The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Dropping off the tour
And they’re off … the tour lineup. As I Lay Dying has dropped off their planned tour with Killswitch Engage. The band is still reeling from the arrest of their singer Tim Lambesis who was arrested earlier this month in a murder-for-hire plot where he’s accused of paying an undercover officer cash money to kill his estranged wife. In an arraignment hearing last week, prosecutors said they had Lambesis on video working the deal for someone to kill his wife. Lambesis has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Killswitch Engage and others will be at Pops in Sauget June 18th and in Joliet July 8th at Mojos.
Sabbath on CSI
Black Sabbath was the featured guest on prime time last night as they performed the tune “End of the Beginning” on CSI: Crime Scene Investigators and front man Ozzy actually gets some face time. The episode, which aired on network TV last night, opens with Black Sabbath on stage performing for a small club. Some cops are there talking about other concerts they’ve attended. Something happens to where Ozzy gets interviewed by a member of the press. Apparently he gets to drop a plug for the band’s new album 13 which comes out June 11th. The episode is available to view online.
