Just learned through my favorite news source, Fark, that Gene Simmons has new solo album coming out. A**hole hits the stories this Tuesday. Alleged guests and collaborators include Bob Dylan, and the entire Zappa family. More preview info here.
What do you get when mix G’n’R with Stone Temple Pilots? Hmm, Velvet Revolver. A review of their first album, Contraband is here. I’ve listening to some mp3 samples and its pretty interesting if not good. Unfortunately, I’d classify them more as a heavier version of STP than updated G’n’R.
