STEREOPHONICS drummer STUART CABLE has left the band.
The band, who have been touring America, made the announcement this morning (September 25). In a statement singer Kelly Jones claimed there were “commitment issues” in recent years.
A statement reads: “Me and Stuart started a band when I was 12. Emotionally to me this is heartbreaking, I love him like a brother, but commitment-wise there have been issues since ’Just Enough Education To Perform’.
“We’ve tried resolving them but things stayed the same. Myself and Richard miss Stuart already, a band is like a gang and a lot of the time he simply wasn’t there, although it was our fault to allow this situation to develop in the first place.
“No one will be replacing Stuart as a band member, Stuart is irreplaceable, but Steve Gorman (ex-[a][/a]) will continue to sit in on drums for the upcoming shows. No one member of the band is bigger than our songs. It’s a rock and roll band and the coming shows will be rocking.”
