  VOCALIST FOR THE SLOT STABBED BY ATTACKER DURING SIGNING SESSION
20 April 2014





In an appalling act of violence, Dariya "Nookie" Stavrovich, the vocalist for Russian Metal band The Slot was stabbed in the neck several times at an album signing session on April 18th in St Petersburg.

It is not known if the attack was an act of Hate Crime, or another motive, and the knife-wielder was apprehended on site.

It appears that Nookie is now stable in hospital, and thoughts go out to her and the band members. Attacks and threats of violence can never be justified and it is hoped that swift action will be taken on this intolerable situation.

A statement on the band's Facebook page broke the news:

"Today, on the 18th of April, before The SLOT's signing session, an armed attack was made on the members of the band near the cafe "Stoker" in St. Peterburg.

The malefactor armed with a knife, tried to attract attention of the members of the band and to start a conversation with them. After that he stabbed Nookie (Dariya Stavrovich) several times in her neck.
Fortunately she was able to protect herself from some of the hits with her hands.

The offender was neutralized and was caught red-handed. After that he was followed to police Department.

After Nookie was given first aid by Cache, she was immediately rushed to the hospital. The hospital described her general condition as moderately grave.

Fortunately at the present moment there is no threat to Nookie's life and she is staying at the Mariinskaya hospital.

Let's wish her a speedy and painless recovery!"

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
