Here’s a sampling of some interesting stuff going on in the world of metal:

* Anyone who watched the second season of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab is quite familiar with former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s drug problems.  That man has done a lottttt of drugs.  So in true rockstar fashion, it makes sense that Adler would release a book detailing his experiences with those drugs.  Titled My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses, Adler’s tell-all is scheduled to be released on June 22.

* Drummer Will Hunt has been chosen to replace Craig Nunenmacher in Black Label Society.  Hunt has most recently worked with Evanescence and Dark New Day.  He likely will continue to pull double duty with Evanescence and BLS.

* Slash recently collaborated with Fergie on a cover of GNR’s “Paradise City” to be included as a bonus track on Slash’s upcoming solo album.  I guess he got a lot of flack for it, so he took to Twitter to defend Fergie’s performance (which can be heard HERE).  He said: “Until now, not too many people have heard Fergie sing rock &  roll but she sings it better (than) most dudes I know. She’s a screamer at heart.”  He then said in an interview that Fergie has talked about wanting to make a rock record outside of the Black Eyed Peas and that he would like to work with her on it.  I actually think Fergie could pull that off, but maybe I’m in the minority in that belief.  There’s no question that she has a really strong voice tailored to dirtier rock and roll as opposed to having her voice drowned in computer effects like on “Boom Boom Pow.”  I’d be at least interested to hear more rock songs from her.

* 10 Years will be entering the studio soon to start work on their third album, Feeding the Wolves.

* Nonpoint have debuted their new song “Miracle.”  Listen to it HERE.

* Ray Davies of The Kinks will be releasing a collection of new versions of old songs.  He said that he would like to talk with Metallica about collaborating on a song.  If you remember, Davies joined Metallica onstage at the 25th Anniversary of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame where they performed “You Really Got Me” and “All Day And All Of The Night.”
