripped straight into the killer “Shoot to Thrill” from “Back in Black” – one of 5 songs (including the title track of course) that they did from that legendary 1980 album.

There was plenty of older classics from the Bon Scott days too: Dirty Deeds, Shot Down in Flames, Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be. During “High Voltage” Brian gave a nice little shout-out to the dearly departed Bon (whose grave is, of course, only about 16k’s away in Fremantle!!)

I’d heard stories from “over east” about the cameras panning out into the crowd, and ladies “flashing” during “You Shook Me All Night Long”. True stories it would seem, although here in Perth, only one set of boobs got the full big-screen display! The biggest pair on display for the night belonged to the famous giant “stage prop”, Rosie…who of course appeared for the classic, and still hilarious, “Whole Lotta Rosie”.

There’d been a few whispers of AC/DC really missing the old rhythm section of (the sadly, ill) Malcolm Young and (the troubled) Phil Rudd on this tour. And perhaps the “backbone” of the band wasn’t quite as strong as it was last time I saw them. But Stevie Young (yep, another member of the clan!) and Chris Slade are more than adequate for keeping the band’s “Rock N Roll Train” chugging along. And make no mistake: This is the “Angus and Brian Show” anyway!! Angus in particular. The way he attacked his guitar with the strap during “Sin City” was simply awesome! And by the end of the classic “Let There Be Rock”, Angus has ripped through an enormous solo that not only proves his guitar chops, but also proved that he has the crowd in the palm of his hand.

It was a fitting end to the night when – after an encore of “Highway to Hell” and “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)” – the stage and sky exploded in a rather impressive fireworks display.

There’s rumours that this MAY be the last time AC/DC tour Australia…or tour at all. We hope not. But if it is, they went out in massive, fiery, rock n roll style! For those who rocked... we salute you.

Look out Melbourne!

If you thought AC/DC's power as a live band would be diminished in the absence of Malcolm Young and Phil Rudd... think again!

I just hope the Etihad Stadium roof will be open as there's a serious risk Angus & co. will blow it off!

To witness an AC/DC live show - as I did at Domain Stadium in Perth on Sunday night - after all of these years is still a privilege.

The 2015 crowd may include more young families draped in merchandise and snapping selfies but one thing about AC/DC never changes... the guitar brilliance of Angus Young!

Angus is a 60-year-old elite athlete who leaves it all out on the stage!

During his incredible extended solo during "Let There Be Rock", I couldn't help to think of what most sixty year olds were doing in Perth at 10 o'clock on a Sunday night!

It's as though Angus and veteran singer Brian Johnson see the Rolling Stones touring and nailing it in their seventies and say, 'ok we'll see you and then raise you an even bigger production'.

While there's been talk that this would most likely be AC/DC's final world tour, I wouldn't be suprised to see Angus still writhing on stage in a decade from now!

If you have tickets for the Melbourne gigs expect a set list that includes most of the major hits and one that reflects the incredible success of that monster first post Bon Scott album Back in Black.

In Perth we heard five from that classic rock album including a blazing early rip through "Shoot to Thrill" and, of course, "You Shook Me All Night Long". The show closer had my mind on the Melbourne shows to come.

However, as we ambled out of Domain Stadium I was thinking more For those about to rock, I just envy you!

Eagles Of Death Metal Detail Horrific Paris Attack In First Full Interview

'I want to be the first band to play in the Bataclan when it opens back up'

Image: VICE

Eagles of Death Metal have opened up about the horror that was endured when  terrorists opened fire during their concert in Paris.

In an interview with Vice, the band recounted their experiences of the harrowing incident.

"I immediately knew something was wrong," drummer Julian Dorio said.

"I bailed off my stool almost immediately. I turned, looked through my drum hardware to the side of an amp and that's when the second round started."

Lead singer Jesse Hughes has vowed to return to the theatre and finish their European tour.

"I want to be the first band to play in the Bataclan when it opens back up. Our friends went there to see rock and roll and died. I want to go back and live,” he said.

Former White Stripes front-man Jack White is due to open a vinyl pressing plant in Detroit, the first of its kind in the American city since the 1960’s.

It's through his record company called Third Man Records, which has been producing music almost exclusively on vinyl, from artists such as Beck and Johnny Cash since 2001.

Jack White's vinyl pressing plant in Detroit Photo:

Third Man Records released a statement on its official website saying: "we have purchased eight presses from German startup Newbilt, and we are anxious to get them up and running, which we expect to happen mid-2016."

Meanwhile, has spoken to operator Ben Blackwell about their plans.

"The pressing plant... eventually plans to house at least eight working presses. A window in the shop will let customers see the manufacturing floor as part of Third Man’s ongoing initiative to educate the public about vinyl culture and show that, as Blackwell puts it, 'all this stuff is alive and well.'

The top-hatted guitarist returned to the scene playing with alternative rockers The Dead Weather in September and releasing a new record called Dodge and Burn.

Justin Beiber Slammed For Wearing Nirvana

But Courtney Love came to the rescue!

Looks like Biebz is at it again.

Justin Bieber has received one hell of a smack down from fans on social media for cranking a (rather cheap looking) Nirvana shirt featuring a heart shaped box on the front and “fear of god” on the back.

The 'Baby' singer previously upset fans by appearing on TV rocking a Metallica shirt. 

But this time Courtney Love came to the rescue with support and even a twinge of admiration! (Wha--?)

The "musician" wore the shirt to the American Music Awards (AMA's) earlier in the week, and performed a "medley of hits" from his latest album.

But not surprisingly, this whole Nirvana shirt thing is the most memorable event from his presence that night.

WATCH Pearl Jam's Paris Tribute

Check out Pearl Jam's cover of EODM's 'Want You So Bad' & 'Imagine'

(Screenshot via Youtube)

They may be on the other side of the world, but Pearl Jam have still been rocked by the Paris attacks last week.

Currently in the middle of their South American tour, the boys paid their respects with a two song dedication to the band and fans who were victims of the brutality.

To mark the one week anniversary of the attacks, Pearl Jam covered Eagles Of Death Metal’s hit ‘Want You So Bad’, followed by a touching cover of ‘Imagine’ dedicated to a Pearl Jam fan who died in The Bataclan attack.

“We’ve never played this,” Eddie Vedder said to the crowd before jumping straight into it. 

Pearl Jam - 'Want You So Bad'

But the stand out moment really did come from Vedder's performance of John Lennon's 'Imagine', which he dedicated to a long-time Pearl Jam fan Pierre-Antoine Henry who was killed at the EODM show. 

"It makes the senseless, senseless tragedy that occurred last week in Paris even more upsetting and the fact that it happened during concert with a great band and great Parisian fans it hurts us and breaks our hearts to the core and it broke our hearts even more when we and more deeply when we heard that someone, a really good man, a father of two, a great husband, great brother, a great son and he was always in the front row of the shows when we played in Europe.

"And we found out recently that he lost his life, when like all the others he deserved very much to still be living.”
