"This is a celebration tour. It's party time!  The ROCK THIS COUNTRY tour will have a different spirit than my past tours," said Twain. "It's a Shania they've never seen before.  A lot of years have gone by and I've got a lot more to share."

Shania has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries with over 75 million albums sold, and 17 top 10 singles.

Shoot The J! Photo Of PRINCE From His Junior High Basketball Team Goes Viral!

Apparently just posting the photo to our Instagram account wasn't enough. A photo of PRINCE from his Junior High Basketball team has went viral in a short amount of time.

"Prince was an excellent player," basketball coach Richard Robinson told the Star Tribune. But apparently, Prince wasn't too pleased being the sixth or seventh man, and wanted to be on the starting lineup: "He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times." He sure showed those starting players, huh?

So for those that doubted the Chappelle skit, now you know better!-DocFB

Metallica To Celebrate Record Store Day…With A Limited Edition Cassette

Metallica Record Store Day Cassette

In celebration of Record Store Day, on April 18th, Metallica will release No Life 'til Leather as a limited edition cassette.

The seven tracks were recorded in 1982 in Tustin, CA by the band's original lineup of James Hetfield: lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Lars Ulrich: drums, Dave Mustaine: lead guitar, and Ron McGovney: bass.

Metallica Record Store Day Cassette

Straight from the archives, the original source material has been re-mastered to maximize the sound potential for 2015 without altering the original mixes. No Life 'til Leather will be available for purchase at your favorite local record store and on Metallica.Com. The collection has never been available commercially until now.

A note from Metallica:

This year we decided to celebrate Record Store Day with our friends at independent retail by taking a huge leap back in time to our humble beginnings with that little rectangle of plastic known as the "demo tape."  In 1982 we recorded seven songs that became our initial calling card known as No Life 'til Leather and it led us to our first record deal . . . the rest, as you some of you may know, is history!  We hope you enjoy this little walk down memory lane with us and that you will continue to join us in supporting independent record stores around the world.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Look for expanded versions coming on CD, vinyl and a collector's set sometime this summer.
