    METALLICA and the San Francisco Giants held the sixth annual "Metallica Night" earlier tonight (Monday, April 23) at AT&T Park in San Francisco as the Giants took the field against the Washington Nationals. Members of the band were on hand to start things off right with the national anthem and first pitch, sticking around all night to cheer on the team against the Nationals.A portion of the proceeds from every "Metallica Night" ticket sold will benefit the band's own All Within My Hands foundation.METALLICA frontman James Hetfield said about the yearly event, "We're blessed to be doing this every year and being a part of the vibe here. You know, when times are good, when times are bad, they need the support.”Guitarist Kirk Hammett added: "It's great. It's a lot of fun. It's a good opportunity for us to interact with our home team, hometown, and interact with the people of the Bay Area in San Francisco. And for me, it's a lot of fun to be able to play the national anthem."Hammett told ESPN.com that he feels the version of the national anthem he plays is "really unique and different," and it's great that he can play it for his home team and hometown audience.METALLICA has always kept strong ties to the Bay Area sports scene: the band has also performed before Golden State Warriors basketball games and San Jose Sharks hockey games.

    Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler has recruited Constantine Maroulis of "American Idol" and "Rock Of Ages" fame to front the newly formed ADLER'S APPETITE FEATURING CONSTANTINE MAROULIS. The new group will make its live debut on May 10 at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood before embarking on a 10-date Australian tour, summer festival appearances and a longer fall tour."Of course, GUNS N' ROSES was the soundtrack to my youth," Maroulis told Billboard. "To play with Steven has been the highlight of my career. He's a lovely guy, and his playing on 'Appetite [For Destruction]' was second to none, and that sound he made on it defined that whole generation's sound."Adler stated about the singer: "Let me just fucking tell you something... this guy Constantine, who I call 'Casanova'... he came up to New York and I'm, like, 'Oh my God, I got this great rock and roll singer!' I'm finally working with a real superstar again. I call him 'Casanova' because he's so goddamn sexy. Because he dresses so nice. I wish I was his size so I could double my wardrobe! ... He flew up to New York and within five minutes, I wanted to kick his fuckin' ass! And within 10 minutes, I fell in love with him!"Adler added: "GUNS N' ROSES are the biggest rock band in the fuckin' world now, and since the guys don't want me to play with them and I love these songs and I'm so proud of them ... now I finally have a singer who can compete with the young Axl Rose. Axl is Axl and Casanova is fuckin' Casanova.... That's all I want. Also, his name isn't 'asshole' it's Axl. It sounds like you're saying 'asshole,' but it's Axl."ADLER'S APPETITE's Australian tour will kick off on May 16 in Darwin and will commemorate the 30th anniversary of GUNS N' ROSES' debut album, "Appetite For Destruction". In addition to a performance of the entire LP, the shows will feature a question-and-answer session with Adler and his mother Deanna, who penned the book "Sweet Child Of Mine: How I Lost My Son To Guns N’ Roses".Adler published an autobiography in 2010, titled "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, And Drugs, And Guns N' Roses", in which he delved into his depression, suicide attempts, drug-related heart attacks, and the debilitating stroke that left him with muscular paralysis and permanently slurred speech.Although not part of the reunion that launched in 2016, Adler rejoined GUNS N' ROSES at several shows on the band's "Not In This Lifetime" tour, including three stops on the U.S. leg and one gig in Buenos Aires, Argentina, playing drums on "Out Ta Get Me" and "My Michelle".

    Earlier this month, PAPA ROACH singer Jacoby Shaddix was interviewed by Terrie Carr of WDHA-FM 105.5 FM, the rock music station licensed to Dover and Morristown, New Jersey. You can now watch the chat below.Asked about the success of PAPA ROACH's latest album, 2017's "Crooked Teeth", Jacoby said: "It's been a really good run for us so far on this record. We definitely went in and evolved the sound of the band, kind of put ourselves back in our own lane again stylistically, and challenged our record company, as well as the fans, with some new sounds and new elements and textures. Still, the core of P-ROACH is there, but it's like something new and fresh. But then also kind of going back and bringing some rap back into the music from past records. And it just feels like all things great PAPA ROACH melded into one record that sounds fresh and current. So we're having a good run with it. We've had two No. 1s. Thank you, guys, for banging P-ROACH; it feels good. And now we're out on this headliner [tour with NOTHING MORE and ESCAPE THE FATE] and we're having a lot of sellouts. Like, so far out of the first four shows, three of them have been sold out. So that's awesome.""Crooked Teeth" was released in May 2017 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc was written and recorded in a cramped North Hollywood studio with producers Nicholas "RAS" Furlong and Colin Brittain, with the exception of "Born For Greatness", which saw the band collaborate with writer/producer Jason Evigan (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Zedd, MAROON 5).Over the last 17 months, PAPA ROACH has taken the "Crooked Teeth" experience global — touring extensively throughout Europe, Australia, North America and South America. The band recently wrapped up a successful run with A DAY TO REMEMBER on the "15 Years In The Making Tour" where they played to 100,000 fans over the course of 18 shows.
