  • ROB ZOMBIE GUITARIST SAYS HE'S MADE ALBUM WITH DAVID LEE ROTH

    Rob Zombie's guitarist, John Five, has revealed in an interview with a Canadian rock journalist that he has recorded a brand new album with Van Halen singer David Lee Roth, which he says is "incredible" and which he hopes to release at some point in the near future. Five told writer Mitch Lafon, "It's 11 of the greatest songs you'll ever hear, and it's just me and Dave, and we had Gregg Bissonette play drums on it. And it's unbelievable . . . just great, great songs. And hopefully sometime it'll see the light of day. But he's, of course, busy with Van Halen and all that stuff. But it's an incredible record."

    Five added that he and Roth made the record "maybe a year and a half ago," saying, "I always go over to his house and we write music and things like that. It's a lot of fun. They're all original songs. I would just go over to his house during the day and write this music and then he would book the studio at night."

    • Five said that the material "sounds like just Dave from that Van Halen I or II or Women And Children First era, (in terms of his) singing (style), and it's incredible, man."
    • Five, whose real name is John Lowery, got his first big break playing on Roth's solo album, DLR Band, before landing stints with Marilyn Manson and now Zombie.
    • Five has been playing in Rob Zombie's band since 2005 and has been the longest-running member of the group. We asked Zombie what makes for a great band member: "What makes a great band member is someone who knows their place in the band. 'Cause usually the fighting comes from someone wanting to - they always think, 'Well, you're doing that so I should do that' or 'why don't I do this' or 'you just use his songs and not my songs.' And when people are smart enough to know, 'There's only four spots and I have one of them, and I should be happy,' and it doesn't diminish their role in any way, that's what makes for a great band member, you know."
    • John Five will release his eighth solo album, titled Careful With That Axe, on August 12th -- a different record from the one he did with Roth.
    • Roth himself is reportedly at work with Van Halen on that band's 13th studio album.
    • John Five, Rob Zombie and the rest of Zombie's band will start a short fall tour on September 8th in Portland, Oregon.

  • COREY TAYLOR ON RECORDING THE NEW SLIPKNOT ALBUM: 'WE KNEW IT WAS GONNA BE HEAVY'

    Slipknot has finished recording its fifth studio album and first since 2008's All Hope Is Gone. The disc is also the band's first without late bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was dismissed in late 2013. Singer Corey Taylor told HardDrive with Lou Brutus about recording for the first time without two key members: "It was interesting. We knew it was gonna be heavy. We knew it was gonna be one of those things where it's like, 'Okay, we're in uncharted territory right now, so what do we do?' You know. And Jim (Root, guitarist) and Clown (Shawn Crahan, percussionist) really stepped up, you know. They kind of started leading the charge and really getting stuff together. So by the time we really got into the studio, we had a really great template of music to check out."

    • There is no word yet on the album's title or release date, but a single is expected to arrive sometime soon.
    • Reports have suggested that Slipknot has recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album and tour. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band drummer.
    • The second edition of Slipknot's Knotfest event will take place on October 24th, 25th and 26th in San Bernardino, California. More than two dozen other acts will join the headliners, including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Of Mice And Men, In This Moment, Hellyeah, Atreyu and many others.

  • JACK WHITE LAUNCHES PUBLISHING ARM OF THIRD MAN

    Jack White's Third Man Records is now launching its own publishing arm called Third Man Books. Its first offering is called Language Lessons: Volume 1 and is described as a 321-page hardback collection of prose and poetry from more than 20 acclaimed authors, including Pulitzer Prize fiction nominee Dale Ray Phillips, National Book Award finalist C.D Wright and punk rock icon Richard Hell.

    Of course, since this is a Third Man release, the book will come in a box set also containing two vinyl LPs of previously unheard blues, pop, jazz and psychedelic punk from an eclectic group of artists, along with five frameable posters combining original poetry and art.

    • Language Lessons is available for pre-order on the Third Man website, and will be available at certain bookstores and record shops upon its release on August 5th.
    • Third Man will also preview the book on Saturday, July 26th during the Newport Folk Festival, where White is also a headliner. The book event will feature readings from contributors.
    • White's second solo album, Lazaretto, recently earned the former White Stripes frontman his second Number One debut on the Billboard album chart, selling 138,000 copies in its first week of release last month.
    • White just kicked off a lengthy North American trek that brings him to Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday (July 23rd and 24th).

