Original GREAT WHITE bassist Lorne Black has died. He appeared on the band’s 1984 self-titled debut, 1986’s “Shot In The Dark” and 1987’s “Once Bitten…”.

Original GREAT WHITE singer Jack Russell, who is currently touring with a version of the band calling itself JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE, has posted the following statement: “It is with great sadness that we have been informed of the passing of Lorne Black yesterday [Friday, September 27]! Our hearts go out to his family, friends and fans.

Lorne was a huge part of the first incarnation of GREAT WHITE! May he rest in peace.”

Added GREAT WHITE guitarist Mark Kendall: “I saw [Lorne‘s] cousin Robert a few months ago and we were in touch. Robert told me Lorne wasn’t too good then.

“I lost Robert‘s number when I changed phones, which bums me out. He used to work for us.

“I loved Lorne and I am truly sad to get this news. I know he has battle demons for along time and I am so sad to hear of his passing.

“RIP, my friend…”

Josh Homme: not a Jay Z fan

Queens Of The Stone Age mainman Josh Homme has laid a verbal smackdown on superstar rapper Jay Z after accusing him of having bands on the same bill as him searched on the way in!

“That guy’s a kook, you know,” Josh revealed to CBC Radio 2, according to MTV. “He has his security frisking the bands on the way in. I just told them, ‘If you open up my bag, I’m not playing, so I guess it’s up to you whether we are playing or not’. The idea they frisked all my guys means you’re in some different place – no-one has ever done that [to me].

Jay Z: Feeling frisky

“He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it. And I thought, that’s not a gift that is a marketing tool. So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall. And you shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should fuck off.”

Fair enough.

Biffy Clyro have posted a response to Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor’s recent mini-rant aimed at both Biffy and Reading Festival‘s organisers for the way NIN’s mainstage slot was set up.

Trent had previously vented his frustrations at Nine Inch Nails being forced to perform a relatively stripped-down set, tweeting before the band’s Reading set: ”Should be an unusual show tonight at Reading…the lying promoter and the band following us (whoever the fuck they are) fucked us on our production.”

Biffy have now reacted to Trent’s somewhat unseemly comments, with frontman Simon Neil responding, ”He basically spat his dummy out. Nine Inch Nails are a huge band and they’ve been headlining loads of festivals everywhere and I think their manager or someone told him they weren’t headlining Reading and Leeds, God forbid, and he decided to take it out on us.”

“He played with us on the Friday night and there was no problem,” he adds, speaking to Faster Louder. “He didn’t care about the Leeds bands obviously and he knew damn fine who we were, so I think he was just being obnoxious.”

Biffy vs Nine Inch Nails, eh? There’s only one way to settle this one….
