SOIL guitarist/former BROKEN HOPE bassist Shaun Glass has issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:"The news I was told today made my stomach go in knots. The metal community has lost another amazing player. "Piggy to me was a man that could make a guitar sound like NO ONE ever has. 'I remember my first time meeting the band as a fan I would write to them and was invited to stay at their old apartment for the now infamous World War 3 fest in Montreal [in November 1985] — a five-day vacation of hanging with my idols VOIVOD. "Piggy, I love you. And to the remaining members of the fucking best thrash metal band ever, all my thoughts are with you. "For my fallen brother tonight, we are in Florida and I will play this show for you, Piggy. "To the death!!!! "R.I.P, Denis D'amour."
