The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
There’s a new video from Jason Newsted’s band, Newsted. The tune “King of the Underdogs” comes in at just over 6 minutes and has the bassist lit up in all red as if being taken over by rage. He then goes into a cniption fit where the band then appears in a cave with a checkerboard floor. The band featuring Mike Mushok from Staind has an album out now titled Heavy Metal Music.
Fred Durst thinks his life is so interesting that it’s fit for a TV show … that’s why he’s in the process of developing an autobiographical TV drama for the CW network. The notorious front man for Limp Bizkit will develop the one-hour TV drama called The Noise, which will be about a musician in the 1990s who forms a band that hits the big time. But surely hitting the big time isn’t the only thing that works its way into the show. As with most things Fred Durst, there’s sure to be some drama.
The next project
Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Farrell is no stranger to side projects. His latest is called Kind Heaven and he hopes it will surface in the near future. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter he says he doesn’t have the money in pocket right now to make it happen, he wants people to remember the name so when it does happen they can hop all over. It’s still unclear if Kind Heaven will be a solo project or if it’ll be the next Jane’s Addiction release. We should know more next year.
Speaking of Jane’s Addiction, the band got the 2,509th star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and all the founding members of the band were there to celebrate the dedication. In its infancy, Jane’s Addiction toured the LA club scene extensively.
