3 Inches Of Blood fires drummer

According to Classic Rock magazine, 3 Inches Of Blood has ousted drummer Alexei Rodriguez in the wake of an apparent altercation with Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler over the weekend. Classic Rock has posted the following apology from the band: "Dear Nigel and Saxon, On behalf of all the members of 3 Inches Of Blood we would like to express the utmost regret and sincere apology regarding the actions of our drummer, Alexei Rodriguez, that occurred in Minehead in the early hours of November 10. In no way were Alexei's actions a reflection of our band. Needless to say we were completely shocked and horrified to learn about these events and are grateful that Saxon was still able to perform. We have complete respect for Saxon as a band and as individuals and would never want anyone's livelihood as a musician to be jeopardised for any reason. Alexei's behaviour was appalling and completely unacceptable and it is our decision to immediately remove him from the band. We would like to attempt to repair the damage that has been caused and hope that you will not think of 3 Inches Of Blood as a band that habitually acts in such inappropriate ways. Thank you for taking the time to read this and continuing to make great music. Sincerely, Cam Pipes, Justin Hagberg, Shane Clark, Nick Cates and Jamie Hooper"

kenwregget 11/12/2007 3:48:11 PM

Alexei was the only good part of this band. HE WAS IN CATHARSIS AND TRIAL, AND THEREFORE HAS MORE CREDIBILITY AND METAL IN HIS BLOOD THAN ANY OF THESE VANCOUVER POSERS.


kenwregget 11/12/2007 3:50:55 PM

p.s. way to stand by the drummer who has bent over backwards for your shit Priest cover band.


jim_dangle 11/12/2007 3:53:21 PM

Forever_True 11/12/2007 4:07:32 PM

Dingleberry is a gay and Catharsis is better off dead and buried. Bunch of PC fruits. In regards to this 3 Inches of Blood crap, what a bunch of spineless douchebag ass-kissers


Biff_Webster 11/12/2007 4:18:50 PM

Are they honestly sucking the dcks of Saxon? It's not like frickin Saxon has any kind of metal cred (cue some 30 year old in a Motorhead vest telling me I don't know shit)


snes 11/12/2007 4:26:53 PM

anyone who has known alexei for more than 10 minutes knows his inheret set of problems

jimbo 11/12/2007 5:17:18 PM

truthsayer 11/12/2007 5:01:12 PM "Forever_True = Chubby Fresh? You be the judge..." I was about to make a similar joke, you win. take note that he loes chokehold though, 'him no can read lyrics.'


kenwregget 11/12/2007 5:27:23 PM

Doesn't change the fact that he's an amazing drummer, and needs to be back in business asap.


snes 11/12/2007 5:42:07 PM
