@Loudmouthcolumn

BASSIST Robbie Robbie Crane has quit Lynch Mob, giving no reasons for his decision.

The band has just released a well-received EP, the Sound Mountain sessions, but the experienced Crane obviously is unsatisfied with his current situation.

He issued a statement saying: “With much thought and regret, I am resigning as the bass player of Lynch Mob…

“Thank you to all of the fans for your support of the band and ‘Sound Mountain Sessions’… It has been a wild two-year ride that I wouldn’t change for anything!”

There is speculation that Crane is about to join a supergroup formed by vocalist Joe Lynn Turner, although Turner recently played this down

DOKKEN are previewing 11 new songs from their Broken Bones album, due September 25, on iTunes.
