Having known Opus of Dead By Wednesday before his day in this band, it is sad to report Ross Ragusa has chosen to amicably part ways with the Connecticut based metal band.
“I love my brothers in DBW, I wish them nothing but success, as they deserve it for the years of hard work they put into this project. This was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life. But the road has done serious damage to my back and neck, so I need to step away to get healthy, pursue an education in music, and come out strong to become the musician I was born to be.”
“Although we will miss Ross on many different levels, we look forward to the excitement and possibilities of working with some new energy and flesh blood. We don’t care how long it takes for our search, but hopefully our ‘Randy Rhodes’ will walk through the door.” – Opus, drummer
DBW will be holding national auditions for their replacement guitarist. All candidates must be pro and willing to tour. According to the band, “To be considered, you must be as good or better than Mr. Ross Ragusa. If you think you got what it takes, and are serious about your career, email Omindsnap@aol.com.”
Pete Rock side note: You must be able to maser this song.
