SAVATAGE have fired recently-recruited guitarist Jack Frost and have replaced him with returning axeman Al Pitrelli (ex-MEGADETH), according to a report posted at Brave Words.“[The SAVATAGE] guys lied to me,” Frost said. “You can't lie to the fans. “I loved playing in that band. I thought they were friends. We toured together, telling me how much they enjoyed me being in the band, made plans for the next record and the festivals this summer. If that's what you consider 'friends,' then be my enemy. “They call me up and say I'm fired, just like that. “I'm not a drunk or a drug addict. They never complained about the live performances, just the opposite, complimenting me, in the press, about how much renewed energy I brought to the show. So at the end of the day, it was just a decision to bring 'their boy' [Pitrelli] back.” Frost will now reportedly concentrate full-time on SEVEN WITCHES, who are scheduled to kick off a European tour with ANNIHILATOR at the end of April.
