RIP Wolfmother

I am a member of the Wolfmother mailing list. Today I received an email that said:

"Grammy Award winning rock band Wolfmother has announced the resignation of bass/keyboard player Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett effective immediately.

Singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale now plans to find other musicians over coming months and to then begin making a new Wolfmother album."

LAME! This new band will not be Wolfmother. Wolfmother is dead. I have to say I'm pretty bummed. I saw them twice in concert. I very much enjoyed their sound and style. Mike Wills was right about the sustainability of the band.

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not mad about Andrew starting a new band. I just think he needs to acknowledge that it is a new band. Maybe we could call it Wolfmother 2.0? But then would that insinuate that Chris and Myles were bugs that were removed?

As a final tribute to yet another one album wonder band here is a little revisit to a video from my past:

Blast From the Past III

This blast from the past is a memory from childhood instead of a picture of me. (Sorry if anyone was hoping for another mullet picture.) I was singing this in the shower this morning and wifey started laughing. Turns out that she watched Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers too.
