The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
They rehearsed for about 10 days before taking to the stage to record their live CD and DVD and Def Leppard are stoked to give you Viva! Hysteria, which comes out tomorrow. The band’s bassist Rick Savage says during rehersals the band had to play a few songs more than just a few times because there are some tunes they rarely played on the forthcoming release. As for some other songs … Savage says there are some that are a “pain in the butt” to have to rehearse and you could only imagine what songs those could be. Could “Pour Some Sugar On Me” be one? Yup! As for getting phycially ready to be Def Leppard on stage, Savage says that the band only tweeked their lifestyle slightly by drinking only 9 bottles of wine instead of 10. Lushes. The live DVD and CD Viva! Hysteria drops in stores tomorrow.
On network TV
Marily Manson gets all cartoonified by lending his voice to the ABC show Once Upon a Time. Rolling Stone Magazine reports that Manson will be the voice of Shadow, who works for Peter Pan. In an interesting twist on the Shadow character from the traditional “Peter Pan” story, this Shadow actually steals children. The show creators said they wanted someone who could make their skin crawl and they got it with Manson. The show featuring Manson’s voice will run in November on ABC. Check your local listings.

Sammy Hagar is getting honroed in Lowell, Massachusetts with his own day. That’s because he gave a check for $5,000 to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank before his concert there. So that’s how much it costs to get a day named after you … Maybe we can get our listeners to raise five grand for an area food bank to get the Springfield City Council to make an upcoming day QLZ Day! The Challenge is on!
