The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
(Kind of) new Nirvana
It really was tragic to lose Nirvana when we did. That's the realization after a ton of never-been-released video and audio was released with the 20th Aniversary Edition of In Utero. Not only has there been a release of what sounds like garage band recordings, but also some pro-shot video (one seen below) of some killer Nirvana ... just as they were blossoming! Meanwhile, the childhood home of Kurt Cobain is up for sale.
Alright ... this is pretty huge. Korn and Rob Zombie are touring this fall. The two, surely with some other bands, will be ... wait for it ... wait for it ... NOWHERE NEAR SPRINGFIELD! They won't even be in Illinois. The seventeen-date tour, cleverly titled "Night of the Living Dreads" tour, will be in Springfield, Missouri, November 19th and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, November 20th and then Grand Rapids, Michigan, November 22nd. If you're wanting to drop coin on tickets and work the logistics for safe travels afar, tickets go on sale September 27th.
New STPCB lyric video
We can listen to the new STPCB song without some stupid iHeartRadio audio mark ... and the band chose to offer up "Black Heart" in a pretty sweet lyric video. Breaking from other recent lyric videos that are mainly some flashy CG, STPCB chose to make some hairless white dude's tattoos be the words of the song. Tell ya the truth, as critical as I am ... this is groovy tune and one that's gonna be a bit permanent ... as permanent as those tattoos. Weiland ... you're losing us! Better check the status of that lawsuit!
Tying the knot
GN'R's DJ Ashba is on honeymoon with the new wife. DJ, who plays guitars, also plays quite the romantic proposing to Nathalia Henao in a helicopter a few weeks ago. That just so happened to be a police helicopter. That police helicopter was used for a rock star to propose some model chick ... nice. Just keep in mind all the kids in third-world countries that don't even know what a police helicopter looks like the next time you abuse public resources.
