Sanctuary Records Says 7 X 70

Sanctuary Records group commented this morning on RJ Stone's news item regarding the Dan Spitz project, monikered 7 X 70, in which it was reported that Dave Ellefson and Nicko McBrain, along with Rob Van Winkle, would participate in this new venture. Sanctuary issued a distinctly unspecific blanket dismissal of the report. According to Sanctuary:
“Sadly for all you scoop hounds it is not Apr. 1st as far as we know. This "story" is total bollocks. Nicko and Danny Spitz did some music together it is true and they discussed over the phone with Dave Ellefson about him possibly taking some part at some stage. However Nicko's Maiden schedule and Dave's current plans stop this going any further. So whoever jumped many bridges to get to this conclusion should be congratulated on their fertile imagination and we recommend they write a story about schoolboy magicians. Enough said.”
Conversely, Danspitz.com links directly to the KNAC.COM story without dispute and a source close to KNAC.COM and the Spitz camp reports hearing the tracks and cites them as "really hard and really heavy." Will "Dan Spitz and the Sorcerer's Stone" ever cross the bridge into existence? Time will tell.
