Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row) has posted the following SebastianBlog at his official website:
"Sometimes, in life, you make true friends. A true friend is someone whom you can see and then not see, but when you see them again, it is like no time has passed at all. A true friend is someone whom you can laugh with, talk with, hang out with, rock with, and confide in. Then there is the friend who gives you so much, you can't express in words how much they mean to you. When I look back on my life, I have to say that one of my true friends is Mr. W. Axl Rose.
As everyone now knows, when Guns N' Roses made their triumphant return to New York City a few weeks ago, Axl was cool enough to invite me on stage all four nights to sing with him the Guns N' Roses song of my choice, which happens to be 'My Michelle'. During the NYC shows Axl asked me if I wanted to fly with him to Europe to duet with him in England at Donington and Hammersmith. Of course I said YES and then I mentioned to him the recording of the new CD 'Angel Down' and how much it would mean for our band to open some Guns N' Roses shows. Axl's response was to offer the band the whole European tour.

Speed/death metal outfit Accursed Dawn has officially broken up. Formed in 2002, the band released an album with Pop Faction Records last year. Here's a statement from vocalist Brett Coverdale :
"Well, here we are, exactly 1 year since the last show we played under the Accursed Dawn moniker. To use the term "broken-up" to describe the band's current situation would be sufficient, but there's more to it than that. When things went south last March in Alabama, we all walked away from the fray a little confused, a little angry, and mostly just tired of being around each other everyday. There will certainly not be any finger pointing, no one was or is innocent. These things happen, often to the best of friends & band mates. Last May, Chuck, Will, and myself went out again with our friends J and Alex acting as fill-ins; and we all had such a blast being out with our friends in The Knife Trade again. It was a pinnacle of sorts for the remaining members.
