Jeffrey Nothing Leaves Mushroomhead
Jeffrey Lewis Hetrick, a.k.a. Jeffrey Nothing, a.k.a. Jeff Hatrix, a.k.a. J. Diddly, a.ka. Sir Lord Baron Geoffrey von Hatarx VIII, a.k.a. probably the only member of Mushroomhead anyone could identify without a mask, has left the band “for reasons that are best for me as an artist and musician at this juncture in my career,” according to a statement.
That’s obviously pretty vague, but check this shit out: the band’s next show is scheduled for March 17 at Music Lynxx in Mentor-on-the-Lake, OH. They’ve got another gig booked in Columbus’ infamous Alrosa Villa on 4/20, and then they launch a full tour on April 27 in Flint, MI. Point being, for Joffrey Nobody to quit the band barely more than a week before their next show and on the proverbial eve of their next tour, there must be some conflict.
Meanwhile, as of the time I’m writing this (9:28 a.m. EST), the band has yet to comment. But this probably won’t reassure their fans:
We’ll let you know when there’s an update. Until then, our hearts go out to all the metal fans who aren’t sure which side their state fought on in the Civil War. At least you’ve still got Kid Rock.
