Singer Jay Cee no longer in American Bombshell and now retired from “band scene” & doing live music
In rather shocking announcements in the last few hours, American Bombshell have lost their lead vocalist Jay Cee who has reportedly elected to retire from the “band scene” and from doing live music.
The following message was posted on Jay Cee‘s Facebook page (under the name Jef Conn) yesterday:
“HEAR YE! HEAR YE! i am gonna make the announcement myself. I am no longer the singer/front guy for American Bombshell. I have left of my own accord and have no bad vibes or personal issues with the current band line up (but they arent to happy with me). i am OFFICIALLY RETIRED from the band scene and doing live music. i appreciate everyones love and support for all my years of doing the art of music and band, but i have decided it is time for me to step out of the scene. some people are lifers, i have discovered that i am not. i have been in a band since i was 15… never NOT been in a band since then, but the flame has died and the fire is gone and there is nothing as cold as ashes after the fire is gone and i just dont feel it anymore. i wish everyone in the current American Bombshell lineup the best, i know they will keep killing it, as for me, candles out! see ya all around.”
This was followed by American Bombshell‘s Facebook post, which states:
“As some of you may have seen, Jay Cee has elected to retire from music. We wish him the best, and will always appreciate the amazing times and countless miles while we shared the stage. We are already prepped and ready to honor the shows we have scheduled, and will also be announcing more dates in the near future. Thanks again for all of your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you August 1st at the HIFi Annex with Buckcherry!”
Earlier this month, Sleaze Roxx had just announced that American Bombshell had two new members — bassist David “DJ” Jones and guitarist Slick Mick — with Jay Cee, drummer Jason Carr and guitarist Andrew “Nix” Nixon rounding out the line-up. Cee has played on American Bombshell‘s two records — their debut album No Regrets which finished at #6 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top 10 Albums of 2016 and their sophomore album Tattooed ‘N Bruised which was voted to the #4 position on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2019.
