    McKellen on Possible X-Men Trilogy
    Monday, December 24, 2001 10:46 CST

    Ian McKellen spoke a bit about the highly-anticipated follow-up to "X-Men." He tells the Chicago Sun-Times that shooting on the sequel starts soon where he reprises his role of Magneto.

    "I recently called 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer and I told him that Magneto should have a fabulous body this time because he's been doing exercises since we last saw him. Bryan thinks I'm an idiot."

    There's even talk of an "X-Men" trilogy, McKellen says, "We'll see. I'm contracted to do two. Some actors are contracted to do three."
    ".....and Harry Potter and all of his wizard-friends went to Hell for practicing Witchcraft. The End." -Ned Flander's version of reading "Harry Potter" to Rod and Todd.

    Peter Jackson Talks The Two Towers
    Monday, December 24, 2001 9:41 CST

    The second installment in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Two Towers," will be released next Christmas. But given the horrific events of Sept. 11, director Peter Jackson admits he has a few qualms about that title. He tells the Chicago Sun-Times, "It's true that I've thought about what that title means now. I just pray that by the time the second movie comes out, it won't cause any controversy. It's a 50-year-old book. We can't change the title. Tolkien fans would crucify us."

    Jackson says the pivotal action scene from the sequel will be the Battle of Helms Deep. "It's a battle that will kick your a--," Jackson promises. "It's the Uraki vs. the elves and the men at Helms Deep, which is an old fort. Let me just say it's very bloody."

    Also expect more of the character Gollum from the first film. "He's a computer-generated character voiced by Andy Serkis, but don't expect him to be another Jar Jar Binks," Jackson adds. "He's a bit good and a bit bad. He's really a tortured character. He has been corrupted by the ring. He has really become a shriveled shadow of himself."

    The director also talked more about Aragorn and Arwen's relationship. "We get a little deeper into the love story between Aragorn and Arwen. We see how much they really mean to each other."

    McKellen Talks The Two Towers
    Monday, December 24, 2001 9:49 CST

    Ian McKellen has been speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times about the wizard Gandalf's role in "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers". His words include spoilers about the character, so don't proceed if you would rather not know a thing about the sequel...

    "Of course, Gandalf appears again. He's sent back because his job is not done. He has failed the fellowship. I shouldn't tell you this, but he comes back looking younger and more determined. He has even trimmed his beard. He's wearing white samurai clothes in the second one. He rides a white horse. He's a commander. He's not bumbling anymore," McKellen says.

    It might be an "action-comedy" starring Chris Rock, though.

    Madsen in Bond 20 & Kill Bill
    Wednesday, December 26, 2001 12:47 CST

    Michael Madsen is negotiating to star in "James Bond 20" as well as Miramax's "Kill Bill" for writer-director Quentin Tarantino, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Additionally, Madsen plans to star in several indie features, including "Blueberry," a live-action feature based on the series of French comic books of the same name to be directed by Jan Kounen ("Dobermann").

    The Bond feature, which Madsen will shoot in February, will see the actor play Falco, a rogue CIA agent. The film, written by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, also stars Pierce Brosnan, John Cleese, Judi Dench, Halle Berry and Rick Yune.

    The rumour mill has it that MR. BIG drummer Pat Torpey asked former guitarist Paul Gilbert to return to the band to play bass, replacing the sacked Billy Sheehan. This flies in the face of the original agreement hammered out between both parties that the band would call it quits at the end of their last tour, for which Sheehan was re-hired under duress. Gilbert declined the offer.

    From Jason Newsted's jaw-dropping departure from Metallica to At the Drive-In going on an "indefinite hiatus" at the peak of their popularity, 2001 certainly had its share of personnel shakeups and band breakups.

    Only time will tell if some bandmembers are as replaceable as dead batteries or whether they were, in fact, the real power source of the group. And sometimes retirement is only as long as a much-needed vacation, as the Breeders proved most recently when they regrouped for a new album and tour (see "Breeders Reunion Spawns Monthlong U.S. Club Tour").

