The show must go on

 

It wasn’t a stage that collapse at a Linkin Park show in South Africa that took the life of a concert goer—it was an advertising scaffolding. One fan died after the temporary structure collapsed in high winds Wednesday. The band posted on their website heartfelt condolences to the fan’s family saying she died from injuries she sustained in the collapse. Nineteen other people were hurt. A venue spokesperson says that the engineers gave the green light for the structure, but after the collapse they cleared the scene and the band went on with their show.

 

Single suggestions

 

We’re getting a bit of insight on the business of dealing with record label execs as Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix shares how the band proposed several different tracks as the lead single from the new album, but got rejected. Shaddix says he took several tunes from the album to the label and they kept saying “that’s good, but not the lead single.” He first tried submitting “Won’t Let Up.” That didn’t fit their tastes. He then tried sending them “Gimme Back My Life.” That wasn’t what the execs were looking for either. Shaddix says he began to question their hearing. The third time was the charm as he submitted “Still Swingin” which execs said would be the first single. The tune isn’t the deepest song in the world, but Shaddix says it’s a “smack ‘em upside the head with the truth” song. The Connection is in stores now.

 

Greatest hits planned

 

Chevelle plans on releasing, what they’re calling, a collection of favorites. Expect to pick up Stray Arrows December 4th.
