Stuff that pops into my head. Innit.

World goes mad. Official

Some of you might remember Pantera, the seminal metal band from Texas who shot to (relative) fame when they released Cowboys From Hell in 1989, and gained even more notoriety when former guitarist Dimebag Darrell was shot onstage in 2004.

"WTF is he on about now?"

I'll tell you what I'm on about, the drummer from Pantera -Dimebags brother, Vinnie- has released a cookbook. Yes, a cookbook.

"The heavy metal drummer will share his favourite recipes with fans in ‘Drumming Up An Appetite With Vinnie Paul’.
The proud Texan boasts the book will be packed with tips and advice about how to perfect simple dishes from his home state.
He said, "I love cooking fajitas and it's not a difficult thing to do, but a lot of people burn the chicken."
And he'll even reveal all about his favourite dish. "I take fresh jalapenos (peppers), put cream cheese on them, maybe a little fajita seasoning, cheddar cheese on top and the key ingredient, which I learned in Australia, is barbecue sauce. Don't put hot sauce on it, just a little barbecue sauce on them. Put them on the grill."
Paul was encouraged to do more with his culinary skills by friends who regularly attend his parties"

What's next, Gardening with Jimmy Page, or Corey Taylor's Barbecue Bible?

Here's Vinnie yesterday, shortly after whipping up a Broccoli and Cheese Souffle

Glenn Danzig? Is he still alive?

I'm holding out for Tony Iommi's Topiary guide.
