The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Tiger on the mind
You don’t get any more rock star than this: Axl Rose is reportedly in the market for a tiger. That’s right … a real, living and breathing tiger. The New York Post reports that the Guns ‘N Roses singer openly said that he wanted to buy a tiger while he was out fine dinning a table of glamour babes. Now, that’s all the story is … that Rose was heard at a dinner table inside a posh New York restaurant saying he wants to buy a tiger. It’s a good thing I don’t have a subscription to the New York Post. If I did … I’d cancel that right about now. In other Rose related news, the G’NR front man was recently seen without a hat. Can’t make this stuff up.
Golden Gods Awards tonight
The Revolver Golden Gods Awards are tonight. Some of the big names up for awards include In This Moment’s Maria Brink, Halestorm’s Lizzy Hale, Corey Taylor, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, Deftones’ Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham, and a ton others. That airs tonight on XBOX Live and several other places.
FFDP's upcoming one-two punch
Five Finger Death Punch is ready to deliver a one-two knock out blow. Get it? Yeah, I know … stupid pun, Bishop … But really, the band plans on releasing a double album this year. Details are a bit scarce at the moment, but the band is reported to be in the process of releasing two albums with subsequent tours. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory says during the band’s recent studio session they quickly racked up 13 songs and said “why stop there.” They then quickly had a couple of dozen songs … just enough for a two volume release. One album and tour will be this summer and another album and tour will be this fall. Expect the first release out July 23rd. The first single “Lift Me Up” is supposed to air tonight during the Revolver Golden Gods ceremony. FFDP will be out on the Mayhem festival this early this summer.
