The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
VIP listening party
In an exclusive Black Sabbath video shown to some VIPs in the music biz, Ozzy Osbourne says of the new album ““I’m making an album I like and if someone else likes it, great.” The video, produced by Ozzy’s son Jack, was shown to invitees Wednesday in Hollywood just before a listening party for the new album 13. Even before being released, the eight song album is being dubbed one of the best metal albums of 2013. Pre-orders are going on now. The disc drops June 11th.
Told you earlier this week about Metallica pimping some pinball machines. Well, news now has it that there will be three different machines … not just one. Pics of the Stern Pinball Metallica table tops and overall machines have been posted on line here, here and here. Diehard fans and arcades will have to fork over a pretty chunk of change … anywhere between 5 and nearly 8,000 bones. The tables will be available this May.
Avril and Manson hook up for new song
Three songs on Kimmel
The bad thing about being stuck in Central Illinois is that we can’t just pick up and check out the rockstars that perform on late night TV. The kick ass thing about the internet is that we can still experience those performances … even the ones that didn’t air on TV. Alice In Chains appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel. The aired protion showed the band playing “Stone” from their forthcoming album. But you can also find the band performing “Hollow” and the classic “Man in the Box.” AIC’s new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here hits shelves May 28th. Watch those performances at this link.
Lavigne hooks up with Manson
It’s a pairing that has us scratching our heads. Canadian popstar and fiancé of Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne says that she has a colabo with Marilyn Manson on her new record. The song is called “Bad Girl.” Nice cliché. If you’re interested, which we’re not, Lavigne’s new album comes out this summer.
