Kim Monroe’s Music Minute March 31st

Iconic Motorhead front man, Lemmy Kilmeister passed away in 2015 and it looks like he left some new music for us.  Apparently, the singer/bassist was working with Skew Siskin’s Jim Voxx on a solo album.  Voxx said that the project actually started in 2003 and that Lemmy would come and work on the solo music in between Motorhead commitments.  He went on to say that he’s not sure when it will come out because it’s up to Motorhead’s management, but he is relatively sure it will be released this year.

As predicted, A Perfect Circle have a new album coming out…ahead of Tool.  The band recently signed with BMG for their upcoming 4th studio album.  As of now, there is no word on a title or release date, but the band’s co-founder/guitarist Billy Howerdel promises it will be out this year.  In the meantime, A Perfect Circle have announced a few tour dates, but nothing in Seattle at the moment.

Thinking about turning that spare room into a game room, how about adding an Alice Cooper pinball machine?  “Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle” will feature modern and classic music, not just the hits.  The pinball machine is still in development, but Cooper recorded a video tease to get fans excited.  Alice Cooper will be on tour with Deep Purple in late summer.
