The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Would we see it? Yeah. Rob Zombie may be looking to make his Broadway debut by transposing his House of 1000 Corpses film to the stage. Talking with the AP, Zombie said the film "has those elements of ridiculousness that could translate to the stage of somewhere between Hairspray and Rocky Horror Picture Show on stage because it's just the characters are that ridiculous, the scenarios are that ridiculous. In other words Rob Zombie thinks Broadway is ridiculous but more importantly he thinks his film is ridiculous. We thought his Halloween reboot was ridiculous. But, We'd definitely check out the Broadway version of 1000 Corpses ... because it'd be ridiculous.
Dave and the bloody painting
Not sure how to approach this other than to say Dave Navarro had his blood used to paint a portrait of his mother. What makes this even more intense is that Navarro's mother, Constance Navarro, was murdered by her boyfriend when Navarro was 15. The murder was caught years later and prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law. A series of photos of Dave's bloodletting into a wine glass used by Samppa Von Cyborg to paint the portrait is available on Cyborg's Tumbler.
