Today In Music News: Drugs On Dre's Son; Manson On Trial; Slipknot Frontman Goes Solo

Categories: DFW Music News

Your daily dose of national music news for Monday, January 5, 2009...
  • A coroner found that Dr. Dre's son died of an overdose of heroin and morphine
  • Brian Warner Marilyn Manson wants Trent Reznor and ex-wife Dita Von Teese to testify on his behalf. Manson is being sued by his former drummer for allegedly cheating him out of $20 million dollars. He allegedly spent the drummer's cash on: a stuffed grizzly bear and baboon; Nazi paraphernalia; his wedding to Von Teese; interior decorating; oh, and let's not forget drugs. Sure, all of that sounds very Manson-like. But he also bought the skeleton of a four-year-old Chinese girl? Really? Manson is all about shock, but, the bones of a girl? A bit too weird even for him.
  • Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is ready to release a solo album. If having a side band wasn't a sign of your main band's demise, then a solo record always is. --Lance Lester
