WQLZ Music Minute

Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop


Canceled show


Avenged Sevenfold had to call off a show in Indonesia Tuesday (not that you were planning on going) because the stage they were set to take was … well … let’s just say “unsafe.” It’s Indonesia, after all. The band posted to their site that the stage had defects and they didn’t want to put themselves, their crew or their fans in harms way. There were rumors that the band canceled the show because of security concerns but the band denies that.

Spider bite


In other live performance shakeups--Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman says he’s still not ready to take the stage after being bit by a spider nearly a year ago. He says he is still recovering from that bite that damn near took his arm and he actually ended up in a medically induced coma. He’s had skin grafts and has had to relearn to walk. At least he’s back playing the guitar … just not on stage. In the meantime, Gary Holt is filling in for Hanneman. Being arachnophobic, I find this very difficult to report.


On the side


It’s called a retirement plan and one rocker found the perfect fit. Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson says he is starting up an airplane repair business. So if you every want to get your plane fixed and talk shop, hit up Cardiff Aviation Ltd. in the United Kingdom.
