Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
With or without
Friday we told you that the Black Sabbath reunion and the first album from them in years could be in jeopardy as original drummer Bill Ward (pictured to the right) demands some respect as the original drummer. Well, he must have ticked someone off ‘cause now the band says they’re gonna move on, with or without him. A quote from the other members says “We have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open.” Ward, sounding like an AFSCME employee, said last week he wanted a fairer contract that would recognize him as the a rock musician. He says it’s not about money, it’s about respect.
Sold out shows
While a bunch of dudes wearing tights were running after balls on a field with a hundred million people gazing at them, the most notorious band in the world was playing to a sold out crowd in Sin City. Motley Crue has opened up their residency in Las Vegas with a sold out weekend! The hair band legends have gone the way of retired lounge singers and took a series of regular shows performing in the most notorious city in the world. This weekend was the first weekend of shows for the Crue and they packed ‘em, just as they were expecting. The shows will continue every night, except Mondays and Thursdays, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas until February 19th.
