GODSMACK Part Ways With Drummer, Continue Work On New CD

GODSMACK have amicably parted ways with drummer Tommy Stewart, according to an official statement issued by the group.

"Tommy is a great guy and a tremendous drummer," singer Sully Erna said. "We wish him all the success in the world. ... He deserves it."

GODSMACK have yet to name a replacement for Stewart, who will pursue other musical interests. Meanwhile, the band will resume work on the follow-up to 2000's Awake for a tentative 2003 release through Republic/Universal Records.
