Soulfly's Max Cavalera says guitarist Marc Rizzo was fired


Several days ago it came to light that Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo had parted ways with the band after 18 years together. Soulfly frontman and founder Max Cavalera has now revealed that Rizzo was fired for "personal reasons."

Commenting on the matter during a new episode of his Internet video series "Max Trax," Cavalera had the following to say about Rizzo's departure:

"So right now, for the tribe, I wanna address something that is going on with Soulfly. Of course, it's about Marc Rizzo. He did not leave the band. We decided to part ways with him due to personal reasons. I wish Marc the best on his career. I wanna thank Marc for the 18 years with Soulfly. I'm very excited that we're bringing our friend Dino [Cazares] to play guitar for us on the next U.S. tour. The show must go on."
