The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Full Nails show posted
As we new it would be the case, the full set from Nine Inch Nails at Lollapalooza is available to view online. The first show state side for the band in years was highlighted by an amazing stage show with upwards to seven movable and interactive screens, plus the juxtaposition of classic synth tunes butted up against the edgy hard rock tunes plus three new tunes. If you didn’t see it stream live Friday, or you weren’t in Chicago for the show, you should watch the entire set online! The new album Hesitation Marks is due out next month.
New single posted
The album Sammy Haggar and Friends is set to drop September 24th and the first single “Knockdown Dragout,” including the video, is available to stream online through Rolling Stone. Haggar is joined on the album by the likes of Toby Kieth, Taj Mahal, Kid Rock, Joe Satriani, Mickey Hart, and others.
There’s a new attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood and they’re hoping to creep visitors out. It’s the Black Sabbath: 13 3D maze and it’ll be available during the Halloween season. Sabbath front man Ozzy Osbourne says he’s seen the sketches of what the ride will look like and says it’s amazing. Visitors will get a glimpse at Lucifer, not the real one, and his bride alongside blood-soaked dead bodies and radioactive pools. There will also be 3D video worked in through the maze. If you’re in the LA area, you’ll be able to hit up the display September 20th.
He's too fat
Speaking of Sabbath, more is coming out as to what may have been one of the issues concerning original drummer Bill Ward. Ozzy Osbourne is quoted in the New York Daily News saying that Ward is too overweight and that drummers need to be in shape. He also said that it would have been difficult for him to play two-hour shows each night and cited Ward’s recent heart attacks.
