FLOTSAM AND JETSAM bassist Jason Ward was set to fill in for HALFORD's Ray Riendeau during the group's West Coast mini-tour this week after Riendeau's family suffered a tragic loss that prevented the bassist from appearing at the dates (which have since been cancelled). It is not presently clear if Ward will join HALFORD during the rescheduled trek in late January or if Ray will return to the band in time to appear at the group's first North American concerts in support of last year's "Crucible" CD.
