The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Band mates speak up
Members of As I Lay Dying have posted their first statements since the band’s singer Tim Lambesis was arrested in a murder-for-hire plot. Eariler this week, Lambesis was picked up in Oceanside, California, after trying to solicit an undercover cop to murder his estranged wife. Lambesis’s wife Meegan filed for divorce back in September. The band members say they have as much information as fans do and are keeping Tim, his family and all those impacted in their thoughts. They say that the legal process is just that …
a process. We’ll keep you posted on the latest.
In trouble again
Wes Scantlin may have to get a new belt, ‘cuz the one he’s notching with the number of arrests is getting a bit filled up. The Puddle of Mudd singer has been arrested again. This time he was arrested for outstanding warrants. Police in Hollywood stopped Scantlin for speeding. The warrants were for driving on a suspended license and a recent cocaine arrest. Dude also owes the IRS $60,000, is getting a divorce and on and on and on.
They teased a new lyric video last month for the tune “Swerve City” and now Deftones have released the actual video for the opening track of the album Koi No Yokan. The video is dominated by a dark haired woman riding a horse through the desert. Chino appears driving a car at the very end and meets the woman in a dark driveway. That’s pretty much the gist.
Smell it up in 2014
Slipknot's Clown says that he can smell the band's next record coming in 2014. Also known as Shawn Crahan, the percussionist told Loudwire at the Revolver Golden God Awards last week that "The energy is out there and you can feel it. People go places [band members] once were and feel it there, but not in full body, and that’s just because we’re returning. You can ask anyone around the world what the culture of the ‘Knot is, who truly knows, and they will tell you that something has changed in the atmosphere". There are a few festival dates for the band throughout the world. Other members are also busy with side projects. We’re expecting members to get together at the end of the year to begin recording.