    So while there's no telling how permanent any of these changes may be, they were made, and the rest of us, like it or not, will have to live with the results.

    Limp Bizkit Loses Wes Borland: In October, the often-costumed guitarist and rap-rock kingpins parted company in what the band's management called an amicable split (see "Limp Bizkit And Wes Borland Part Ways"). Just days later, Limp Bizkit announced their open-audition search for a replacement (see "Wanted Ill Guitar Player; Must Know Limp Bizkit Tunes"). Although a roving hunt was to commence in November, they've yet to hit the trail.

    Meanwhile, Borland is working on an album with his new band, Eat the Day, composed of members from his Bizkit side project Big Dumb Face. Eat the Day's debut is expected to surface in mid-2002 (see "Ex-Bizkit Borland Digs In With His New Band, Eat The Day").

    Metallica Bassist Newsted Bows Out: The year kicked off with some shocking news when Jason Newsted announced in January that he was leaving Metallica after 14 years with the group (see "Bassist Jason Newsted Leaves Metallica"). An article in the April edition of Playboy suggested that Newsted had always felt like an outsider, despite having a longer tenure with the band than original bassist Cliff Burton (see "Metallica Bares All In Playboy").

    After leaving, Newsted worked with musical youths the Moss Brothers (see "Ex-Metallica Bassist Newsted Plays With Young Duo") and his new band EchoBrain and produced various projects (see "Jason Newsted Gets Buys After Metallica"). Meanwhile, Metallica began work on their new record in April (see"Shorthanded Metallica Enter Recording Studio"), and three months later singer James Hetfield entered rehab. He left the facility in December (see "James Hetfield Exits Rehab, Rejoins Metallica"), and a new album is expected soon, though a void in the bass slot remains.

    Weezer's Bassist Goes AWOL: Bassist Mikey Welsh, who had replaced founding member Matt Sharp, left the company of Weezer in August rather mysteriously. After skipping out on a scheduled video shoot for "Island in the Sun," he went missing and later turned up in a psychiatric hospital (see "Weezer Bassist Checks Into Psychiatric Hospital"). The band named Scott Shriner of Los Angeles' Broken as a temporary tour replacement, and Weezer are now working on the follow-up to Weezer, a.k.a. the Green Album (see "Weezer Continue To Hammer Away At New LP").

    Rage Against the Machine Working With Cornell: Following frontman Zack de la Rocha's departure in October 2000, the remaining members of Rage Against the Machine began working with former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell in May (see "Chris Cornell To Rage With The Machine"). The group, which will not be called Rage Against the Machine, hopes its labors will come to fruition next year.

    Guns N' Roses Reload With New Lineup: Although a new GN'R lineup was cemented in early 2000 (see "GN'R: Buckethead In, Freese Out"), it took some nine months before fans could see the result. Axl Rose was the only original member to hit the stage on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas, joined by guitarists Buckethead, Robin Finck and Paul Tobias, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pittman, former Primus drummer Brian "Brain" Mantia, and former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson (see "Rose's New Guns Unveiled In Vegas").

    The group, minus Pittman, was said to be readying its long-awaited new album, Chinese Democracy, for a June release (see "Guns N' Roses To Release New Album In June"), but perhaps not surprisingly, the date has been pushed back indefinitely. A European tour was also in place, but that, too, was scrapped (see "Guns N' Roses Cancel European Tour — Again"). Next year will bring everything full circle, as the band will once again toast the new year in Las Vegas (see "Guns N' Roses Ante Up For Another New Year's Eve In Vegas").

