Amy Lee becomes a mum

Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee has given birth to her first child, a boy she's named Jack Lion.

He was delivered on Thursday weighing 7lb 13oz. Lee last night posted a picture of herself and her son in the delivery room on Instagram and said: “Our little cub is here. I have never known the depths of my heart until now. The world just exploded into technicolor.”

Evanescence have been on hiatus since ending the tour in support of their self-titled third album in 2012. Lee sued their former record label for unpaid royalties earlier this year and the band were released from a related contract in March.

She’s been married to husband Josh Hartzler for seven years.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
