Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
Celebrity surgery, on this Music Minute … however, that sounds like a great cable show that MTV or VH1 should pick up … Anyways, Travis Barker went under the knife for an emergency tonsillectomy. It’s gonna take a few weeks for him to recover, but he got to his tonsils before they caused serious problems. The Blink 182 drummer has probably seen his fair share of hospitals and recovery centers in the past few years as he survived a tragic plane crash back in 2008 that led to death of four people. Blink 182 plans to be back on the road in Europe this June.
American Idol performance
I’m not really interested, but you may be … Aerosmith will perform on the finale of “American Idol.” Guitarist Joe Perry tells Rolling Stone that the band will debut a new single on the episode. Now, that I’m interested in. The show, not so much. This does seem to be a big turnaround for the band as there was a bunch of criticism from Perry and others when Steven Tyler took the judge job. Perry now says their beef wasn’t with Tyler getting the job but rather with how the rest of the band found out about it. When the news came down that Tyler would be a judge, the band was on tour and Tyler neglected to notify them. That’s not how you treat your bros, yo.
Oh, and continuing with their theme of stupid-ass album names, Limp Bizkit’s forthcoming attempt has been named Stampede Of The Disco Elephants. Dear lord.
