Competition Between Big 4 of Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer Has Evolved, Says Lars Ulrich

A friendly rivalry, trying to be better than the next guy — members of Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer all have a slightly different way to describe their relationship with one another back in the day.

They’re on good terms lately, proven by the fact they’ve shared the same concert stage this year in California and New York, collectively billed as the Big 4. And while the metal bands are still competitive, it’s more self-contained now that they’re “out of the sandbox” and all grown up, according to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.

Kurt Cobain Model Fender Jaguar Guitar Arrives in Stores This Month [PHOTO]

Certain guitarists are known for playing certain makes and models. Jimi Hendrix was quite loyal to the Fender Stratocaster. Former KISS member Ace Frehley has made a good living with the Gibson Les Paul. And AC/DC‘s Angus Young has a thing for the Gibson SG.

For Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain, the electric guitar he’s probably most identified with is the Fender Jaguar. By mid-to-late September, musicians everywhere can channel the late grunge rocker when Fender issues its signature Cobain model Jaguar, which has been built to the unique characteristics of the 1965 edition owned by Cobain.

How Moody Was Kurt Cobain When Nirvana Recorded ‘Nevermind?’

As the release date gets closer for the 20th-anniversary editions of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind,’ some of the album’s key figures have been sharing their memories about the sessions and the band’s frontman, Kurt Cobain.

Producer Butch Vig admits not knowing how to deal with Cobain’s mood swings when the band was recording demos of ‘Lithium’ and other eventual ‘Nevermind’ tracks at Vig’s Wisconsin studio in spring 1990.

“Kurt was charming and witty,” Vig recalls. “He would be totally engaged, then all of a sudden a light switch would go off and he’d go sit in the corner and completely disappear into himself.”

Evanescence Singer Amy Lee Shows Off Surprising New Musical Gifts on Upcoming Album

From the outside, it would appear as though the last few years have been relatively quiet for Evanescence. But a lot has happened in the life of leader and big-voiced singer Amy Lee during that time.

Starting around 2007, she pursued some personal growth — or as she puts it, made a conscious effort to “find myself as an adult.” And in the process, Lee also expanded her musical horizons by learning the harp, which she plays on Evanescence’s new self-titled third album, which arrives Oct. 11.

He already has two prominent TV co-hosting gigs under his belt. And when it comes to tattoos, well, let’s just say that he has four times that amount on his fingers alone.

That unique combination of credentials will serve Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro very well in his new job: as the host — and a judge — of the new Spike TV tattoo competition series ‘InkMaster.’

Ex-Guns ‘N’ Roses Bassist Duff McKagan Launches Wealth Management Firm

As the bassist for Guns N’ Roses, Duff McKagan was paid quite handsomely. But at the time, he didn’t really have a firm grasp on the ins and outs of his earnings.

He does now. And once Meridian Rock Capital Management launches in October, McKagan and his fellow co-founders will do their best to see that other musicians stay in tune with their money and don’t ever end up singing the financial blues.
