“Sometimes I sit in the studio and get an idea, work on it and when I listen to it back, it surpasses my expectations. That’s what just happened here at the new Harmony Hut and I’m blown away.

“What we’ve got here is…failure to communicate.” The chart topping Guns N’ Roses hit single, ‘Civil War’ starts with the recording sample of Strother Martin’s speech and goes about questioning every intention and aspect of a war. As the 150th anniversary of Civil war is marked and remembered in America, the question still remains unanswered, ‘When will America recall its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan?’
Some people may support war, just to defend their gullible mindset, which was projected to them by the likes of Bush government. The supporters of war are either oppurtunitists or slaves to their fears. It is time that the unnecessary war carried by the American military comes to an end.
If you find rockstars to be of double standards, talking about the world issues and living a luxurious life, then you got to open your mind to hear and understand the artistic expression of these musical geniuses. World peace may look like an unfulfilled wish for humanity but in the recent times we have seen the revolution by people who brought the real ‘Change’ as opposed to the presidential promises of ‘Change’.
As the song goes-
“My hands are tied
For all I’ve seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
‘Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars”
With all the human rights flouted, it is time that America brings a closure to its outsourced Civil War.

PA asserts Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine did NOT collapse in Russia, but not without a Charlie Sheen joke
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine’s Personal Assistant, Rikki, churned out a passionate post to assert that the singer did NOT collapse in Russia. In the March 20 piece posted on Megadeth.com, presses that “DAVE MUSTAINE NEVER COLLAPSED IN RUSSIA. Not ON stage, not back stage, not ever. He was NOT rushed to the hospital,” among busting other metal myths but not without a Charlie Sheen joke.
“Dave addressed his health issues himself, and I have no idea where anybody got the idea that there was a collapse because simply put, it is NOT TRUE. Anybody who was at that show can verify that, and as his personal assistant, as his right hand out here on the road, I want to testify to anybody who doubts it, this never happened. It’s really pathetic that people have to play the telephone game and spread bulls*&t rumors to trump up some fantasy that they have played out in their heads,” the PA writes in the blog post titled, ‘DAVE MUSTAINE IN GOOD HEALTH; RUMOR OF HOSPITALIZATION UNTRUE’.
“Please pass the word along to anyone who may say other wise, and to fellow Megadeth fans, and to people who claim to know otherwise,” she goes on to urge, before reiterating the “candid and honest” rockstar’s revelations that the trouble was due to kidney stones, “quite a normal thing, and extremely painful.”
Bashing the rumor mills, the post says, “Something as strongly worded as “collapse” can come across as way more dramatic and blown out of proportion than you may realize.”
In the ensuing argument, Rikki goes on to bust some popular myths about musicians accompanied with an unexpected and hilarious swipe at the scandalous ‘Two and Half Men’ star, Charlie Sheen.
“You heard it here first: Britney Spears does NOT have 2 heads (though Charlie Sheen, I’m not so sure), Ozzy does not eat bats for breakfast on a daily basis, and Dave Mustaine did NOT collapse in Russia.”
