White Wizzard Lose Frontman
And maybe even some more members.
White Wizzard — a totally useless band that emails me 100s of times a day — have a new singer after firing their frontman Joseph Michael.
“White Wizzard want to release a brief statement on singer Joseph Michael. Last night in Cardiff, Wales, Joseph Michael left a crowd of fans sitting in the venue waiting to see White Wizzard, sat in a pub across the street and refused to perform the show for extremely selfish reasons,” says the band.
“The band soldiered on with Peter Ellis and Jon Leon handling vocals. It was hugely unprofessional on his part. Due to these actions, we have secured another singer for mainland Europe named Giles Lavery. Sadly, due to this any many other problems over the past several months, it is without question we must move on and immediately make a change. Joseph is making very false and erroneous claims on his Facebook site unfortunately about Jon and the band, but without getting into a war of words we will just simply say he is lying and making a desperate attempt to hurt the band and Jon to cover up his very unprofessional actions.”
Later, the band claimed their ex-singer the previous week “stole a bag belonging to a very sweet girl named Charlotte Croucher… Her bag contains a wallet, passports and other very important documents. After finally coming clean after we caught him with it, he stated that he would return it to her in London. After fucking off our show in Cardiff last night when he refused to give us the bag to return to this girl in London.
“She rode up all the way from Brighton to get her bag and sat outside our gig for hours (which he fucked off again). She is now very distraught and on the way back to Brighton with no bag. We feel horrible. Please pressure Joseph Michael to do the right thing and return the girl’s bag.”
Meanwhile, Michael himself has been actively defending himself on Facebook, and said he returned the bag.
“Jon has been stealing money from us. From Indiegogo fund and out on tour and I called him out on it.
He then fired me last night on the night off… Then announced that I was refusing to sing… It’s all lies…I was fired and he couldnt find someone to sing so he begged me five minutes before they went on…Jon Leon is a Con man and has not honored one word he has said since I have joined this band.”
I wish I cared.
