What Caused Huey Morgan To Smash His Mug & Storm Off During 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks'?


Huey Morgan Rizzle Kicks Laura Whitmore Lemmy

What is it about BBC comedy panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks that gets all up in the grill of certain celebrity guests? Since 1996, the show has earned a reputation for childish humour and ribbing its celebs to the nth degree. Anyone without an ego of iron or the ability to laugh at themselves simply shouldn't agree to be a guest.

Huey Morgan
Huey Morgan Took Out His Rage On A Mug.

Yet once more we've seen a celebrity who couldn't handle the music show's immature quiz rounds and jokes. Huey Morgan, frontman of rock and hip hop band Fun Lovin' Criminals, was tipped over the edge during the latest aired Buzzcocks. Morgan, 45, has appeared as a panel member on the show several times before as well as even a guest host once: he should have known the score.

Motörhead Tour Cancelled Due To Lemmy's Poor Health


Lemmy Motorhead

Motörhead have been forced to pull out of French, German and Russian dates due to Lemmy reportedly suffering with haemotoma - a blood disorder where blood collects outside a vessel due after damage. The cancellation was announced on the band's website, "Regretfully, Motörhead announces it has had to cancel its remaining six summer festival appearances. The band hate to let their fans down by missing any shows, but they expect to be back in full force this Fall."

Lemmy's identical condition caused the heavy rock band to call off three dates in June and the gravelly-voiced frontman is, according to drummer Mikkey Dee speaking to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet (reported in The Guardian), "devastated beyond belief" "[Cancelling a tour] has a bigger effect on him than it would anyone else. It's like chopping off a piano player's hands, " Dee added "he's not doing so well right now," sending ripples of concern throughout the 'Ace of Spades' band's massive fanbase who have already had to face the concern brought about by unfounded rumours that the 67-year old had had a defibrillator fitted due to heart problems.

Lemmy Review


Extraordinary
'Lemmy' is the biographical documentary film of one Ian Kilmister, legendary rock'n'roller and leader of Motorhead. Apparently 2 years in the making the film runs the whole gamut charting his early days in North Wales, hitchhiking to The Cavern to see The Beatles through to moving to London to roadie for Jimi Hendrix. From then he joined Hawkwind and later went on to form Motorhead and concludes with Lemmy in his current abode in Los Angeles where he now resides and has done for several years.

Despite making some of the most uncompromising music of the last 30 years, Motorhead for some strange reason, cross all boundaries. This is undoubtedly down to the enduring appeal of Lemmy - a man who's stuck to his guns and done things on his own terms to the point where he has just ended up being accepted.

Which gives credence to the fact that If you spend long enough doing something and which such conviction, people will eventually come round to your way of thinking. As a rock 'n' roll icon his influence has touched almost everyone who is anyone and the most surprising thing of all about this documentary is the sheer breadth of people who have fallen under his influence. The usual rock crowd is to be expected. Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Metallica etc but its appearances of others such as Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash), Marky Ramone (The Ramones) and Billy Bob Thornton that most surprise.

Metal: A Headbanger's Journey Review


Very Good
Everything else gets the documentary treatment. Why not heavy metal, too? Academic Sam Dunn puts metal under the microscope, tracing its origins back to bands like Cream and all the way through and beyond glam metal like Poison and Norwegian Death Metal like Ragnarok. Surprisingly, while Dunn is a devout metalhead, his movie is amazingly coherent and insightful, and he eventually tracks down just about every metal icon -- from Bruce Dickenson to Dee Snider to Rob Zombie to Alice Cooper -- all of whom are engaging on screen. The film is at its best with Snider, who discusses testifying before Congress in the days when metal was under fire for causing, among other things, teen suicides. At its worst is Ronnie James Dio, promoting himself when he's not bloviating about how Gene Simmons owns "the patent to the phrase 'OJ'" -- an absurd conjecture that Dunn should have cut from the movie. The film also takes a bizarre turn near the end, when Dunn basically throws a big "screw you" at everyone who's invested the time in watching his film. But hey, that's metal for ya.

Down And Out With The Dolls Review


Weak
I love chick rock, but there's nothing worse than a girl band that can't play their instruments. Or sing.

This low-budget video production chronicles "the rise and fall" of fictitious Portland band The Paper Dolls, who rise all the way up to getting a $7,500 three-year recording contract from an indie label and fall all the way back to nothing when the band implodes. Wow, what a wild ride!
