Don Henley Reveals Guests for All-Star Country Album Eagles founding member and musical legend Don Henley recently previewed eight tracks from his new solo country-infused album at a press event in Nashville, which revealed several big names who will appear on the tracks. The sneak peak unveiled collaborations with artists like Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Alison Krauss and Ashley Monroe. Henley even did a duet with the one and only Dolly Parton on a cover of the Louvin Brothers’ “When I Stop Dreaming,” and rock and roll legend Mick Jagger joins in on “Bramble Rose.” The record, called Cass County after the Texas county where he was born and raised, was produced by Stan Lynch, former drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, with whom Henley has often collaborated and also co-wrote some of the tunes. Despite the roster of collaborators and the southern-infused twang, Henley says he’d prefer it not to be dubbed his “country record,” per se. “I’m associated with California a lot because of that other band that I play in, but I really and truly was born and raised in Cass County, Texas. I’m a Southerner and a Texan,” he explains to Rolling Stone. “I have ancestors in Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia. It’s not me trying to do the ‘Don Henley country album.’ It’s who I am and where I come from.” Much of the recording was done in Nashville, which Henley praised as a town that lives up to its Music City nickname. “I can truthfully say that I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career,” Henley says. “A lot of the reason is because of the people who participated. So it was a real pleasure.” “It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with this record. I have no idea

what’s going to happen because the musical landscape now is so different,” he says. “You know, the bar is pretty low. [Lynch] and I both have an abiding appreciation for rock ‘n’ roll and country music, and the history of it. I think that’s what’s missing from a lot of records today.” The album does not yet have a release date, but will be available soon via Capitol Records. It will be Henley’s first solo album since 2000’s Inside Job. P. Diddy Arrested for Assaulting His Sons College Football Coach Sean "Diddy" Combs was arrested for assault on the UCLA campus Monday afternoon after getting into a fight with a football coach at the school's athletic facility, CBS Los Angeles reports. The rapper's son, Justin Combs, plays on UCLA's team as a defensive back. UCLA police confirmed the arrest to an Orange County Register reporter. "Shortly after 12:30 p.m. today, Sean Combs (also known as P. Diddy) was arrested at UCLA’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell," a university spokesperson wrote on the school's site. "No one was seriously injured and UCPD is investigating. Combs is expected to be transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Inmate Reception Center later this evening." "I'm thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation," UCLA football coach Jim Mora said in a statement. "This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time." Prior to the alleged incident, the coach had

allegedly been "riding Justin, screaming intensely at him," a source told TMZ, during a strength-and-conditioning exercise as Diddy watched on the sidelines. The source claimed that Diddy approached the coach in his office and grabbed the man. Another source told the gossip site that the rapper had wanted to call the authorities himself, but that someone took his phone from him. The rapper is reportedly still being held at the school's campus jail. "We are aware of the reports and are looking into the matter," UCLA director of media relations Phil Hampton told USA Today. "We will share confirmed facts when they are available." A representative for Diddy declined to comment on the incident. Def Leppard Guitarist Vivian Campbell: 'My Cancer Has Returned' Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell will be forced to miss the opening dates of the band's summer tour after revealing that he is once again battling cancer. "I'm saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned. However, I'm beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while," Campbell wrote on Facebook. "I’m still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon." Campbell's announcement comes just three days before Def Leppard embark on their summer amphitheater trek with Styx and Tesla; however, the band's June 23rd touropening gig in Tampa, Florida will go on as scheduled. Trixter guitarist Steve Brown, who previously filled in for Campbell when cancer treatments forced him to miss some Def Leppard shows, will once again serve as Campbell's temporary replacement, Eddie Trunk reports. A rep for the band told Entertainment Weekly that Campbell is only expected to miss the first few summer shows and that his treatments will be tailored around the band's touring schedule. Campbell was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's

