Faith No More Talk About Jim Martin-less Reunion
The 2009 lineup has been reported as follows: Mike Bordin - Drums * Roddy Bottum - Keyboards * Bill Gould - Bass * Jon Hudson - Guitar * Mike Patton - Vocals.
Bassist Bill Gould issued a statement to Blabbermouth.net that said in part: "Faith No More has always stood out as some sort of unique beast; part dog, part cat — its music almost as schizophrenic as the personalities of its members. When it all worked, it worked really well, even if the chemistry was always volatile.
"Throughout our 17 years of existence, the mental and physical energy required to sustain this creature was considerable and relentless. Though amicable enough, when we finally split, we all followed paths seemingly destined to opposite ends of the universe. Yet during the entire 10 years that have passed since our decision to break up we've experienced constant rumors and requests from fans and promoters alike. Nevertheless, for whatever reason, none of us kept in regular touch, much less to discuss any possibilities of getting together.
"What's changed is that this year, for the first time, we've all decided to sit down together and talk about it. And what we've discovered is that time has afforded us enough distance to look back on our years together through a clearer lens and made us realize that through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right." - Read the rest of his statement here and more info on what happened with Jim Martin
