What Will it Sound Like? No Love for the Biz, Only For the Fans and Roid Rage


The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station

 

What will it sound like?

 

When members can step away and take a break, it helps make the music better when they do get back together, that’s according to bassist Vinnie Hornsby and guitarist Clint Lowery from Sevendust. The band was in town Saturday and QLZ sat down for a chat with the two. Among the topics of discussion were the reports that front man Lajon Witherspoon may break off for a solo attempt. What that would be is still up in the air, but Lowery says that Lajon has a wide pallet for music.

“I don’t know what the outcome will be because he likes so much stuff. He likes country, he likes pop, you know, he likes so much kind of stuff. Whatever he does will showcase whatever he likes to do. Whether or not we can stop touring enough for him to do it, you know?!”

Lowry himself has his share of side project experience having worked with bands like Still Rain, Dark New Day, Hello Demons … meet skeleton and others.

 

No love for the biz, only for the fans

 

The two also sounded off about the music industry saying it's crooked and the only thing that keeps them going is their connection with the fans. Before taking the stage at Boondocks Saturday, QLZ got to sit down and talk about the toils of the music biz. Lowery says it’s a dirty industry, but there’s one thing that keeps them going.

“The music business beats the love of music out of you. We’ve been grinding this out for 15 almost 20 years and we’ve seen a lot of things in the industry that aren’t in the artists favor. It’s always based on the labels and that. The only thing that keeps us alive is that we have a good connection with our fan base. I don’t have much love for this industry and what they take from the artist.”

Both Lowry and Hornsby says that future generations of musicians will be the ones to change the face of the industry.  Video of the interview, along with meet-and-greet photos will be posted to WQLZ.com soon.

Roid rage

 

Over the weekend it was revealed that As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis is blaming steroids for his erratic behavior. His lawyer suggests that his mind was ravaged by steroid use and that set him over the top to try and hire an undercover cop to murder his estranged wife. Lambesis’ wife filed for divorce late last year and said in documents that the singer was more interested in a mistress, tattoos and working out. Lambesis was arrested earlier this month and charged in a murder-for-hire plot.
