“BREAKING NEWS… Along with Patrick Wilson, I will no longer be affiliated with Emphatic. We had a good run. It should have been way more than what it was. Damage is one of the best rock albums released in the past 10 years and I’m honored to have been involved. Getting to do a last tour with Patrick was at least one hell of a way to go out. I’m am so thankful for Jeff Blue, Steve Robertson, and everyone at Atlantic. They made this happen for me and hope they keep me involved. I’m seasoned, hungry, and ready for real success.Who would like to see Patrick and I carry on together? Possibly with a certain drummer *COUGH* Dylan Wood… and what about that other rock star Creighton Taylor Bibbs??? I know another dude who can slapadabass real good. Can you say SUPERGROUP?!Not sure what will happen, but I am not going to let this be the end of my journey. Thanks to the fans who support me and will continue to be my support. I love you guys!
Time to get to work on my own material, and getting back to the shredding I used to do…”
“BREAKING NEWS… Patrick Wilson has left the band due to personal reasons. Patrick will be missed but the show must go on. We are moving forward working on a new record set for release early 2013.
