FOO FIGHTER TURNED DOWN GUN’S AND ROSES

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins recently revealed that he once turned down an offer from Guns N' Roses after Queen's Roger Taylor advised him to stick with Dave Grohl. The story was shared with Classic Rock. He said that whilst in London in 1999 he received a call from his mother who explained that Guns and Roses management were looking for him. "Axl was trying to get together a new version of Guns N' Roses, and I think he was checking around for people. They wanted to know if I would come in and try out or whatever. It was kind of otherworldly." Hawkins reached out to his friend Roget Taylor of Queen for advice who responded “I see you and Dave onstage and there's something you can't buy there. There's something between you guys that might not be there with Axl Rose.”

BRING ME THE HORIZON

Bring Me The Horizon have released a stream of their new song "Ludens". The track comes from the brand new "Death Stranding: Timefall (Original Music From The World Of Death Stranding)" soundtrack. Frontman Oli Sykes said "'Death Stranding' is a game I've been waiting for long before collaborating with them was on the table. Kojima-san is one of the few people I would call a hero to me, so making a track for his first game since Konami was equal parts daunting, stressful and exciting... the whole thing felt surreal, and not right... To be honest, I didn't see where a Bring Me The Horizon song was going to fit into an art house AAA game, but I was stupid to try and pigeonhole Kojima's style!"”
