System of a Down Singer Serj Tankian Is a Recovering Video Game Addict 

SYSTEM OF A DOWN singer SERJ TANKIAN had to give up video games when his playing started to cause damage to his hands.



He was so addicted . . . particularly to "NBA Jam" . . . that it was getting hard to make music. But that didn't stop him from making music for video games.



In an interview with "Loudwire", Serj said, quote, "I'm not doing games now, but I love doing music for them."



His latest video game project was lending vocals to the soundtrack of "Metal: Hellsinger". The game hasn't come out yet, but it'll be for the PC or PlayStation 5.  (Click here for more info.)

The Cure Receives Icon Award At Ivor Novello Awards

During the Ivor Novello Awards ceremony in London, Robert Smith and Simon Gallup of The Cure were presented with the Icon Award by their long-time agent Martin Hopewell, who said that after meeting the band a half-century ago and agreeing to help them “makes one of the very few decisions I’ve made in my life that I don’t want to go back in time and give myself a clip around the ear for making.”

Gallup announced last August that he had left The Cure, saying he was feeling “fed up of betrayal,” but then told a fan in October that he was still a member of the band. He appeared onstage with Smith to accept the award but didn’t make an acceptance speech.