    Powerman 5000 Lose Some Juice: While retooling their new album, which once bore the title Anyone for Doomsday?, the rhythm section of Powerman 5000 pulled the plug. Bassist Dorian Heartsong (a.k.a. Dorian 27) and drummer Alan Pahanish (Al 3) announced in November that they were splitting with singer Spider One and guitarists Adam 12 and M.33 (see "Powerman 5000's Bassist, Drummer Split"). And though Spider said the split was amicable, he confessed that "Powerman 5000 will never be the same — it will be better!" The follow-up to 1999's Tonight the Stars Revolt! is still without a release date.

    Slayer Drummer Gets Elbowed Out of Job: Slayer's Paul Bostaph, the band's drummer since 1994, was forced into retirement by a chronic elbow injury in late December, leaving the slot behind the kit open for original drummer Dave Lombardo to return. Lombardo's stint is temporary, however — he's on board only for the next leg of Slayer's God Hates Us All tour, which begins in January. A permanent replacement has yet to be named (see "Original Slayer Drummer Dave Lombardo Back For Tour").

    Methods of Mayhem Bassist Departs: TiLo, one of the two principals behind Methods of Mayhem with former Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee relinquished his post in February to pursue other interests (see "Methods Of Mayhem Un-Rapped: TiLo Leaves Band"). Lee, meanwhile has been working on the follow-up to MoM's eponymous 1999 debut, which he hopes to have out in May (see "Tommy Lee Pulls In Incubus, Cypress Hill Members For More Mayhem").

    Kittie Guitarist Goes Astray: Guitarist Fallon Bowman was unceremoniously removed from Kittie's lineup in August without any explanation from the band's camp. A statement issued by their label announced that Kittie are now a trio while emphasizing that sisters Morgan and Mercedes Lander were always the creative force anyway (see "Kittie Guitarist Scratched From Lineup"). Guitar tech Jeff Phillips rounded out the group for live performances to support Kittie's latest album, Oracle, released in November.

    At the Drive-In Take a Back Seat: The members of El Paso, Texas, rock group At the Drive-In, together since 1994, announced their indefinite hiatus in March, so that they can pursue other projects, such as DeFacto, a dub project consisting of guitarist Omar Rodriguez and singer Cedric Bixler (see "At The Drive-In Suspend Activity, Cancel April Dates"). Their last album together was 2000's Relationship of Command.

    Static-X Score Some Dope: In January, techo-metal group Static-X replaced guitarist Koichi Fukuda, who announced his departure in November 2000, with former Dope guitarist Tripp Eisen (see "Static-X Finishing Album, Hire Dope Guitarist"). Eisen's handiwork can be heard on the band's latest album, Machine, released in May.

    New York rap-rockers Dope then recruited guitarist Virus and drummer Sketchy Shay while moving bassist Acey Slade to guitar and filling the void with original bassist Sloane Jentry. They released their second album, Life, in October.

    Bad Religion Reunite With Gurewitz: Original Bad Religion guitarist and Epitaph Records founder Brett Gurewitz re-entered the band's lineup in May to write and record the two-decade-old band's twelfth album, The Process of Belief, scheduled for a January release (see "Bad Religion Reunited With Brett Gurewitz"). Drummer Bobby Schayer was permanently sidelined by a shoulder injury in June (see "Bad Religion Drummer Forced Into Retirement"), and Suicidal Tendencies drummer Brooks Wackerman replaced him behind the kit.

    Savage Garden No Longer Growing: The harvest month of October yielded no crop from Savage Garden, as the pop duo of Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones went their separate ways after five years together (see "Savage Garden Grow Permanently Apart"). Jones is pursuing a nonmusical career, while Hayes is preparing to release his solo debut, Spin in the spring.

    Wilco's Tweedy Weeds Out Members: The only members left from Wilco's original lineup are frontman Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt after two torches were passed to successors. Drummer Ken Coomer was replaced in January by Glenn Kotche, and multi-instrumentalist Jay Bennett quit the band in July, allowing Leroy Bach to climb aboard. After being dropped from longtime label Reprise, the quartet streamed their new album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, online while searching for a new home (see "Wilco Stream New Album Online While Shopping For Label"), which they found at Nonesuch. The group's fourth album is due in April.

