Eliminated Rock of Love 2 Contestant, Catherine
Kelly McNamara, Lead Vocalist of The Carrie Nations (from Beyond the Valley of the Dolls)
My pal Swami recently turned me on to the virtual Death Metal band Dethklok, and I have been enjoying their cartoon adventures on the Adult Swim Channel’s very clever show, Metalocalypse for the past couple of days now. What I want to know is this: does anyone else out there notice a resemblance between Dethklok vocalist Nathan Explosion and Type O Negative’s Pete Steele? Anybody?
Nathan Explosion Peter Steele
Because the similarities are obvious to me.
Has anyone out there noticed that Lorenzo Borghese, star of the 9th season of the semi-retarded reality freak show The Bachelor bears an amazing resemblance to the professionally morose Industrial music genius Trent Reznor? I sure did.
Of course, this line of thinking gets me to hypothesizing about how fun and utterly twisted it would be if ABC recruited Trent to be the next Bachelor contestant. Can you just imagine Trent looking for his potential life mate among 25 assorted Type O Negative fans and would-be-Myspace-Porn-Stars diluted with a few blonde-and-brainless-cheerleader types? How much would that rule?
Again, it reminds me of this silly article I wrote for the print version of Ink19 about ten years ago (back when I was a confused, horny fan who hadn’t yet figured out what an utter fraud Trent is) called Dream Date With Trent Reznor. Good times. I wish that piece was archived somewhere because it would be good to haul it out for a few belly laughs. But hopping back on my original train of thought, maybe if Trent could find true love and get laid on a regular basis, he could write some songs that didn’t go on and on about how depressed he is and how much it sucks to be a millionaire rock star who’s probably turned more sex than I’ve had. Yawn City.
Has anyone else besides me noticed how much Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers looks like comedian/actor Will Farrell? That’s Chad above, on the cover of the June Issue of Modern Drummer and here’s Will below. Check it out:
Anyhoo, be sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of Modern Drummer so you can read my amazing update with Sammy Seigler from the band Nightmare of You.
Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters is looking all “stoner rock” on the cover of the May 2006 issue of Modern Drummer magazine. Inside its fascinating, drum-riddled pages (and also on the web), you’ll find my update on drummer Tennessee Thomas of The Like. Her dad Pete Thomas plays drums for Elvis Costello!
