So what does Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden think about the Black Sabbath and Slayer drummer firings?

Via Classic Rock Magazine:

When you look at something and say, ‘Could you explain this to me, why we’re not getting what we should according to these numbers?’ and somebody says, ‘F–king shut your face or you’re fired’ – it tells you there’s an alarm bell going off.

You have to ask yourself this: How did Dave Lombardo get the information that led to this problem? Who gave him the financials, if he wasn’t on top of it with an accountant already?

Alfred Publishing Releases On The Beaten Path: Metal

Looks like Alfred Publishing is really trying to make a series out of their On The Beaten Path books. Following up their award winning “On The Beaten Path: The Drummer’s Guide to Musical Styles and the Legends Who Defined Them,” and the associated book on Prog Rock, Alfred’s getting into the metal game with their latest release. I think their next release in this series should be jazz. I think there are tons of guys who would eat that up. Bring on the swing!

Lots of good metal drummers in this book, including the coffee-drinking Charlie Benante. Maybe he and this book can curl up next to a warm toasty fire on a winter’s night with his coffee mug. HARDCORE!!!
