Rumors have been flying around about the departure of Paz Lenchantin from A Perfect Circle
, since she's currently playing with Zwan. This situation is explained beautifully on the news section of A Perfect Circle's website:Paz has been a vegan for many years. As many of you may know, sometimes the lack of protein in one’s diet can leave them borderline anemic and, occasionally, a bit delirious. After a festival show featuring APC and the The Smashing Pumpkins, Paz, in a state of “meat deprivation,” followed a “bald man named Billy” onto the wrong bus and we haven’t seen her since. Milk carton photos have, so far, been ineffective. Any help would be appreciated.
Thusforth, there is a new bassist in APC, as rumored for a week or two now: Jeordie White
now plucks at the four-strings. If you've been coming to sites like this long enough, you probably know him better as Twiggy Ramirez
. There's our Nothing Records
6-degrees of separation link for the day. But wait, there's more!
Continuing down the latest news post at the official site
, or if you follow Queens of the Stone Age
at all, you'll know that a guy whom the folks at aperfectcircle.us (formerly .org(?))
refer to as Troy Van Halen is also absent from the APC line-up. Who should Billy and Maynard have found to take this place but Danny Lohner
. Now, for all those whining about Paz's departure because "she plays violin and
bass," fear no longer. Danny is a multi-instrumentalist, and A Perfect Circle has rightly been saved.
With the departure of one vegan and the addition of former members of Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson to a band already notorious for it's frontman's connection to Tool, we are looking into reports about LA clothing shops
of large orders of leather, fishnets, and make-up being ordered and billed simply to "APC." (not really)
Thanks to Danny P. first clued us into this update.
