Greetings from PERTH AUSTRAILIA! I am pleased to announce the brand new drummer we have on tour with us at this time is none other than JASON WEST & he is kicking ASS all over the kit! Jason is the drummer for the bands ‘Neurotica’ & ‘Pit Bull Daycare’. He was turned onto me through the illustrious Johnny Chromatic. He is doing a great job filling some big shoes.

As you know, Bobby Jarzombek, my drummer for last 3 years & also the drummer on the new cd ‘Angel Down’ recently broke his wrist & we did not know if we could find a drummer of equal caliber for the summer tour. I am happy to report that Jason West is a FANTASTIC drummer & the last show in Tokyo, was especially ferocious!! It was at Koseinenkin Kaikan, where Judas Priest recorded the ultimate live album “Unleashed In The East” , & we all felt the presence of that record during the show, & played a show that will go down as one of the best of our lives!