lymphoma in March 2013, although he didn't share his condition with fans until three months later. "I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of 'the cough that wouldn't quit,'" Campbell said in a statement at the time. Iron Maiden Announce New Double Album 'The Book of Souls' Metal legends Iron Maiden have announced the release of their new album, The Book of Souls, for later this fall. The album will set a couple of milestones for the group: It will be the band's first-ever double studio LP and also feature the sextet's longest-ever song. The 92-minute album will be released on September 4th, a date predicated on frontman Bruce Dickinson getting time to recover from his recent bout with tongue cancer. He got the "all clear" last month. The band recorded the album late last year in Paris with producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley, who has co-produced the group's records since 2000's Brave New World. Maiden recorded "finishing touches" on the album earlier this year. Artist Mark Wilkinson, who has previously made art for Maiden, Judas Priest and Marillion, designed The Book of Souls' cover. The band said that they're excited about the personal advancements they achieved while making the record. "We approached this album in a different way to how we've recorded previously," bassist and frequent songwriter Steve Harris said in a statement. "A lot of the songs were actually written while we were there in the studio and we rehearsed and recorded them straight away while they were still fresh, and I think that immediacy really shows in the songs. They have almost a live feel to them." The album will be available in standard and deluxe hardcover editions, triple vinyl and high res audio. Clocking in at over 18 minutes, album closer "The Empire of the Clouds" – which Dickinson wrote himself – is the band's longest-ever song. It's also worth nothing that "Tears of a Clown," as listed in the track list below, is an original Maiden song and not a Smokey Robinson & the Miracles cover.

With everything the legendary group Lamb of God has been through over the years, only a highly publicized forced hiatus could slow them down, but never down and out. In a situation that would surely dismantle the majority of bands out there, only a strong dedication to each other along with undying love and support from and for an unparalleled fan base, they are releasing yet another album. The tracks from “VII: Sturm Und Drang” (translates to “Storm and Stress” set to release July 24, 2015 on Epic Records) tell of the trials and tribulations and perseverance of a man unjustly imprisoned. And dead set on continuing to share the life experience of not only himself, but the whole band, in which they were forced to endure. With this story told thru their documentary film “As The Palaces Burn” and on the forth coming musical release “VII,” supported by a world tour, I managed to steal a few minutes of time from Virginia resident and Lamb of God guitarist Willie Adler. Growing up with a brother isn't always the easiest thing to do especially when you’re the younger one. So my curiosity has me wondering how the relationship between these siblings being in the same band and on the road together holds up. Laughing at the question, Willie says, “It's good and bad. I have my family out there doing

what we do, but then we have our deep seeded sort of rivalry. We fight like any other brothers would, but it's great. I wouldn't change it for the world and with that being said we have each others backs.” Obviously, they have had great influence on each other in music, but would he give Chris credit for getting him to this point of his career. “Most definitely along with my wife, who has been the biggest support system you could ever imagine. It has been impactful for me to see Chris do his thing and that spurs me to be on the same level. I look at him and I'm just blown away at how awesome he is, not only as a musician, but as an all around person.” Change is a big part of maintaining success. I asked, what was the biggest part of him that needed to be changed in order to further his career? He said, “I had to get myself into some serious shape, re-evaluate my life on a lot of levels in order to stay at my best. I made a lot of changes. I don't party the way I use to. Being a touring band, you are inundated with so much garbage. It's hard not to get caught up in that lifestyle. As years are added, you leave a lot of stuff behind like the self destructive behavior. I hate to say that it was a sacrifice, because it has been such a blessing, but I feel so much better than I have in years. It's about

