Heaven’s Edge Announce New Bass Player, Jaron Gulino
George G.G. Guidotti, bassist for the ’80s / ’90s metal band Heaven’s Edge, lost his battle with lung cancer last summer and passed away at just 57 years old. The band has now announced a replacement in the form of Jaron Gulino (ex-Mach22, ex-Tantric), as well as plans for a pair of festival gigs in 2020.
The band’s full statement on their new bass player and direction forward, released to MetalSucks, reads as follows:
“As 2020 begins, Heavens Edge will enter our 33rd year as a band. In 2019 we lost our brother George.
“George was always asking when the next gig was. So much of who he was stemmed from being on stage. Everyone who knew him knew how much he loved being up there under the lights. We want to honor George by keeping his memory in the spotlight and his legacy alive. We look to do exactly that in 2020 as we perform a few shows and maybe even record some new music.
“We know we can’t replace George. All we can do is find someone to join us in giving it everything we’ve got the way we always have. We found someone we know George would back in bassist Jaron Gulino. Jaron comes from the Philly/Jersey area having played with the band Mach22 and most recently as the bassist for the band Tantric. Jaron is a relentless touring musician with a killer attitude and bass chops that will help Heavens Edge play at our best.
“We’ll be performing on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise in February, 2020. We’ll also perform at M3 in Maryland this May.
“We look forward to seeing you all again and keeping the party going in honor of our brother George.
“Mark, Reggie, Steve and Dave”
We continue to send George’s family our thoughts while also wishing the rest of the band well in their continued success.
