Palmason Speaks Out About Solstafir Firing
And he's accused frontman Addi Tryggvason of trying to register the Icelandic band's name behind his colleagues' back after his dismissal. In January the band named Karl Petur Smith as Palmason's replacement, adding: "Gummi will not be joining us on this tour due to personal reasons. We'd prefer to leave it at that and ask that you please respect our privacy in this matter and refrain from all questions, speculations and internet rumours. We will follow up when the time is right."
Now Palmason says in a long statement: "When I woke up on the morning of 20 January I expected to find an email with flight details for the tour that was supposed to start the day after.
"What I found instead was an email telling me I was fired from the band that I've poured my sweat, blood and tears into for the last 20 years, because of communication problems between us that were unjustly being blamed solely on me" Read more here.
