Ol Drake Quits Evile

(TeamRock Radio) Ol Drake has quit Evile, saying it's impossible to enjoy a normal life while being part of the band. The guitarist reveals he's been considering his position for some time, before deciding to bow out of the thrash outfit he co-formed in 2004 out of the ashes of a Metallica covers band.

Drake says: "I've had some of the best times of my life in the past 15 years, and met some amazing and fascinating people. I've had the huge honour to play a part in so many things I'd never have dreamed of paying tribute to Dimebag in Metal Hammer; supporting Megadeth, Exodus and many of the bands I grew up listening to; touring places in the world I'd never have got to see."

But he continues: "In my opinion, the music business for a band of our genre and level determines a very unrealistic way of life. I find it difficult to make a living and have a normal life." Read more from Drake here.
