"The Tour"

Details are out about the KISS/Motley Crue tour simply dubbed “The Tour.” They can be that brash in naming the trek without concern that it’ll be confused with any other summertime tour because it will be the biggest tour of the summer, without a doubt. KISS will be the ultimate headliners but fans will get their fill of Motley Crue as well. The three month long tour will make its way to St. Louis at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater August 27th. Tickets go on sale this Friday with pre-sale for KISS Army fan club members having first dibs today. By the way, just so you know … KISS was in full makeup during Tuesday’s press conference at the Roosevelt Hotel in LA. Watch the press conference video embedded below:


Manson & Depp are "Vain"

We learned about the new Marilyn Manson album Born Villain set to come out May 1st and the song “No Reflection” is streaming online. Now we’re learning that Manson and longtime friend Johnny Depp collaborated on a cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” where Depp sang lead vocals and also played drums. Can’t wait to hear that one!

Speaking of Jons

There are pics circulating of Korn front man Jonathan Davis visiting with troops at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. The singer hung out with injured soldiers, signed autographs and even took part in a bomb disposal course where he put on a bomb suit and other things. See more pics here

Ministry can count, kinda

Industrial black sheep metalers Ministry got a new tune making the rounds online that the Occupy Wall Street crowd may want to take up as their new anthem. It may also be appropriate for teaching your toddlers how to count. The song titled “99 Percenters” is the first single from Ministry’s new album Relapse which is due out March 26th.

Ministry - "99 Percenters"

Summertime studio time

The first Tool album in six years could get some studio time later this year, if drummer Danny Carrey has his say. In a three-part video feature uploaded by VicFirth.com, Carrey displays his mad drumming skills while the band performed in Boston earlier this year. He also talks about the beginnings of Tool and how the band goes about writing music. Watch the videos linked here: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

Mark your calendars

Shinedown will be on the Jimmy Kimmel Show Monday March 26th. Check your local listings.

Big tour announcement Tuesday

Well, just when you thought things couldn't get more out of hand, along comes the tour of a lifetime. Come Tuesday we're gonna get details on a tour featuring KISS and Motley Crue. The tour is reported be kick off July 19th and could last up to three months. Surely will be an arena/amphitheater tour ... I mean, come on ... it's KISS and Motley Crue! KISS members remained zip-lipped at last week's unveiling of the mini-golf course "KISS By Monster Mini Golf." But, Crue front man Vince Neil told his ex-girfriend (who also just so happens to work for the Las Vegas Sun) that the tour was gonna be the biggest tour of the summer without a doubt. By the way Leach was the one who accused Neil of hitting her last year. Strange how you can get a scoop these days. We'll let you know where the tour will be and when. Keep it with The Rock Station, 92.7 WQLZ!

New members, not slowing down

Several bands are getting a bit of a shake up and they're not letting it slow them down. Nonpoint recently brought on three new members from the band Inn Cinema. The one-time Florida natives can no longer claim The Sunshine State as their home as they now must mix that with some members from The Land of Lincoln--the three new members are from Chicago. The windy city also happens to be where the band is recording their new album. Their seventh attempt should be out later this year. In This Moment is also enjoying a bit of a new lineup ... and no guys (and some of you ladies out there), Maria Brink has not left the band. They're working on their fourth album after departing with their drummer and guitarist (who left the band to play backing to American Idol wanker James Durbin). Expect new In This Moment sometime this year. They recently performed the new tune "Blood" at Soundwave in Australia.

Saturday Session with Bishop

March 17, 2012

Podcast update

  • Professor Bill Kline joins the show to talk about Libertarianism - MP3 Download
  • Allan Stevo joins the show to talk about his new book and political action - MP3 Download

Show brief

Saturday Session is back live on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Listen to the show from 3 to 7p CST over the airwaves in central Illinois--970 AM or online at WMAY.com. Tonight: Treason at the Department of Defense, Liberty with Professor Bill Kline, political action for liberty with Alan Stevo and his book How to Win America for Ron Paul and the Cause of Freedom in 2012 and the disenfranchisement of Ron Paul.

