Someone's going to rock out with their baby blocks out!
A big hearty congratulations to Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and Evis Xheneti who have announced they are expecting a child!
Here's what Xheneti said:
"We are so utterly elated to announce that we are expecting our first child due late this fall. We have been dying to share this news with everyone.”
This is the couple's first (but hopefully not last) child together.
They expect the baby to rock-and-roll on out in November of 2012.
Go see the soon-to-be-dad perform with Korn this summer!

You cannot deny that he is committed to this cause!
Former Rage Against the Machine guitarist and Nightwachman Tom Morello was originally expected to perform at the Swan Dive in Austin for SXSW last night, but managed to turn his set into a full-blown Occupy gathering, which he organized in conjunction with Occupy Austin - and even after the police shut him down, he continued on!
Morello started his set for SXSW badge holders, but then informed them that a "people's stage" had been erected to broadcast the show on the street for the protestors and general public!
At last call, he then announced:

Bob Weston, a once guitarist and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac has DIED! So SAD!!
The 64 year old lived alone. Suspicion was raised when he never showed up to work on a new album with Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor.
So they called the cops to investigate, and sure enough, he was found dead in his home.
His brother mourns:

At 66-years-old, John Fogerty is still going strong!
The Creedence Clearwater Revival guitarist, who ranks #40 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists, went for a jog near his El Lay home on Tuesday.
He even played some air guitar for the paparazzi snapping photographs of him! Ha! What a cool dude!
We're glad he's staying healthy as he continues his transition from rock star to senior citizen.

Very well deserved!
Rolling Stone has released a new list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and the legendary Jimi Hendrix landed the #1 spot on the list!
Here's what Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello had to say about it:
"His playing was effortless. There's not one minute of his recorded career that feels like he's working hard at it — it feels like it's all flowing through him."
We totally agree, and we're also feeling pret-ty good about the runners up, which include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck!
Who do U think is the greatest guitarist of all time???
