ROCK REPORT MONDAY 5/5

Monday, May, 5 2014

A custom-made $10,000 guitar that was stolen from Zakk Wylde’s tour bus has been returned to the rocker. His Blue Bullseye Gibson was swiped after a show in Chicago in March. It turned up at a pawn shop where the TV show “Hardcore Pawn: Chicago” is filmed. An employee originally paid around $50 for the guitar but the owners quickly realized the instrument was something special, identified it and got in touch with Zakk Wylde’s manager.

The guitar is one of two Pelham Blue Les Paul guitars bearing Wylde’s signature bulls-eye pattern and was custom-made for the guitarist in 2010.

GRILLBOTS!

Friday, May, 2 2014

There’s a new robot that can clean your grill. The Grillbot has a trio of rotating brass brushes and dances around your grill while scraping away all the grease and grime.

Once Grillbot is done, the brushes can be detached and thrown in the sink for easy cleaning. They're also dishwasher-safe if you feel like doing even less work.

It’s made of heat-resistant plastic and can supposedly withstand temperatures up to 250 degrees. The Grillbot costs $129.95.

Wireless Underwear!

Friday, May, 2 2014

Carrying a phone in your pocket all day may seem harmless, but there's a growing body of evidence linking devices to impotence, infertility and low sperm count.

New boxer shorts can protect your package from cellphone radiation. The Wireless underwear is woven with a mesh of silver that protects your private parts from electromagnetic rays from phones, tablets and other devices.

The silver also makes them antimicrobial, protecting them from bacteria and keeping them smelling fresh.
The boxers will cost $58 a pair and should be out in July.

ROCK REPORT - FRIDAY

Friday, May, 2 2014

Following the release of a number of photos of Kurt Cobain‘s death scene in recent weeks, CBS has acquired a copy of a note found in his wallet at the time of his death.

The handwritten note, obtained from files released by the Seattle Police Department, is written on stationery from the Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco, and it reads:“Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife, even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all (your) money for doping and whoring…”

The rest of the note is cut off in the picture shown by CBS. This note is separate from Cobain’s suicide note, which read in part, “I have a goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy.”


On this day in rock history.....2006

Tool released their fourth and most recent album “10,000 Days.” It was a #1 album on the Billboard 200 in the U.S.  (also was a #1 album in: Canada, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Netherlands, Norway, and Portugal.) The record has sold nearly 3 million copies worldwide.

Guitarist Adam Jones received the Grammy Award for Best Recording Package for his work on the 10,000 Days packaging. The song “The Pot” was nominated for the “Best Hard Rock Performance” Grammy.
