No plans for Trixter band members to reunite as no management to remedy rift between two sides
More than two years ago, Trixter lead vocalist Pete Loran and drummer Mark Gus Scott started a new Facebook page for the band given that they were being shut out from the original Trixter Facebook account.
The following message was posted by Loran on the new Trixter Facebook page back on October 30, 2017:
In case some of you are wondering, Mark Gus Scott and I recently started this Official: Trixter Facebook page. The reason for that is, for over a year, neither one of us have been “allowed” access to the other page.
So if one of us wants to get a message out there, or share a photo on the page that we both built up for years, we can’t. But now, we can. Please go hit the “like” button for us! We have some exciting things in store for 2018, so follow the new page for upcoming info!
A few days later, the new Trixter Facebook page announced that Trixter guitarist Steve Brown and bassist P.J. Farley were going to be playing with Mr. Big frontman Eric Martin as the following Facebook message on November 2, 2017 indicated:
“The Official Trixter page would like to wish congratulations to Steve and PJ on their new endeavor, being the backing band for Eric Martin of Mr. Big…Best of luck guys.”
Trixter drummer Mark Gus Scott was recently interviewed a second time by Chuck Shute for the Chuck Shute Podcast and the drummer spoke about how very good management helped the Trixter band members from avoiding conflicts in the early days.
Scott was asked whether there was any chance of Trixter‘s classic line-up getting back together for shows to which he replied: “I’m going to be honest with you. There are no plans for, for the original line-up to get back [together].” Scott added: “Unfortunately not now, but that’s not to say. We’ll see what happens.”
Following Sleaze Roxx‘s article yesterday about how Trixter‘s very good management helped the band members avoid conflicts in the early days, Trixter fans mentioned the rift between the two sides of Loran / Scott and Brown / Farley (see Facebook posts below) to which Scott replied, “No management.”
