Reed's Memorial Service, Murder/Suicide Update and Waters' Dad's Death

The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ


Reed's memorial service


Don’t expect to have a ton of grandstanding today when Lou Reed gets memorialized in New York. At the Lincoln Center in The Empire State there will be a public memorial this afternoon. According to Reed’s official Facebook page, there will be no speeches or any live performances during today’s ceremonies … “just Lou’s voice, guitar music and songs.” Recordings of the deceased artists will be featured today during the remembrance. Songs will be selected by friends and family. Reed died late last month after battling cancer problems.


Murder/suicide update


New details about the Yellow Dogs murder/suicide from earlier this week. A couple of surviving band members have posted a lengthy message saying they appreciate the out pour of support after Monday’s triple murder/suicide. The letter, provided to Pitchfork, gives details about the band’s beginning and end. The Yellow Dogs escaped Iran back in 2010 because Rock Music is banned there.


Waters' dad's death


If you know anything about Pink Floyd, it’s The Wall. If you know anything more about that, you know that Roger Waters has some deep seated issues with the loss of his father who was a British soldier during World War II. Well, a 93-year-old British war vet is helping the famed musician get details about his dad’s death. The Guardian reports that Harry Shindler hooked up with Waters at a veterans event and decided to help. What Shindler was able to find out is that Waters’ dad, Eric Fletcher Waters, died in a ditch at 11:30 in the morning February 18th, 1944. Roger Waters was only 5 months old. The spot where Waters’ dad died is now the town center of Aprilia. The Pink Floyd singer wrote a poem for Shindler to show his gratitude. Meanwhile, it’s reported that Waters is recording his first rock album in over two decades. That should be a treat.
