Nevermore Members Quit Without Any Warning
It came as quite a surprise and disappointment to Nevermore fans when it was revealed that Jeff Loomis and Van Williams, the band's guitarist and drummer respectively, left the group. While it was originally released that the members' departure was a mutual decision, according to it looks like they left without even telling anyone. In an interview with Rock Overdose, vocalist Warrel Dane made it clear that he did not know that Loomis and Williams were quitting the band. "I didn't know they were quitting till I read about it", Dane claimed. "And that's not the way you treat your friends. It was really sh-tty. We could have talked." "I'm still very upset about the way it happened. It's like going through a really painful divorce. I couldn't give a sh-t about our drummer because we never got along anyway. But Jeff was one of my best friends." Dane also commented on how finding replacements was going, mentioning that Nevermore likely has a new drummer but that it will be more difficult to find a guitarist capable of filling Loomis' shoes. "I think we have a new drummer but I'm still deciding. Replacing Jeff is hard so it's going to be a slow process. I will not replace him until I find the perfect guitar player: someone who can write songs and play solos." "I'm still hurting over the way things fell apart but you pick yourself up and focus on the moment."