Recognize treason when you hear it

A few weeks ago, new Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told members of congress that the Obama administration takes marching orders from foreign entities. We'll listen closely to what the Sec. Def. had to say and how the apologists continue to make excuses for an administration that has turned into a dictatorship. When is enough, enough? Sound off with Saturday Session by calling 217.629.7970.


Associate Professor at the University of Illinois, Springfield, Bill Kline joins the show to talk about libertarianism--what it is, what is not and how to live a life full of liberty. Who owns your body, your labor, your life? What are libertarians views of social matters? Does voting change anything? How is the state trying to limit liberty? And, do libertarians just want to legalize drugs and have anarchy? We'll delve into all these questions and more with your phone calls as Professor Kline joins the show live, in studio, at 4.

How to be politically active

The last time Allan Stevo joined Saturday Session, he was running for congress and helped shed light on the skewed ballot access laws in Illinois. It takes a substantially larger number of signatures for independent candidates than those who are running in the "established" parties. Today, Stevo joins Saturday Session to talk about his new book How to Win America for Ron Paul and the Cause of Freedom in 2012. We'll also talk about how to take strategies found in the book and translate them to other candidates and issues. That's coming up at 5:30 on Saturday Session.

Allan Stevo's bio:

"Allan Stevo has been involved in politics in Cook County, Illinois since the age of seven. He’s seen Chicago’s Democratic machine from the inside. In 2005, he was first introduced to Ron Paul’s writing. In 2007, he was active in Americans in Europe for Ron Paul and an organizer of the Strasbourg Tea Party. In 2008, he campaigned for Ron Paul in nine states before running for U.S. House of Representatives (IL-10) on Ron Paul’s platform. Stevo has spent a considerable amount of time living outside of the U.S. – travelling extensively, monitoring elections, and writing about others cultures. His writing has appeared widely in print and on the internet, both in the United States and internationally. He’s been published in places as diverse as Pravda, LewRockwell.com, and Danse Macabre.
Author of four books, this is his first on political strategy. He is 32 years old and makes his living as a full-time writer.

Allan is author of How to Win America for Ron Paul and the Cause of Freedom in 2012, which can be downloaded free of charge here - https://www.createspace.com/Preview/1096928 - or purchased at this link in print or as a Kindle - http://www.amazon.com/America-Paul-Cause-Freedom-2012/dp/1469988380/."

Disenfranchisement of voters

In case you missed it, Ron Paul made a stop in St. Charles, MO (watch video highlights here, here, and here, and here) and another stop at the U of I in Urbana-Champaign (Highlights here, and the entire thing here) we'll talk about them. Both events drew thousands of people to hear the GOP Presidential Candidate speak. Where was the mainstream press? They were busy covering the other candidates "crowded coffee house" appearances. The media is a joke!

Sid on the road

He’s the longtime spinster for Slipknot and for a while clubbed as DJ Starscream. Now that Sid Wilson has gone solo simply as Sid—taking on the role of vocals and producer—he’s making the rounds in interviews and headed out on the road. In less than a month Sid will be at The Castle Theater in Bloomington April 13th where he'll will bring his unique brand of tunes and crazy stage show antics alongside Killinois producer MonDope and Durt Russell of Subsequent Vibes. It’s not necessarily a rock show, but surely you’ll get the outcast-rock vibes from the event. Sid’s album is out now titled Sid.

Sid Talks Sid

Interview posted soon

The long-form interview with Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine was broadcast online last night via Infowars Nightly News … Did anyone catch it? As with most productions from Alex Jones, the video will be leaked online. Watch the YouTube Channel TheAlexJonesChannel for the upload.

Ribbon cut

It’s finally open! KISS has cut the ribbon on their miniature golf experience in Las Vegas. Well they didn’t really cut the ribbon ... they slashed it with a sword. And they didn’t get the red carpet treatment as the carpet was the deepest color black you can find on planet earth. Video of the grand opening is available online (watch below).
