  5. Check out these new guitars made from reclaimed wood.  I wonder what they sound like?
  6. This new lawsuit against Led Zeppelin is getting weird.
  7. Is Apple looking to get Jimmy Iovine to run all of the company’s content?
  8. We’re getting down to the wire when it comes to which metal band represents Canada at Wacken.
