HAIL! — the supergroup featuring vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, BEYOND FEAR) and guitarist Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA) alongside a rotating list of musicians, including drummers Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN) and Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD); and bassists James Lomenzo (MEGADETH) and David Ellefson (MEGADETH) — has issued the following update:"We are working hard on putting together a new DVD that will capture our history and spotlight all our live shows, special guests and exclusive behind the scene looks at our travels, rehearsals, soundchecks, interviews, meet-and-greets, etc. "We are looking for all video footage and photos that anybody might have so if you want the chance to have it included, please contact us at [email protected] and let us know what you have so we can check it out. You have all been the main reason we have done HAIL! and we want to include a special fan section as a way of saying thank you for all your love and support." In April 2010 it was announced that SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray had joined HAIL! He was supposed to replace the group's original member, David Ellefson, who was unable to take part in HAIL!'s current touring activities due to his renewed collaboration with MEGADETH. Gray was found dead in an Iowa hotel room on May 24. He was 38 years old.