personal responsibility, maintaining a level of professionalism and sense of self.” With not much to compare to other than a few high school projects, his dedication on the musical front has been living and breathing Lamb of God. With 16 years invested into the project, the progression of the band over the duration should be interesting. Excitedly, Willie says, “It's been a whirlwind. We never set out to be who we are today. My brother and I have been playing together forever, so when the five of us hooked up it basically gave us an excuse to drink beer, play loud music and have fun. It's been crazy how this evolved and took off. Just sitting back and looking at it, I have been so lucky. I'll never take it for granted, being blessed with this once in a lifetime situation. Overwhelming is the word I like to use.” After the amount of success that Lamb of God has enjoyed through the years, there seems to be a bit of pressure to continue on that same level not only in the studio, but performing live as well. Even as a seasoned veteran, he tells me that there are still nerves before a show. “I definitely feel it before each show. That happens when the energy starts to build and I'm trying to focus. It means that it's still important. The fans came out to see us perform and I don't want to disappoint them, you feel their excitement, so being nervous is a good thing to build off of.” When there is an upside and a down side is always close by. Being on the road is no different. Traveling around the world and getting to see different things all the time is a blessing and while Willie loves that 45 minutes to an hour up on stage performing, being a family man at heart can prove to be trying. “Having to be away from family is always tough.” He explains, “Especially when we are in Europe, not having the convenience of being in touch is difficult.” That being said, balancing life's other obligations with the band can't be easy. “It isn't!” Willie says, “The band is bigger than the sum of its parts. It takes priority, if a tour comes up and we have something to do, that's it, no rescheduling.

The band takes number one priority. You have to have a strong woman behind you in order to deal with that and luckily I do. I think the other guys are sharing the same sediment. With the prior mentioned time off touring, writing and recording had to become a major priority, but yet a balance is important. “We usually take about a year off to write and record but during the hiatus new material was already in the works. Randy wrote the lyrics to our second single off the new album, called “512” while he was in cell 512 in Pankrac Prison (Prague, Czech Republic). The writing process was really close to what we usually do. Mark and myself got together and wrote guitar lines and prepared them, so when we came together, we had the ideas musically. I will say though, that this time, when we all hit the rehearsal room, it turned out to be the most cohesive effort since “Ashes of the Wake.” Instead of each writing our own songs, it was a collaborative effort.” Adler continues, “In my opinion, this has made the album our greatest collection of music to date, the most diverse. There are moments that will have people shaking their heads like what the f*ck and equal amounts of moments that are just slaying and brutal. This is exactly where all the Burn the Priest fans want Lamb of God to be.” While discussing the European tour dates being a festival tour and not having the set time to play more than one or two tracks off the new album, Willie expresses how important the U.S. Tour will be. “After not having the opportunity to open up our “Resolution” release like we wanted to, due to those unforeseen circumstances, being able to hit the states and share “VII: Sturm Und Drang” in full force has me excited to really explore it and play these fresh songs.” It's always interesting to find out when a musician first realized that success has happened. For some, it hits like a brick wall, but for others it happens gradually. “I began to notice the tides turning around 2004 Ozzfest. We just released ‘Ashes’ and

we were in direct support on the second stage. That was the biggest crowd we had played for. Seeing their reaction to what we were doing. I remember thinking that we just might be on to something. That was the defining moment for me.” My friend Ronnie is a huge fan, so I asked him for a question. He tells me that Mr. Adler is quite the cook. So he wants to know what his favorite dish is to prepare. With a chuckle Willie says, “Awesome question Ronnie! Over Memorial Day weekend, I finally perfected my rib recipe, that's my jam right now. I have been searching and I nailed it. That is my favorite thing going right now.” When I asked Willie what he would like

everybody to know about him, this was his response, “I want them to know how appreciative I am for everything and for everyone one who is a Lamb fan or just a music fan in general. How much I appreciate the arts and the people who appreciate the arts. That's it, just how thankful I am for everything that has been afforded me.” I love this job! It's getting to sit down and talk with iconic people like Willie Adler that reminds you how incredible the world we live in is. Lamb of God will be performing at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on July 25th with Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine and Motionless In White.

Europe is a Swedish rock/heavy metal band formed in 1979, outside of Stockholm, Sweden best known for songs like "The Final Countdown" and "Superstitious." The band consists of five members, Joey Tempest on vocals, John Norum on guitar, John Leven on bass, Ian Haugland on drums and Mic Michaeli on keyboards and piano. We sat down and talked to lead singer and founder Joey Tempest. Europe has not toured in the U.S. for 11years and we asked Joey how the U.S. audience has welcomed them back and he responded, "The U.S. audience is great. It's a young rock and roll country to us. If you look at the artists and everything that comes from here, touring here is a highlight for us. Touring here this time has much better energy and we have had five new albums as well, so we sort of get the buzz that we're a new band and we're on a musical adventure. We're taking chances with the same lineup, it's like a solid new band, and I think that word is sort of spreading slowly as well. So we just need to work a bit more here to let people know that we've been back for 11 years with 5 new albums, DVDS and we just want to introduce ourselves again!" If your a Europe fan here in the U.S. there is good news. Europe now has an Americian

