Lordi Splits With Drummer Kita

Lordi has issued the following announcement about splitting with drummer Kita:

"It is our unfortunate task to inform that Kita is no longer a member of Lordi. Kita has made a decision to pursue his own career publicly as himself, without his alter ego Kita. This is in direct conflict with one of the cornerstones of Lordi’s image. Therefore it is not possible for him to continue as a member of the band anymore.

"Lordi will continue as always, masked and costumed, consisting of monster personas. Also, the upcoming tour will happen as planned. We thank Kita for the years he has been an important part of the band and our successes and wish him all the best in his future."

That seems a little ridiculous. I don't think that is a fireable offence.

Awww, crap! Kita is one of my favorite drummers. Even with all those pounds of costume, he still manages to drum the hell out of a drumset. I wish him the best, perhaps he will focus on SO.

I am looking forward to Lordi's next drummer. I wonder what character he/she will be.

I've heard that the newest drummer for Lordi goes by the name of Otus. He kinda looks like a lost relative of Amen, without bandages, and a sash. I CANT BELIEVE KITA LEFT! (whines)
