Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
It’s a family reunion of sorts—but not everyone’s gonna be there. Korn’s Fieldy and former guitarist Brian “Head” Welch are hitting the stage together for the first time in six years. But, it won’t be to perform music. Rather, the two will talk faith and religion. This will take place during The Whosoevers' "Threat To Formalized Religion…I Am" conference in Diamond Bar, California. The Whosoevers are a coalition of rock stars that want to spread happiness, hope and love around the world. Head left Korn nearly 7 years ago saying he was a born again Christian. Fieldy as well is a born again Christian but decided to stay with the band. Find out more about the conference online at TheWhosoevers.com
Trouble in paradise
There are some signs of a serious dysfunction among the Limp Bizkit family. Apparently drummer Jon Otto and DJ Lethal have become a bit estranged from the band and they came out public saying they may get the ax. In a series of Tweets, Lethal said “From what I understand, Fred doesn't approve of our lifestyle which includes partying and fun.” After fans showed their displeasure, guitarist Wes Borland came out trying to explain the possible changeup. Borland said on Twitter that fans do “not have the information needed to form valid opinions on the situation” and he’s not gonna be the one to make it public. Borland also says to get off Fred’s back because it’s a band decision, not solely Fred’s. It’s unclear what the future holds for the band as they just signed a record deal with no word yet on when a new album may surface.
