Kerrang! (UK) - - 2018 Review -

■ AN­DREW WK paid a speed­ing ticket for Bri­tish fan Luke Mitchell, who was pulled over by the po­lice while crank­ing out the Party King’s new sin­gle Mu­sic Is Worth Liv­ing For. “I was re­spon­si­ble for the sonic party power that caused you to speed,” said An­drew. What a gent, although a bit of free ad­vice, Mr WK: it’s prob­a­bly best not to make a habit out of that sort of thing. ■ One fan in Cal­i­for­nia dis­cov­ered that if you try to get a selfie with CON­VERGE while they play, it will be awk­ward. To whit, the band aban­doned a song and fell into con­temp­tu­ous si­lence dur­ing said at­tempted on­stage shoot. We’ve yet to see the re­sult­ing pic of JA­COB BANNON’S be­mused gri­mace, but you can watch the video on Youtube to see four very unim­pressed

hard­core faces. ■ Be­cause ev­ery­one needs to make a few beans on the side to sup­ple­ment their in­come, IRON MAIDEN drum­mer NICKO MCBRAIN opened his very own drum shop, Drum One, in Manch­ester. “It is a de­par­ture from my usual day job, but nev­er­the­less it is one that I am ready to take on,” he said. Sadly, Nicko isn’t work­ing the till, but then, see­ing as he lives in Florida, that’d be a hell of a com­mute.
