According to Todd Kerns, who played guitar in Brent Muscat's recent version of FASTER PUSSYCAT, Muscat has dropped the legal battle over the band's name, effectively allowing Taime Downe to continue with his version of the group.
Said Kerns: "Brent Muscat has decided to forego the entire headache of the legalities involved in fighting for the name FASTER PUSSYCAT. After much soul-searching he decided after the European tour and the couple dates this summer that he's decided to let the other parties carry on with the name.
"I respect Brent's decision. After all he's been through with cancer, he has decided that fighting for it at this juncture in his life is not worth it. He has a family and owns some houses so he's doing just fine.
"Brent will explain in his own words when he's ready.
"We did a kick-ass tour and the reviews were stellar. The FASTER PUSSYCAT that carries on from here has a lot to live up to.
"I am not bummed. I was the fill-in guitar guy. I got to go to Europe and do a bunch of fun stuff. It was my hope that a more thorough 'reunion' would come to fruition out of all this but I don't know about that. If THE POLICE can reunite I think FP should try someday. It would be great for the fans.
"That said, we will not be at Rocklahoma in July. A FASTER PUSSYCAT will be there, just not this one. Haha. Not sure what the future holds for the five guys in our FASTER PUSSYCAT, but only time will tell."
