There has been some chatter on many different gear forums claiming that most of the Marshall 4x12 cabinets in Slayer guitarist Kerry King’s wall of amps are empty, and only one or two of the cabinets actually work.

Misha Mansoor is definitely an eclectic player. His style is difficult to pin down, drawing on a wide variety of influences, but also filled with his own original approach to music.

Jordan Rudess, keyboardist for Dream Theater, announced some important updates for his music apps, Samplewiz, Morphwiz and Geo Synthesizer.
