An organization aimed at helping tour crews impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic will continue its efforts with another special event.

Roadie Relief is scheduled to hold its second music memorabilia April 14. The auction will feature items, such as a cymbal used at Rage Against The Machine’s last show and signed by the band’s drummer Brad Wilk; a signed skate deck and posters from 311, and Gibson Les Paul guitar used by Bon Jovi guitarist Phil X for sale. The full list of items that will go up for auction is available to see complete with pictures here.

KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer said in a prepared statement, road crews are crucial for the live music industry.

“Before I became the lead guitarist for KISS almost 20 years ago, I worked behind the scenes with Kiss on and off the road,” he said. “I have a unique perspective and appreciation for how hard our crew works day in and day out. I’ve been there.”

311 bassist Aaron “PNUT” Wills offered his own warm words about the work that roadies do for the live music industry.

“I’ve been a touring musician for over twenty eight years and roadies have made it possibly at every step of my career,” said Wills. “Roadies are free spirits who solve a myriad of problems daily while out on the road. I donated cause I love talking to awesome people and I thought it could motivate our audience to dig deep and help our industry get back on its feet.”

Korn Debuts Video For ‘Never Never’

Veteran rock band Korn has released the video for the lead single from its new album, The Paradigm Shift.  The video for the song ‘Never Never’ can be viewed online now at http://www.vevo.com/watch/korn/never-never/US5Z51300396?syndicationid=bb8a16ab-1279-4f17-969b-1dba5eb60eda&shortlink=UaDV41&country=US.  For those that have yet to hear the band’s new single, it boasts an interesting mixed influence of Type O Negative throughout most of the song.  However, there is a slight Nine Inch Nails homage late in the song, too.  The Type O Negative influence can be credited to the work of returning guitarist David “Head” Welch and James Schaffer.  The video sees the band performing atop a CG clock that is turning and exploding all at once.  All the while a woman clad in an entirely black outfit that defies explanation sits in the center of the clock.

In celebration of the band’s tenth full length studio release, Jonathan Davis and company have announced the return of the “Family Values Festival.”  The festival kicks off Thursday, September 26th at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Currently, ten total dates are listed.  The most current tour schedule is listed below.
