I saw Lee Dorian and Orange Goblin posting RIP messages about Eric Wagner and then saw confirmed on Blabbermouth, so it sure seems like the worst news is true. Eric Wagner, high priest of “white metal” doom (for spirituality, not race), has left us after a battle with Covid.
The Skull recently dropped off its tour with The Obsessed, citing “the ongoing and growing COVID situation sweeping the nation again, particularly in the South.” The band said that it would “reschedule as much as we can and tour again properly when things calm down.”
Please everyone be as safe out there as possible. I know it is delusional to think everyone will choose to do the same thing, so we have to communicate to one another and not create even bigger, horrible rifts in society. Whatever your beliefs on vaccination or faith or not, please bare minimum mask and be cautious. It is the tiniest thing SOME of us can agree on, so let’s please do that. We need more love to get through this horrible time or we will push ourselves even further apart. We need solutions that can work for all of society to function, so please everyone focus on that and stop downplaying Covid is even a risk or treating one another as subhuman and shunning anyone who doesn’t agree, cuz that won’t convince anyone of anything.
And also, before you call them the Flu Fighters again maybe think Dave Grohl is being cautious for a reason.
