ILL NINO have reportedly dropped off the remaining dates on the SOULFLY U.S. tour following an altercation between current SOULFLY guitarist Marc Rizzo (ex-ILL NINO) and ILL NINO frontman Cristian Machado after the two bands' joint appearance in Royal Oak, MI this past Sunday (Sept. 5). According to several eyewitness accounts, the fight erupted as a result of onstage remarks made by Machado denouncing bands with "rock star" attitudes — comments which were believed to have been directed at SOULFLY. Rizzo reportedly confronted Machado behind the club's backstage area where the ILL NINO bus was parked and physically attacked the singer until the two were separated. An official statement from Roadrunner Records regarding the matter is expected later today (Sept. 8). One fan's unsubstantiated account of what transpired Sunday night can be found at this location. Cristian's version of the incident (as reported by a friend) can be found here.

Soulfly's album, I think, was kick a$$!!! Then something happened and I, personally, don't like what they have to offer anymore. But Sepultura is still fukkin' good as hell. A friend of mine was supposed to go to the show at Bogarts. He had backstage passes to 'Twelve Tribes'. I don't know if he ended up going or not though. Again, a bunch of bullsh**e that probably no one cares about, but thought I'd put it out. Later all!!!
