Uproar, Rumors, Jags, Marlins, Life.
The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Tour made its impact on Friday, August 24th as 3 stages and hundreds of people gathered to witness some of the true greats in today's hard rock music. I attended specifically for In This Moment, Fozzy, POD, Staind & Godsmack. The headlining act, Shinedown, couldn't have paid me enough money to stick around for their display of generic, disposable formula of radio rock. How they got the headlining slot over Godsmack is beyond me.
LimpBizkit has NOT broken up. After a dispute between the band and DJ Lethal, the band reached the decision to part ways with long time member, DJ Lethal. Fred Durst & Wes Borland have spoken out against Lethal and his unwelcome substance abuse claiming that he needs help but the door will not be open to a return as it was to drummer, John Otto, in 2005. The band is currently working on 2 new albums. One, a full legnth studio album entitled Stampede of the Disco Elephants and the other, the follow up EP to 2005's mix reviewed, The Unquestionable Truth Part 2. Also in the works is a full US tour in support of SOTDE. NME reported rumors of the breakup in late August, rumors were quickly put to rest by Fred & Wes on their personal Twitter accounts.
Jacksonville Jaguars football is right around the corner, after finishing 3-1 in pre season the holdout for running back Maurice Jones Drew has come to an end without reaching a new deal he was seeking. Drew reported to camp today but won't be able to practice until Wednesday when The Jaguars run their gameplan for the Sunday opener in Minnesota. Running Back, Rashad Jennings, has been named the starter for the opener, while MJD could still receive some play time possibly in red zone situations.
As for the Miami Marlins, they've fallen just under 20 games out of first place. The season is over, injuries and a fire sale in late July contributed to this mess of a season. The off season could prove to be a year to re-build what they thought was going to be a post season/championship year.
This is my life.
