Fozzy’s Autumnal Sins

 

Marvellous purveyors of metallic rock excellence, Fozzy.

In other news, unrelated to delightful dogs and fine cities, excellent US rock band Fozzy are touring the UK with Soil this Autumn…and they’re not really playing near me.  This is clearly a heavy-handed attempt on the behalf of excellent touring rock bands to keep me at home for at least part of November.  For shame, sir!

I shall have to content myself with listening to their new record, “Sin and Bones”, which Century Media releases on August 13th.  If you’re thinking that you recognize Fozzy‘s lead singer, that’s probably because you’ve been a fan of WWE and all that wrassling carry-on – yes, that’s Chris Jericho rocking the mic and a fine job he does of it too.

Last Bastich Standing

The rumour mill.  Don’t you just love it?

Intergalactic bad-ass biker mercenary or failed KISS member – Lobo!

Horror site Bloody Disgusting reports (via nerd hub Bleeding Cool) that everybody’s favourite former WWE wrassler Dwayne Johnson is getting in on that comics-movie cross-over action and starring as DC bad boy and intergalactic bad ass Lobo, in a movie to be written and directed by The Rock’s “Journey 2 The Mysterious Island” director Brad Peyton.

I don’t know whether this is better news than the previously hinted-at Guy Ritchie take on the character or a harbinger that the ultra-violent emissary of ironic doom is going to have his limb-lobbing, tooled-up ways rather streamlined to meet the demands of a PG-13 rating.

Because taking the hard edges off characters always works, right?

Treat this as salt-worthy until otherwise confirmed but it does rather tie-in to some of Mr Team Bring It’s recent, enigmatic Tweets about his future projects – having said that, he does have quite the packed schedule to circumnavigate before this film gets made…
