Diamond Dave Reaches His Sapphire Milestone And Other Amazing Stories

"ANA'S" SONG SOUNDS LIKE GOODBYE
Aussie rockers Silverchair have parted ways with Sony Music. Manager John Watson posted a statementon the band's official site: "Silverchair has enjoyed a very successful relationship with Sony Music over the last six years, but that relationship has now run its course. The company was unable to give the band the kind of future controls over their music which other labels are offering so it was simply time to move on. Silverchair and myself are very excited about the great new opportunities which are being presented to the band." Silverchair is currently gearing up for the Rock In Rio festival in January. Between rehearsals, band members are practicing the phrase, "Do you want vegemite with that kangaroo burger?"

AND SOME THOUGHT "WOODSTOCK" WAS A STUPID NAME
System Of A Down
will headline "Souls- A Benefit For Recognition Of The Armenian Genocide To Stop Crimes Against Humanity." The event will take place Saturday, November 4, at the Palace in Hollywood, CA. Proceeds will go to the Armenian National Committee Of America, whose aim is to recognize the genocide of Armenians in Turkey during World War I. The cause has special meaning to SOAD, whose members are all of Armenian descent. Said vocalist Serj Tankain: "Had the Armenian Genocide been deemed a crime against humanity in the books after WWI, Hitler might not have thought he could get away with the Jewish Holocaust." While the event is being sponsored by LA's KROQ radio station, their morning show's incredibly unfunny Armenian Comedian will not be performing.

CRAZY FROM THE GERITOL
The calendar may say "October," but it's really Roth-tober. Tuesday (10/10) marks the 45th birthday of one of rock & roll's most colorful performers, David Lee Roth. The sex-crazed former Van Halen singer will reportedly celebrate at Club Dave, his Pasadena, CA, party pad by trying to squeeze his ass into an old pair of red leather pants, watching a "Golden Girls" marathon and renewing hismembership inthe "Hair Club For Men."

SPARING THE ROD
Rod Stewart's
new album, and first for Atlantic, "Human,"originally slated for release Nov. 14, has been rescheduled for February 13, 2001. Stewart underwent successful thyroid surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. last May and while his vocal cords were unaffected by the procedure, the required healing has made it necessary for Stewart to delay the completion of the final two vocal tracks. "I'm nearly all healed up, but one cannot rush Mother Nature," said Stewart. "The spirit is willing and the voice is just about there. I'm enormously pleased to be with Atlantic Records, and I think the new release date is perfect--especially since I've always been particularly fond of St. Valentine's Day myself. And it gives me more time to drink beer, play soccer and spike my hair." Added Atlantic Group Co-Chairman/Co-CEO Val Azzoli: "I'm thrilled to welcome Rod Stewart into the Atlantic family. Great things are always worth waiting for, and I am happy to say that rod is beginning his relationship with us with what we all beleive is his best work in years. Now, if only he'd introduce me to Rachel Hunter."
