    It has been standard practise since drum machines were first invented in the early '80s. Well, maybe not standard, but commonplace.

    A lot of music gets written on guitars by bands, or sometimes...

    The story as it was relayed to me was that although the band was not keen to work with a sub-par Bill Ward, the deal-killer was the fact he couldn't play a full set. They offered him some sort of...

    I did hear that Bill can't actually play a full set anymore from a source close to the band and wasn't willing to attempt one, insisting he'd be in shape "in time for the tour" and seeming in denial...

    I am about to write a short piece on album sale certifications in the general discussion area, as so many people have so many questions about it.

  5. Some clarifying information on record sales, shipment certifications etc.

    Hey guys,

    I mentioned this in a post the other day to explain some confusion some people were having and have noticed it as a frequent point of curiosity on here (another thread about it today!)...

    Before the gig they had a girl talking to the crowd saying "do you have a message for the DVD?" and "where have you come from then?" and stuff. I managed to avoid eye contact and not have to say...

    Review + pics of the gig (my review, photography by a fellow named Dave Timmins)

    On the whole "definitive line-up" and drummer topic in general, I would rather see Guns N' Roses reunion tour with Matt Sorum than Steven Adler. I like his drumming more, he's in better shape, he's...

    Yeah Tony's made it clear he did not enjoy the recording process and he thinks it is a bad album. Not to mention it is also the lowest selling one he was involved in.

    By virtue of being the last...

    I haven't listened to it in a while so I can't really comment, but I stand by what I said at the time.

    I was really impressed. His acoustic guitarist played on his latest (horrid) album yet proved to be a great player. I hope that album was just a blip.

    Support act was Blaze Bayley (Wolfsbane, ex-Iron Maiden) doing a special acoustic set - http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/blaze-bayley/2012/the-asylum-birmingham-england-7bdcfe9c.html

    Blaze did an ace...

    It was an incredible gig. I've never heard a guitarist or bassist get Sabbath stuff so right, and Martin's voice was perfect. Drummer Danny Needham was nothing exciting but did the job well enough,...

    What, in the middle of an interview he said that to the guy?

    In my defence, I attempted to.

    Generally if you ask him one question, he'll answer a different one.

    He was an easy talker, good conversation, but it was not a very focussed discussion. I felt...

    We spoke for an hour. About 20 minutes of it was discussion about the current state of the music industry, Tony's views on file-sharing, Spotify,...

    I'm looking over the questions in that other article now :)
  19. Interviewing Tony Martin tomorrow morning - anyone got any questions they want asked?

    I'll fit in anything I deem appropriate, if anyone has anything :)

    I think there's a huge difference between moshing, pitting, headbanging, singing and partaking in walls of death and.....being too drunk.

    Being too drunk isn't acceptable anywhere because no one...

    Really, people think this is a cash grab?

    Dio used to perform to venues varying from audiences of 500 to 5000 near the end of his career. A tribute act will be significantly smaller in scale.

    I was on Iommi's side. Wasn't just my bit where there were no pits and things, I couldn't see any either, on any of my side of stage.

    The right side of the stage at Download is always more sparse...

    It was overdubbed.

    My friend Bruce is on go-for-a-pint-sometimes terms with Iommi's producer and got the information from him. Infact when they met up shortly after the album was put out, first...

    15, 000 is optimistic. I'd say 10k would be a heavy achievement. Ringo Starr's most recent album sold less than 15k globally, and he's a far more famous "drummer who used to be in a legendary band".

    Most impressive thing here was how pleasant the crowd were. I was in around the third row and everyone was....there was headbanging, there was jumping around, but no circle pits and no moshing. My...
