Quick News

Anthony Kiedis told Spin Magazine the title of the Red Hot Chili Peppers latest release and hold on to your hats... The new Chili Peppers album will be called, Dr. Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head. Kiedis does have an explanation, he says "He was reminiscing about one of his legendary acid trips, and told us that he had been playing a sold-out show to the planets and moons, and his #1 hit was, well, that title. We found it so funny that we told him for as long as the album was under the radar, that that would be our nickname for it." Dr. Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-Head arrives this summer.

Soundgarden will finally be entering into the studio this year (and for the first time this century) to record new material. The band, who have been laying low since last summer's Lollapalooza festival will release a live album this spring and at that time they will enter the studio.

Jack White will not form another band. Yes, you heard right, Mr. White, who's main band The White Stripes split a few weeks ago and who has been recording with The Raconteurs and Dead Weather will not start a new band. White tells Q, "If I can't say it in any of these bands, then I'll say it by myself," meaning he will start a solo project. Knowing Jack, we will be hearing much from him, no matter what form for a while.
