The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Just in time for the holidays, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale is launching her own clothing and accessory line. Scissor Happy will feature all handmade pieces. The front woman says she will start off small by offering only four items at first: a denim vest, a t-shirt, a belt buckle and a skull necklace. As for her inspiration, she says that she wants to put something out there to all the people who have inspired her … the fans! The website where you can find more and place your orders is ScissorHappyByLzzyHale.com
Gathering to be moved
Guess who’s not goin’ to Cave-In-Rock, Juggling Juggallos, Juggling Juggalos … Apparently The Gathering put on year-after-year by Insane Clown Posse won’t be going back to Cave-In-Rock in southern Illinois anymore. Organizers for the five-day music festival are seeking out another venue. Gatherings are typically plagued with stories of fights, arrests, overdoses, and even a few deaths. The sheriff over Cave-In-Rock ins’t too upset about the loss of the event—he says his communities resources won’t be drained to keep the crowds in check. A new location will be announced soon.
Remember that video a couple of weeks ago of Trent Reznor on stage using Facetime to talk with a fan just before playing that fan’s favorite tune “In This Twighlight”? Well, that fan, Andrew Youssef died. The video accompanied a story that Youssef was suffering from a terminal cancer and he wasn’t able to make it to the show in Las Vegas, so Reznor gave him a view that only the Nine Inch Nails front man could provide. Sadly, Youssef lost in his battle with colon cancer at the age of 38.
Waters cleared of bully charge
Don’t call Roger Waters an anti-Semite. The Pink Floyd front man says he never meant to offend Jews with the use of the Star of David in his three-year world tour for The Wall. He says he’s very concerned about wrongly being labeled a bully because of the display, which includes the six-pointed star along with other religious symbols falling from a plane during the tune “Goodbye Blue Sky.” Waters has met with the Anti-Defamation League who later came out saying they don’t believe the 70-year-old is an anti-Semite.
