The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
QOTSA on Conan
Queens of the Stone Age performed on Conan last night. The band took to the stage for the TBS show to perform the tune ”Vampyer of Time and Memory” from the album Like Clockwork. The tune was performed with front man Josh Homme taking to a blood red piano wearing a nice navy suit. The entire band all were wearing suits … Were they dressing up for Halloween? Does anyone ever get this right? Watch that performance today at TeamCoco.com Queens of the Stone Age recently announced a tour of Australia where they’ll share the stage with Nine Inch Nails.
Video out now
You’ve been hearing Shinedown’s tune “Adrenaline” on the air and may have even had it on repeat on your mp3 player ‘cuz it’s from their 2012 album Amaryllis. Hell, the disc has already pumped out three No. 1 singles, and even a No. 2 tune. Now the band is out spinning the tune in video land. The video is a mix of live video and still shots of the band ripping it up on stage.
Another Manson cameo
Marilyn Manson isn’t just lending his voice to an ABC show about Peter Pan, he’s also lending his comedy talents to Funny or Die. The opening clip to the 20 minutes video mocks old 50’s black and white horror shows while at the same time highlights, using dolls, some of the better horror movies of the day. Then it gets into a wiener roast where some kids ask “are these stories spooky to you?” Then Marilyn Manson shows up blindfolded and starts into a story … you’ll have to watch the entire thing to get the full impact.
After Lou Reed’s death, a flurry of rock stars and other musicians took to the webs to share their thoughts. We were a bit taken-a-back when all Metallica did was post a picture of the band with Reed from the Lulu photoshoot. Well, now, drummer Lars has posted his heartfelt tribute to the influential poet/singer in The Guardian newspaper. Reed passed away earlier this week.
