Below is our complete Dead By Wednesday news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Due to personal reasons, guitarist Ross Ragusa has chosen to amicably part ways with Connecticut based metal band Dead by Wednesday.
Ross states, "I love my brothers in DBW, I wish them nothing but success, as they deserve it for the years of hard work they put into this project. This was the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life. But the road has done serious damage to my back and neck, so I need to step away to get healthy, pursue an education in music, and come out strong to become the musician I was born to be."
As hard as it was for the rest of the band to hear this, the show must go on, and the remaining band members wish him nothing but the best. Drummer Opus comments: "Although we will miss Ross on many different levels, we look forward to the the excitement and possibilities of working with some new energy and flesh blood. We don't care how long it takes for our search, but hopefully our 'Randy Rhodes' will walk through the door."
DBW will be holding national auditions for a replacement guitarist. All candidates must be pro and willing to tour. According to the band, “To be considered, you must be as good or better than Mr. Ross Ragusa. If you think you got what it takes, and are serious about your career, email Omindsnap@aol.com.” More...
