The Rev and Snell have left Donny Tourette’s heavy metal gang

Two members of London rockers Towers Of London have left the band.

Guitarist The Rev and drummer Snell have decided that their future lies outside the band, led by ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star Donny Tourette.

The band will continue with existing members Donny, Dirk and Tommy, who have temporarily drafted in friends Christian Marr and Aaron Attwood to fill in on guitar and drums respectively. Their UK tour, which begins on Monday (July 16) in Newcastle, will go ahead with this line-up.

A source close to the band said: “I’m sure Donny would have a few things to say about it, but the band are really positive. Donny’s always said the band isn’t about any particular member or members, so as far as he’s concerned it’s business as usual and the tour will happen as planned.”
