The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
New album details
Korn has posted the track listing and album cover for their forthcoming release Paradigm Shift. The first album in ten years featuring original guitarist Brian “Head” Welch will be out October 1st. Fans will get their fill of Korn with 13 new tunes for their listening pleasure.
Top 50 live acts
A list of the 50 best live bands right now has been compiled by Rolling Stone Magazine and a panel of so-called experts and the top ten is pretty light in the rock category. Toping the list is friggin’ Bruce Springsteen. Then there are several hip hop acts. Rage Against The Machine made the top ten and they’re not even tour right now. Others that made the top 20 include Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys, and Metallica. Speaking of, Metallica’s Lars was on the panel.
Not upset at Chester
In other news, STP’s former front man Scott Weiland says he’s not happy about what’s happened with the band he helped form, but doesn’t put the blame of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington for stepping up to the plate. In an interview with another radio station, Weiland says that the brother’s DeLeo can be pretty persuasive. There are lawsuits from both sides going back and forth.
Rockin with Phil
During a Phil Anselmo show a few days ago in Oklahoma, the former Pantera front man brought up a cancer stricken kid to perform the legendary song “Walk.” The kid, Peyton Arens, tore it up on stage with the band, according to an online post from Anselmo. You can watch video of the performance online.
Not so loud close to home
Oh, and rocker-wife and actress Sheri Moon Zombie doesn’t like loud when it’s so close to her home. Mrs. Zombie is joining with other neighbors in Woodbury, Connecticut, to ask from some relief from a close skate park that gets pretty loud. The town is in the process of remedying the noise problem.
