QUEENSRŸCHE frontman Todd La Torre wore a METAL CHURCH t-shirt during his band’s July 30 performance at the 68th annual Dubuque County Fair in Dubuque, Iowa in honor of METAL CHURCH singer Mike Howe who passed away earlier this week. After the show, La Torre posted a photo of him sporting the shirt, and he included the following message: “Proudly wearing my legit 1989 METAL CHURCH tour shirt, with a special dedication to our dear friend Mike Howe. You were there in spirit”. When Howe‘s death was first announced, La Torre took to his social media to write: “No words to say on this one. Just conversed with him less than a week ago. My heart hurts for this profound loss. A true legend, kind soul, and a personal friend.” Back in 2017, METAL CHURCH released a new studio version of the song “Fake Healer” that featured a duet with La Torre. When the track was first made available, La Torre said: “Having been a fan of METAL CHURCH since my early teens, never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined that the great Mike Howe would rejoin the band! Getting the opportunity to record a duet to the track ‘Fake Healer’ was beyond amazing!” Howe was found dead at his home in Eureka, California on Monday, July 26. According to TMZ, Howe‘s official cause of death was determined to be asphyxia due to hanging. A spokesperson for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Dept. told the site authorities are calling it a suicide. TMZ stated that cops in Eureka got a call just after 10 a.m. on Monday reporting an unexpected death at a home. By the time deputies arrived, they found the 55-year-old dead at the scene. According to police, drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the death and no controlled substances or paraphernalia were located at the scene. Howe, who fronted METAL CHURCH from 1988 until 1994, officially rejoined the band in April 2015. Prior to joining METAL CHURCH more than three decades ago, Howe spent two years fronting California metal act HERETIC.

HALESTORM was officially inducted into the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall Of Fame during the band’s July 30 performance at the at the York State Fair in York, Pennsylvania. Over the years, Central Pennsylvania has produced some incredible and accomplished musicians who have influenced generations of music lovers. In 2019, the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall Of Fame was founded as a nonprofit organization to recognize, support, and grow the area’s longstanding and diverse music heritage. HALESTORM is one of the most successful hard rock acts from the state. Lzzy Hale and her brother Arejay Hale began performing locally when they were just 13 and 10, respectively. Formed in Red Lion in 1997, HALESTORM signed with Atlantic Records in 2005. They won a Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” for the song “Love Bites (So Do I)” in 2013, becoming the first female-fronted band to win in that category, and they continue to tour persistently (2020 excluded), sometimes up to 250 days a year. Lzzy Hale is the first female in the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall Of Fame. “We are so honored and excited to be inducted into the 2021 class of the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall Of Fame. Thank you so much to everybody that helped raise us and launch us into where we are today. We will see you all on the other side,” Lzzy Hale said. HALESTORM played its first concert in almost two years on July 16 at The Basement East in Nashville, Tennessee. The band has spent the last few months recording its new album for a tentative late 2021 release. The LP’s first single will arrive later this month. HALESTORM‘s latest release was last year’s “Halestorm Reimagined”, a collection of the band’s reworked original songs as well as a cover of “I Will Always Love You”, the love ballad made famous by Whitney Houston and Dolly Parton. POISON was inducted as part of the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall Of Fame‘s inaugural class last year.
