It appears that Dré Gipson (keys, kocals) will no longer play with Fishbone on a regular basis.
Fishbonelive.org wishes to thank him for his contribution to Fishbone's sound and music these last 9 (!) years. He made a difference both on stage and in the studio, with writing credits for three landmark songs of the last decade, i.e Party with Saddam, Behind Closed Doors and DUI Friday. On stage, he assumed the position, perfectly complementing Angelo Moore, when needed.
We wish him all the best with Hunter Green, his current project and we hope that he'll keep on adding his distinctive touch to the madness of Fishbone, one way or the other.
Fishbone had to cancel their April/May European tour due to the knee surgery complications that Angelo is currently sufferring from. The tour should be rescheduled in the fall. Fishbonelive.org wishes Angelo all the best for a speedy and full recovery!
