Former PARADISE LOST Drummer Thanks Fans, Outlines Future Plans

March 23, 2004

Former PARADISE LOST drummer Lee Morris has issued a message to the group's fans thanking them for their support over the years and outlining his plans for the immediate future. His statement reads as follows:

"I want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the great people that have supported me through my time with [PARADISE LOST]. You guys and girls have always made me feel welcome and it's always been my pleasure to be able to speak with as many of you as I could. If I ever failed to give any of you enough time, then I apologise.

"I think I am still a little bit in shock myself at the moment as this has been my life for the last 9 years, but I can promise you all that I will be back (not with MARSHALL LAW though, Jon!!). I have never lost my passion for music and drumming and this new-found freedom has really filled me with a determination and drive to want to succeed again.

"For the moment I'm going to concentrate on going back to teaching drums and try to get involved in as many sessions and projects as possible, as I've played one style for a long time now and I really need to creatively branch out before I settle on one project.

"I want to ask you all to respect the band's decision and not pry into all the details, as this is something that is between the band and myself. There is no need to get into a big debate to try to see who is at fault here. There has been fault on both sides, so let's keep these memories happy.

"Well I want to leave you all for now with a lot of love, peace and respect and I will see you all again. The grin will be back!!! See ya!!!!"
