Tim Lambesis solicits a hitman to execute his wife

As I lay Dying singer and frontman Tim Lambesis has been arrested for soliciting a hitman to murder his estranged wife who is currently filing for divorce from the vocalist of the Christian heavy metal band.

WTF is going on?

I don’t know if it’s just me but the world truly seems to be turning to shit of late. I’ve lost count of how many public icons have died or been arrested on crazy charges like Murder or Child Abuse in the last few years. The number only seems to be multiplying on a daily basis. We had Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe arrested for Manslaughter a few months ago. Thankfully Acquitted. Lostprophets singer arrested for conspiracy to rape a baby. Jeff Hanneman died only a few days ago. Even the iconic entertainer Rolf Harris has been arrested for child abuse allegations. WTF is going on?

The investigation into the As I lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis began after Lambesis contacted an undercover detective posing as a hitman on the 2nd of May to execute his wife.

According to the report from San Diego Sheriff’s Department, FOX 5 news claim the 32 year old, Tim Lambesis, was arrested and taken into custody without incident on Tuesday (The 7th of May) around 2 p.m. at an Oceanside business in San Diego.

Lambesis was booked into the Vista Detention Facility. He is expected be arraigned sometime later this week.

Although Jan Caldwell, the spokesperson for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said she was unable to provide details of the case at hand, she did offer the following:

“The information came to us late last week, we acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy.”

Lambesis’ wife, Meggan, filed for divorce on the 20th of September, last year (2012).

As I Lay Dying interview with Tim Lambesis

During an interview with Loudwire in a January of 2013 Lambesis was asked if his humanitarianism provides him with a source of lyrical inspiration. “Yes, it’s definitely a part of my life for me,” he said. “My kids are adopted and I’ve visited their country; they’re from Ethiopia, and that was eye-opening to what the world is really like, at least a third of the world. I think that just influences my entire worldview. Even if I’m not necessarily writing a song about humanitarian work, I’m writing a song about what truly makes us happy in life, and those types of things that have been influenced by my experiences.”

Bill-Clinton-2013

Old Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin in the good old days.

Former president Bill Clinton has had his request for a Led Zeppelin reunion turned down by the band. it’s been revealed that Led Zeppelin turned down according to news from The Pulse Of Radio. Clinton’s request for the band to reunite was in aid of last year’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The concert raised over $50 million for victims of the storm. Led Zeppelin’s turning down the offer was reported on a recent episode of CBS’ “60 Minutes“, The show reported on the Robin Hood Foundation which organised the all-star fundraising event.

Harvey Weinstein had this great idea that we could enlist Bill Clinton who could convince Led Zeppelin to reunite to perform at the 12-12-12 concert,” Stated David Saltzman, the Robin Hood Foundation’s executive director claiming that Bill Clinton had personally asked the band in Washington, D.C. while they were being presented with the Kennedy Center honor. “Bill Clinton himself asked Led Zeppelin to reunite and they wouldn’t do it.”

If someone like Bill Clinton can’t convince you to reunite for a charity event, I doubt anyone could.

During a press conference to help the promotion of Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day” live collection in October, Jimmy Page tried to dispel rumors of a possible Led Zeppelin reunion anytime in the imminent and foreseeable future. Stating “Well, look; at this time four years ago, we’d have been rehearsing to get to the O2,” he said. “In December it’ll be five years since the O2. So, that’s a number of years that pass in between, so that seems unlikely, if there wasn’t a whisper, or a hint that we would get together to do something or other. I’d say even two years ago, or whatever. Seems pretty unlikely, that’s what I think.”

What do you think about Bill Clinton asking Led Zeppelin for a reunion? Do you think it’s a good idea, were they wrong to turn it down. Do you think it would have made any difference who asked them?

Guns and Roses

5 songs that offended the world

Every now and then, we get to hear one song that has lyrics unacceptable to some group or some segment of the society. With half the world cribbing over not having enough freedom of expression, and the other half only being silent, musicians took to themselves to create songs with lyrics that could bring about change. Most of the times, the angst and the free flow of thoughts of the musicians ended up making controversial lyrics. Here are top 5 songs that really shook the world with their lyrics:

God Save The Queen

No, we are not talking of the British national anthem. Even though this song by The Sex Pistols shares its name with the anthem, it is nothing like the latter. It only talks about the Queen being fascist, and how the country doesn’t really have a future. Of course, it hurt the sentiments of a lot of people, considering how much they love their queen. Even though the BBC banned it, it did manage to become a Rock classic.

Money for Nothing

This song by the British band Dire Straits comes from their 1985 album called Brothers in Arms. Mark Knopfler and Sting share the songwriting credits. Even though Knopfler’s idea was to use as realistic lyrics as possible, some people took them to be sexist and homophobic, also a little racist. The lyrics actually originated in an appliance store where a worker was commenting on some music videos playing on the TV, and Knopfler decided to borrow a pen and paper, and started noting them down.

