The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
ICP's Backlogged Bills
If the Insane Clown Posse keep up at this rate, they’ll get to be labeled dead beats just like the State of Illinois. Vendors at the most recent ICP Gathering festival say they’re still owed money … and a lot of it! One vender that provided support for the event for the past three years says a $54,000 check it got from the group hasn’t cleared the bank. That vendor has sent out the call to others in the music biz to not do business with Psychopathic Records. The sheriff’s department in the southern Illinois county where the Gathering happened a handful of weeks ago says it also got a check from Psychopathic Records as a donation for vests and stun guns, but the bounced. A statement to the Associated Press from Psychopathic say costs of this year’s event exceeded estimates, but that the company will pay it’s obligations. Ha! Illinois has been saying the same thing for years, and state government is now several billion dollars in backlogged bills. Good luck, guys! Now stop spending money on clown makeup and pay your billz.
Papa Papa Roach
The front man of Papa Roach is now a Papa … again. Jacoby Shaddix Tweeted that his wife Kelly gave birth Tuesday to a boy named Brixton Gabriel. Congrats! You know it’s a different world we live in when we get news that rock stars are having kids. Just a few decades ago, if the news came out of a rock star having a kid, it was only in revelations that the kid was mothered by some chick from a backstage party who is now seeking child support.
Slash's Slasher Flick
Slash is gearing up to release his first ever movie titled Nothing Left To Fear. The flick, which is a horror movie, stars Anne Heche. Aptly named Slasher Films, the shredder’s company, will release the motion picture in theaters October 4th and then it will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and on demand October 8th. Aside from owning the company behind the movie, Slash and fellow musician Myles Kennedy wrote the music for the film.
