What happened to Metal Sludge?!

It was a really cool site a few years ago. But man has it gone down hill since then. The 20 questions were pretty informative/funny. They are gone. They get all their news from other sites now. The message board was decent but no where near this one. I'm close to removing it from my favorites list.

I never did like Metal Sludge. To me it was a waste what they did with their resources. They could have been the best Hair Metal site hands down and they turned it into a tabloid. Tabloid crap annoys me and finding that they did it to Hair Metal didn't sit to well with me. Also, I didn't think Sludge even existed any more. The past couple days I've tried to go to the site it's said it was hacked.

IMO the site really started going downhill when Stevie revealed himself as the man behind the Sludge. The questions used to be pretty off the wall, bold and no-nonsense. Now it's all "how's your family, how's your dog, when was the last time you ate at Burger King" boring crap. I'm thinking the problem is Stevie doesn't have as much time to devote to the site as he used to and maybe a change in personnel at the Sludge site that aren't as funny/creative as previous personnel. I heven't checked the site out in probably a couple months.

Man, I used to look at this site every day... printed out the interviews and read them on the train. That was way back at my old, old job. Must be about 5 years now since I saw the site... haven't been back once since I left that job... which if I recall was pretty much when it was revealed it was Stevie Rachelle behind it. Or was that a few years after I'd already stopped...

They reported that Phil Lewis died in his sleep about a week ago, Phil replied with an angsty buletin on myspace saying anyone that wears a Sludge t-shirt to a gig will be thrown out.....bit harsh but he was pissed cause apparently the article took joy in the fact that he was apparently dead (what happened anyway? as far as im aware Phil is an awesome guy!)

 

i replied to the bulletin asking if he was talking about Rachelle, and he was kind enough to reply back to me about the situation...

i think my message said something like "i think its really cool that you run your own myspace, its a rare thing these days"

 

and he replied with something along the linse of "hey izzy, i appreciate the time you took to write, despite what smoe people think im just a normal guy tryna have fun and make people happy"

 

its the usual "thanks for coming to the gig" sorta thing, but i just think its cool that LA Guns are so accessible, i mean Phil didnt mind at all when i spent like 15 minutes talking to him at the meet and greet, he's seriously one of the more awesome rockstars out there in my books :tumbsup:

    • New album 'Life Will Never Be The Same' out March 3 through Mighty Music. Press release: After their previous release “The Sky is the Limit”, Norwegian band STARGAZER entered the radar of connoisseurs of the hard rocking world. The group was loudly hailed as one to watch. They received a lot of great reviews all over the western world and were, back then in late 2019, ready to take on the world for serious touring. But serious touring saw an abrupt end due to Covid-19 for almost every band in 2020-21, with Stargazer being no exception. The nordic five-piece didn’t loose their spirit and, diligently, took the downtime to start penning their next album. Produced by guitar player William Ernstsen and vocalist Tore André Helgemo, “Life Will Never Be The Same” is the result of those dark times with a silver lining ahead. Engineered by William at Jedimasterstudios, Trondheim, and mixed and mastered in Medley Studios, Copenhagen, by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, etc), “Life Will Never Be The Same” is exactly the kind of album that you’d expect from a matured Stargazer and then some. The five-piece powerhouse hammers on with Scandinavian vibes that consists of virtuosity and a vintage sound with a modern twist. Firing on all cylinders in combination with the sense of good melodies, great riffs, solos and songwriting handcraft. With one of rock’s best voices and one of the best blues-based hard rock guitar players around today. All this on top of a rock steady hard groove with killer rock songs such as “Live My Dream”, or down to the most tender and heartfelt tunes, as for example the single “Live Today”, with emotions worn on their sleeves. “Live Will Never Be The Same” is the sound of Norwegian classic hard rock flagship, and Stargazer sets sail again with its this third release in their discography. One to change their life – and yours – for good. Tracklisting: 1. Can You Conceive It 2. Live My Dream 3. Rock The Sky 4. Live Today 5. Don’t Kill 6. Will I Come To Heaven 7. Heartbroken 8. Turn Off The Light 9. Beyond The Moon 10. Take Me Home 11. Push Me    
    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
