Twiggy is among the musicians slated to join Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme on the Desert Sessions Volume 9-10 when recording begins in February at Rancho De La Luna Studios. Others tentatively slated to appear include Dean Ween and P.J. Harvey, and no doubt some of the regulars from previous sessions will also make appearances, i.e. Mark Lanegan, Dave Catching, Chris Goss and Brant Bjork. The album is likely to be released on Mike Patton’s (ex-Faith No More) Ipecac label rather than RekordsRekords, the home of Desert Sessions Volume 7-8. In other news, while it is not official, negotiations are underway for Camp Freddy to submit their live performance of "Paranoid" -- during which Twiggy joined them on guitar -- to the FreeNet Records 2002 free sampler. For more information, visit the FreeNet website here.

Tracking for Twiggy's demo with Chris Goss and Zach Hill was reportedly completed as of late last week at Rancho De La Luna studios. Also, another photo taken of Twiggy at Thursday night's Smirnoff party has been added to the Candid page. Click here to view.

Twiggy was among those in attendance last night when Smirnoff Ice Triple Black hosted a 1980's style roller skate holiday party at the Moonlight Rollerway in Los Angeles. A photo from the event has been added to the Candid gallery and can be seen here.

For those who haven't seen it, the photo that went along with last week's Kerrang! interview has been added to the Candid/Miscellaneous gallery and can be viewed here. It is from the Nintendo Goes Platinum party back in October and is similar (or the same) as another photo taken at that event and featured on the page, but this is a much larger version of that photo.

Here are more details on the Camp Freddy show to be held on December 16th. The venue is the Henry Fonda Theater at 6126 Hollywood Blvd. Line ups will start at 3 p.m. (no line ups will be allowed before this time), with the doors opening at 9 p.m. and the band hitting the stage at 10. Again, there is no guarantee that Twiggy will be a part of this show, but nonetheless, if you are in SoCal it might be worth checking out anyway since it doesn't cost anything to those lucky enough (the first 400 in line) to get in. Also, please note that this is a 21 and over show.

The Kerrang! article is now up and can be read here. I'm very excited for what the future holds for Twiggy and I think you all will be too after reading this. A very special thanks to "lindalou" for her efforts in scanning this and getting it to me so quickly!

Twiggy has finally broken his silence regarding his split with Marilyn Manson. Speaking to Kerrang!, Twiggy says "If I had said something when the bomb dropped it would have been too emotional so I chose to keep my mouth shut and not say anything I might have regretted. But really there was no big drama. We just grew apart in different directions and we both decided we wanted to do different things. We were together for so many years without any waves, and something was bound to happen eventually. We had a pretty successful run." Twiggy insists that he and Manson are still friends. "We might not be sending each other Christmas cards this year, but we spoke a few weeks ago. I'll be interested in hearing his new album." The full story, exclusively detailing Twiggy's future plans, will appear in the new issue of Kerrang! available tomorrow at newsstands in the UK. For those not able to get the magazine, I hope to have the article transcribed and up on the Press page sometime by the end of the day tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the promised year-end public show by Camp Freddy has been announced and will be taking place in Hollywood, CA on Monday, December 16th. The show will be free and approximately 400 fans will be allowed in along with the usual guest list typical of an LA show. Details as to venue and how to get in will be announced on December 12th. There are no indications at this time as to whether or not Twiggy will participate in this particular performance, but since it doesn't cost anything, it's certainly worth a try to get in.

Twiggy's silver dress, worn by him in photo shoots for Mechanical Animals and designed by Terri King, is now up for sale over at mansonmuseum.com. It can be found on the Trade Page and is going for $750.

Camp Freddy is auctioning off a drumhead signed on the night of the October 30th gig by the band and most of the guests who appeared with them. Twiggy has signed it as well as Slash, Casey Chaos, Perry Farrell and Billy Duffy, among others. All proceeds will be donated to charity to help the homeless. Go here to check it out and good luck to anyone bidding. Camp Freddy will be playing at the opening of the Sapphire Gentlemen's Club in Las Vegas on Friday, December 13th, but there are no details as to which guests, if any, will be appearing with them. A show open to the public, to happen before the end of the year, is expected to be announced shortly.

It was reported today that Twiggy has teamed up with Masters of Reality/Queens of the Stone Age/Kyuss producer and collaborator Chris Goss to form a new project to be called Snowballs. Goss has also worked with artists such as the Screaming Trees and the Cult's Ian Astbury. Although the complete lineup of the band has yet to be chosen, Twiggy and Goss have already gotten started on the songwriting process. More info as it becomes available. For more information on Masters of Reality and Chris Goss, a good place to start is here.

Many have been asking who and/or what is Camp Freddy since Twiggy's guest appearance with them on Wednesday night. For anyone wanting further information on who they are, their history and background, past shows, etc., go to the Camp Freddy Official Website at www.billymorrison.net/cf.

Expect to see a video for the soundtrack single "Tainted Love" in the near future. Marilyn Manson will reportedly film the video in the next few weeks in Los Angeles. Hopefully this will include appearances by the band members as well as the man himself.

Seven more photos from the GGG/Ozzfest tours can now be found on the Live photos page.

October 21, 2001

Twiggy returns as the special guest DJ at the grand re-opening of Club Life On Mars on Friday, November 9th. Admission is $10 and the club is located at 6655 Santa Monica Blvd. (at Las Palmas) in Hollywood. For more information, visit their official website at http://clublifeonmars.com.

Marilyn Manson has covered Soft Cell's 1980's hit, "Tainted Love", which will be the single from the soundtrack of the film "Not Another Teen Movie", which hits theatres sometime in November. The single is due to be released in early November. Meanwhile, the music composed by the band for the "From Hell" soundtrack will not be used because, according to the Official Marilyn Manson website, "no agreement could be reached". The only Manson music that will appear on the soundtrack is a remix of "The Nobodies".

The set list for the October 8, 2001 Los Angeles show, due to be released as a DVD in early 2002 (and reportedly also to be shown on Pay Per View on New Year's Eve) is as follows:

Irresponsible Hate Anthem
The Reflecting God
Great Big White World
Disposable Teens
The Fight Song
The Nobodies
Rock is Dead
The Dope Show
Cruci-Fiction in Space
Sweet Dreams (are made of this)
The Love Song
The Death Song
Antichrist Superstar

The Gear page has been updated and two more GGG/Ozzfest shots have been added to the Live photos page.

I now feel confident in saying that it's a no-go as far as Manson joining the Ozzy/Rob Zombie tour. The third band has just been announced and it's NOT Manson (for anyone who is interested, it's Soil). More than likely Manson will want to concentrate on making new music after next week's LA show, which is just as well -- perhaps this means not too long a wait for the next album, as well as for Manson to do his own headlining tour.
