Rock Report 01/03/23 – Billy Idol, Slipknot and Modest Mouse !

Billy Idol has been a bonafide star for the past five decades, but now it’s being made official as the “Rebel Yell” hitmaker is set to get his well-deserved spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Idol will be the first star to be honored in 2023, with the ceremony set for Thursday, January 5

Slipknot may soon be lifting the mask on their unreleased album Look Outside Your Window as Shawn “Clown” Crahan revealed in a new interview that it may see the light of day this spring. Specifically, after April 1 when the band’s long-time contract with Roadrunner Records is up.

Modest Mouse’s founding drummer, Jeremiah Green, has died at age 45, according to an announcement shared on the band’s official Facebook page.  The news comes mere days after Green’s stage four cancer diagnosis was revealed to the public.
