Supergroup Disbands Before Playing Together
The supergroup GreatWhiteSnakeLionZombie, largely composed of individuals from disbanded 80’s hair metal bands, has decided to break up before ever playing a gig or recording together. Apparently, a debate sparked from within the group after small clubs were prohibited from allowing pyrotechnics around the country.
David Coverdale, formerly of Whitesnake, commented on situation that resulted in the breakup.
“There had been some personality issues along the way, but the pyrotechnics thing was the final straw. No pyro? The clubs we play are too small for a good light show, so what’s left? Pyro was the last bit of entertainment we had. Now what are we gonna do up there?”
(ed. well, there's always the Axl Shuffle.)
John Ricci, one-time guitarist for White Zombie and second guitar for GreatWhiteSnakeLionZombie had this to say:
“I thought it was a long shot with these guys, but I didn’t have a lot going on. I guess it’s for the best. I kinda felt like the odd-dude out. I mean, these guys all had egos like they were still in the heyday of glam-metal back in the 80’s. But when it all comes crashing down over some cheesy fireworks…I thought this was about the music or something. But it was always about the glam and re-living the 80’s. Where’s the glam in doing gigs in shitty little dirt holes day after day across the country? At least I don’t have to wear any makeup or worry about my hair now.”
The band’s first single was to be “Wait, Here I Go Again Babe I’m Gonna Leave You (The Agony).” A remix of their first album was also planned. There was talk of Rob Zombie producing the remix album, but all members were strongly against him producing any of their videos. One band member wishing to remain anonymous said “We don’t want to look like a bunch of nasty fucking horror monsters! Do you have any idea how long I spend on my hair every morning?”
In related news, Great White has reportedly resumed touring again.
