Stapp is Back, Nirvana's RSD Offering, Megadeth to Honor Country Legend, and Wylde Halloween Getup

The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ


Stapp is back


Creed front man Scott Stapp is taking advantage of being away from the band with a solo album out early next month … I know … we’re all dripping with anticipation. The singer has released a lyric video for the first single from the attempt titled "Slow Suicide". The tune comes in with a standard shrilling guitar riff then the signature marbles-in-the-mouth voice of Stabb burst onto the scene with the tag line “I’m committing slow suicide”. The lyric video also shows a bunch of pics of Stapp on stage, off stage, with long hair and short hair. The album Proof of Life comes out Nov. 5th.



Nirvana's RSD offering


The tradition of having independent record stores offer up some unique special limited edition artifacts the day after Thanksgiving continues this year, and though Nirvana has been out of the game making new music for years, there will be a newly remixed and remastered version of Nirvana’s In Utero next month for Record Store Day. The double disc vinyl set will feature new versions of the original tracks. Record Store Day is November 29th.


Megadeth to honor country legend

George Jones is getting honored with a tribute concert and Megadeth has been added to the lineup. Wait … Who? George Jones is a country legend … whey have a thrasher band there? Front man Dave Mustain says that Jones “had a way of putting his finger right into your wounds and letting you know” he understands your pain. That show will be November 22 down in Nashville.


Wylde Halloween getup


Need a last minute Halloween idea? Well, maybe not too last minute, but still. Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde has just the thing for some of you metalheads. There’s a limited-edition costume beard, mustache, BLS beanie and plaid cut-off button up shirt on his website that’s going for $70. The beard is even braided with one of the braids going down to the waist, just like Zakk’s. So, it’s a pretty good get for the Halloween party or if you just want to walk around your basement and act like your Zakk.
