Bassist Adam Duce of San Francisco Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD was interviewed by France's NRV-TV during the band's recent European tour with SLIPKNOT and CHILDREN OF BODOM. Watch the chat at this location.MACHINE HEAD was forced to cancel the last two shows on its European tour with SLIPKNOT (in Antwerp and Luxembourg) after guitarist Phil Demmel collapsed onstage again during the band's second-to-last song on December 12, 2008 in Sheffield, England. Adam Duce stated at the time: "After considering the seriousness of Phil's health condition, we all feel that skipping these last two shows is the best thing to do. It's a bummer to end this tour like this after doing nine amazing weeks and three continents with SLIPKNOT, but getting Phil back to the States to get checked out is the most important thing right now. Our sincerest thanks to SLIPKNOT and CHILDREN OF BODOM for their support and understanding. We understand that it's a big disappointment to the fans, and Phil is very sorry about it, but we all feel that his health and safety is most important at this time." MACHINE HEAD resumed touring on December 17, 2008 in Los Angeles for the first of two METALLICA shows at The Forum.
