The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Through the latest
Comic-Con was over the weekend and Metallica was there talking about their new movie Metallica Through The Never. Actor Dane DeHaan, who plays the central roll of a Metallica roadie sent out on a mission, says he was confused by the script. Since he doesn’t have any lines in the movie, there were a bunch of directions and it took 10 reads of the 15 page script just to get a grasp of what he was doing. Drummer Lars says that the band has been focused on the film for two years. It’s set to hit up IMAX screens September 27th with a full release in theaters in October. Lars also says that 2014 will be almost all about another Metallica record. Watch the latest Through The Never trailer below:
Def Leppard is gearing up for a documentary series following their recent stint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas earlier this year. The series “Living With Def Leppard” follows the band on and off stage. There’s no word yet on when or where the series will run.
This isn’t your sports fans’ fantasy camp … this is for the rockers. The annual Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp is starting to take shape and it’s a chance for fans to feel as if they’ve made the big times! This year Sam Ash Music Stores is getting behind the effort. Among some of the camp’s so-called “counselors” is KISS drummer Peter Criss. You’ll also surely get a good swath of musical taste with blues artist Johnny Winter. Camp opens up next month and after campers learn from some of the greats they then get to show off on stage in New York’s Time Square. Get more details online at RockCamp.com.
Gwar have announced details about their new album. Expect to pick up Battle Maxiums September 17th. The first single “Madness at the Core of Time” is currently streaming online. It’s the band’s first album since the 2011 death of guitarist Cory Smoot, also known as Flattus Maximus.
