Renowned metal guitarist/producer James Murphy (ex-TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) has issued the following alert:"Hurricane Charley (CNN) is barreling its monstrous way on a path that will bring it right down the throats of me and my family.. in just a few hours. I'm wrapping up all the gear I've managed to accumulate since my illness wiped out damn near my entire previous existence, to protect it from water and banging around just in case we lose our roof, or worse. I'm just praying at this point that this damn cyclone doesn't wipe me out for the second time in less than 5 years.
"Wish me and my family, and all the other hapless souls that are in the path of this thing, luck. If all goes well, I'll be seeing some of you at the CHIMAIRA, MACHINE HEAD, TRIVIUM show tomorrow in Orlando. If not... well, let's not go there just yet.
"I'll report again when I can."