management, so it will be easier for them to perform here. They also have a new album entitled, "War of Kings," which was released a few months ago. I asked Joey how the new album is going and he said, "We are very pleased with it. We're on a journey. American producers as you know, David Kop, who produced Rival Sons, did a great job. We found the new expression, it's got a good vibe. It's also got a classic rock vibe going on. We don't find new albums, we switch producer studios. Trying to get better playing, producing, gotten nerdy with sounds, and with the same five guys from teenage years, we're having a ball. War of Kings is probably the proudest we've been of an album in a long time. It's got some great moments." We asked Joey how Europe has evolved since the begining and he said, "It's been a long journey. In a way we've come full circle as well. We came into the eighty's as 20 year olds and into the affluent, prolific, whatever profound eighty's; we survived it. Everybody was toying with new equipment and digital; it was crazy. Funky reverbs on the snare drums and all kinds of stuff, but you learn from that, you go through that, and we survived. So when we started 2004,

we said "Let's take the essence of rock and try to go on our own journey and not emulate anything; just have fun." So we've come sort of full circle. The last album is very back to sort of classic rock with a sort of a fresh, modern style, thanks to Dave Kop producing it. So, it's just really cool to be able to make these albums similar to some of the great albums we grew up with." Joey tells us that The Final Countdown was an important musical accomplishment as well as their third album, because they got to tour the U.S. and the U.K. And "Wings of Tomorrow," which was their second album, was where they started learning to write better. He said, "We got in the proper studio for the first time. It was only a couple hours a week because we couldn't afford it, but it was a great experience. Those moments are great." Joey tells us what to expect if you have never seen Europe, "It's five original members that really love what we're doing. It's a labor of love. We really enjoy and we feed off the audience. But I mean if you're a guitar player, you come to see one of the best guitar players in the

world, John Norum. I was 15, he was 14 when I saw him play and we started a band called Force. I was just so lucky to be in the same spot, same village as this guy. He's still next to me and blows my mind every night. Amazing guitar player, but the whole band, i'm just so proud. It's the best job in the world. So you're going to see an explosive, melodic classic rock band that has a modern edge, that enjoys playing. Hopefully you're going to get caught up in it. We get caught up in it." For the future of Europe, Joey tells us that they will, "Keep re-establishing the band. America is one place that we love. It's a rock and roll country of the highest degree. We'd like to do some more work here. But we'd like to continue our journey in the studio as well. Find that deeper expression and keep moving, and this is our world. We've done this since, we were fifteen and we don't know anything else. So there's no point trying to think about anything else. This is what we do."

In the late ‘80s, no one ever thought twice about religiously wearing a shirt with purple lettering that spelled out the name of a Disney princess because there was something so raw and strong about the music that it represented. Full Access Magazine was given the opportunity to interview Tom Keifer, of the band, Cinderella. Keifer’s melodious, shrill voice introduced some of us to the blues, country, ballads, and pure rock and roll, and he’s creating that same haven for us to this day. As a small child, Keifer found his initial musical inspiration from the music he saw performed on TV. He loved seeing the Beatles perform, and he also loved the Monkees TV show. “Nesmith’s (actor on the Monkees TV show) guitar playing was amazing and the music was actually quite good; those were probably my two earliest inspirations to want to pick up a guitar and play music,” Keifer reminisced. His family was very supportive of his musical interests so his mom hired a guitar teacher to come to his home and begin his formal music study when Keifer was only eight years old. The teacher not only taught him chords on his ¾ size acoustic guitar, but also had him strum while singing Beatles and American Folk songs. By the time he moved to middle school, he started hearing songs by the Rolling

