The Used Banned From Canada For 10 Years

6/24/2012 9:21pm EDT
The Used
Kelly Osbourne's former boyfriend Bert McCracken and his band The Used have been banned from performing in Canada for a decade due to the frontman's criminal record.

The group has been forced to scrap a Canadian tour after McCracken was denied entry into the country earlier this month.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "They won't let me in. They said not for 10 years. It's weird, they're like, 'You need to rehabilitate these crimes before you come back to Canada.' I'm like, 'What does that mean?'"

The rocker insists Canadian authorities have blown his past indiscretions out of proportion...

Aaron Gillespie Of The Almost Talks 'Monster Monster'

11/3/2009 10:00am EST
The Almost
The Almost are back with "Monster Monster", the follow-up to their hit 2007 album, "Southern Weather". While Monster is technically their second album, some might view it as being their first true album because "Southern Weather" was written completely by lead singer, Aaron Gillespie - both lyrically and musically. But this time around Gillespie has a band of warrior musicians around him and they worked in collaboration to make the new disc.

Monster is a terrific - fun filled pop record that is reminiscent to the Blink-182 and Sugar Ray-fun sound of the late 90s - except The Almost appe...
