White Wizzard Back Down To One Member Again

(Classic Rock) White Wizzard are down to one man again after all the current members of the band quit, leaving founder Jon Leon alone for the second time in the band's history. But the bassist has vowed he'll keep moving forward, and that will be his "revenge" on his former colleagues.

The collapse began at the weekend when Leon announced singer Joseph Michael had been fired after refusing to perform a show on their UK tour. Michael lashed back, saying he'd been dismissed the night before, and accused the mainman of acting "like a child."

Despite discussions with a stand-in singer, the US NWOHBM-fuelled outfit abandoned their tour and went home. Since then, guitarists Jake Dreyer, Will Warner and drummer Giovanni Durst have resigned from the band.

It's the second time that's happened in 2008 original lineup fellows James-Paul Luna, James LaRue and Tyler Meahl abandoned Leon and formed their own outfit, Holy Grail. Read what the members had to say and Leon's plans to move forward.
