Shinedown bassist Eric Bass was held up at a hospital a few days ago after he suffered a second degree ankle sprain. Details are sketchy as to how the incident happened, but it was on stage in Texas. The band posted an up close pick of Bass’s ankle alongside the bassist on stage, resting upon a stool. Shinedown will be with Bush and Airbourne at the Prairie Capital Convention Center May 7th for QLZ’s 20th Birthday Bash.
Teasing the new album
If you go to Queens of the Stone Age’s website, you’ll see a big “Q” and a random audio snippet will play. If you refresh, a new audio snippet will play. If you refresh again, another snippet plays. If you keep hitting refresh on your browser, new clips will play and you’ll probably see some faint text that says “JUNE.” Could that be when the new album is out? Online reports indicate that the site also says “… Like Clockwork,” which could be the title of the new attempt. There are some heavy hitters on the album including Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor and others.
