The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Another lineup shakeup
Nine Inch Nails News has been pouring out lately and most of it has been good. But, there are some shakeups with the band that can’t go unnoticed. Last week heard the news that NIN had a new tune “Came Back Haunted” which was released and aired Thursday. That also came with news that the band would do an extensive tour this fall with a stop up Chicago for Lollapallooza in August and a stop in St. Louis October 1st. There would also be a new album dropped in September. But the band is loosing another member. Guitarist Adrian Belew is said to be departing from the live band. In a statement posted online he says that he’s departing from the band, but it’s not on bad terms. Jane’s Addiction’s Eric Avery stepped down from the band last month to focus on other projects. Long-time Nails contributor Robin Fink has stepped up to fill Avery’s exit, but it’s unclear who Trent will bring on for Belew.
Manson dedicates song
More on the relationship between Marilyn Manson and Paris Jackson: it’s now being reported that during a concert Manson dedicated a song to the young heiress of Pop King Michael Jackson. The song performed last week was “Disposable Teens.” Manson took to the stage, announced the song was dedicated to Paris, and then proceeded, during the song, to simulate an act associated with suicide. When it was reported that Paris attempted to take her own life after not being able to go to a Marilyn Manson concert (among other thigns), Manson reached out and told her she was welcome to his shows anytime. A judge has now asked for a probe into the young Jackson’s well being just as a court case over Michael Jackson’s death continues.
Black Sabath’s 13 comes out tomorrow, and now the band says that will not be their last album. A recent interview revealed that the band does plan future attempts, but they’ve still gotta get this one out to the masses.
