A Perfect Circle Lose Drummer Josh Freese
Drummer Josh Freese has quit A Perfect Circle after 13 years. The split doesn't sound amicable Freese insists he has "no plans of returning" according to a tweet below. That means the band will need to recruit someone new before their single scheduled show on December 29 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Last year Puscifer drummer Jeff Friedl covered for Freese, putting him at the top of a list of rumored replacements. The current lineup of the supergroup consists of Tool singer Maynard James Keenan, guitarist Billy Howerdel, former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha and bassist Matt McJunkins. At least Freese got a chance to take part in their North American tour last summer which was their first for six years. Meanwhile, it is assumed he will continue to drum for Weezer, Devo and Sublime. The band currently has no record deal, but will have no problem being signed up when they have new music ready for release. Will you miss Freese's drumming on their records, or do you welcome new drumming blood? Let us know your reaction in the comments.
