Kim Monroe’s Music Minute April 12th

Now that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony is done, some of the nights most special moments are being shared on social media.  The one big question mark of the night was whether or not former Journey lead singer Steve Perry would perform with his former band but he did not.  Rush’s Geddy Lee joined Yes for a few songs and Pearl Jam performed “Rockin In The Free World” jam style, even though Neil Young had to cancel on the induction at the last minute due to illness.  The full event will be carried on HBO later this month.

Sometimes it’s all about who you know, however in the case of Tye Trujillo, he has the talent to back himself.  Tye is the 12 year old son of Metallica bassist Robert and he has been tapped to fill in on the South American leg of Korn’s tour.  The band’s bassist, Fieldy, had to pull out of this portion of the tour due to unforeseen circumstances.

Speaking of Metallica, a representative from the band who supposedly issued Metallica with a cease and desist letter regarding “Moth Into Flame,” said these reports are one hundred percent false!  Apparently someone claiming to own the rights to songs by the Opprobrium has been spreading “fake news.”