11

Stones and started playing that music with friends in garages. Soon, he desired an electric guitar, as he moved away from the Beatles and the Monkees, and moved towards a “hard rock, little bit of dirty vibe, like the Stones, Zeppelin, and Aerosmith.” One day, a drummer friend that was a bit older than Keifer, showed up at his house with a record entitled “ B.B. King Live at the Regal.” They put it on the turn table and started listening. Keifer’s first reaction to this music was,” This guy sounds like Jimmy Paige!” Then, he learned that it was the other way around; this was pure blues, and he realized that his rock heroes had influences. “I just started digging back to…B.B. King, and got into Albert King, Johnny Winter and Muddy Waters, all the way to Son house, and just fell in love with the blues…it’s really a healthy thing for musicians to do – go back and interpret what your heroes like…it helps you put your own stamp on it and bring out what is unique in you,” Keifer explained. Offers to join tours started pouring in by the time Keifer got to high school and he wanted to drop out of school and start his journey to stardom, but his mom had other hopes. “We didn’t have a lot of money, and I had a really cheap Ibanez imitation… there was a beautiful ’78 custom Gibson Les Paul on the wall at the music store that

she knew that I wanted so she promised that if I get through school and get my high school diploma, that guitar would be mine… I still have that guitar.” In all those years playing in cover bands in the Philadelphia-New Jersey area club circuit, Keifer was primarily a guitarist; 90% of the time he played guitar, only to stand up and sing when the lead singer had to take a break. He soon got tired of playing other people’s music so he started writing his own, but he couldn’t find the right singer for his original music. “I was looking for what I was hearing in my head when I was writing, so I started singing on the demos that I was making…and people said that they liked it…that’s how it all started,” Keifer reflected. The band, Cinderella was then born. Then, in 1986, the band Cinderella released “Night Songs,” its debut album. Every guitar part and every vocal melody on this album and the albums to follow were based on the blues scale. The lyrics described everyday things that “were derivative of blues kind of lyrics; they were about hard times, good times, falling in love, falling out of love, real emotions.” Although the band had a gritty, bluesy, and metal tone, the band exemplified the Glam look of the 1980’s. When asked about the fashion inspiration for the band and the Glam Rock genre as a whole, Keifer described it as the following,” I grew up in the ‘70s…just like the music, you are influenced by your heroes, and you try to emulate them in every way…Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, and Steven Tyler were all flamboyant and had a flash to them…when it came to the ‘80s, we had an MTV camera in front of us, so I think that we all took that glam look that was in the ‘70s and take it completely over the top because now there was a visual with videos.” After Night Songs came the album, Long Cold Winter, which still remained loyal to the blues, but added more production value. Keifer compared the album to the debut album and said, “We introduced acoustic guitars, pianos, and dobros to paint a bigger

picture…it honestly was the picture that we would have wanted to paint on the first album, but we were inexperienced…the difference between the first two albums is a production thing because melodically and lyrically the records are the same.” Heartbreak Station was the third album to be released by Cinderella. Musically and lyrically, it followed the path created by the albums released before it, but the production style changed again. “The biggest difference with Heartbreak Station is that we decided to strip away all of the bombast production of the ‘80s…I remember walking in when it was being mixed and grabbing all the effects returns, all the faders, and just pointing them down saying that I didn’t want any of that,” Keifer detailed, “We were just trying to get away from that and make an album that was a little more in your face, nothing between you and the music, and the musicians… .years later it holds up a little bit because it doesn’t have that time stamp to a certain decade.” One would think that Keifer’s upper-head voice scream might be difficult to sustain through one song, and especially for show after show, but to Keifer, it is the most natural place for him to sing. Some people have to learn to scream properly so that they don’t hurt themselves, but Keifer had a natural placement with his voice that worked. He was able to unleash his voice day after day with no problems until one day on the Heartbreak Station tour, he woke up and his voice was gone. After years of tests, there was finally a diagnosis: Keifer had a paralyzed vocal cord (the left one to be exact) as a result of sudden neurological damage (unrelated to singing); he was told that we would never sing again. “It happened at the peak of Cinderella’s career…life was looking rosy, and all of a sudden, the rug was ripped out overnight,” he somberly recollected. After years of voice and psychological therapy, Keifer was able to retrain his vocal chords. Every day of his life, he does an hour and a half of exercises to keep the right throat

