PRONG's TOMMY VICTOR Says Former Bassist BRIAN PERRY Is 'Bitter'

PRONG mainman Tommy Victor has hit back at group's former bassist Brian Perry over comments Perry made about the band in a recent online interview. Speaking to Metal Refuge late last year, Perry discussed his time with PRONG and the circumstances that led to his departure from the group.

"I was with PRONG for about a year of touring in 2002," Perry explained. "We headlined across the country and recorded [the live album] 'Prong 100% Live'. We did about 10 weeks opening for DANZIG. We also went to Europe and did some festivals. I left PRONG after the New Year because during the time I was with the band I witnessed first hand how not to run a business, and decided to leave while the leaving was good. I believe this is why PRONG never hit the heights that it should have."

Asked in an interview with Israel's Alternative-Zine to comment on Perry's remarks, Victor said, "Brian is a little bitter. What band has he been in that has hit heights? It's all relative. PRONG was signed to Epic along with a large label signing of close to 50 bands. None of them had stood the test of time." Read the rest of Victor's interview at this location.
