Outlaw Country Star Shot, He's Gonna be a Great-Grand Dad, Sevendust Looking for Funds & Grohl Almost Didn't Make It

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


Outlaw Country star shot


Who says outlaw country isn’t hard as nails? A shooting that left outlaw country star Wayne Mills dead apparently started down in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Pit and Barrel bar after hours where Mills was smoking a cigarette in a non-smoking area. A newspaper down that way says that the bar owner and Mills got into a confrontation about the smoking and the bar owner claims to have pull and fired because of self-defense … something police are still looking into. No arrests have been made and the owner had a valid permit for the gun. The Wayne Mills Band played the college town circuit for 15 years.


He's gonna be a great-grand dad


The band’s been around for 50 years and now the front man is about to be a great-grand dad. Mick Jagger is preparing to be a great-grandfather to his daughter Jade’s daughter. The 21-year-old is expecting and the date is coming soon. Jade tells a London newspaper that she doesn’t expect the new designation to slow Jagger down one bit. The Rolling Stones plan to tour Australia next year.


Sevendust looking for funds


Crowdfunding ain’t just for the small fish. Sevendust plans to seek funds from fans for a planned acoustic album. The PledgeMusic campaign helps bands seek funds from fans in order to bring about new projects. Sevendust explains in an intro letter for the campaign that they have some great ideas for new acoustic songs, plus some remakes of some old favorites. For every fan that drops some money down, they’ll get a download of the record and access to exclusive bonus content. There are other options, including dropping $2,000 to have a private dinner with the band or even $10,000 for a private acoustic show. For more, check out the band’s PledgeMusic page.


Grohl almost didn't make it


This month marks the 20 year anniversary of Nirvana’s historic “MTV Unplugged” session. With the anniversary comes details that Kurt Cobain almost didn’t permit Dave Grohl from performing. The revelation comes from MTV. Apparently Cobain didn’t like how rehearsals were going. But all worked out great. MTV has released some special behind-the-scenes footage of that performance.
