Glenn Frey, founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, has died at 67. Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November & in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had been fighting intestinal issues for awhile but his condition relapsed before the holidays, forcing the Eagles to pull out of their Kennedy Center Honors appearance in December. At the time, the band said he needed major surgery that would require a lengthy recovery.
RIP Glenn. :-( *Ronni*
Sad news to report, as Static-X frontman Wayne Static‘s widow, Tera Wray Static, has died from an apparent suicide at age 33.

Wayne Static died on Nov. 1, 2014 from a multiple toxicity overdose at the age of 48. Having struggled with alcohol and drug abuse for many years, a combination of oxycodone, hydromorphone, alprazolam and alcohol took Static’s life.

Tera Wray Static was the one who found Wayne dead, after the Static-X frontman passed away in his sleep. The two were practically attached at the hip, with Wray appearing with Wayne in many interviews and even onstage with Static-X and Wayne’s solo project as a dancer. Wayne and Tera met in 2007 during Ozzfest while she was modeling for Hustler lingerie. They married the following year and Tera retired from being am adult film actress shortly after.

Wray’s former adult entertainment attorney Michael Fattorosi tweeted about Tera’s death, confirming a story that was posted on Blabbermouth:
"I’m so sad today. My client & friend Tera Wray, former Pornstar and the widow of Wayne Static committed suicide yesterday. We were emailing back & forth on Tuesday. And today I got a call from her roommate letting me know what happened. Tera is once again with the love of her life, Wayne, & will be forever. May they both find peace together for all of eternity. Godspeed Tera."

It feels impossible to imagine an incarnation of Motorhead to exist that doesn’t involve Lemmy Kilmister. After 40 years of pure rock ‘n’ roll, Lemmy succumbed to “an extremely aggressive cancer” on Dec. 28. In a new interview with Sweden’s Expressen, Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee has confirmed the band is finished.

“Motorhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motorhead,” Dee says. “We won’t be doing any more tours or anything. And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.”

At 69 years of age, Lemmy battled through a serious lung infection to complete Motorhead’s 2015 international tour dates. Though a few shows had to be cancelled, some mid-performance, Lemmy gave everything he could to the audience. ”He was terribly gaunt, he spent all his energy onstage and afterwards he was very, very tired,” Mikkey says. ”It’s incredible that he could even play, that he could finish the Europe tour. It was only 20 days ago. Unbelievable.”

Mikkey adds, ”I’m incredibly grateful over the years we had, and that we had such a good time together.”
Lemmy passed away just days after celebrating his 70th birthday. The outpouring of love from fans and fellow musicians has been overwhelming to say the least.

Here is a small percentage of those tributes here.

Ah, the gift of giving! This is something Metallica understand well, constantly engaged with their fans and always serving up something special for the ones who have made the band the undisputed titans they are today. In the spirit of the holidays, the thrash quartet have unleashed a clip of a new Metallica song for their fan club members so the whole family can sway to Metallica’s beat as they rock around the Christmas tree.

The video clips opens up with James Hetfield wishing everyone happy holidays as he holds his ever-squirming cat Tabs in his arms. As a gift, he has the furry feline hit play on the computer to reveal a snippet of a new Metallica song! As soon as the song starts, Hetfield can’t help but exclaim a signature “Oh yeah!” as he’s excited at the chance to share it with the fans. The snippet features a trashy riff along with Hetfield’s signature vocals. The sneak preview is for Met Club members only, but membership is free! To view the clip, click here, and if you aren’t in the Met Club, a link is available to sign up right on the page.

Next year will be a big one for Metallica. In addition to what all hope will yield a new album, the year will also mark the 30th anniversary of Master of Puppets. That album is one of the cornerstones of the metal canon and the last to feature late bassist Cliff Burton. The band is readying a photo book to commemorate the anniversary, full of never before seen photos from the band’s personal archives as well as extensive interviews from the band, crew members from the tour and more.

Looks like we’ll be getting a new album from Rob Zombie in 2016! Zombie has shared the album art for The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser and posted a video entitled “Electric Warlock” on YouTube, teasing that “something is coming,” along with the date Jan. 11.

Rob Zombie spent much of 2015 on the road and promoting his upcoming sixth solo album. We can’t confirm a release date yet, but the record will be out in 2016. Additionally, a minute of new music from Zombie has been unveiled.

The new track, which we assume is the album’s title track, is pretty straight forward, with Rob Zombie repeating, “Electric warlock / Acid witch,” multiple times. What’s more complex is the heavy industrial elements of the instrumental section, which is some of the heaviest stuff Rob Zombie has ever put to tape.

Guitarist John 5 has put in a lot of work helping Zombie craft this album and now you can hear what the multidimensional shredder has been toying with. “We’ll just lay down really loose structures,” Zombie told us at the 2015 Loudwire Music Festival. “The songs kind of always piece together something pretty raw. Then we’ll let it sit and I’ll do vocals over that … Once I get the vocals on there, then usually John will come back and add another layer where he’ll then play guitars that go along with the vocals or accent things. We kind of keep bouncing back and forth.”

Check out the preview for “Electric Warlock” above and get excited for whatever may come on Jan. 11.
