During a longer conversation about song and lyric writing, Slash told a few stories about how songs like ‘Paradise City’ and ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ came to be. The guitarist tells Metro Lyrics that the well-known Guns N’ Roses hits were pretty spontaneous.

“Evil,” “Criminals,” “Vile,” “Coyotes” … these are just four of the words rocker Ted Nugent chose for his speech at the NRA Convention in St. Louis on Saturday.

Kiss is looking for a few good men. Or just one good man. Actually it could be a woman too. The rockers — who’ve long been supporters of the men and women in the U.S. military — are looking to hire a veteran to join their road crew when they hit the road with Motley Crue in July.
The Allman Brothers Band closed a 10-night residency at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Sunday night, and were forced to play parts of two of those shows without frontman and founder Gregg Allman. Allman walked off stage in pain on Saturday night and was taken to a local hospital.
