Marilyn Manson to Join Ozzy Osbourne on Tour!
Osbourne had started the “No More Tours 2” with Stone Sour supporting, but Corey Taylor returned to Slipknot to support their latest effort “We Are Not Your Kind” and so therefore Marilyn Manson ahs stepped up. Osbourne would praise Manson saying
“Marilyn is killer live,” , “He’s so out there, and if I think that, then look out, we’re all screwed.”
Manson commented, “I’ve toured with Ozzy many times and it’s always been spectacular. I’m honored to do it again. This is one not to miss.”
The North American tour leg will resume on May 27 in Atlanta.

Scott Weiland’s Widow Jamie Weiland Is Selling His Velvet Revolver Hats
Scott Weiland’s widow Jamie Weiland is selling two of his VELVET REVOLVER-era hats on eBay, each with a starting bid of $3,500.
TheeBay auction page reads: “Scott Weiland’s Black and Red Skull Hat from VELVET REVOLVER Days – Authentic. This hat was gifted to me by my late husband before he passed. It has been protected from light, dust, etc. in a container in my home. A certificate of authenticity will be included. Please message me if you have any questions.”
Jamie went on Instagram to explain why she is selling those hats She wrote: “My husband gifted these to me years ago and they’ve been carefully cared for, and despite my affinity for #hats I never wore them. I am selling them – they’re on eBay and the auction closes soon. I would prefer to, of course, keep them but due to some not fun changes in my life, I need to part with them. If you’re interested please let me know and I’ll send you the link. Much love #scottweiland #velvetrevolver.”
Several years ago, Jamie filed a claim against Scott’s estate, claiming she was owed $64,406 as per the prenuptial agreement they had signed. Jamie said she and Scott signed a prenuptial agreement before their 2013 wedding which provided that the musician would put $2,000 into a separate account each month that they were married, with a provision that the amount would increase by seven percent annually. Only made two deposits by the time Weiland died in December 2015.
Guns N’ Roses End Their Current Leg of the “Not in This Lifetime Tour”
Guns N’ Roses played their final show of the “Not in This Life Time” Tour at Caesar’s Palace the previous night and now the band is off until March of next year. The band has een on the road since late September. I doubt we’ll see much going on in the Guns N’ Roses camp until they start up with their upcoming tour in March across South America. My sources tell me that there will be a European run next summer, which makes sense. Check out a full recap of last night’s show here.
Moderator on MYGNRForum Sheds Light on the Copyright Takedowns
A moderator on the MyGNRForum, Downzy locked a thread discussing Guns N’ Roses management’s response to the YouTube takedowns. Prior to locking the thread he offered some more background on the controversy saying the following
Okay, we’re going to put pause on this conversation for awhile. This thread has become pretty ugly and I think some time off is needed for everyone (including myself).
A couple of things…
People can believe what they want in the absence of any clear communication or statement by the band or management (Beta’s comments notwithstanding). We have made numerous overtures to band management that this issue requires clarification on their part and they have chose to remain quiet publicly (again, save for Beta’s comment that I would surmise was not fully informed at the time she made it).
They have mentioned a few things “off the record” and I feel obligated to respect that fact despite the total lack of respect shown of late to this forum, its staff, or the online community by management.
I can say unequivocally that the LLC used to take down videos last year (spring of 2018) was connected by GNR or GNR management and was co-opted by an individual who I won’t name here (but really, we all know who I’m talking about). When this was brought management’s attention, the LLC was immediately shut down.
Obviously this did not solve the problem as the rate of takedowns grew exponentially using various trade organizations like the RIAA and IFPI. And to provide a little context, when this was brought to management’s attention, one of the first questions we got back was “What is the IFPI?”
There are working theories on how all of this transpired. Personally I do not subscribe to the notion that the individual in question was given direction by management to take down the videos. But others, including those on our staff, hold different views.
