Former FAITH NO MORE bassist Billy Gould has dismissed as false reports that he has started a new group with vocalist Whitfield Crane (UGLY KID JOE, LIFE OF AGONY, MEDICATION) and ex-FAITH NO MORE guitarist Jon Hudson. "Actually, I've been involved in a project with Jon Hudson and Puffy [ex-FAITH NO MORE and current OZZY OSBOURNE drummer Mike Bordin] for the past few years, but it just didn't come together in a way that made me totally happy," Gould told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "There WAS a period of time when we were checking out Whit, and we worked on a couple of things, but it didn't really develop from there. It is possible that Whit is still working with Jon on another project [which is also believed to include M.I.R.V. bassist Craig McFarland—Ed.], but I'm not sure about that. If so, that's great."
Regarding his current activities, Billy said, "since I was beginning to get a little frustrated, I decided to take a break from that project [with Puffy and Jon], produce a couple of bands, and get my label [Kool Arrow] in order, which I've been doing for the past 4 months or so... Right now I'm getting ready for a dual release (FLATTBUSH and DON CIKUTA) on Sept. 9th. After that, I will be getting something together. But I'm not going to put out any old shit, if you know what I mean. It will have to be something I'm 100% behind."
