Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
Van Halen has postponed some summer dates and the reason has yet to be revealed. Dates beyond June 26th will be put off. A source tells Rolling Stone Magazine that the band hates each other and are fighting non-stop. Figures.
Not addressing Ward
“There are two sides to every story.” That’s all that Black Sabbath could say about Bill Ward’s criticism of the band. Ward, one of the founding members, recently revealed that he would not be performing with the band during their reunion. He claims that the band has not presented him with a fair contract. The band won’t really address the Ward issue instead focusing on the progress that’s been made during Tony Iommi’s cancer treatment. They have said that they are using a substitute drummer. But again, they won’t say anything about the Ward deal. Ward should understand that … uh … it’s Black Sabbath. Not a labor union. I doubt conducting a strike is gonna do anything as the world’s best drummers would be more than willing to take time out of their year to tour with Sabbath.

Told you yesterday about Jack White trying to get a ridiculous Guinness World Record for the shortest concert—Guinness told MTV News that The White Stripes’ 2009 one-note concert was in the 2009 book. That lead to other bands trying to beat the record, which quite frankly is just silly. Then it became murky as to what a concert was. Hey Guinness … I’ve got a one-note concert lined up in the bathroom. The record keepers closed the category.
