Adam Duce Leaves Machine Head

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.asp...sitemID=186608

Quote:
"I had some issues with [the writing] process [for 'Unto The Locust']. I kind of took myself out of it until it was time to write my bass lines. I wrote a bunch of music, or riffs, that Robb [Flynn, guitar/vocals] didn't have any idea what to do with vocally, and so he didn't wanna use any of that. But more importantly, I wrote lyrics that meant a lot to me and I gave it to him. I've given him page after page after page of lyrics. And it usually comes back that way, [where] he'll use a verse or a part of it or whatever — 'I'm gonna take this part and put it down here.' . . . whatever works for the cadence. But I got kind of burned on putting my soul out on a piece of paper and giving it to him and when I see it next time, there's no remnants of what the original idea was. And I was just like, 'You know what, dude?! I'm not giving you any more fucking lyrics, because I'm fucking sick of looking at this, the way that it fucking turns out.' I said, 'I'll work on it with you at the same time, but I'm not giving you any more lyrics. I'm not giving you pages of lyrics.' He was fucking angry at me for a while, but you know… that's fucking what happens."

Asked if he has ever thought about quitting the band, Adam said: "I've thought about quitting on different occasions, but I mean, Robb's thought about quitting on different occasions as well. Dave [McClain, drums] actually quit the band. I can safely say everybody's thought about quitting at one point or another."
Jesus Christ my favorite bands keep loosing their core members. First Dave looks like he's done with Slayer, now Adam with Machine Head. I hope this week gets over without anything else bad happening.

This really sucks, BAD!

I'm sure Machine Head is more than capable of getting another badass bassist, but it won't be the same. L(

This really sucks, I always thought of Machine Head as having a rock solid lineup.

I wish Adam had started his own side project for his lyrical output if he felt it wasn't being used in MH rather than leaving.

Since they are in the writing process for a new album an altercation must have happen that pushed Adam to quit.

Not really. Sounds like his exit has been brewing for a while. A few years back there was a interview where he talked about how he almost quit on different occasions due to Rob. It sounds like Unto The Locust was written without him. Its a solid album regardless of who wrote it. I think MH will carry on & still deliver solid music. I hope Duce finds a new band to release his material too.

That sucks, but MH has gone through lineup changes before. As long as the guitar duo of Robb and Phil is in tact I think they'll be alright.