muscles active and strong to compensate for the weakness caused by the neurological damage, and because of this persistence, he proved the doctors wrong; his voice is now just as strong as it has ever been. If you see him perform live, or watch a recent performance online, you will hear that same voice that we were drawn into in the ‘80s, but this is only accomplished because of Keifer’s relentless pursuit to strengthen his voice. Even on the day of a show, his warm ups before the show take as long as the actual show itself. While most musicians tend to take it easier as their career matures, Keifer remains unequivocally steadfast in his commitment to his music. In 2013, Keifer released “The Way Life Goes,” his first solo album that was a culmination of songs written over the preceding 10 years while living in Nashville, TN. Keifer described the album as a “labor of love” that he worked on when he had free time. Eventually, there were a pile of songs and Keifer thought, “There is an album in there.” He leaned on his traditional influences like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Aerosmith, but he began to find additional inspiration in more contemporary music from bands like Train, Buck Cherry, and Jet. The album is

13

also the creative offspring of his wife, as she co-write and co-produced it, but it doesn’t deviate from the evolutionary path of Cinderella. Keifer described the album as,”somewhere between Long Cold Winter and Heartbreak Station with a little bit more of a contemporary production and mix.” Tom Keifer is now travelling the country on his “The Way Life Goes” tour and you will hear some of your Favorite Cinderella songs played just as you remember them. Keifer’s favorite song to perform both back in the ‘80s and today is “Nobody’s Fool.” His calm, comforting voice smiled when he said,” I have always loved singing the ballads because there’s more space in them; I get the opportunity to really sing… I love singing Nobody’s Fool, I always have, and that’s probably it if I have to pick a favorite.” As such, you can hear that emotion reflected in his voice in that song: “I scream my heart out - just to make a dime, and with that dime I bought your love, but now I've changed my mind…I'm not your fool.” Tom Keifer is touring the U.S., so check into his website (www.TomKeifer.com) for dates so you don’t miss out on an opportunity to hear the blues, the rock, and the ongoing dedication of a true musician.

You audition for a reality show and make it through. During the next stage, you hit the end of the road, or so you think. A second opportunity is presented to you, but this time it entails joining four other aspiring artists in a group scenario, why not! With this chance you make it all the way to third place on the show and land a record deal on a major label. Sounds like a dream right? Ask Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony and she will tell you, “I still haven't woken up.” At 16 years of age, she had a vision. Even though that vision played out a bit differently, she wouldn't trade it for the world. Growing up in Miami, Florida, she knew that stardom was her destiny and in order to realize her goal, she was well aware that putting in the hours wasn't going to be a choice, it had to be a way of life. After Lauren, Dinah, Ally, Camila and Normani all separately wowed Simon Cowell on the “X-Factor” during the boot camp stage, instead of letting them go by way of elimination, he had an idea. Cowell took this five piece puzzle, put it together and the picture it presented was nothing short of a work of art from that moment on. Let's fast forward to present day. A top ten album, “Reflection,” which produced a platinum single called, “Worth It” and two

other “Billboard Hot 100” singles, touring the world and multiple award nominations over the past two plus years and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down. Now 19, I manage to track Lauren down by phone while in the U.K. amidst Fifth Harmony’s current world tour and laying down some new tracks in the studio for their next effort. With everything happening in warp speed for these five ladies, I ask Lauren how she is handling the success. “It really is incredible. When you work so hard on something and put so much effort into it and you see this kind of result, it is beyond rewarding.” As she finishes answering the question, we get a surprise interruption, Camila jumps on the phone to say hello and jokingly attempts to hijack the interview. After a few seconds, Camila says goodbye and disappears just as fast. I imagine that it would be difficult at this level to find a few minutes of privacy always being in the public eye. Do you enjoy all the constant attention? “It is tough, the whole invasiveness aspect. Although, we chose this path and it is all part of the package. To know that we have reached so many girls and that they look up to us. I enjoy the opportunity to hopefully say

