The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Back on stage next month
Foo Fighters fans really didn’t have to wait too long for a return to the stage. After taking just a handful of months off after releasing and touring for the album Wasting Light, the band plans to be back at it next month. The word is they’ll return to the stage for their first full fledged shows December 11th and 13th in Mexico City. Does that mean the band has a new album? Well, if you recall, front man Dave Grohl was pretty busy in the early part of this year with his Sound City documentary, but that hasn’t kept the band from being creative. Grohl and others hinted at the band already putting together new music. Surely we’ll hear something come 2014.
Tremaine to direct The Dirt
Raise your hand if you want to see a biopic about Motley Crue. Now raise your other hand if you want to see a band sanctioned and approved biopic? Now you may want to lower both hands and shield your balls before Jackass director Jeff Tremaine come in to give you a crotch shot … ‘cuz word is he’s gonna be behind the camera directing the film. Titled The Dirt, the 448 page book is pure debauchery in the name of Rock ‘n Roll and who better to help translate that debauchery to the big screen than Tremaine? Tremaine says he gets a ton of offers to direct movies, but he incisted and actually sought out The Dirt. Nikki Sixx is already touting an Oscar victory. Tremaine has the No. 1 movie out right now in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.
