Kim Monroe’s Music Minute June 16th

According to Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, the band will probably never make a purely rock focused record again.  Campbell said that a lot of fans would probably love for them to go back to the sound of “On Through The Night” or “High N’Dry” which was modeled after AC/DC, but it’s not going to happen.  He said that there is too much diversity within the band, too many different genres sampled.

It’s true…Gene Simmons is actually trying to trademark the “devil horns.”  According to the trademark application, Simmons claims that the often seen hand gesture was first used by him in 1974 in coordination with KISS “Hotter Than Hell” tour. Some argue that it was Dio who first used the hand gesture, but Gene’s “devil horns” show the pointer, pinky and thumb all extended, while Dio’s has the thumb over the middle and ring fingers.  This could get interesting.

Black Sabbath said their last goodbye to fans in February in their hometown of Birmingham, England, but this may not be the last time we see the band.  According to guitarist Tony Iommi, after that last show, the band did three days of filming for an upcoming DVD.  Iommi goes further to say that Black Sabbath is no longer touring, but recording music or a one off here and there is not out of the question.
