    Brian Young on Tour with David Lee Roth. Russ Parrish steps up to play the
    part of Ed

    Posted By: [The Band] on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2002 @ 1:39 AM

    Almost everyone knows by now that Brian is David Lee Roth's new guitar
    player. It is true and it is official. Brian's last show with the Atomic
    Punks will be May 4th at the Whiskey. So please come out to celebrate with
    us while we congratulate Brian and party at the Whiskey.

    The Story:
    When Brian first told us the news that he had got a call from David Lee Roth
    to come down and try out for the guitar spot, our hearts sank to the ground.
    We knew once David Lee Roth got to hear Brian play and get to know him, he
    would hire him on the spot. Sure enough that is exactly what happened. At
    first Brian was only going to be doing a few shows with David Lee. But as
    soon as David Lee and Sammy became friends and decided to go and tour the
    world together everything changed. Brian did not want to leave the band he
    has been with for 3 years and we didn't want to lose one our best friends
    and band mate. How can you turn down playing with the guy you are a tribute
    to? You can't say no and you shouldn't. Touring the world is one thing, but
    becoming rich and doing it with David Lee Roth is pretty fucking cool.

    So now we have to find a guitar player to fill Brian's shoes.
    Well, we didn't have to look far. Russ Parrish has been our bass player for
    almost a year now. He really is a guitar player, he just learned how to play
    the bass so he could jam with the Punks have fun and make money. So now we
    are so please to officially announce:
    Replacing Brian on guitar for the Atomic Punks will be
    Russ Parrish

    About Russ:
    If you have ever seen Metalshop Russ plays the part of Rachette.
    Russ played guitar for Rob Halford's first solo band "Fight." He also played
    with Jeff Pilson from Dokken solo band called "War & Peace"
    Russ was a student and a teacher at G.I.T.
    He is a fun loving gifted guitar player and he is ready to show all our
    friends out there how well he can do the part of Eddie Van Halen. This guy
    is an amazing guitar player and is ready to step up to the plate and be our
    new home run hitter.

    Here is an interview with Russ from Metalsludge:
    http://www.metal-sludge.com/20QuestionsRussParrish.htm

    On Bass Guitar:
    We are so pleased to welcome back Joe Lester on bass. Most of you remember
    Joe from previous shows. Joe played all of our out of town shows until he
    went on tour with Stevie Nick with his original band "California."
    Now that Russ has moved back to guitar Joe is back to rock some VH with us!!

    To all our friends out there please join us an come celebrate Van Halen with
    the Punks!

    Yeah, but is this a permanent lineup change? Dave will only be out with Sammy for a month or 2. What happens then? Does Brian go back to the Punks? If so it'll be a bummer not to see him anymore. Dave doesn't exactly tour non-stop anymore.

    Yes. From what Ralph told me a month ago, Brian WILL return to his usual slot as their guitarist.

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Of course, stuff might change. You never know.

    The Punks have their original bassist back, who, in my opinion, isn't anywhere as good as Russ, who stepped up to take Brian's spot.

    Dude,

    How many times did you see the Punks with Joe Lester on Bass?

    I think Joe is the best of the three Punk bass players that I have seen (since '95).

    If my memory is correct, I think he left the Punks in the Summer of 1997. (He also used to play in the disco tribute band with Ralph. Back then, they used to do the disco band five nights per week.)

    I'm curious to see how Russ handles lead.

    See? What'd I say? Damn! That blows. Brian is THE man for the spot. Far and away a much better guitarist than Bart Walsh.

    That really blows. If Brian is smart, he'll speak with Bart before he leaves with Dave. I love Dave and all, but I think we all know how he can be at times.

    Yes, Bart Walsh came from The Atomic Punks. He started The Atomic Punks. He was DLR's lead guitarist from 1999 up until about a month ago. Bart did spend some time in Nashville a year or two ago. Originally from North Carolina, Bart is living in Los Angeles. You can check-out his web site at http://www.BartWalsh.com
