For the record, I think what Rolling Stone magazine did by placing the Boston Marathon Terrorist on its cover looking like a rock star was just in poor taste. On my Facebook page and Twitter, I said to boycott the magazine. I still think it is not worthy of your hard earned money. Never liked the magazine with its snobbish attitude towards what the writers consider good rock and roll music. This just shows they have no class what so ever. I really hope this hits them hard. CVS pulled all of the issues of its shelves and I hear that other businesses are doing the same. I know they won’t go away but they should feel the pain they caused.

Paul Rodgers (Bad Company) has plans  to release a cover album of soul songs this year (why do a whole album of covers, I just hate that, one maybe two songs but a whole album, forget it, It’s a bad trend now). Also he is working on new material to be released early next year.

Slash has announced his movie soundtrack to his debut film release. The movie is Nothing Left To Fear, starring Anne Heche.

You can listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6thxzsimKo

The movie comes out on October 4th.

Last week’s Rockucation question was: Quiet Riot recorded two cover songs by this band. One of them put Quiet Riot on everyone’s radar. The second one was a hit also. Can you name the two songs and the band they are from? I couldn’t believe how much people struggled with this one but we did get the correct answer. The answer comes from two people who teamed up for this (first ever for the rock report). The answer is Slade, Cum On Feel The Noize and Momma Weer All Crazee Now.  The two people who brought it to you are: Suzanne Sledge of Atlanta, GA and Ace Aceto of  Coventry, RI.

Asking Alexandria released a new song called Killing You from their new record coming out on August 6th. The album is called From Death To Destiny. You can listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Ncdo9NEfCJI

Rise Against is streaming their new Journey cover, Any Way You Want It. Really, that’s what they decided to choose from them. The vocals are terrible by the way. Just my opinion.  This will be along with their new album release on September 10 called Long Forgotten Songs; B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013.  A 26 song collection. If this song is any sign of what the album is going to sound like, maybe they should be forgotten. But why another covers album, I ask again, doesn’t anyone want to write originals anymore?  Listen for yourselves here: https://soundcloud.com/iga-alt-promo/rise-against-anyway-you-want

Lamb Of God, Killswitch Engage and Testament have announced a fall tour. You can get more details here: http://www.lamb-of-god.com/home
