The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Rush doesn't want you your applause just yet, wait until April
Rock Hall inductees announced
Rush fans, you finally did it! You got Rush to be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame! For the first time, organizers at the Rock Hall allowed for fans to vote on who they think should be inducted and sure as s**t, fans decided it was due time for Rush to get up in that bitch! Guitarist Alex Lifeson says fans were hurt that the band was snubbed for years, but we know it was eating at you even more, Alex! Some others that are included in the Rock Hall induction list include Donna Summer, who just passed away this year, Public Enemy, Randy Newman, Heart and Albert King. The ceremony will be April 18th in trendy L.A.
New music service
Move over Pandora, Spotify or whatever other music service you’ve been using, there’s a new one coming to town and it has the backing of an odd pair. Named Daisy, the new music service is being backed by Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and Hip Hop legend Dr. Dre. Reznor says Daisy will be a system that will help listeners find new music. Not sure how that’s different from the other services out there, but whatever. One thing to consider is that a lot of these music services charge for premium service. Forget that. Keep it here with WQLZ. We won’t charge you or track your listening habits through intrusive apps. Plus you’ve got me (Bishop), so that’s a plus! In other Nine Inch Nails news, Reznor says that Interscope plans on dropping a Nine Inch Nails best of record that will feature two new songs. The release is expected sometime in 2014.
