Masterplan Parts Ways With Vocalist

The German metal band Masterplan has parted ways with vocalist Mike DiMeo. Mike issued the following year-end recap message that also includes his confirmation of leaving the band:

"Hey Guys, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to everyone that writes me here and give a quick update…. 2008 was a great year with a lot of cool shows around the states with Tommy James and another great tour with Bonnie Tyler around North America. I had the chance to work with a lot of amazing musicians… The Groove Kings were joined by John Scofield at one of our live gigs one night!! That was cool…I did some really cool session work and have a bunch of releases slated for 2009 of which I am really looking forward to… One of them is with Australian band “Ilium” and I am really happy with how it turned out… I also do want to confirm that I am no longer working with the Masterplan guys…..although I have nothing but profound respect for them and continue to wish them nothing but success in the future…

Also my friend Lips emailed me from the band “ANVIL” and told me about a documentary that was made about his band.. He posted a link here on my page and it seems really cool… I look forward to seeing it and it seems that it would be a really cool thing to watch for anyone interested in the music bizz.. and also to support the guys in anyway way possible because they rock!! Well 2009 is here and I look forward to it and wish everyone has a great and successful year and hope to talk to you all again soon!!!"
