Punk-rock icon Iggy Pop and GRAMMY winner Josh Homme recently detailed their 2016 collaboration that resulted in the former's new studio album, Post Pop Depression, during an installment of the GRAMMY Museum's A Conversation With series.In an exclusive interview, the duo revealed the '90s shock rocker who sparked their introduction at a magazine photoshoot in 2001, among other topics.Between his exit from stoner rock groundbreakers Kyuss and the formation of Queens, Homme found himself with plenty of free time on his hands, and he decided to start up these get-togethers once more.
The GRAMMY nominee was rushed to a New York-area hospital, and will be flying back to his home in Los Angeles to recover from his injuries, The nine cancelled show dates were planned to take place between Oct. 14, and a spokesperson for the band has a released a statement saying the show will be rescheduled to a later date and that Manson hoped to return to the stage soon.Additional details about the nature of Manson's injuries have not been disclosed.Working at a breakneck pace, a total of six volumes were issued during a one-year period (1998-1999) for the indie label Man's Ruin, and featured input by the likes of Ben Shepherd (Soundgarden, Hater, Wellwater Conspiracy), John Mc Bain (Monster Magnet, Wellwater Conspiracy), Fred Drake (Earthlings), Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu), Alfredo Hernandez (Kyuss), Dave Catching (Earthlings), Chris Goss (Masters of Reality), and Pete Stahl (Wool, Earthlings), among others.In addition to being released on CD (each CD release paired two "volumes" together), the early entries in the series were also issued on double 10" vinyl.A radio station in Sydney held a contest giving five fans a chance to win tickets to see GRAMMY-winning metal masters Metallica during their Australian tour.
Metallica fan Marcello, donning a sleeveless Slipknot T-shirt, drew the "disgusting" contest challenge, which entailed eating a spoonful of gourmet dog food for two tickets. Queen is gearing up to release 15 remastered studio albums in 2011 as part of their newly signed record deal with Universal Music Group, signaling the end of their tenure with EMI Music Group.
Proving that "Nothing Else Matters" but Metallica tickets, Marcello scarfed down the chow in a manner that would have made Lemmy Kilmister proud. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band's storied career, their first five albums — — will be released in March.
While we give Marcello a 9.0 on the devil horn metal scale for this particular feat, we can only wonder what he would do for Slipknot tickets…. "We are very excited, after all this time, to be embarking on a new phase of our career, with a new record company, with new ideas, and new dreams," said guitarist Brian May.
5 Stephen Colbert (who graced the GRAMMY stage earlier this year) hosted special guest Elvis Costello on "The Colbert Report" and the duo teamed for the Everly Brothers' "All I Have To Do Is Dream," featuring a surprisingly serious attempt on Colbert's part.

Could this be part of a new late-night television duo trend?
