Hier das Statement vom PARADISE LOST Management Northern Music Co.:
“Tragically, Lead Guitarist Greg Mackintosh will be unable to continue with PARADISE LOST’s ‘Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us’ tour of Europe due to a terminal illness within his family.
Greg’s father was taken critically ill some weeks ago, yet Greg decided to commence the tour anyway in the hope that future news from home would be positive.
This unfortunately was not the case, therefore (as of 6th November 2009), Greg will remain in England to support his relatives during this difficult time.
Everyone involved with the band would like to offer Greg our support and to let him know all our thoughts are with him.
The tour will not end here though.
Milly Evans, (PARADISE LOST’s long-standing Guitar Technician, and keyboardist from Terrorvision), will fill in for Greg with immediate effect.
Having worked with the band for many years, Milly knows Paradise Lost’s repertoire far more than most, and will endeavour to provide a seamless transition between guitarists. Milly is highly regarded among Paradise Lost’s fan-base and is the best person to fill Greg’s role in the band for the rest of the European tour.
We apologise in advance to those of you who will be joining us for the European dates and will no doubt be disappointed by Greg’s absence. However, we are sure you will appreciate this unfortunate situation was unavoidable and everyone is doing everything they can to ensure the shows run as smoothly as possible.”
