The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Fame meets fame
Not everyone is a metal head and not everyone watches TV. But the actor Michael C. Hall is still a good dude, even though Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe thought he was a porn star or something. Blythe shared a portrait of Hall, the actor who plays the lovable serial killer Dexter, after a show last week. With the black and white portrait came a fun story about how Blythe was chilling on the bus before a show and one of his cohorts brought Hall onto the bus and introduced him merely as Mike. Bltyhe kicked it, not thinking much about it, until several people, including the band’s video guy, came up to the Dexter star asking for a photograph. Blythe was confused and asked “bro, who ARE you?” He thought Hall was a rock editor or maybe a porn star. Hall revealed his identity to which Blythe responded “Oh … I don’t watch TV. I’m Sorry.” But then Blythe said … “Wait dude, I’m NOT sorry I don’t watch TV, but it’s really nice to meet you.” In the post, Blythe said Mike a good dude and that it’s important to just “let a mother f**ker chill.”
GWAR's Funny or Die
If you’re up for an 8 minute cartoon featuring GWAR’s Oderus Urungus ripping off Weird Al Yankovic’s face to wear while performing for kids at a birthday party … you’re in luck. Funny or Die has the exclusive animated short of the band’s new-found problem of their lead singer wanting to sing sanitized kids songs. They’re then tasked by a perverted doctor to get some virus out of an ancient frozen dinosaur. Think that’s weird, just wait until the end when the band save Oderus from being overly family friends.
Can't be two places at once
Meanwhile, imagine being the drummer for both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. That’s gotta get crazy when it comes to tour commitments. Well, for drummer Matt Cameron, it is getting crazy. So much so that Cameron is sitting out of the next Soundgardent tour because he’ll already be out with PJ. A statement posted on the Soundgarden website says that Cameron will take the temporary leave of absence to also spend time with his family. There will be a replacement drummer for Soungarden for any upcoming shows in the next year.
