Crowbar Going Old School With Todd Strange


(Metal Hammer) Crowbar leader Kirk Windstein says the return of bassist Todd Strange has given their material an "old school" feel - and he can't wait to return to the road with him.

Former bassist Jeff Golden claimed he was fired by text message earlier this year - a move which paved the way back into the band for Strange, who had left the group in 1999.

Windstein says bringing him back into the fold wasn't a conscious decision, but one which has proved to be a success as Crowbar prepare to launch their 11th album The Serpent Only Lies on October 28.

Windstein tells New Noise Magazine: "We wish Jeff Golden all the best. It's just one of those things where things weren't working out with Jeff, and it's weird.

"Todd left the band in late 1999, and I hadn't seen him for years. We never left on bad terms - he just decided he'd had enough. As things started to become obvious that it wasn't going to work out with Jeff, we said, 'We probably have to get a new bass player if things don't change.'

"Todd had picked up the bass and started playing again a couple years ago. So, when things didn't work out with Jeff, Todd was there. Everything was written before any of that happened. That wasn't a conscious thing with Todd in mind.

"But I can't wait to play the new songs with Todd, because it does have that old school feel, and him coming back into the band is really a great thing. His attitude is unbelievable." Read more here.
