    In 98' why didnt dave tour? I didnt care that much for the dlr band cd but i was excited about seeing him tour though. It would have been cool to see John Lowery tour with dlr in my opinion. Anyone has the official story on this let it fly! 3

    Lowery quit, so Dave had to find a new guitar player.

    Why did it take a year to find one or did he even search after Lowery left? 3

    Dave thought he had built a great band with DLR Band, which the album proved. And there were plans for a summer 98 tour originally (at least Slawterhouse was implying so ) But when one guitarist is too sick to tour (Mike Hartman R.I.P.) and the other jumps aboard the no talent (Manson) gravy train (that would be Lowery) that pretty much kills the tour plans. I was pissed, bvecause I wanted to see Dave tour behind that album myself. But I don't blame him for postponing the tour a year after that. Manson is good for one more album, if he makes it that far. We'll see if anyone remembers Johnny "5" in 5 years

    Manson's already gone FORD. It'll be cool to see this new album of his flop tremendously.

    ... and watches Lowery's face when he becomes an unknown again and DLR becomes the #1 rock star again with the VH reunion!!

    By the way I by no means am angered by Lowery... his riffs kicked ass in DLR Band...

    Not only was he lacking a guitarist, but he didn't have a bass player either.

    The timing just wasn't right. Competition with another band during 98 wouldn't feel right. Same material, different singer... not smart.
