The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
As we get closer to an eventual new album from Dave Grohl and the boys with Foo Fighters, fans are getting a glimpse at the grueling and bloody work the band is submitting themselves to. Grohl posted a pic to Foo Fighters’ Facebook page that shows the body of one of his session guitars and a couple of red-stained guitar pics. Now, some may think its some kind of contemporary art piece because of the vibrant red splatters on the guitar, but that’s Grohl’s blood. The message says “First practice. Been too long. Look out, Mexico … xoxo Dave.” The band will play in Mexico for two different shows next month.
Though they weren’t blood, they were only married, and their three children were also not blood, they were adopted, Tim Lambesis’ wife is still suing for the As I Lay Dying singer for $2 million. Meggan Lambesis was the target of an alleged murder for higher plot. She filed for divorce back in 2012. Earlier this year, Tim was picked up and accused of giving an undercover cop money to kill his wife. Meggan says she and the three kids fear for their life. I’d sue too!
Schedules show and Through the Never release
Metallica have plans to play AT&T Park for their second annual Metallica Night in San Francisco. The band made the announcement that they’ll hook up with the San Francisco Giants May 16 of next year for another night of rock. Last year the group performed the National Anthem before the first pitch.
Speaking of Metallica, the band will have their Through The Never movie released on pretty much every video format you could think of, except VHS, BETA and LASER DISC. The movie will be available for fans January 28th of next year. There will be extensive behind-the-scenes extras for all formats. And yes, it will even be available via 3D Blu-ray, but you’ll have to have a 3D TV to catch the magic.
There’s a new site out there that has some updated images of what some dead rockers would look like if they were alive today. Top of the list is Kurt Cobain, but they also have composites of what John Lennon, Elvis Presley and even Janis Joplin would look like if they didn’t kick the bucket.
