Freese quits APC, Corgan Sued, and Cornell Sued


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

 

Josh Freese is, admittedly, a drumming whore! and he's good at it!

Freese quits APC

 

One of my personal favorite session drummers has quit one of my favorite bands. Josh Freese sent out a tweet yesterday announcing that he has decided to sever ties with A Perfect Circle. Freese, who has been with the band since their inception 13 years ago, didn’t explain his departure but he did apologize to fans who are anxiously awaiting A Perfect Circles’ one scheduled show December 29th at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Freese has slapped skins for a ton of bands different bands in studio and on stage, including Weezer, Ween, Guns and Roses, Nine Inch Nails and lately he’s been rocking alongside Sublime with Rome.

 

Corgan sued

 

Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan is getting sued by his neighbor, Grey’s Anantomy star Eric Dane. Apparently one of Corgan’s trees fell into Dane’s home. The tree fell during a storm in LA last year and even knocked down a power line. Dane’s wife was 9 months pregnant at the time. What does this have to do with music … not much.

 

Cornell sued

 

Neither does this story, really, except that it involves another musician getting sued. This time, it’s Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell. He’s being sued by his former maid for what she claims is underpayment. That’s funny … a legendary grunge band member had a maid. There’s definitely some irony, not ironing, in there. The maid says she was never paid overtime and was never given her required by law uninterrupted breaks.