Suicide Solution

When Bon Scott, former AC/DC member passed away because of alcohol abuse, Ozzy Osbourne decided to write a song as a tribute to him, in which he referred to alcohol as ‘suicide solution’. Even though Ozzy is anyway famous for his strong lyrics, things got a little out of the hand with ‘Suicide Solution’, as a teenager shot himself dead while listening to the song. The court however, did not find Osbourne guilty when the parents charged him.

Used To Love Her

This song by Guns ‘n Roses wasn’t really taken well by feminist organizations around the world, because the lyrics clearly stated that a man used to love his wife once, but now he wanted to kill her. Even though the band members said that the song was written as a joke, and there were rumors that the ‘wife’ in the song actually referred to Axl’s dog, which had to be killed later and buried in the backyard, women around the world were pretty offended.

‘Kim’ by Eminem

This is again a song written for a wife, except that this time, it was actually meant for Eminem’s wife Kim, with really mean lyrics, stating how he murdered her, her husband and her stepson. During Eminem’s performance in Detroit, Kim saw the audience’s reaction and tried to commit suicide because of that. Later, she filed a case against the musician for defamation, and for mentioning her violent death in the lyrics of the song.

Westboro Baptist Facktards

God Hates Metal

God Hates Metal according to Westboro Baptist Church

Westboro Baptist Church are at it again with the horrific announcement that the bastards plan to picket the funeral of late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Claiming that they will sing their “parody” of Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Crazy Train” “at full voice” during the Slayer guitarist’s funeral.

Jeff Hanneman died at approximately 11:00am on Thursday the 2nd of May near his Southern California home. He was just 49. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. Due to a terminal illness called necrotising fasciitis which he is thought to have contracted from a spider bite, 2 years earlier.

Necrotising fasciitis is more commonly known as a flesh eating disease, which is caused by a bacterial infection of the deeper layers of skin and subcutaneous tissues.

“Necrotizing fasciitis is quickly progressing, having greater risk of developing in the immunocompromised due to conditions like diabetes, cancer, etc. It is a severe disease of sudden onset and is usually treated immediately with high doses of intravenous antibiotics.” – Wikipedia

Jeff Hanneman of Slayer dies 2nd of May 2013

Jeff Hanneman dead at the age of 49

Slayer fans have become outraged by the news, with social media sites like Facebook daring the church to even try to protest at the event, that they might meet their quick demise. The onslaught of Hate for the church has been universal by the metal community.

Westboro Baptist Church — is fringe group of fundamentalist Christians who continues to make headlines around the world for their extreme anti-gay views and outrageous protests at the funerals of U.S. soldiers, regardless of the soldiers actual sexuality. The so called “Church” first used lyrics from the Ozzy song “Crazy Train” at events surrounding a Supreme Court hearing in 2011. Two daughters of the church’s founder used the paraphrased lyrics from the song at the post-Supreme Court hearing press conference in Washington D.C.

Ozzy shows his disgust for the Westboro Bastard Church

Ozzy commented “I am sickened and disgusted by the use of ‘Crazy Train’ to promote messages of hate and evil by a ‘church,'” in response to the news of his song being used by Westboro Baptist Church.

In a June 2010 during an interview on “Rockline”, Ozzy Osbourne slated the Westboro Baptist Church’s protest of Ronnie James Dio’s funeral. “I thought it was in such bad taste that those people had those banners about Ronnie James Dio. That’s disgusting. They say that we’re the anti-christ. Well, what makes them any better?”

Crazy Train Parody on YouTube

The Westboro Baptist Church has even had the audacity to publicise their awful “parody” of “Crazy Train” on YouTube. I have included it for reference, but I really don’t enjoy sharing anything these worthless excuses for human beings have created.

Westboro Baptist Church’s “Crazy Train” “parody” lyrics:

Amazing, that’s how God rolls.
Millions of people, drowning in woe.
Crazy, it’s much too late.
To speak about love, when you brought on is hate.
Crying about your feelings, or your sin, no shame.

You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

Let’s go!

You listen to preachers, your leaders are fools.
You’re raping false prophets, who make their own rules.
The base is ascending, to rule and control.
The media sells it, and you pay the toll.

The station goes deceiving, their torment you in flames.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

We’ve told you your destruction is imminent.
You should have listen to our words.

Isn’t God’s fury?, That’s forced onto them,
The ruling rebellion, God is made to numb.
Crazy, the pride as you well.
Your birth will be brutal, he will say what is fair!

God is not been sleeping, he’s gonna bring the pain.
It’s time for your final ride on this crazy train.
Your final stop is hell on this crazy train.

Other disgusting stuff the Westboro Baptist Church has been up to

The Wall Street Journal describes the Westboro Baptist Church as a “tiny Kansas church who preaches that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.”

‘You’re Going to Hell,’ ‘Thank God for Dead Soldiers,’ and ‘God Hates You’ are some of Westboro’s favourite slogans to use at their gatherings.
