Music: Pantera Play First Show In 21 Years, Axl Rose, U2, Scott Weiland!

Pantera Play First Show In 21 Years.

Pantera’s comeback is official. The legendary rock band performed its highly-anticipated first show in 21 years over the weekend at the Heaven & Hell Festival near Mexico City. And while the rockers’ return was welcomed by fans everywhere, the band is being wary of calling it a reunion.


Long-time vocalist Philip Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown have been joined by new guitarist Zakk Wylde and drummer Charlie Benante. The new pair have stepped in for late members Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. The performance included songs from the band’s 1992 album “Vulgar Display of Power” and 1994’s “Far Beyond Driven,” as well a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan.”

The band is set to continue on throughout Central and South America before heading to Europe and joining Metallica in North America in 2023.

Axl Rose Won't Throw His Microphone Anymore After Wounding a Fan 


Someone always has to come along and ruin a good thing. For decades now, Axl Rose has ended Guns N' Roses shows by throwing his microphone into the crowd.



But during a recent show in Adelaide, Australia, some woman had to go and get HIT IN THE FACE by it and ended up with two black eyes and a bruised nose. And now . . . no more free microphones for us!



On Friday night, Axl Tweeted, quote, "We don't want anyone getting hurt or to somehow in any way hurt anyone at any of [our] shows anywhere.


"Having tossed the mic at the end of [our] show for over 30 years we always felt it was a known part of the very end of [our] performance that fans wanted and were aware of to have an opportunity to catch the mic."



"Regardless, in the interest of public safety from now on, we'll refrain from tossing the mic or anything to the fans during or at [our] performances."

Elon Musk Suspended Kanye's Twitter, and Jack White Went After Him for It 



As you've probably heard, Elon Musk suspended Kanye West from Twitter after he posted a picture of a Star of David merged with a swastika.

And then Musk got dragged by Jack White. Not for banning Kanye . . . but for his very mixed, muddled, and seat-of-your-pants messaging when it comes to "free speech." And also for still letting Donald Trump Tweet when, according to Jack, he's just as bad.



Jack said, quote, "So Elon, how's that 'free speech' thing working out? Oh, I see, so you have to CHOOSE who gets free speech and who doesn't then?"


He added, quote, "It's nice to watch in real-time as you learn that all things need to be regulated, whether that be guns, drugs, alcohol, assembly, or speech, because of the danger of someone or something being hurt or destroyed.



"They're sometimes called 'laws'. And perhaps you're learning how harmful it can be when you let dangerous, hateful people say whatever they want on your stage."

Scott Weiland's Widow Pens "Impossible" Birthday Tribute

Late rocker Scott Weiland’s widow has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to her husband. Jamie Weiland posted a picture of the “Stone Temple Pilots” singer with a message that read, in part: “Seven years since this beautiful soul departed and left so many who loved him behind. The most impossible man I’ve ever known.”


She went on to explain all the ways in which Weiland was “impossible,” including being unable to “understand his genius,” the depth of his love for his children, the occasional difficulty of their relationship, but also that “most of all he was impossible not to love.”


Weiland’s Velvet Revolver bandmate, Matt Sorum, also took to Instagram to honor the late great, saying: “It’s been seven years, and I wish you were here.”
