(TRR) – Rock ‘n’ roll mainstays Buckcherry have parted ways with guitarist Keith Nelson and drummer Xavier Muriel. The news came via a post from guitarist Stevie D. on the band’s official Facebook page.
This summer, the band will have guitarist Kevin Roentgen and drummer Sean Winchester (Everclear) on the road with them. Muriel was a member of Buckcherry for 11 years. Nelson was introduced to vocalist Josh Todd by their tattoo artist and the two formed Buckcherry in 1995.
Josh Todd and Stevie D. recently launched a new side project called Josh Todd & The Conflict. They have finished recording the band’s debut LP which is slated for a September release. Last January, a digital deluxe edition of Buckcherry’s album Rock ‘N’ Roll was released via F-Bomb/Caroline. The new deluxe edition featured the album’s original track list as well as the newly released version of “The Feeling Never Dies”, a brand new song titled “Getting Started” and a B-side called “Cannonball”.