something that's meaningful to them, that could help them in a positive way. In that regard, it does mean a lot. Like anything, it has it's ups and downs.” Knowing that there is more to life than Fifth Harmony, keeping up with family and other obligations can be extremely difficult at this juncture of a career. How is it possible to juggle everything? “It's not,” she says with a laugh. “Work definitely takes priority, but I feel that there are times where you have to take moments. When my grandmother recently passed away, I knew that in my heart what I needed to do was be with my family, so that's what I did. It comes down to prioritizing, but the majority of the time work comes first.” When it comes to writing material, as you are considered new to the business, with so many people guiding you in the proper direction, a lot of the time songs are written for you as with the current 5H album. Most of the time, as in this case, you are allowed to at least inject your ideas into the project. “We had a role in the creative process. It was cohesive, the writers came to us asking what we wanted. Especially when it came to the language. We could change it to fit our personalities. We definitely had a big part in shaping the final product.” While working on their next album, the ladies will be writing material. It's always interesting finding out where inspiration is drawn from. “Personal experience is first and foremost.” Lauren continues, “While traveling the world, it gets pretty inspirational.” One of the most incredible feelings as an artist is knowing that you have personally touched someone making a difference in their lives. “When a person comes up to me and tells me a story about how one of our songs has changed them or a helped them through a tough time, it reminds me of what it's all about, a relationship with your fans and

sharing with them your personal experience.” Having people in your life to influence you is important. Lauren had told me how she draws from her family in so many ways. For her, it has also been a collective helping to shape things. “The girls of 5H have been a really strong positive influence, but none bigger than my grandmother.” Several times throughout our conversation Lana Del Rey’s name had been mentioned. Lauren says, “Lana has been inspirational, influential and a true role model for me. Definitely my favorite artist out there. I would love to play a show with her. That would be another dream come true.” At this point our connection was starting to fade, but we had that chance to talk about how growing up with siblings had helped in understanding what it takes to spend so much time together with her Fifth Harmony family. While she loves seeing all the beautiful places around the world and trying new things to eat, being away from her family and not being able to see them everyday is the most difficult thing she has had to endure while being on the road. She loves making their music videos. It gives her a chance, “To have fun, especially in the ‘Worth It’ shoot with the wind blowing thru my hair and getting to act all cool,” she said laughing. “Everyone does it when they are little, acting like you are in a video while playing your favorite songs.” During our talk, I had the chance to meet a young lady who is very intelligent, fun loving, spirited, outspoken, sincere, captivating and passionate with a great personality. I was truly inspired throughout our conversation. By the way, you know you made it when you have your own Barbie Doll. Congratulations to Fifth Harmony and Happy Birthday to you Lauren.

Fifth Harmony will be performing at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on July 30th and at the Dr. Phillips Center For The Performing Arts in Orlando on July 31st. Tickets are still available. Full Access Magazine

Author & Punisher Melk En Honing Housecore Records 33322 by Terry Canter

In the vast depth that is extreme music, it takes ingenuity and a great deal of creativity to set an artist apart. In Tristan Shone’s case, a background in electromechanical engineering and sculpture not only made him wholly unique in his production, but also defined his performances: a man all his own, surrounded by the great beasts of machinery he created. Shone’s sixth album as Author & Punisher, Melk En Honing, continues his experimentation in industrial and doom, blurring the line between man and machine. Produced by Pantera and Down frontman/ Housecore Records head Phil Anselmo, Melk En Honing is the most comprehensive visit to Shone’s mad scientist laboratory. Inside, he utilizes his musical inventions: his Masks, his Dub Machines, and his Drone Machines, from which flow his immense, unforgiving, and authentic brand of industrial doom metal. The centerpiece of the album, “Disparate”, seems to be an anthem celebrating Shone’s very ability to stand out, comparable to nothing — not even his past work. Hoisted above the track are discordant, lo-fi notes that would not be unwelcome on an early Burzum record, and as the song goes on, they fall gradually into the mix of mind-melting drone and virulent drums. “Disparate” moves into “Callous and Hoof”, which is both the first track to be released from the album and the point on Melk En Honing where every one of Shone’s inventions is dimed out to the point where you wonder whether man or machine is really in control. It’s truly an opportunity missed, though, to simply listen to this record. Genuine appreciation comes only with a good deal 21

of research into the equipment Shone has invented and employed to produce these sounds. While Author & Punisher is assuredly best enjoyed in a live setting, YouTube videos of performances and Shone explaining his machines suffice in bringing you into his world where, trapped and alone, a crazed inventor is forced into submission. And in that self-imposed cage, Author & Punisher comes alive. Lindemann Skills In Pills Warner Bros. Records gffff by Terry Canter

