I HATE IT WHEN I’M RIGHT: SNOT GET BACK TOGETHER
Back in April, I bemoaned the inevitably of a Snot reunion, and a whole bunch of you came to the group’s defense. So while I weep, you can all rejoice: guitarists Mikey Doling and Sonny Mayo (who is in need of some cash after getting his Sevendust pink slip), drummer Jamie Miller and bassist John “Tumor” Fahnestock (worst nickname this side of “Shit Stain”) are reuniting under the Snot moniker for two shows later this year, presumably with more to follow. I’d tell you about those two announced shows, but I don’t want you to go. I’m petty like that.
Here’s where things get weird: original Snot vocalist Lynn Strait is dead, which means, of course, that he’s not avail for the reunion… and so the band have replaced him with former Divine Heresy front man Tommy Cummings/Vext/whatever.
Tommy’s voice strikes me as being considerably different from Strait’s (to put it mildly), but maybe he has way more vocal range than his work with DH allowed him to show. And since word on the street is that Dino Cazares withheld quite a lot of moolah from Tommy following the split, I’m not surprised the dude would jump at the chance to front this outfit.
I guess we’ll see if anything interesting actually comes of this.
