A Perfect Circle are Definitely Back

Sorry for the brief hiatus, I've been busy with other things and a few news items here and there have occured but all are overshadowed by one thing. The fact that A Perfect Circle are definitely back and as wonderful as ever. The band performed live on the Kimmy Kimmel Show last night. They performed 4 songs in total, only which one and a half were televised. They sounded as tight as ever and Matt McJunkins seems to be filling in well as the new bassist.

Nikki Sixx To Release 'This Is Gonna Hurt' Book/CD In March

Better late than never for this news!

Motley Crue and Sixx: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx is slated to release his new book
'This Is Gonna Hurt' through HarperCollins' William Morrow imprint on March
23rd, 2011.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Heroin Dairies,
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx, refuses to become a sanitized PSA for suburban
mothers; instead, he has found strength and inspiration in his pain and
sobriety, and in this raw and powerful book gives us a glimpse inside his sick
and dirty mind

This Is Gonna Hurt includes a Foreword by Kat Von D on
"Love and Inspiration."

Following the success of the New York Times
bestseller The Heroin Diaries, the author's solo band, Sixx A.M., is recording
an album to be released in conjunction with This Is Gonna Hurt. Some of the
songs were inspired by the author's photographs; others inspired photographs of
their own.

This Is Gonna Hurt will include more than two dozen of the
author's images. He will incorporate the stories behind the pictures and how
they came to be, including interviews with the subjects so readers can see "what
life is like for those whom society has labeled as freaks."

"I've always
had an eye for the oddities in life. Even as a kid I saw the world in my own way
and thought most things that were different were beautiful and magical. Even
things that other people thought were horrifying and disgusting and weird. . . .
People say I have a distorted lens. I think I see things as they really are." --
Nikki Sixx

Few of us have experienced life with the intensity, fury, and
reckless abandon of Nikki Sixx, the wild rock star, driven entrepreneur, devoted
father, former addict, bestselling author, and gifted photographer.

Is Gonna Hurt is part photo, part journal--but all Nikki Sixx. It is a
collection of compelling snapshots and stories that capture the rage, love,
optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Told with the raw
authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller The Heroine Diaries,
This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx's experience, from his early years filled
with toxic waste to his success with Motley Crue, his death from an OD and
rebirth to his addictions to music, photography, and love.

Love story,
bad-ass rock tell-all, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt
offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive,
connect, and find a happy ending--a search that fuels Sixx's being. "I want to
take you on the journey I am on, in real time," Sixx writes. "If you don't deal
with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's gonna hurt."

Radiohead News - New Album Completion

Well it seems that a year's worth of hard work for the almighty Radiohead has news to deliver now.

According to a new essay by Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood for UK
organization Index on Censorship, the band "have just finished another group of
songs, and have begun to wonder about how to release them in a digital landscape
that has changed again." When we spoke with the group's drummer Phil Selway back
in July, he said Radiohead were "slap dab in the middle of" making their new
album. Now, they seem to be done. (A spokesperson for the band had no further
comment on Greenwood's statement.)
