As the tigers romped around, one tiger managed to knock the drone to the ground, where it proceeded to claw and chew on the device. The other tigers moved closer, curious to explore the drone.
The drone began to smoke, which caused the tigers to move back. Handlers came to retrieve the mangled machine.

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Video released Tuesday shows a plane piloted by Harrison Ford suddenly and mistakenly flying low over an airliner with 110 people aboard at a Southern California airport.
The 45 seconds of soundless video show the 74-year-old “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” star’s potentially serious mishap at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.
In it, an American Airlines 737 is taxiing slowly. Then Ford’s yellow, single-engine Aviat Husky suddenly zooms in from the right of the frame, flying low over the airliner and casting its shadow down the middle of the bigger plane before landing on the [More]

When AC/DC’s Brian Johnson was order by doctors to stop performing or risk permanent hearing damage, Axl Rose stepped in to take his place. So it only makes sense that Angus Young would repay the favor by showing up at the Guns N’ Roses shows in Australia, thrilling the hometown crowds with versions of Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff in street clothes no less!
Unfortunately the big GNR story today is Guns N’ Roses longtime announcer and guitar tech McBob introducing the band with greetings to Sydney when they were actually in Melbourne. See that story HERE

It’s a damn shame that technical difficulties marred Metallica’s duet with Lady Gaga Sunday night at the Grammys, because before the show the band talked about how much they loved working with her! WATCH the video above to see Lars tell ‘Access Hollywood’, “we were talking earlier about maybe making her a permanent member of METALLICA and being a five-piece from now on, so we’ll see.” WATCH the video below to see Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo sing her praises as well.

Did you know that Van Halen’s landmark debut ‘Van Halen’ was recorded in only 3 weeks and was recorded mostly live! Only 3 songs, “Runnin’ with the Devil”, “Jamie’s Cryin’” and “Ice Cream Man” contain guitar overdubs.
Robert Christgau, known as the Dean of music critics, panned the record while Rolling Stone said, “In three years, Van Halen is going to be fat and self-indulgent and disgusting … follow[ing] Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin right into the toilet. In the meantime, they are likely to be a big deal.”
Rolling Stone was right about one thing, Van Halen became one of the [More]
