Madball fires drummer Jay Weinberg
Madball has apparently dismissed drummer Jay Weinberg amidst the band's Canadian tour. As you may recall, Weinberg joined the band a few months ago. Frontman Freddy Cricien had the following to say: "I'm letting Jay go in Canada because I just feel he doesn't represent this band well on a character level. It would go against my own code of ethics to keep him around. Not saying he's a bad drummer. I won't take that away from him. But the reality is - he has a lot to learn about paying dues, and about life in general. Granted, he is a kid, but I'm not sure that he'll ever be built for this particular lifestyle. I wish him the best of luck, but the Madball machine rolls on!" A replacement drummer will reportedly be announced soon.