  • DOES OZZY OSBOURNE HAVE A NEW SOLO ALBUM IN THE WORKS?

    Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne has asked his fans to "help unscramble Ozzy's new cover art by using the hashtag #OzzyRules on Facebook and Twitter. The more you share the sooner it unlocks." It is unclear, however, what the cover art in question will be used for, although it could be for a new solo studio album. Ozzy's last studio effort on his own, Scream, came out in 2010.

    • Ozzy's touring guitarist, Gus G., told Noisefull in a recent interview, "Ozzy wants to do another solo album, that's for sure. As far as I know, he has a contract for three more solo albums, so I don't know when he will finish them, if he'll do them and if I'm going to be a part of it, but I definitely know that he wants to do one more solo album."
    • Ozzy's last two solo sets, Scream and 2007's Black Rain, were recorded in his home studio. He told us a while back that working that way had its pros and cons: "I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing, because in one respect you go, 'If only I had more time to do an album, maybe I could do a better album.' But then if you've got unlimited time, the urgency's not there. At the end of the day the end result was pretty cool, but I don't know whether I want to continue to do it that way. I'd like to jam out with the band and get some, like, vibe going, you know. I want to incorporate that and this new technology thing."
    • Ozzy stated in 2011 that he had started working on ideas for a new solo set, but that was before Black Sabbath reunited to record the album 13, issue it last year and tour the world.
    • Sabbath played its last show of the 13 touring cycle on July 4th in London, although the band members have indicated that they are interested in making another studio album together and continuing to tour.

  • CAMERON DIAZ ENDS INTERVIEW EARLY AFTER DREW BARRYMORE COMMENT

    Cameron Diaz abruptly ended an interview on Australia's popular radio show, Kyle & Jackie O, on Monday (July 21st) over a comment about Drew Barrymore. The interview was going smoothly until co-host Kyle Sandilands compared Giselle Eisenberg, Cameron's on-screen daughter in Sex Tape, to Drew in E.T.

    Cameron agreed with the comparison but then Kyle added, "Let's hope she misses out on the Drew Barrymore drug years, because those were a great thing to watch, but not so good to be in, I'd imagine." Drew's former Charlie's Angels co-star responded, "I'm sure, Kyle, you've never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations."

    • The host attempted to move the conversation along to different topics including her relationship with Benji Madden but Diaz jumped in saying, "We're having to go now. "Sorry, they're wrapping us up."
    • Co-host Jackie O announced, "Well, that started very well and ended poorly, I think. Good one, Kyle. You ruined that interview. Sorry to be blunt. You brought up Drew Barrymore, her best friend's drug addiction in the past. She's her best friend. And then you brought up Benji. We all know how protective Cameron is about her private life."

  • JASON BIGGS DOESN'T THINK 'AMERICAN PIE' COULD WORK TODAY

    Jason Biggs may have launched his career is the raunchy sex comedy, American Pie, but he does not believe that a movie like that would be successful if it were made today. The Orange is the New Black actor stopped by HuffPost Live where he explained what has changed for the teenage generation since Pie was released back in 1999.

    Jason told the website, "Specifically for that demographic, there's now so much more. The internet has really provided so much more distraction, and I also think teenagers especially have kind of been anesthetized to a lot. Then, it was like, 'Whoa, he put his penis in what?' Now, it's like, 'Oh, yeah, sure, of course he did.'"

    • Biggs and his co-stars returned for the third Pie sequel, American Reunion, back in 2012.

  • EMMA STONE ANNOYED COLIN FIRTH WITH TEXTS ABOUT 'BRIDGET JONES'

    Emma Stone managed to get under Colin Firth's skin by texting him while she was watching his movie, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The 25-year-old actress chatted with The Daily Beast about her obsession with her Magic in the Moonlight co-star's film career and what she did to push his buttons.

    Emma told the website, "I've seen Love Actually about 18 times. I've seen Bridget Jones too many times now. You were so upset with me! I live-texted Colin the plot of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason a few months back while I was watching it. You were very upset with me, if I remember correctly. I talked him through what he was doing." Colin jumped in and explained, "She's talking through my back catalog via text! I might decide to not revisit stuff in the past, and then you get a good friend saying, 'Oh, when you were doing this you had this and that expression on your face.'"

    • The Easy A actress went on to poke fun at Colin by quoting Bridget Jones saying, "I like you very much...just as you are."
