Larry Jacobson Writes In To LA Weekly's West Coast Sound Regarding Portnoy And Soundwave.

Larry Jacobson wrote into LA Weekly’s West Coast Sound to speak a little about the departure of Mike Portnoy and the cancellation of Avenged Sevenfold’s appearance at Soundwave.

[UPDATE: 12/17/10: A7X’s manager Larry Jacobson wrote to West Coast Sound denying any correlation between Mike Portnoy’s departure and the Australian tour’s cancellation:]

Larry Jacobson writes:

“The plan had always been for Mike Portnoy to play with the band through 2010. Nothing changed there but it was confusing b/c Mike gave interviews suggesting he may be touring with the band beyond 2010. There will be another drummer behind the kit for the band’s Nightmare After Christmas Tour as well as for the many other dates around the world that are underway into 2011 and beyond. As for Australia, the timing is completely unrelated. If you’ve read any of the juvenile and public attacks by the promoter, you can probably figure out why the band had legitimate doubts they could work with him to be able to put on the professional show their fans expect. They’re not in Australia every day so each tour needs to be the best the band has to offer.”

Thanks to Markus for sending this in.
