The following are excerpts from the Blabbermouth article posted earlier today (with slight edits):
“W.A.S.P. has recruited Brazilian drummer Aquiles Priester to sit behind the kit for the band’s “Re-Idolized – The Crimson Idol 25th Anniversary World Tour“, which is scheduled to kick off on September 25 in Gothenburg, Sweden….
Born in South Africa, Priester has collaborated with such bands and solo artists as Angra, Hangar, Midas Fate, Primal Fear, Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden), Tony MacAlpine and Vinnie Moore. He is also known for having participated in the widely talked-about Dream Theater drummer audition which took place after Mike Portnoy had left the band. It was after that event that Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci recommended Priester to another great guitar virtuoso, Tony MacAlpine.”
