S.O.D. Bassist DANNY LILKER: The Band Is Over

May 29, 2002

Despite S.O.D. frontman Billy Milano's well-publicized attempts to resurrect the group with an all-new line-up following the "firing" of guitarist Scott Ian and drummer Charlie Benante, there will be no further recordings or live appearances from the band, according to bassist Danny Lilker.

"I spoke with Bill, and he is no longer going to attempt to put together any version of [S.O.D.] without all the original members, and since he and Charlie have both decided never to play with each other again due to all the recent shit-slinging, the band is over," Lilker wrote in a posting on ANTHRAX's official message board. "This is not an Ozzy-esque trick—we're not gonna do a 'final' tour ('This is the last time you'll get a chance to see us ever, so make sure and go!'—that Sharon is a crafty bitch),if you never saw S.O.D. you never will. Sgt. D will be going to Valhalla with the rest of the dead warriors. Adios amigos, and thanks for all the support, it was greatly appreciated."
