The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
It's not everyday that you get to see a six year old screaming about zombies with a hardcore metal voice, but that's what you go when Aaralyn and her 9-year-old brother Isaiah took to America's Got Talent the other day. The four judge panel including Howard Stern and Howie Mandel were a bit shocked when the duo started rocking out. They eventually got booted from the competition, but not without a standing ovation from the crowd.
Back in court
Speaking of screamers ... Tim Lambesis appeared in court yesterday. He could have changed his not guilty plea for a guilty one, but that didn't happen. Now he's gonna head back into court September 16th. Lambesis remains free on bail. The As I Lay Dying singer was arrested in early May for giving an undercover cop $1,000, and instructions to kill his estranged wife.
Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd plans a solo album. Originally the project "In Deep Owl" was supposed to just be Ben on accoustic, but that quickly changed to something bigger when Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain signed up. The album In Deep Owl is due out in late August. You can hear a sample at the same place you can pre-order the album.
