Devildriver - Miller Quits Devildriver

Devildriver bassist Jon Miller has decided to quit the heavy metal band following his rehab stint for drug and alcohol addiction in December (10).
The musician confronted his demons after admitting a decade of wild living finally "caught up" with him when he was left in an intensive care unit battling serious health problems just before the Christmas (10) holidays.
He subsequently checked into a clinic and missed out on the band's touring commitments, with their road manager Aaron Patrick stepping in to replace him.
Miller has now announced he will not return to the stage with Devildriver, calling the decision the "most difficult" of his life.
In a statement, he says, "I just wanted to thank all of the Devildriver fans around the world for their die-hard love and support for the past nine years. Yesterday, I decided to leave Devildriver. It was the most difficult decision of my life but it is something that I needed to do for myself. I had the best times of my life hanging out with all of you guys, but it is time for me to move on. Much love to everyone."
