In late February, Robb Flynn has issued a statement that Machine Head have fired bassist Adam Duce. Robb is now the only remaining member of the original line up.
Month later the band announced that they are auditioning for a temporary replacement.
When I saw ex-Fear Factory's bassist (and at one point guitarist) Christian Olde Wolbers auditioning for the role, I realized that it's game over. It doesn't matter who else auditioned, they may as well not have bothered.
Not only does he sound like a perfect Machine Head bassist, but he looks the part.
This begs for only one question? Temporary replacement? I don't think so. He's a Machine Head to stay.
