Rolling Stone Magazine

When Dave Grohl started playing with Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins needed a way to keep busy, so he teamed up with longtime friends Wiley Hodgden and Mick Murphy for the cover band Chevy Metal. Started, in Hawkins' words, "as a goof," Chevy Metal has evolved to become first a regular live act, and now, Hawkins and his Chevy Metal mates have written and recorded new material as the Birds of Satan, a new project that features a nine and a half-minute title track co-written with Grohl and Murphy.

Tairrie B #4 Female Metal Singers!

Look who just got named #4 in the list of Top 10 Female Metal Singers in OC Weekly today just under Dinah Cancer of 45 Grave(#3), Doro Pesch of Doro & Warlock (#2) and the infamous Wendy O Williams of The Plasmatics (#1).

In great company!

"Unlike punk rock, for some reason the world of heavy metal has not always been the most accepting of women, unless they are scantily clad or topless dancing in the background. However, this post aims to prove to all of the closed minded chauvinists that women can rock just as hard as men, if not harder. The rise of women among metal and hard rock music continues on to our delight, despite the fact that many females still face an uphill battle in a mostly male dominated genre. But, that didn't stop some of the front women listed below from become pioneering figures in deathrock, power metal, metalcore,and even death metal. We now present our list of the Top 10 Female Metal Singers." - Alex Distefano

4. Tairrie B. (My Ruin)
Before she was the front woman for Southern-tinged LA-based rockers My Ruin, Tairrie B.'s career can be traced back to 1990, when she recorded a rap album for Eazy-E, entitled The Power of a Woman. Shortly after this album, she decided to pursue a different sound, and formed the alternative metal band Manhole, which later morphed into the darker Tura Satana, and eventually My Ruin, in 1999. Today, My Ruin's music is a head banger friendly blend Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Type O Negative and Corrosion of Conformity with whiskey, weed, aggression and religious themes and imagery. The band also features Tairrie's husband and musical partner, guitar virtuoso Mick Murphy. Tairrie has always had an intense voice, which just screamed for metal, reminiscent of a female Phil Anselmo mixed with Bon Scott. Tairrie's confrontational lyrics often attack hypocrisy, sexism and misogyny, while remaining personal, and sometimes religious in nature.
