DIESEL MACHINE bassist Rich Gonzales, who nearly lost his life after broadsiding a car while riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in August 2002, has issued the following update:"Things are rolling about nowadays. I'm in a wheelchair, parylyzed from the waist down, but jamming music as mean as ever. "First off, the new DIESEL MACHINE is almost done and is sounding amazing, really killer stuff. When Pat [Lachman, DIESEL MACHINE guitarist, former DAMAGEPLAN vocalist and ex-HALFORD guitarist] finishes playing guitar on the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE tour, things will resume. All-original lineup: A.J. [Cavalier, SOIL], Pat, Shane [Gaalaas, MSG, B'Z], and Rich [RECIPIENTS OF DEATH, DEVILUTION]. Release date still not known. More info coming soon. "Secondly, my new project AMERICAN AFTERMATH is getting things rolling, writing and recording some killer tunes and mapping out a good plan for management and a recording deal. We're playing Saturday, March 31st at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, a Club Vodka show. Hear some new music at this location. More news to come." DIESEL MACHINE's last album, "Torture Test", came out in 2000 via SPV Records. More information is available at this location.
