Rigor Mortis Will Never Play Again Following Mike Scaccia's Death
Corbitt was interviewed on the latest episode of the Metal Injection Livecast and was asked about the future of the band.
He responded, "When you lose a guy like Dimebag or Mike Scaccia, there is no way that either band should ever perform under that name again. That's just my opinion. Rigor Mortis is never going to perform again. That's because Mike Scaccia, deep down, was Rigor Mortis so it wouldn't be right. It's just out of respect for him. And I think, Phillip, I can't speak for him, but I think he feels the same way"
Former Pantera and current Down frontman Phil Anselmo was also a guest on the show and added, "I think [Bruce] summed it up very well. Let the legacy speak for itself. It is there, it's history. Music is history, music is tangible. It's a tangible thing, and it lasts for as long as it's relevant. And that brings me to fans, because without the fans, we would be zero, we wouldn't be acknowledged. [Acknowledgement] is a great thing, and all we can do during these trying times, is honor their names. I always send out a song to Dimebag, but there's a new rule now. The same song, it's called "Lifer," that I send out to Dimebag, I'm going to send to Mike as well. Those guys embodied the entire shape of what is a true lifer in music. They were born to do what they did." You can listen to the full episode here.
