Seems strange that Pepper would be obligated to Down but Kirk Windstein can still do Crowbar and Kingdom Of Sorrow, plus Jimmy Bower is doing Eyehategod again, Rex Brown has a new band called Arms Of The Sun and Phil Anselmo is doing a solo album. Maybe they just wanted to go back to the hardcore sound of COC before Pepper was a member.

Add to that the fact that Kirk (who as much as I LOVE crowbar) is in the Phil camp lock stock and barrel along with Rex, Pepper is the only one i'd put a "franchise tag" on.

Oz: "Francihze tag" is a Yank way of saying "I own him" for said length of time as determined by the contract. Kirk and Rex are down for whatever Phil wants to do when he wants to do it. Just One Man's Opinion again... I'm not speaking from known facts, but if I was Phil, that's the way i'd play that hand. Pepper is the only one I wouldn't let freelance.

G0ddammit, a NC band not playing any NC shows! WTF?! Pepper was responsible for the best material of this groups career, so I'd skip it even if my chicken-sh!t-stenching NC was hosting. Fu(k it.

No Pepper because the are touring the early 'thrash era' material with the original line-up. Pepper didn't join COC until nearly 10 years into their existence. I for one dig both incarnations.. I saw COC on the Deliverance tour and they ruled.. and seeing the original thrash material will be awesome too. I'm glad Pepper isn't trying to sing on the old tunes.. the vocals are so unique and sick on the Animosity material only Mike Dean could pull it off authentically.
