The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Deadly spider bite?
As his former band mates remember his skill and passion for music, more is coming out about how Jeff Hanneman died. It was originally reported that Hanneman died from ongoing liver problems. But, a spokeswoman for Slayer says a spider bite probably had something to do with the liver problems … which doesn’t help those of us suffering from arachnophobia. It’s unclear if an autopsy has been conducted but we do know that a spider bite nearly cost him his arm after he failed to get immediate treatment.
Another clue is expected today from Queens of the Stone Age as they continue to drum up interest in their forthcoming album Like Clockwork. If you go to the website LikeClockwork.tv, you can enter your phone number (or your friend’s phone number) and get a creepy message. Another clue is expected on the site today. The album hits shelves June 4th.
On stage attack
Justin Beiber wasn’t the only one who was recently attacked while on stage … Motley Crue’s guitarist Mick Mars was also attacked and knocked over while performing in Canada. Video showing the attack was posted online, but now only fan shot video of the aftermath is available online. The band took a brief break after the attack only to emerge later and finish the show. Mars later posted on Twitter that he is fine, but his body guard suffered several “busted” ribs from the attack.