    Fu Manchu Drummer Hits the Road: After receiving some mainstream recognition with last year's King of the Road, Fu Manchu said goodbye to drummer Brant Bjork, who quit the stoner-rock quartet in November to pursue other endeavors. Before leaving, he had already recorded his parts for Fu's forthcoming seventh album, California Crossing, due February 5. A replacement drummer has been selected but not yet announced.

    Our Lady Peace Guitarist Departs: Canadian rockers Our Lady Peace got a little less tranquil when founding guitarist Mike Turner announced his departure in December, citing musical and creative differences. The band has been working on its fifth album, the follow-up to the conceptual Spiritual Machines, in Maui, Hawaii, with producer Bob Rock, and will continue to labor away in January. A six-string successor has not been named.

    NEWS - Kid Rock, Twisted Brown Trucker Preparing For 2002 Tour
    12/26/2001



    (12/26/01, 7 a.m. ET) - Home from last week's concert for U.S. troops in Germany, Kid Rock is formulating plans for a tour that's expected to start in February to promote his new album, Cocky.

    Uncle Kracker, Rock's best friend and the DJ in his Twisted Brown Trucker Band, says tour preparations are moving along but that they are not in a great hurry yet: "We're just all getting the record together now. [We] haven't assembled the full show--we're learning the record part for part, you know, the Cocky album. That's just gonna be tough--trying to decide what to play off each record. You know, you obviously want to play the singles or the hits, and then what do you play off the new record? So it'll take a minute for that, I'm sure."

    Between rehearsals, Kracker is also working on material for his next solo album, the follow-up to 2000's double-platinum Double Wide.

    Wes Craven Talks Alice Adaptation
    Wednesday, December 26, 2001 12:03 CST

    Wes Craven has been speaking to Sci Fi Wire about his upcoming computer-animated film version of the video game "American McGee's Alice" for Dimension Films.

    "It's very close to the game," Craven said. "Everything that we can take from the game, we will steal, and then we'll bring even more to it. I'm sure this will be a big CGI picture, and we'll try to duplicate as much of the sort of wonder part of the Wonderland as we can."

    Craven plans to maintain a tone of violence, even if it costs him the rating that Dimension hopes for.

    "It's a little darker, got a lot more edge, so it's kind of like Wonderland seen through the eyes of post-21st-century America," Craven said. "[Dimension executive] Bob Weinstein was hoping for a PG-13. We'll see. Probably that's what we're shooting for."

    Lord of the Rings Takes Christmas Box Office
    Wednesday, December 26, 2001 2:51 CST

    New Line Cinema's "The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" held on to the top spot for the Christmas Day box-office tally. The Peter Jackson-directed film took in an estimated $11.5 million for the day, bringing its total take to more than $95 million for the studio since its Dec. 19 release.

    Columbia Pictures' "Ali" debuted in second place with $10.2 million in box office receipts, claiming the title as the biggest Christmas Day opening ever. "Ali's" opening surpasses that of "Patch Adams," which had held the top spot with its Christmas Day (Friday) 1998 opening of $8.1 million.

    "Ocean's 11," from New Line's sister studio Warner Bros., was third with $4.5M. Paramount Pictures' "Vanilla Sky" came in at #4 with an estimated $3 million. Miramax's "Kate & Leopold" rounded out the top five with about $2.5 million its first day.

    NEWS - Gregg Allman Kicks Off Solo Tour
    12/27/2001



    (12/27/01, 7 a.m. ET) -- The Allman Brothers Band may be busy recording a new studio album, its first since 1994's Where It All Begins--but singer-organist Gregg Allman is still invested in making his own music, too. So tonight (December 27) at the Johnny Mercer Theatre in Savannah, Georgia, he's kicking off a seven-city tour with Gregg Allman & Friends, his own band that features longtime cohorts such as bassist Tommy Miller, guitarist Mark McGhee, and drummer Billy Stewart, as well as a full horn section.

