The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Wayne Coyne is all hands
He brought what to the airport?
Fill in the blank: “Sorry Sorry Sorry!! Everyone that was inconvenienced by my _______ at OKC airport.” It’s not exactly the right thing to take with you to the airport and that’s why Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne is apologizing. What is that thing? A grenade. The Twitter apology from Coyne was posted, unoticably, earlier this month. Acording to a police report, TSA had to shut down the airport terminal and call in the bomb squad. The “all clear” was given and Coyne apologized saying he should have known better.
The numbers are in ... kinda
We should get some updated chart numbers later this week to see how Deftones, Soundgarden and others are doing with the release of their new album. Soundgarden was projected to pop off between 70 and 75K copies in the first week. Before we get those updated numbers, let’s see where the charts stand now. Aerosmith’s Music From Another Dimension landed at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. Metalers All That Remains album A War You Cannot Win got lucky No. 13, Flyleaf’s New Horizons was way down at No. 50, but still good enough to be on the Billboard 200. Stone Sour’s House of Gold and Bones Part 1 landed at No. 57 and Green Day’s iUno! came in at 72.
He's engaged ... again
Third time’s a charm, or at least Scott Weiland is hoping. The Stone Temple Pilots front man announced his engagement to photographer Jamie Wachtel. Weiland has been married twice before.
