That's ashame, I really like Damon. I wonder will they get a replacement or just stick with the 2 guitarists? Get Erig Dover back that's what I say. Failing that I know a few chords!!!

Well, they have dates in a month in Europe. So I'm sure we'll find out fairly quickly.

Sorry to see him leave, but wishing him well.

Great guy.

he's a massive Phil Lynott/Thin Lizzy fan so if that is the case guess it's a dream come true.

Damon tweeted this

" I love you, Alice Cooper. And Chuck, Tommy, Steve, and Glen. And Keri, Jimmy, Eric, Ryan, and Tommy C. With all my heart"

Good luck Damon you did a great job for Alice Cooper and was nice meeting you at 100 club gig

That's a shame! I'll miss him, but if it means we get to see him solo, that's also cool.
Maybe there will finally be some European shows? Would be great!

I was looking forward to seeing him in October. :( I hope he's really successful in whatever he decides to do next because he's such a great musician. And I agree with Dragonlady - if he did some shows in Europe, that would be great.

Get real!

No one got screwed, musicians come and go only Alice Cooper is irreplaceable.

You are sounding like Tommy Stooge with your conspiracy theories, next you'll be coming up with a source you can't name!

Really?

It's best not to comment on things you have no knowledge of. We're you in the room when the changes were made? No. Those devisions aren't up to band members. They are made by producers, managers, labels, etc. Keri is a fine player and a great guy. Things just worked out this way, and Damon did as anyone would do... He kept his JOB. In this business anyone who is working is LUCKY. At any rate, Damon is leaving on his own to play with his favorite band of all time... Thin Lizzy. We are happy for him, and we love and respect him. He is family. Speaking of which, one of the main benefits for him is that he will be able to be at home with his family much more. I'd say there's karma involved, all positive karma because Damon is a fantastic guy.

Glad I got to see them on the 25 in Northampton MA. Great show. The 3 guitar attack worked very well. Aggressive and beefed up sound to the songs. Hope they get another player to fill Damon's spot.
