STOP SHOUT­ING After can­celling four South Amer­i­can gigs, Aero­smith’s Steven Tyler posted on the band’s web­site: “I HAD TO HAVE A PRO­CE­DURE THAT ONLY MY DOC IN THE STATES COULD PER­FORM.” Get well, soon, Steven, and STOP WRIT­ING IN ALL CAPS.

ANTICHRIST AC­CI­DENT Mar­i­lyn Man­son cut a New York show short last Satur­day after a stage mon­u­ment con­sist­ing of two gi­ant hand­guns fell on him dur­ing “Sweet Dreams”. While Spinal Tap might dis­agree, there are up­sides to per­form­ing in front of props that are in dan­ger of be­ing crushed by a dwarf.

ON THE RIGHT SIDE After Sun­day night’s mass shoot­ing in Las Vegas, Moby, Ari­ana Grande, and Lady Gaga all is­sued new pleas for gun con­trol. Prov­ing there might ac­tu­ally be a hu­man be­ing some­where deep in­side, Ted Nu­gent kept his mouth shut.

LOUD SILENCE Mean­while, Jason Aldean—who was on­stage when the car­nage be­gan—re­leased a state­ment that said plenty about stop­ping “hate”, but fuck-all about guns. Learn from coun­try leg­end Roseanne Cash and take an ac­tual stand, bro.
