KISS will release their 20th studio album, “Monster,” on October 16 and the band revealed the cover for the project, which was unveiled piece-by-piece over the course of the past week. Using the group’s recently launched “Monster Hunt” Facebook app, they’ve been exposing portions of the image at various web sites around the Internet so that fans could put it together themselves. And here’s what it’s going to look like!
A new Ronnie James Dio box set, “Dio: The Singles Collection,” is due August 31st. “Dio: The Singles Collection” compiles a box of the band’s classic singles in replicas of the original release, along with a DVD featuring all of the videos. The 14 CDs include 48 songs from 14 previous singles, while the DVD presents 12 music videos. The package comes with a reprint of a UK tour poster and Dio family tree (subject to change), as well as 32-page complete discography.
What do Katie Couric, Gloria Estefan, Jamie Lee Curits and Dennis Rodman all have in common? If you said “They’ve all been photographed in a wedding dress!” … you’re correct. But we also would have accepted they have all written children’s books. That’s right…the NBA Hall of Famer and occasional crossdresser is releasing his own book for kids called “Dennis The Wild Bull” set to be released sometime later this year. Dennis and his people are tight-lipped about the premise, but the book’s website says it will “convey good lessons to children based on Dennis’ own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child.” Dennis recently reconnected with his father, and we’re told he’s been re-motivated to strengthen his relationship with his own children and believes this book will help the process. And they all lived happily ever after…hopefully.
