Unfortunately, fans of Metallica in Australia and New Zealand are going to have to put their plans on seeing the band on tour on hold for a bit.

According to reports from the band’s website, singer/guitarist James Hetfield has reentered rehab. Hetfield has long battled the demons of drug and alcohol usage and,  according to fellow band members, “had to reenter a treatment program to work on his recovery again.” The trip to rehab will postpone several dates the band had scheduled in October and November in Australia and New Zealand.

Renegades Radio Podcast – ORDER IN THE COURT! (Or Famous Court Cases in Music History)

RayParkerHueyLewis

ALL RISE!!!

That’s right, this week on the Renegades Radio Podcast we’re heading to the courtroom! In the history of music, there have been several cases where musicians and/or singers have had to prove that they, in fact, did create the music that they recorded. In some cases, the artists have proven that they weren’t influenced. In some others, however, there has been some…questions.

From The Chiffons to Slipknot, we’ll take a look at these court cases and offer our own opinion on whether the judge (or, in some cases, the jury) got the decision right. Let us know what you think as the Renegades Radio Podcast holds court!
