PEPPER KEENAN! WITH C.O.C.! ONSTAGE! LIVE!!!
Last summer, D.X. Ferris interviewed Corrosion of Conformity’s guitarist Woodroe “Woody” Weatherman for us about the band’s Animosity-era line-up reunion, and, of course, the issue of whether or not Pepper Keenan would ever return to the fold was one of the topics of conversation. Here’s what Weatherman had to say about the subject:
“It’s kind of a weird way it came about. It was Pepper that stirred everybody’s bones back into motion. He had brought us up, doing some things in Europe this summer. Then with Mullin coming back in, being the original guy or whatever, that kind of fell through. Our cages had been rattled.
“Mullin came out of the shadows, so we kept on going with it. When the time is right, when Pepper is willing and everybody else is willing, we’ll probably do more four-piece stuff later on.”
Well, hey, guess what? Keenan recently joined the band onstage during a gig in Bilbao, Spain. Here’s some fan-filmed video:
Of course, this doesn’t mean that Keenan is back in the band for good — he seems to be pretty busy with Down at the moment — but it is one step closer to getting that four-piece reunion going. So I’ll take it, and happily.
