Philip H. Anselmo Comments On Filling in For
Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams at GWAR B-Q ’16!
It seems Mike IX Williams, unfortunately, will be unable to join us for GWAR B-Q on August 20th, as planned, but don’t worry, because the legendary PHILIP H. ANSELMO is making the trek to Richmond to front EYEHATEGOD before the rabid masses! As your Lords and Masters were seasoning Anselmo to serve as tasty shred for the almighty meat grinder, he had this to say, “When our brothers in one of New Orleans’ most influential music outfits needs me, I’m there, 1000%. There is no secret that I adore my brethren in Eyehategod, as I’ve always supported them through thick and thin. This present situation will be no different. In light of Michael D. William’s health issues, which he needs to address more importantly than any other point in his life, and should be respected by anyone with a heart, I will do my best to fill in for him. Those are mighty big shoes to fill, but I shall do my best, once again. I do believe I speak on behalf of the concerned parties when I state that we ALL NEED Mike IX Williams to heal, recover, and get better ASAP. These gigs are NOT about me; it is about keeping the obligations of EHG so, as a band and force, they are able to stay true to their commitments to these two gigs. My admiration of Mike and all his works, especially EHG, knows zero boundaries, hence, me doing these gigs. Here’s to Mike’s recovery, and here’s to supporting these shows on his behalf. Much love to everyone.”
In response, Mike IX was heard throughout the interweb thingy saying, “Phil has my full blessing for these shows and, with all forces willing, I will return to the stage as soon as I am physically able.”
GWAR wishes Mike IX a speedy recovery and look forward to the day they can shove him into the grinder! The Intergalactic Lords had been looking forward to that! Get your tickets to this HISTORIC EVENT at http://gwarbq.com/tickets.
