Ex-DAMAGEPLAN Vocalist Comments On Possibility Of Singing Over New DIMEBAG Recordings

October 10, 2005

Former DAMAGEPLAN frontman Patrick Lachman has commented on a recent interview with ex-PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul in which the brother of late PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott discusses the possibility of one day releasing the demo recordings that Dimebag had been working on prior to his death.

Asked by Guitar World magazine if those DAMAGEPLAN demos ever see the light of day, Vinnie said, "Right now I'm still too flipped out to even go in the studio. I've been down there a time or two and it just wigs me completely out. But I guarantee you at some point I will do something with those tracks. Either I'll have some of Dime's favorite singers sing on 'em and turn them into jams, or maybe Pat will sing on them and it'll be 'Damageplan II'. I don't know yet. Right now they're magic that hopefully someday everybody will get to hear, and as long I'm around, I think eventually they will get heard."

Writing to the message board of his new band, THE MERCY CLINIC, Lachman said of the possibility that he may be asked to contribute his vocals to the unfinished Dimebag recordings, "That decision, my friends, is not in my hands..."

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, THE MERCY CLINIC also features in its ranks guitarists Brian Harrah (PROFESSIONAL MURDER MUSIC) and Josh Stinson (DRIST),bassist Steed Najera (TRIPLE SEVEN),and drummer Bevan Davies (DANZIG, COMES WITH THE FALL, JERRY CANTRELL). The group, who are currently unsigned, have demoed over an album's worth of material, including such cuts as "Numb" (mp3),"Drag Me Under", "We're Only Human", "The Day the Sun Refused to Shine", "Let It Burn" and "Can I Become Me?"
