Not Next Year, Beats Launches Next Month, Network TV Gig, and Role in Horror Movie

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


Not next year


If you’re looking to head to Metallica’s Orion Music + More Festival next year, think again. Organizers for the multi-day festival are taking the year off. Orion had been held in June the past few years, but that just so happens to be when Metallica will be overseas during a European tour. A spokesperson tells Detroit media that the festival may return in 2015, but it’s unclear where it will be held. The festival was first held in Atlantic City and then was in Detroit. It’s unclear where it will be held next.


Beats launches next month


Move over Spotify, Rhapsody and Rdio … the music service that Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor provided input for is nearing a launch. A press release from the company’s CEO says that after testing and feedback the service is locked, loaded, and ready for a launch next month. You can actually go to the website right now and secure your username. Beats is a spin from Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre.


Network TV gig


Move over Brad Pitt, Bret Michaels is ready to hit the silver screen … well not quite that big, but he’ll still be featured in a network TV show that isn’t some stupid reality crap. The Poison front man will play a version of himself on the NBC sci-fi drama Revolution. The gist is, he’ll be on the show to perform an acoustic version of “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Isn’t he getting sick of that song? Anyway … that episode is set to air some time next year.


Role in horror movie


Slipknot/Stone Sour front man Corey Taylor is set to make his first appearance in a movie. The film Fear Clinic is in production and is based off the horror series FearNet where Freddie Kurger actor Robert Englund will play a “fear doctor” who tries to treat patients with severe phobias. Taylor’s role will be that of an employee at the doctor’s clinic who struggles to maintain control when all hell breaks loose. Sounds like he’ll get more than just a cameo! There’s an expected release date around Halloween next year. Like the Fear Clinic Facebook page to keep up to date.
