Metallica’s music video includes performance at Ontario Arena

Not only was Metallica a big draw when they came to Ontario late last year, but now they’ve cemented that night in history by including clips of their performance in a music video. I found the information below and I thought people would be interested to know.

This is from :
“METALLICA‘s video for the song “Broken, Beat And Scarred” can be viewed below. The performance clip was shot by METALLICA‘s longtime friend and collaborator, famed video director Wayne Isham, on December 13, 2008 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California and December 12, 2008 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.”

Outtakes from Michael Jackson story

“As far as Michael Jackson’s influence on music today, I believe it reached far and wide, especially with the current popularity of dance, dance rock, DJ, indie, and whatnot.

Recent Glass House bands such as Passion Pit, The Juan MacLean, and even the Honor Society seems to owe something to Michael Jackson’s pop sensibility.

I just bought the remastered Bad CD last month. It’s strange to think of someone like this with such constant controversy to suddenly be gone, along with the answers to quite a few questions. Either way, he will be missed greatly in the music community.”

Jonathan Halperin, talent booker for The Glass House in Pomona


“He was a phenomenal talent. He was an icon.”

Richard Barnes, Folk Music Center employee in Claremont.

Barnes said employees in the center were talking about Jackson when our reporter Neil Nisperos went to see if anyone would talk to him.

Love Grenades worth drive to Shamrocks in Chino Hills

29087-love grenades singer-thumb-200x300-29086.jpg

Los Angeles-based Love Grenades (with singer Elizabeth Wight shown here) made a strong impression Saturday night in Chino Hills at Shamrocks with their electro pop/Italo disco/punk/’80s sound.

The lead singer Wight was a ball of energy who dressed in a flashy black top with skin-tight pants who kept the music moving with her constant dancing, walking toward audience members and tremendous singing skills.

The group performed catchy songs like “Tigers In The Fire,” where Elizabeth Wight’s singing skills really shone through. Corey Hunter and Golden were also strong on the guitars and the drums.

An entertaining but somewhat inebriated woman who sat next to me really danced a storm during this song and many of the others. After the show Wight said the woman was an inspiration because of her enthusiasm.

“Off To Sea” features the weird cowbell sound and is also catchy and the Sam Sparro remix of “Young Lovers.” I think they also played the regular mix of “Young Lovers” as the last song if I’m not mistaken.

The one slight complaint I had was the group performed at roughly 12:30 a.m. June 14 instead of an advertised 10 p.m. June 13 but was worth it.

Local band joins Vans Warped Tour

Inland Empire’s Fiasco! has been added to the list of bands performing at this year’s Vans Warped Tour. The tour will kick off June 26 at the Fairplex.
I got a call earlier this week from Ontario resident Dorothy Durston, the mother of bandmember Daniel Durston with the news.
A couple of weeks ago the band was performing at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles when they got the invitation, Dorothy said.
The trio, Durston; Brandon Forsberg and Brent Schneiders of Rancho Cucamonga met about six years ago in a battle of the bands event. They were on different bands at the time, Dorothy tells me.
