The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Stone Temple Pilots have filled the role of front man, even if only temporarily and against the wishes of original front man Scott Weiland. During a show over the weekend out west, STP surprised an audience in LA when instead of Weiland, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington took to the stage. This was during a radio station’s Weenie Roast where the band performed a new tune called “Out of Time.” The band “fired” Weiland back in February, something Weiland says isn’t possible because he started the band. The tune “Out of Time” featuring Bennington is available to stream online.
NIN change up
Late last week there was a switch up with the refreshed Nine Inch Nails lineup that supposed to be hitting the festival circuit very soon. It’s reported that Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery is bowing out and NIN standby Robin Fink is stepping back in. Avery says he wants to focus more on music and film projects in LA. Nine Inch Nails is set to play Lalapalooza in Chicago this August.
Film festival debut
Metallica has premiered their 3D movie at Cannes Film Festival. During which, more of the movies plot has been revealed. Drummer Lars says that “Metallica Through The Never” is a movie not like any other that is part drama, part concert film. Some may say it is very similar to Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” movie, but that wasn’t primarily live concert footage shot in 3D. “Through The Never” is. The film features a roadie sent out on a task who then quickly finds his world upside down. After a run at IMAX, there will be a standard theater release here in the states later this year.
