The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Inside the studio
A new video from Black Sabbath shows the band in studio and talking about the new album. IN the video, Ozzy Osbourne is joined by original Sabbath members Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi, but drummer Bill Ward is no where to be seen … nor is he even mentioned. It’s been reported for months that Ward was not happy with his contract and the band wouldn’t bend. Instead, they have Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk in studio jamming. Producing the album is famed rock producer Rick Rubin. Ozzy says that the forthcoming album, tentatively titled 13 is the most important album of his career. There’s still no firm release date for the original band members’ first attempt together in nearly 35 years. Check that video out on the front page of WQLZ.com or at this link.
And the title is …
Alice in Chains asked fans to decode the past to unveil the future … which meant going online and unscramble some letters to reveal the title of their forthcoming album. After putting together the pieces, fans found the name of the album to be The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. The album is expected to drop sometime in May. The band has a bunch of dates across the country throughout the spring, revving up to the release of the album.
Dave Grohl continues to make the rounds promoting his movie and a forthcoming accompanying soundtrack. He was on the Colbert Report Wednesday before performing a show in New York City with the Sound City Players. Then he was on Letterman last night. Sound City is now available to rent online through YouTube, Amazon and elsewhere and also available for purchase … visit SoundCityMovie.com for more details.
