Breaking News: high-profile guitar company owner parts ways with namesake company

I’ve received word that a certain guitar company has allegedly just parted ways one of their owner-operators – a man who the company is actually named after. This will be big news when it gets out there and it’ll be very interesting to see what this gentleman does next. After all, this isn’t the first time he’s left a guitar company that he played a high-profile role in…

Rumour: Is Soundwave Revolution cancelled?

UPDATE (1pm Melbourne time, August 9) Stix has deleted the tweets. Huh.

Original story:

Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia has set the Twitters raging with a series of tweets claiming that the Soundwave Revolution festival has been cancelled. There’s no official word on this either way, but I would recommend regularly checking the Soundwave Festival Twitter and Soundwave Revolution¬†Facebook pages and the Twitter account of AJ from Soundwave for the latest. Take it as a rumour for now and I’m sure the Soundwave folks will clarify things soon.

Here are Stix’s tweets in chronological order:

Soundwave revolution is cancelled. I am bummed.

Just got word from our management that the whole festival is cancelled. I hope I’m wrong but I was told it’s official. Anyone hear same?

Maybe we’ll still come out and rock anyway! I’m hoping it can get worked out. We wanna rock u guys in Ozn

If I’m wrong, I’ll only let two chicks suck my dick instead of the normal 5. That’s how serious I am.

Just wait. I ain’t wrong.

Ok everyone. I’m just reporting what I was told. U don’t have 2 believe me. Better yet, don’t believe me and wait for an “official” anncmnt

Ok. Let’s start over fuckers. Don’t panic. Let’s all pretend I didn’t hear from our manager that swr is officially cancelled. U good now?

Aside from Steel Panther, the Soundwave Revolution line-up includes Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Devin Townsend, Alter Bridge, Hole, Machine Head, Hellyeah, The Damned Things and about a bazillion more bands.
