Devildriver Bassist Jonathan Miller "Freaked Out" By Recent Bassist Deaths

Former Devildriver bassist Jonathan Miller recently left Devildriver after nine years of service, but did not provide a concrete reason for his departure. Sources close to the musician say that he's simply "freaked out by all of the recent bassist deaths" and was growing paranoid that he was next.

A friend of Miller, who wished to remain anonymous, commented: "It's best for everyone that he decided to leave the band. He's become completely obsessed with the news and paranoid that he is next in the line of recent bassist deaths. He thinks it's 'his turn.' Maybe it's a good thing...it's scared him into taking action to get himself better. I hope it does anyway. He's also quit playing bass and dedicated himself to learning drums to avoid 'the curse'."

Last year Miller ended up in the ICU on his birthday and missed the subsequent tour with Devildriver.

Kinda odd when you think about it but it kinda makes sense why he'd be worried. A lot of bass players have been dying lately.. I don't think it's connected to anything though unless some crazy bastard is going around murdering people lol. Which is highly unlikely in this case. Ahh well, maybe like the guy is right, that's it's best for the band and stuff. Whatever.
