The oldest rock band in the world

The Zimmers. A rock band made up of senior citizens is making a bid for chart success to prove that older people have still got what it takes. They are my type of people.

Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence

I’ve never been a huge Disturbed fan, but this song was well covered. Worth a downloadSimon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence is over half a century old now, but they managed to put a fresh spin on it.

 

VIDEO: Steve Harvey screws up and crowns wrong woman Miss Universe

Job opening. During Sunday night’s Miss Universe, Steve Harvey called out the wrong winner in a highly publicized live mistake.

The host called out Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the highly publicized competition. Except Gutierrez wasn’t the winner. Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was.

Any volunteers to help console Miss Columbia today?

If that wasn’t bad enough, a Harvey went and doubled down on idiocy and pissed off the internet by misspelling two countries.

Loaded and NME are reporting that an insider source close to the band have said the original members will headline two UK festivals in 2017 (The Isle Of Wight and Download Festival). If these shows go well, and Axl and Slash can remain friendly, the U.S. will almost definitely see a tour from the band. A reunited Guns N’ Roses tour would likely shatter gross earnings records held by U2 and The Rolling Stones.

Rumors that Guns N’ Roses will reunite in 2016 recently increased after the band began selling new merchandise that features the group’s original line-up.

Blankets and a hockey jersey emblazoned with the band’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’ album cover were placed online. Cartoon versions of the five original band members as skeletons were also made available.

Slash and Axl Rose have previously feuded over the trademarks of the band’s old logos in the past, suggesting that the pair have come to an agreement of some sort to sell the new merchandise.

Gunnar Hansen who played Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s iconic splatterpunk film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) has died at age 68. Inspired by serial killer Ed Gein, Leatherface wore a mask of human skin.

The Icelandic-born actor was an unknown graduate student in Texas when director Tobe Hooper cast him in the low-budget horror film, which became a cult hit and spawned three sequels, two remakes and a prequel.

Hansen died Saturday evening of pancreatic cancer at his home in Northeast Harbor, Maine, according to his agent, Mike Eisenstadt, who described Hansen’s “Chainsaw” character as “one of the most iconic evil figures in the history of cinema.”
