Volbeat's Michael Poulsen On Challenges Of Lineup Changes


(Classic Rock) Volbeat's Michael Poulsen says that band lineup changes can feel as challenging as a troubled marriage. The group split with original bassist Anders Kjolholm in November last year - but the guitarist and vocalist says that he and his bandmates have always worked hard to stay together.

He tells Full Metal Jackie (via Blabbermouth): "It's not always fun to change members or lose a member or whatever happens. We always try to stick together, but sticking together as a band, it's the same challenge that's being in a marriage or something like that.

"Some people are meant to stay together - others really have to work on it. And it's the same thing with bands. Sometimes it works - other times, you have to fight for it. We do everything we possibly can to stick together, but, you know, we have one life and everybody needs to do what they have to do." Read more here.
