IT'S WAR! JIM NO MORE?!

FAITH NO MORE 'ALMOST CERTAIN' TO SACK THEIR BIG, SICK AN' UGLY GUITARIST!

Paul Rees


FAITH NO MORE are almost certain to part company with guitarist Jim Martin at the end their current tour, according to sources close to the band.

Martin has been a virtual outcast from the band ever since the release of the 'Angel Dust' album last year, but matters appear to have come to a head during Faith No More's recent trek around the European festival circuit.

Rumours suggested that Martin was indeed sacked as soon as he walked off stage after the band's headlining appearance at the Phoenix Festival, on July 17. These were fuelled by Martin's distance from the rest of the band (vocalist Mike Patton, bassist Bill Gould, keyboardist Roddy Bottum and drummer Mike Bordin) throughout the day.

Rather than retire to Faith No More's dressing room after the show, Martin either sat alone in the backstage hospitality tent or chatted with friends.

However, Faith No More still have a series of dates to complete, and it's unlikely Martin will be leaving before the band conclude their tour. Nevertheless, various members of the band have told insiders that, this time, the situation looks irreparable.

For the past year Faith No More have been the subject of constant speculation and controversy regarding inter-band conflicts. Over the past few months, though, the situation seems to have deteriorated considerably. By all accounts, matters have become so fraught that the five members have drawn up a legal charter protecting their interests in the event of a split.

Commenting on the problems in a recent interview, Mike Bordin said: "Who knows what's going to happen? I don't know what's going to happen. I know nothing."

More news as and when we get it.
