Let’s not say too much yet because this is fresh news. Phil Demmel (guitar) and Dave McClain (drums) left Machine Head, however they will complete the US/Canada tour which ends in November.

Robb Flynn announced the departure of the two members of the band with a video on Facebook in which he stated among others that probably it was his character, enthusiasm and anger that maybe drove the other members away. If this is indeed the end of Machine Head, then we have to say goodbye to a legendary band which set high standards for the American heavy metal scene and inspired many musicians and fans. For sure they are leaving a great legacy behind for many years to come.
