News Round-Up: Superjoint Recording New Album, GNR Getting Insane Money for Reunion Shows, Stuck Mojo Split with Bonz (Again) and More


Good morning. It’s 45 degrees and cloudy here in NYC on this Wednesday, December 30th. How’s the weather wherever you are?

Here are some stories that have developed in the world of metal over the past 24 hours:

  • Skid Row have parted ways with vocalist Tony Harnell, who had just joined the band this past May. He had replaced Johnny Solinger, who’d been the band’s frontman for the past fifteen years after Sebastian Bach’s departure. It’s not likely that news of any singer in Skid Row who isn’t Sebastian Bach will affect their draw much, but you never know.
  • Stuck Mojo have already parted ways with vocalist Bonz and bassist Corey Lowery — the original lineup — just a year after playing some successful reunion shows. For Lowery’s part, he’s probably just too busy with new band Saint Asonia, but Bonz’s history with guitarist/mastermind Rich Ward has always been rocky. A new album has already been recorded with two new members and is expected out in 2016.
  • A man in Madison, Wisconsin lost it when the bartender changed the music from Black Sabbath to something Christmas-themed, throwing a bottle of beer at her head, screaming expletives, damaging property and storming out the door after being restrained by other patrons. Shocker of all shockers: the man was eventually arrested.
