According to Rock News Desk, a group of local business owners in the Bronx, New York are concerned about the possibility of rioting related to the upcoming Big Four show at Yankee Stadium on September 13.
This latest story comes from Revolver's Big Four issue (which you can pick up here), in which Slayer's Kerry King and Tom Araya, Anthrax's Charlie Benante and Metallica's Lars Ulrich remember the Clash of the Titans tour, and discuss what makes the "Big Four" so special. An excerpt follows:
Beginning tonight -- Monday, August 22 -- with Albert Lee and John Jorgenson's performance with The Les Paul Trio, The Iridium Jazz Club in New York City is giving people around the world a chance to check out what Guitar World magazine calls "the city's — if not the country's — new home of the guitar."
Don't get your hopes up just yet, Van Halen fans. Last week, rumors were flying that a new Van Halen track, titled "Late Term," would surface this week, with many claiming the track had already leaked online.
The new band from John Arch (ex-Fates Warning) and Jim Matheos (Fates Warning) -- appropriately titled Arch/Matheos -- will release their debut album, Sympathetic Resonance, on September 13 via Metal Blade Records.
