Hurrican Irene unleashed its fury across the eastern US seaboard, leaving plenty of damage and destruction in its wake, although not as much as anticipated. One of those affected was rocker Sebastian Bach, whose New Jersey home was destroyed by flooding. Bach’s update to fans on his situation came in at #4.
Aerosmith fans got an update this week from producer Jack Douglas on the status of the band’s new album. The Boston band has been in the studio this summer, and Douglas suggests the new album will be ready for release next Spring…that news is #5 on the HH10 this week.
