James Murphy update....
A small donation was made to him over a year ago in the name of a few of the dedicated ranters at KNAC.COM. He had lost the letter, but recently found it, and has the following words to say: "... I will have some new music soon... and [this] helped me along towards that. I just wanted to let you know! Thank you!!"
In other James Murphy News...
"I just want to let everyone know that I received some really great news last week from my Ophthalmologist. Since my surgery my vision has been steadily improving and late last week my doctor officially pronounced my vision as "legal to drive" again. This is a very big announcement because when I first saw this same eye doctor over a year ago he told me that I would not see much improvement in my vision, and would never be able to drive again."
He went on to say...
"Musically speaking, I am in the process of a collaboration with Deron Miller of CKY, Brett Hoffman (ex-Malevolent Creation), and Dave Culross (ex- Malevolent Creation, Suffocation) which will take the form of a Death tribute album. This project was Deron's idea that he came up with as a way to help me with my medical expenses. The Schuldiner family has kindly given their blessings to this project and for that I am eternally grateful... We plan to have quite a few other preeminent guests from bands you may well know and love (not telling yet...). We have chosen the core band for the tribute and selected the tracks (so please don't bomb me with lists of requests! LOL!!) and now we are seeking a label."
James continues to write riffs for the next Discarnate release, but has his head full at this point with the Death tribute album. As soon as that is completed, he promises to work full time on the writing for Discarnate album. James also did some guest guitar work on the latest Summon album "And the Blood Runs Black."
