Guns N’ Roses – The General

Guns N’ Roses is releasing a new single called “The General.” The song is a B-Side of the band’s limited edition seven-inch vinyl single, “Perhaps” that was made available for preorder last August.

The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles was the first place the son was played, prompting singer Axl Rose to declare about the performance “it could be interesting.

The song has its roots in the tracking for the album “Chinese Democracy” and is considered one of Guns N’ Roses’ heavier songs, grinding and screaming.

Peter Criss Reminiscing

Original KISS drummer Peter Criss had time to look back as the last KISS tour ever will be winding up in Madison Square garden. Overall, he was amazed that the original group had managed to achieve what they did over the years, yet he was disappointed that the current lineup hasn’t invited them back anywhere on the tour to play a couple of the old songs. However, Criss is in a good place in his life.

“There were so many glorious years and the four of us created some really fun tunes and have the most incredible fanbase a band could ever have. We are truly fortunate to have our fans all these years. Thank you KISS Army for the life that you gave me and the life that you gave all of us in KISS.” Criss said.

Aaron Lewis’ Voice

Like most activities, a lifetime of doing something can wear on the body. So is the case with Aaron Lewis of Stained, who’s had to postpone the balance of his 2023 solo concert to rest his vocal chords.

About the decision, Lewis stated, “Life has reminded me I’m creeping up on 52. After recording a new STAIND album, a new solo album and playing 150-plus shows this year, my doctors have insisted I take this month off to give my voice some much needed rest before I do damage to my cords. It kills me to say this, but I have to listen to the professionals. Have a great holiday season and I look forward to seeing everyone in 2024.”
