Towers Of London’s The Rev: ‘Why I quit’

Band became 'The Donny show' claims guitarist

Former Towers Of London guitarist The Rev has explained to NME.COM why he quit the band.

The Rev, along with drummer Snell, quit Donny Tourette’s outfit on July 13, days before the band embarked on a UK tour.

“I felt the integrity of the band had gone since Donny’s appearance on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’,” The Rev said. “Donny and Dirk [Tourette] became all about the partying and the music suffered. It had become the Donny Tourette show. I left the band on my own terms.”
