Monster Magnet Guitarist, Ed Mundell Quits

Monster Magnet has announced that longtime guitarist Ed Mundell has decided to leave the band after eighteen years. A message from frontman Dave Wyndorff reads as follows:

"After 18 years Ed's left Monster Magnet for 'personal reasons.' What can I say? He told me this two months ago and I gave him some time for him to perhaps reconsider but no go. It's a bummer, yeah but we've been through this kind of thing before. Make no mistake, Magnet goes on. We start the Mastermind tour tonight in Cologne, Germany with Phil Caivano and Garrett Sweeny handling duel guitar chores.

"I'd like to thank Ed for the immense talent he's brought to the band over the years and wish him good luck in whatever he decides to do next.

"Good luck Ed, we'll miss you!"

That's a shame. Ed was a great guitarist and a real asset to the Monster Magnet lineup. I wonder where he'll go.
