Holy shit! In stark contrast to last week, the labels seem to be operating under the assumption that you have plenty of capital left over from your Spring Break partying, because they're seriously not fucking around with this week's releases.

Oy with this Dream Theater drama. I thought we were all moving past this, but this recent bit of news is too juicy not to talk about. New information has surfaced in the Courthouse News Service that shows Mike Portnoy filed a suit against his former bandmates, claiming they "wrongfully excluded" him from the group and are [...]
We all love Ozzy Osbourne, especially when he gives his sage advice in England's Sunday Times in his very own health column. Recently, he responded to a fan looking to sneak off to a Rub N' Tug (thanks Entourage) without his girlfriend finding out:
