CRO-MAGS co-founder Harley Flanagan (bass/vocals) has issued a statement slamming his former bandmate, vocalist John Joseph, over his plans to embark on a CRO-MAGS "farewell" tour next month with an all-new lineup that does not include Flanagan.The statement reads as follows: "Harley Flanagan WILL NOT be touring with John Bloodclot and his NO-MAGS. This is misleading information put out by John Bloodclot and his booking agent Matt Pike to deceive fans and MAKE MONEY. They are not presenting the CRO-MAGS since Harley Flanagan WILL NOT be appearing. There are currently NO CRO-MAGS gigs booked. Harley Flanagan WILL NOT be touring with John Bloodclot and his NO-MAGS." As previously reported, the Joseph-fronted "CRO-MAGS" are scheduled to embark on an Australian tour in late February. The band's lineup for the tour will reportedly consist of the following: John Joseph (vocals), Rocky George (guitar — SUICIDAL TENDENCIES), A.J. Novello (guitar — LEEWAY), Franklin Rhi (bass — CROWN OF THORNS, SHELTER), and Gary "G-man" Sullivan (drums — PARLIAMENT, FUNKEDELIC).
