Bring on the subs!

We mean substitute musicians. But this IS making us hungry.

We mean substitute musicians, though bands may need these by the end of Saturday night, too.

The Battle for Korn show at Remmingtons Downtown, pitting seven local hard-rock acts against one another to open for the pseudo-metal icons, is two days away, and the anticipation ratchets up another notch with each passing day. Apparently, so does the intrigue. First comes word that All Kills Aside will bring back its original bassist, Clancy Leakey, who left the group for personal reasons in January. Next comes the news that Brand Of Freak‘s drummer was seriously injured in an accident (not life-threatening) and will be replaced for that band’s set by local drumming do-it-all John Anderson. These bands aren’t playing around, people. When the prize is raising the curtain on the biggest rock show Springfield has seen in years, we honestly wouldn’t expect anything less. Our only question is, what will the next 48 hours hold?

    The drummer for Brand of Freak(Matt Browning) Is an old friend of mine and his injuries were very serious as far as im concerned. An 800 pound piece of steel fell on him and he has a skull fracture from the back of his ear to his forehead. He could have easily died and is now being considered a miracle by the doctors. Every one should dedicate their set to him Saturday night

    Wow. Seems we weren’t told the details. Best wishes to Matt on a full recovery.

    I was quite happy that Formant made time in their set to acknowledge this young man who was injured in the battle of the bands(since how fast you set up and broke down and played was part of the judging), it shows what kind of band you really are……. QUALITY!!!!!!!!!
