  • Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is featured in a long-in-the-works documentary called All Things Must Pass, which chronicles the history of the legendary music store chain Tower Records. The film is finally getting released on October 15th after being screened earlier this year at the South By Southwest Festival and a trailer is now online. The movie has been directed by Colin Hanks, son of actor Tom Hanks.

    Grohl himself told us a while back that he once worked at a legendary and now-defunct record store: "I worked at Tower Records when I was 18, 19, something like that, in Washington D.C. It was pretty fun. I always looked at Tower as the place you could get a job if you had a really funky haircut. Maybe you could get a job at the construction warehouse, but you'd kind of rather be surrounded by music."

  • Hanks began working on the film in 2008, but struggled to find money for it until a 2011 Kickstarter campaign raised $98,000.
  • The film focuses on Tower founder Russ Solomon, who launched the first Tower store in Sacramento, California in 1960. The outlet later expanded to San Francisco, Los Angeles and locations all over the world, before eventually going bankrupt in 2006.
  • Others featured in the documentary include Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and record industry executives David Geffen and Jim Urie, as well as Solomon and members of the Tower staff.

  • Five Finger Death Punch is streaming its new album, Got Your Six, in its entirety at Pandora.com. The disc is streaming from now until Thursday (September 3rd) at 7:00 p.m. ET. The album arrives on Friday (September 4th) and follows up the 2013 double disc release The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell.

    Even after making a double album and touring for a year, Five Finger Death Punch has come back relatively quickly with Got Your Six. Guitarist Jason Hook told us he's always ready to start making new music: "I have a whole studio here at my house. I'm always writing and recording music anyway, so at any given time, I'm kind of ready to go. You can never have enough soon enough, and so I just learned early on, always be preparing. So when it comes time to pull the trigger, I mean, we could go in and track eight songs pretty much right out of the gate. And then, you know, start writing a few more and boom, record's being finished."

    • Guitarist Zoltan Bathory said about the partnership with Pandora, "I'm an avid Pandora user, so I was very exciting when Pandora approached us and we learned that five million fans to date have created Five Finger Death Punch stations on their platform -- so working with them on debuting Got Your Six seemed like a natural fit."
    • Got Your Six is available at the band's website for pre-order in standard and deluxe versions, including several different merchandise packages.
    • The first single, called "Jekyll & Hyde," is currently Number Four on the rock radio airplay chart.
    • Five Finger Death Punch begins a fall co-headlining tour with Papa Roach on September 4th in Lexington, Kentucky, winding down on October 9 in Glen Falls, New York. Also on the trek will be In This Moment and From Ashes To New.

  • Of Mice And Men has canceled its upcoming performance at the Louder Than Life Festival on October 3rd in Louisville, Kentucky due to frontman Austin Carlile's ongoing recovery from recent surgery. Previously postponed gigs in Mexico City and San Diego are now permanently canceled as well. The band said in a statement, "It is important that we allow (Carlile) time to recover so that we may come back in 2016 stronger than ever. Refunds for the Mexico City and San Diego shows can be sought at their point of purchase."

    • Of Mice And Men's next scheduled concert is not until November 21st at Ozzfest Japan.
    • Carlile went under the knife in June after canceling several shows to correct problems he was experiencing as a result of having Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the connective tissue in the body and can lead to defects in the heart and even death if not properly managed.
    • Carlile has been in recovery and physical therapy throughout the summer, tweeting in mid-July that he was going to therapy three times a week.
    • Carlile was hospitalized abruptly on June 6th, forcing the band to cancel several shows.
    • Of Mice And Men's current single, "Never Giving Up," is Number 21 on the rock radio airplay chart this week,


  • Trapt frontman Chris Brown has issued a video in which he addressed the rage-filled and derogatory comments he has been spewing on social networks lately, saying that a lot of it had to do with a recently resolved lawsuit with ex-guitarist Simon Ormandy over past royalties. Brown directed his venom at Trapt fans online and the band Dangerkids among others, but has since been working to clear the air and explain his actions.

    Speaking about the lawsuit with Ormandy, Brown explained, "You put that kind of stress on an artist and it doesn’t work. It’s crazy, because we finally got done with this album in April of this year. All of these lyrics, everything, the album just poured out of me. It was an amazing emotion that it came back to me. For a year and a half, I was numb."

    • Speaking about an incident involving an uncredited video posting, Brown said, "I think the biggest thing you have to do for yourself is collect yourself and realize that you’re in a position where people are looking up to you. You do have to be the bigger person, no doubt. If you say something derogatory because you’re angry -- I called someone a butt boy. I knew it was wrong . . . I should have never said it. I felt bad."
    • He continued, "Little things like that, people can get under your skin and you can say something publicly that you should never say. That bums me out, that I stooped down to that level just to get my anger out."
    • Brown addressed his other feuds in the video as well.
    • Trapt has just put out a video for their track "Human (Like The Rest Of Us)" from their new album DNA, due in October. The new song follows up the current single, "Passenger."

      Robin and Ben were first linked together back in 2012 and engaged in January of 2014. The engagement was initially called off the following November reportedly because of their busy schedules. They were spotted walking hand-in-hand together in January of this year.

      • She also discussed the relationship to Vanity Fair back in March saying, "Perhaps it's not ladylike, but I've never laughed more, read more or come more than with Ben. He inspires me to be the best of myself. There's so much to learn. It's endless. How great!"

    • BIRTH MOTHER OF ROSIE O'DONNELL'S DAUGHTER DENIES SHE IS MENTALL ILL

      The birth mother of Rosie O'Donnell's adopted daughter, Chelsea, is denying the comedian's claims that she has mental issues. Chelsea left Rosie's house last week on her 18th birthday to live with her birth mom, Deanna Micoley, in Wisconsin.

      Deanna told Daily Mail, "Chelsea didn't want any more attention after everything with Rosie saying that she had a mental illness. There's nothing wrong with her. She's out with family right now and she's great." She added, "I would just shake my head at Rosie at this point. I don't think Chelsea has mental illness and I don't think medication is something that she definitely needs."

      • Chelsea was given up for adoption by Deanna back in 1997 when she was two months old. Deanna also spoke on the adoption saying, "My point of view is that I didn't give up my daughter for adoption. I was married to a guy, Lance, who was into the drug situation and he shot me up with heroin and had me sign away my rights. So I guess my name's on a piece of paper but I was not in my right mind to sign those papers. It took a long time for me to come to some understanding about it. You have your daughter for two months and then she's just ripped from you...It's hard. In Rosie's blogs she's written about Chelsea asking for her 'tummy mummy' when she was just four. I'm grateful that Rosie told her about me at least. It was a one-way street - I didn't know anything about her -- but she's always wanted me."
      • TMZ reported last week that Rosie has cut off Chelsea financially since she has moved out.
      • Chelsea recently made headlines after running away from Rosie's home for a week but was found at the New Jersey home of a 25-year-old man whom she met on Tinder. He was arrested for child endangerment.
      • Rosie's rep said at the time of Chelsea's disappearance, "Chelsea, like millions of people, lives with mental illness. It has been a difficult road for Chelsea and her family, and they just want her back safe."
      • Rosie also tweeted that Chelsea had gone off her meds prior to running away and wrote after she was found, "When someone u love is drowning in the rapids -- u throw everything u can into the water -- hoping they will grab on -- stay afloat #believe"
