It's really late, I'm somewhere between drunk and hungover and the 6th annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards are in the books. I'll have a proper recap of my experience on this Sunday's Livecast, but I can tell you two big highlights: getting smoked up by Max Cavalera's sons and watching Guns N Roses from the side of the stage. I don't know how I got that lucky either. Oh, and Slayer premiered a new song – a pretty big deal if you ask me.
