MUDVAYNE To Issue New CD In September
MUDVAYNE are currently holed up in a Minneapolis, MN studio working on material for their follow-up to L.D. 50. A September release through Epic Records is expected.

The following article originally appeared in today's edition of The New York Daily News:
The surviving members of NIRVANA are fed up with being in limbo.
Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic's ongoing legal battle with Courtney Love, the widow of their bandmate Kurt Cobain, has held up the release of a NIRVANA boxed set, which is to include "You Know You're Right", the last song Cobain recorded with the band before his 1994 suicide.
Now Grohl and Novoselic are demanding that Love see a psychiatrist. And in a motion filed in a Seattle court, the musicians say she must do it by June 1 � and that they want to choose the shrink.
In December, Grohl and Novoselic claimed in court papers that Love was "irrational, mercurial, self-centered, unmanageable, inconsistent and unpredictable," the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.
"Shades of Frances Farmer," said Love's lawyer, O. Yale Lewis, referring to the iconoclastic Hollywood actress forced to undergo horrifying psychiatric treatments.

FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl will be portraying the Devil in the new TENACIOUS D video for the track "Tribute". The video is set to premiere on April 25th on MTV2.

COAL CHAMBER Experience "Dark Days" Ahead
COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara reportedly walked off stage 20-25 minutes into the group's set last night in Lubbock, Texas after announcing to the confused audience that they had just witnessed �the last COAL CHAMBER song...ever!� The three remaining members then proceeded to play two more songs with guitarist Meegs at the mic, before the band called it a night, with drummer Mikey demolishing his kit on his way out.
According to eyewitness reports, the anti-climactic ending to the group's performance was the culmination of an ongoing dispute between Dez and guitarist Meegs, who made no secret of their open disdain for each other during the brief set, with Meegs reportedly hitting Dez with his guitar, kicking speakers off the stage, and spitting on the singer at various points during the show.
Rumors of in-fighting in the COAL CHAMBER camp have been running rampant for years, with friction between Meegs and Dez being largely blamed for the group's withdrawal from 2000's Tattoo The Earth trek (although the official reason was that the band wanted to �focus on writing the new album�).
COAL CHAMBER are expected to resume their Jagermeister tour with DROWNING POOL and ILL NINO tonight at Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

FIELDY, Don't Give Up Your Day Job!
Interesting fact: KORN bassist Reginald �Fieldy� Arvizu's hip hop project FIELDY'S DREAMS has sold only 16,000 copies of its debut CD, Rock N Roll Gangster, according to Soundscan. Meanwhile, KORN's most recent release, 1999's Issues, has shifted 3.05 million units. Despite this, Fieldy is threatening to begin work on a second solo album later this year. We're waiting with bated breath (ahem!).