    Allman tells LAUNCH, "Mostly we play the songs off my solo record, and the way I record is different than the Allman Brothers in that I take writings from other people--whereas in the Allman Brothers, if we don't write it, we ain't gonna play it. I just want to put out a real good record when I'm doing it on my own."

    Allman says he hopes to record a new Gregg Allman Band album in the near future, but for now he's focused on the Allman Brothers Band effort. The Brothers recently wrapped initial sessions for the album at a studio in New York City which resulted in six songs.

    Even though Rob Zombie's big-screen horror flick is hung up awaiting a distribution deal, the shock rocker is still going Hollywood.

    Zombie, who wrote and directed the still-to-be released horror flick "House of 1,000 Corpses," is contributing his track "Never Gonna Stop (The Red, Red Kroovy)," for the soundtrack to the upcoming remake of "Rollerball." The song is the second single from Zombie's recently released The Sinister Urge album, and Zombie is now folding footage from the film into his "Clockwork Orange"-themed video for the song.

    "There are scenes in the video that are completely scenes from 'A Clockwork Orange.' The sets, we tried to make exact. And then there are other scenes that are inspired by the film, in the sense that it looks like it could have been in the movie, but it wasn't actually in the movie. It kind of blurs the line, because it looks futuristic, and then you've got 'Rollerball' footage, which is obviously futuristic. It actually works better than I thought it would. I thought it might really be like, 'Oh god, there's movie footage.' But it ties in pretty well.

    "If it was scenes from some new Julia Roberts/Hugh Grant movie that I was trying to cut into the video, it would be a nightmare, but since it's a science fiction/action movie, it fits together."

    Zombie shot the video immediately after helming the clip for Ozzy Osbourne's "Dreamer" during a break from the duo's Merry Mayhem Tour (see "Zombie Directing Videos For Himself, Ozzy During Break From Tour").

    "In hindsight, that was probably the stupidest idea I ever had," Zombie said of the ambitious schedule. "I thought that it would somehow make more sense to do two videos back-to-back. Literally, I had my set on one soundstage, and had Ozzy's set on the one next to it ... it was a nightmare for everybody. If you watch the videos, you can't tell. Nothing suffered in the process except people's sanity."

    Zombie's deal with the makers of "Rollerball" will also see the song used in television ads for the movie as well as in the film itself.

    The rocker also plans to revisit his White Zombie days, re-recording one of that band's classic tracks for the soundtrack to the upcoming "Mummy" sequel, "The Scorpion King."

    While "Rollerball" and "The Scorpion King" are marching toward theaters, Zombie's own "House of 1,000 Corpses" is still awaiting a distributor. Zombie plans to finish editing the film in January after wrapping the Merry Mayhem Tour, and hopes to decide on a U.S. distributor shortly thereafter.

    "After this amount of time, I want to get the best person on the case," Zombie said. "It's all good. It will probably be out by the end of the summer. I'm looking for it to hit big around Halloween."

    Zombie also plans to write and record roughly four new songs for the soundtrack to "House of 1,000 Corpses," which would also feature previously released songs from other artists.

    "It will probably be a record that's one-half songs, one-half weird rock instrumental stuff," Zombie said. "There's one scene where I used a Slim Whitman song. I didn't use it to be funny in any way. It's just this really nice country song, but it's a really brutal scene, and it just worked."

    Once Zombie's pet horror project makes it to theaters, it will mark the end of a journey that he began in earnest in April 2000.

    "It seems like a longer process than it's been because at this time last year Universal was still fully behind the movie and was preparing to put it out," Zombie explained. "It's been less than a year of this insanity, but I guess since I've talked about it so much, it feels like more ... I always figure that you can't put this much work into something and not have it work. An extra year of work is not a big deal in the life of a movie."
