Former CANCER Guitarist Pays Tribute To VOIVOD's PIGGY

August 31, 2005

Former CANCER guitarist Rob Engvikson (currently in DANELAW) has issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:

"I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Denis 'Piggy' D'Amour from VOIVOD. VOIVOD is a band I've always loved from the early days of 'Rrroooaaarrr' and right through to 'Voivod', especially Piggy's awesome guitar playing style. With them 'dischords,' as I call them, he really did have a style of his own. I could recognise his playing instantly. I was really looking forward to the next VOIVOD epic. Hopefully we will still get to hear his latest recordings, as a tribute to the great man himself. Sadly, I never got to see the band live. They were due to play at a thrash festival in Leeds back in the '80s, but sadly they got held up in customs and never made the gig.

"My condolences to his family, friends, and fellow bandmembers. May he roam the stars, and haunt President X-D."
