Tyler Ducks Out of Idol, Free Blythe Gets Louder & Here's To Geritol

The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station

Tyler ducks out of Idol


He quits! The long saga of Steven Tyler on "American Idol" is over … finally. After all the crap that was stirred up when he joined up with the show, Aerosmith can now put this chapter of the band behind them. Tyler said that "Idol" was his mistress. We think of it as the red-headed step child that no one wants to take care of but for some reason keeps getting support (no offense meant for red-headed step children). But this is just another way for the band to get their new album in the forefront. Music From Another Dimension is expected out in November. Plus the band’s on tour, so doing a TV show makes it a bit difficult to squeeze in a sound-check. Good riddance, American Idol!


Free Blythe gets louder


Lamb of God fans say the story of Randy Blythe being held in a Czech Republic jail is not a story about a metal band—it’s a story about an American who is being wrongfully incarcerated in a foreign land. Blythe is charged in the death of a fan that jumped on stage multiple times during a Lamb of God show in 2010. The final time the fan jumped on stage, Blythe threw him off. The fan died several weeks later from a head injury. Fans say people should get this issue out front by calling radio stations, writing newspapers, calling the US Embassy in Prague and even Tweeting about the ordeal.  There's even a petition at the White House website. The US State Department has no comment about the case.
