CANTO: Kirk Hammett loses friends, Lita Ford shares secrets, and more

“Willingly guided into heresy. Beneath the surface, stark emptiness. And you’d pity my conviction, whereas I thought of myself as a leader.”

  • The doctor involved with the death of Slipknot‘s late bassist, Paul Gray, is heading to supreme court. A wrongful death suit has been filed against him.
  • Lita Ford‘s new book, Living Like A Runaway, will be available next week. In it, she discusses abuse issues within her relationship with Toni Iommi. Allegations at this point, but we will see how it develops.
  • Kirk Hammett has managed to piss off just about everyone. In a recent interview with Music Radar, he may have made the claim that he is the first guitarist to ever break into the pedal line. Which, well, yeah no.
  • Lots of serious stuff, so let’s lighten the situation up a bit. Any interest in a Gene Simmons mask? An authentic(?) version of The Demon can be all yours… for a slim grand.
  • SIG:AR:TYR are back! It’s been six years since they last released new music. Check out “Vinland” below.

Quickies: May 2, 2014

TDIF! (Thank Dio it’s Friday!) I don’t know about you lot, but I’m craving a weekend. And what better way to kick it off than with some news highlights from around the world of metal?

Okay, I can’t actually take that statement seriously, either. But regardless, here are today’s Quickies!

Keep it metal this weekend!
