Art Of Anarchy, the mega group featuring legendary vocalist Scott Weiland, along with lead guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses), bassist John Moyer (Disturbed) and introducing twin brothers Jon (guitar) and Vince Votta (drums), have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media imprint, Another Century. Their debut self-titled album will be in stores and online June 8th.
The band states, “We’re all excited our album will be released worldwide on Century Media/Another Century Records and the public will finally hear what this band stands for.”
A pair of live radio broadcasts Guns N’ Roses performed in 1988 and 1992 will be released on CD next month. BraveWords reports that the two-disc set, imaginatively titled Live Radio Broadcasts, includes two famous GNR shows that were recorded for broadcast and have since become bootleg favorites.
The first is from Feb. 2, 1988, at New York’s Ritz; the other comes from a show at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago on April 9, 1992.
The 1988 show was recorded during the Appetite for Destruction tour, just as the Guns N’ Roses’ debut album was starting to break. In addition to many Appetite cuts, the CD includes the group’s cover of Aerosmith‘s “Mama Kin.”
The other performance was recorded during the Use Your Illusion tour, after the band was well-established and had debuted at Nos. 1 and 2 the previous year with the two Illusion sets. The disc is rounded out by a pair of bonus songs. You can see the track listing for the album, which comes out on April 27, below.
It should be noted that the band itself hasn’t confirmed any involvement with this release, which makes its legality somewhat questionable.

Bumblefoot discusses upcoming touring plans and appearances, his involvement with Generation Kill featuring Rob Dukes and DMC, The Art of Anarchy, Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp and he responds as we jokingly asked him if he’s going to be the new drummer of Megadeth.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators were playing shows in Argentina this weekend and had a few special guests join them onstage. Former Guns N’ Roses members Duff McKagan and Gilby Clarke performed with Slash during his March 7 show. According to Blabbermouth, McKagan played two songs with Slash: “It’s So Easy” and “Paradise City,” and Clarke joined the duo for the latter. Watch the “Paradise City” performance above, which begins with a “Guns N’ Roses” chant from the audience. Check out a video of “It’s So Easy” below.
The two former GN’R members didn’t have far to travel to join Slash onstage as McKagan’s Loaded and Gilby Clarke + Coverheads served as the openers for Slash’s March 7 date. The day before the mini-reunion, McKagan also joined Slash to perform both of those songs. You can see video from the March 6 performance below.
Slash and McKagan were part of the original Guns N’ Roses lineup, while Clarke was added to the group in 1991 replacing rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin after he quit the band.
Recently the band’s first drummer, Steven Adler, has been talking a lot about his desire to get the original lineup of Guns N’ Roses to record new music and a tour. Meanwhile, current member DJ Ashba says the most recent lineup is focusing on a new album and planning a huge tour.
Primus, Tom Waits, Guns N Roses, Praxis – Brain’s worked with all of them (he was a member of GNR for 6 years). He talks about the aforementioned as well as what he’s been up to recently – Composing for film. He also tells some great Buckethead stories. Great hang.
