The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Late night debut
I was just thinking this the other night … I’ve never seen Nine Inch Nails do a late night show. You know, bands do it all the time. They’ll go on Letterman or Leno or Conan … you know, to hit up the late night crowd. Nine Inch Nails have never done that … until last week. For the first time in their 25 years of existence, the band made their late night network TV debut and Jimmy Kimmel was their host Thursday. There the band played the tunes “Various Methods of Escape” and “All Time Low” from their latest album Hesitation Marks. Watch those video below:
Don't wipe that there
Not to self, don’t go to another country and wipe your ass with their flag … or a favored soccer jersey for that matter. Red Hot Chili Pepper’s drummer Chad Smith is getting death threats from crazed soccer fans in Brazil after a drum clinic he recently was part of. Video shows the drummer on stage getting a jersey from what some observers say is a Flamengo club jersey and then he puts it down the back of his pans and makes a wiping motion. Bad call, Chad. That angered the audience in the video and online. The band had a gig ion Rio de Janeiro Saturday night. Smith has since apologized.
Wrath full of rage
There’s another video from Buckcherry, and this one’s a must see! The video opens with what looks like a bunch of troubled teens and other miscreants walking into a basement of some sort and then a select few of them getting into a cage where punches are thrown and faces are bloodied. It doesn’t seem to matter that a dude is hitting a chick and visa versa … the rage is thick with the band performing in the background. The tune is “Wrath” and it’s from the band’s Confessions album. The cage match between bunches of troubled people isn’t the only thing the video features … it also shows what are some horrible memories from one kid in particular … a kid who saw something tragic as a youth. He obviously takes his wrath out on somebody in the cage. Watch the video today.