Ever since Rammstein’s “Führe Mich” was featured in the trailer for Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, I’ve thought of the two artists as representations of humanity at its most primal and depraved. Where Von Trier makes jealousy, grief, and desperation his muses, Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann does the same with sex. Whether it’s through simulated sodomy on stage or in his not-so-subtle lyrics, Lindemann thrives on being as sexually offensive as humanly possible. Admittedly, I hate to mention Von Trier in the same paragraph as Lindemann. While I adore Von Trier even at his most childish and provocative, Lindemann’s new act with Swedish multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren, simply titled Lindemann, has produced a debut album of God-awful, stomach-churning industrial shock rock called Skills in Pills, with listeners having the misfortune of hearing the German Lindemann sing in English. Super-fans of Lindemann and his work might be wiling to overlook some of the ludicrous decisions. His trademark baritone is ever present, whispering sadomasochistic sweet nothings into your ears as Tägtgren brings in bright synths and detuned guitars to play heavily and happily along with

fist-pumping drum beats. But with songs like “Ladyboy”, “Fat”, “Golden Shower”, and “Praise Abort”, all containing lyrics even clumsier and more revolting than you could imagine (“Let cry your pinky flower/ Give me, give me golden shower”), the album is like suffering from food poisoning at an underground hardcore show. Skills in Pills is just one vulgar track after the other, each trying to top the previous in level of outrage and offense. It’s like scrolling freely through 4chan on any given afternoon once all the middle schools have let out. Tägtgren’s instrumental contributions are the closest thing this album has to a redeeming quality. You might find yourself tapping your foot as long as you’re deliberately ignoring the lyrics. There’s nothing to gain or contribute from being shocking and offensive just for the sake of being shocking and offensive. The album ultimately feels useless and immature. In the case that curiosity gets the best of you, try not to listen to this on a full stomach. Jaill Brain Cream Burger Records ggggf by Terry Canter

A lot has happened to Vincent Kircher over the past three years, not all of it good. Not only did his band Jaill leave Sub Pop after two well-received but commercially lukewarm releases, he’s also lost two-thirds of his original lineup. No one ever said being in a band is easy. Working largely from the ground up with a new lineup in tow, Jaill’s fourth album, Brain Cream, understandably carries the

weight of Kircher’s plight, and the singer spends much of the record positioning himself as his own worst enemy. If there’s any doubt that he’s shouldering some blame for the rollercoaster ride of the past few years, read into the lyrics a bit. “I help my loved ones get away,” he laments on “Getaway”. “My love, it’s gonna destroy you again,” he prophesizes on “Change Reaction”. As far as song titles go, “Got an F” seems pretty self-explanatory. Elsewhere there are references to bleak winter mornings, days spent “high as shit,” and other dreary signposts that similarly point due south. Kircher’s jaded headspace can feel downright toxic at times — or at least it would if the band’s music didn’t prop Brain Cream up out of his funk. Jaill has always demonstrated a knack for quirky juxtaposition, but rarely has it been as stark as it is here. If the record’s lyrics make it sound like a miserablist’s dream come true, the band counterbalances things with a jangle pop sound that tinkers with surf (“Picking My Bones”), ’60s pop (“Just a Lovely Day”), and quaint psychedelia (“Slides and Slips”). Even the lacklustersounding “Draggin’” can’t get away from the airy sweetness that canvasses the record musically. This all throws a little shade onto just how caught in the doldrums Kircher really is, but that just makes Brain Cream that much more of a curious trip.
