Slight Update for Thursday 14th July, 2011

Former MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer To Join 'Rock'n'Roll Rat Pack'

SCRAP METAL Announces John Corabi Will Perform August 5th NASHVILLE, TN (July 14, 2011) - Celebrity rock super group SCRAP METAL announced John Corabi former lead singer of MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE SCREAM and UNION will join them as special guest star performing at the upcoming SCRAP METAL summer rock concert event at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den in Uncasville, CT on Friday, August 5, 2011.

SCRAP METAL, the celebrity rock super group whose members have sold over 50 million records worldwide, was co-founded by Nashville rockers Gunnar Nelson (Nelson /"Love and Affection") and Mark Slaughter (Slaughter /"Fly to the Angels").  The August 5th summer rock event will star twin lead front men Matthew and Gunnar Nelson (NELSON /"After the Rain"); Joe Lynn Turner former lead singer of DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW; and Janet Gardner former lead singer of the all-girl rock band (VIXEN / "Cryin", "Edge of a Broken Heart").

"The entire cast of Scrap Metal looks forward to playing these gigs at the Mohegan Sun all year... and they get better and better every time," enthuses Gunnar Nelson. "We're going to bring our A-game with every intention of blowing the roof off the place.  Every Scrap show at the Mohegan isn't just a 'show'... it's a rock festival on one stage. Be there or be square!"

"If it looks like we're having fun up there," adds Matthew Nelson,  "...YOU'RE RIGHT!"

Since the rock'n'roll rat pack's motto is you can never have too many guitars, the summer concert event will feature double lead guitars with both guitar virtuosos Howie Simon (ALCATRAZ) and Neil Zaza sharing double-duty on-stage. Rounding out the Scrap Metal musical guest stars will be drummer Bobby Rock (NELSON / VINNIE VINCENT INVASION); and Todd Rogers on keyboard.

SCRAP METAL live concert events feature over 90 minutes of top rock hits performed by the original band's lead singers.  Previous SCRAP METAL rock'n'roll rat pack members include Mark Slaughter (SLAUGHTER); Eric Martin (MR. BIG); Jimi Jamison; Jani Lane (formerly WARRANT); John Payne (ASIA);  Kelly Keagy (NIGHT RANGER); C.J. Snare (FIREHOUSE);  Steve Plunkett (AUTOGRAPH); Jeff Scott Soto (formerly JOURNEY); and Kip Winger (WINGER). 
The SCRAP METAL live summer rock concert event is Friday, August 5, 2011 at 8pm at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den, 1 Mohegan Sun Boulevard, Uncasville, CT  06382.
The Wolf Den is located in the center of the action, in Casino of the Earth.  For general information call Mohegan Sun at 1-888-226-7711 or visit

Uriah Heep take 'Into the Wild' almost literally!

British rockers Uriah Heep, who are currently out on their World Tour in support of their latest album 'Into the Wild,' released through Frontiers records, are playing some shows in regions where they appear to be taking their albums' title literally to the next level!

Guitarist and founder member Mick Box, has been posting through social networking site, Facebook about just how the bands' current surroundings are and I have to say, it's like these guys aren't afraid to go anywhere!

"Heep in War Zone! Today we play a concert in Vladikavkaz Russia, which is close to Groznyy, 300 miles north of Baghdad and close to Iraq and Iran! There will be much ducking and diving going on!

The shows here have been amazing, despite being In a dodgy war zone, and we have security up our backsides. Geezers with AK 47's all over the place! We have the president of Nalchik's personal bodyguards! Crazy stuff! Into The Wild indeed!
Check Mick's Facebook page out here:

Mick Box has also recently been updating his own regular blog at his personal website:

It's a blog that he actually started doing, when UK magazine, Classic Rock approached him last year to contribute and he did just that on a weekly basis. He's now continued to do so, when time allows, as I say at his own site. I must say, it's always well worth the read!
