Former Hades Guitarist Comments On Overkill's New Drumme

Former HADES guitarist Dan Lorenzo sent the following message to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"So I'm sitting in South Beach on vacation and I see word is out that my friend Ron Lipnicki is now playing drums for OVERKILL. I'm reading the posts and steam is coming out of my ears.

"First off...I won't get into why Tim [Mallare] is not currently on tour with them. I'll let Blitz [OVERKILL singer] and DD [Verni, OVERKILL bassist] answer that.

"Blitz told me last Friday that they needed a drummer so I recommended the best drummer in metal — Ron Lipnicki. Ron didn't even have a pasport until yesterday, the day he left for his first European tour.

"Trust me, though — Ron pisses on just about anybody you've seen play drums. He's not good...he's on another level. He hits harder and has better timing than 90 percent of the top-name drummers.

"A couple years ago after Ron went through his first five days in a row of chemotherapy, he told me he wanted to jam! This kid is one tough motherfucker. He's a super-nice kid too, cancer free for two years. Go see him play...then you tell me who you think is better on drums than Ron."
