The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Discriminating against neck tattoo
The drummer from Filter was barred access to a restaurant in Denver last week … because of his neck tattoo … that’s according to video from Filter front man Richard Patrick. Drummer Jeff Fabb told The Hollywood Reporter that he was perplexed by being denied a seat at the table at Brothers Bar & Grill because the band had eaten there earlier in the day. After their show they wanted to head back there and grab a bite with some fans, but Fabb wasn’t allowed in. Patrick used his cell phone to shoot video of Fabb being denied entry and then unloaded a profanity laced tirade at the establishment.
Eddie doesn't like guns
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder is out there getting all political. The front man is taking a public stance about current gun laws in the US. In a recent interview, the PJ front man says he almost wishes “bad things” upon gun owners who think guns are fun. Without citing any poll, Vedder states that 90 percent of Americans want more gun laws and he also says that if he didn’t have music to take some of his aggression out or take the edge off “you wouldn’t want me having a gun either.” Watch that video here. It’s good you recognize that you shouldn’t have a gun, Eddie, because obviously you know nothing about them. Pearl Jam’s new album Lightening Bolt hits stores tomorrow.
Take PJ to the ball game
Meanwhile, the band’s tunes are going to get some love from baseball fans as Fox Sports partnered with the band to air select songs during the networks’ coverage of the World Series. That will be between October 23rd and the 31st. All together there will be about 48 PJ tunes set as music beds, opening teases, commercial bumpers and more.
