Welsh rockers Stereophonics have finally found a new drummer, over a year
after firing original sticksman STUART CABLE.
The HANDBAGS AND GLADRAGS hitmakers sacked Cable in September 2003,
claiming "commitment-wise there have been issues" during the making of their
2003 album YOU GOTTA GO THERE TO COME BACK.
Frontman Kelly Jones and bassist Richard Jones have replaced Cable with
Argentine JAVIER WEYLER after spotting his musical talents at a jam session in
his native Latin country.
Jones enthuses, "We were at this club, it was rockin', everyone having a
good time, and then the owner invited us to this private house party where lots
of musicians go there to play - three floors, each floor getting darker and a
seedier the higher up they got. That's where we met Javier."
The sixth Stereophonics album, LANGUAGE SEX VIOLENCE OTHER?, hits stores
in March (05).
