Earlier this month at the Guitar World Roast of Zakk Wylde, Revolver TV was on hand to talk to all the stars as they made their way down the Red Carpet.

Earlier today, it was announced that Slipknot will headline the 5th annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band wasted no time in posting a special promo video for their festival appearance featuring drummer Shawn "Clown" Crahan.
It has now officially been announced that Iowa's heaviest export will indeed be headlining the main stage, with a stellar lineup in tow. Hitting the stage directly before Slipknot will be thrash titans Slayer, who will follow a special guest that will be announced on March 5.
Guitar World visited the Ibanez booth at last week's Winter NAMM show to see two versions of their new Mick Thomson Signature model guitars. Slipknot are headlining the Mayhem Festival this summer, and Thomson will actually be using the black version of the guitar with the "Seven" inlay. It features a neck-through design and Seymour Duncan pickups. On the left in the video is a Blood Red budget version of the model.
Squier is excited to introduce three new artist signature models, the Avril Lavigne Telecaster®, the Jim Root Telecaster®, and the Mikey Way Mustang® Bass. The three signature models promise star-like vibe and tone at incredible Squier value.
