System Of A Down Drummer Talks Solo LP, Possible Covers
System Of A Down’s drummer John Dolmayan is tired of waiting on the rest of the band to figure out what the fuck they wanna do, and has struck out on his own.
We recently told you he began work on a solo album, which would feature some covers.
Well, earlier today, he updated fans on his progress in the studio.
“Work on my as yet untitled solo/ covers album is going well,” he says. ”We’ve completed basic structure and beats for 8 songs so far. I’ll update you as more develops”
John wouldn’t discuss who he’ll be covering on the new disc, but you can bet your bottom dollar he won’t be doing anything by Slayer.
“Slayer should never be covered,” he wrote in response to a fan’s suggestions. “There’s no way to improve their songs.”
Still no word from System of a Down on what their actual fucking status is. Are they active, on hold, defunct? I don’t know, go ask Mr. Owl.
