Kim Monroe’s Music Minute June 17th and 18th

You knew it was only a matter of time before folks starting chiming in on Gene Simmons attempt to trademark the “devil horns.”  First up, Wendy Dio, widow of Ronnie James who calls the move laughable, saying he has made a complete fool of himself and that it’s disgusting!  Then, there is Nikki Sixx who jokingly posted on Twitter that he is thinking of trademarking the middle finger.

As Journey were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame last year, fans were hopeful of a reunion with former singer Steve Perry.  So, guitarist Neal Schon took it upon himself to lay to rest and hope of that reunion happening.  Schon did say he was open to working with Perry again, but that the current formation of Journey with singer Arnel Pineda is doing just fine.

Even more details have become available on the new album from Queens of the Stone Age.  First off, the number “25” that was part of the tease is for August 25th, the date that the new album titled “Villians” will be released.  The band have also released a new single “The Way You Used To.”  The album was produced by Mark Ronson, widely known for his work with artists like Bruno Mars, Adele and Lady Gaga, plus his DJ career.
