Chuck Schuldiner Hospitalized

An update on Chuck Schuldiner has been issued by way of Jane Schuldiner, Chuck's mother:

Dear fans and friends, I want to tell you that Chuck has been very ill for three weeks in the hospital with pneumonia, but is now on the road to recovery and will hopefully be home soon. While it was unexpected, when a person is undergoing chemotherapy, a low immune system keeps that person vulnerable to other illnesses. That is why I have not answered Chuck's email for some time, I am there with him. I will keep Yvonne posted with how he is doing. Sincerely, Jane Schuldiner

Mayorga Remains With Medication

I thought it was a little presumptuous to think Roy Mayorga had left Medication after he instisted that he had not. Although he’s officially back with Soulfly, apparently this is only temporary for the band’s third album, which is currently being produced by Max Cavalera. Mayorga, though, remains a full time member of Medication, reports TotalRock.

Ringtones Under Fire

"Ring tones are the new Napster" is the title of an article on ZDNet UK about how the RIAA has set its sites on companies selling unlicensed ringtones. Because these companies do big business over in Europe and Asia, I entirely agree with the RIAA on their actions for once. I also noticed a larger percent of the free ringtone sites disappeared in favor or pay for ringtone sites.

If you know of a good FREE ringtone site, let me know, as I'm always looking for cool rings for my Ericsson. I obviously do not disagree with trading of these tunes, but it's wrong to make money by selling alternative versions of an artists' work without their permission and without compensating them.

Slayer Wins Lawsuit

A San Luis Obispo (California) Superior Court judge threw out on Monday a lawsuit accusing SLAYER, Columbia Records and other industry entities of marketing and distributing music that inspired three boys to murder 15-year-old Elyse Pahler in 1995. However, the precedent-setting case appears to be far from over, as the plaintiff's lawyer said he intends to file an appeal. According to an MTV News report, Judge E. Jeffrey Burke didn't consider SLAYER's music obscene, indecent or directly harmful to minors, so the marketing of such music to minors was therefore ruled to be legal.

MP3.com Splits

MP3.com is creating a new division, dubbed MP3 Technologies, which will provide the technology for MP3.com and other Web sites, including the forthcoming Pressplay online subscription service. The Mp3.com web site will still will still give customers a place to listen to music, however.

Slayer Downs Nu Metal

SLAYER frontman Tom Araya was quoted in the October 12th edition of the Swedish daily newspaper Aftonbladet as saying that he's always been afraid to fly and that the terrorist attack on September 11th has increased this fear. SLAYER were booked to fly to Europe on Sept 11th, but had to reschedule the flight. Tom was still prepared to fly because the band's first reaction was to never let the fans down. When asked if PANTERA, who in a recent Swedish interview claimed that they're not afraid of anyone, aren't chickens for not daring to fly to Europe, Araya says: More...

WASHINGTON -- Look out, music pirates: The recording industry wants the right to hack into your computer and delete your stolen MP3s.
