DROWNING POOL Guitarist Interviewed On 'The Governor's Ball'; Audio Available

Guitarist C.J. Pierce of the Texas metal band DROWNING POOL was interviewed for this week's edition of the "The Governor's Ball". Pierce talks about the group's early commercial success, the dreaded "nu-metal" tag and the fact that DROWNING POOL has recorded three albums with three different singers.

DROWNING POOL was recently forced to reschedule its previously announced Australian tour in order to allow lead vocalist Ryan McCombs to get some vocal rest as prescribed by his doctors. McCombs was assured that his "strained vocal cords" would heal completely with time and rest.

DROWNING POOL has been on the road in support of its third album, "Full Circle", which marks the recording debut of McCombs.

DROWNING POOL lost its first singer, Dave Williams, to heart disease in 2002, and parted with a second vocalist and a record label while attempting its first comeback two years later.

More recently, bassist Stevie Benton was diagnosed in December with a neurological disorder called Bell's Palsy, which causes paralysis of the face and occasional sensitivity to sound. The group had to cancel the rest of its immediate tour dates so that Benton could recover.
