DAVID WAYNE's Final Interview To Appear On 'Beyond The Black' Documentary

METAL CHURCH associate Steve "Regiman" Johnson has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"Just a few weeks ago the guys doing the METAL CHURCH 'Beyond the Black' documentary flew up to Washington and crashed at my house while doing interviews with the guys from the current METAL CHURCH line-up.

"During the stay they also made contact with Duke [Erickson, original METAL CHURCH bassist] and Dave [Wayne, original METAL CHURCH singer] and got a chance to sit down with each of them also. I talked to Jeff Baker, one of the documentary guys, last night, he had just heard the news [of Wayne's passing] and was stunned. This as he was leaving his house in Vegas, heading to the airport on his way to Florida, where he will be interviewing Craig [Wells, original METAL CHURCH guitarist] in the next few days.

"With the addition of some live footage from some up-and-coming shows and a host of interviews over the next couple months, the filming process will end and the editing and will begin.

"At first when asked to participate and be interviewed, Dave was a bit apprehensive and not sure he wanted to participate at all or perhaps put it off 'till later this summer. However, after a few days to think about it, he decided to follow through. They got together, sat down for a couple hours and covered a gamut of subjects. Little did any of us realize the significance of the that interview. In light of this recent sad event, Dave's decision to do it then instead of later or not at all shall give his fans one last chance to here about his thoughts on many things and what his future plans would have been had not the creator called him home.

"I would guess the documentary will be done sometime this winter, ready for you all in the near future."

As previously reported, Wayne died on Tuesday (May 10) due to complications from injuries he sustained in a head-on automobile accident several months ago. He was 47 years old.
