Dan Lilker Not-So-Subtly Hinting That He May Be Retiring (Oh and Also Brutal Truth are Breaking Up)
I probably don’t have to tell you this, but just in case: Dan Lilker is the man. The bassist was a founding member of Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, and Brutal Truth. Most musicians can’t find their way to being in one semi-decent band, let alone THREE bands that are all totally killer.
So this message (and very dramatic image at the top of this article) he just posted on Brutal Truth’s Facebook page makes my eyes rain:
Lilker’s decision is, of course, a perfectly understandable one … but that doesn’t make it any less of a bummer. If you’ve never seen Brutal Truth before, they are truly a sight to behold, and you should definitely go see ’em before they throw in the towel. We will, of course, let you know as soon as they announce their final tour dates.
