I'm super stoked to do the shows. It's going to be a great time. Just so everybody knows, I will be selling my Drum Instructional DVD, The Atomic Clock, at the shows (shameless plug). If you can't make it out to one of the shows, buy it on line!"

As far as I know, he is still in Fear Factory... this statement still makes it sound like Gene is only a temporary replacement, not a full member of Testament. *shrugs*

I wish I was in the US where I could witness this tour. This is my dream tour. Testament, oh my fucking Thor I love this fucking band, Anthrax, were the best at my first gig ever and DEATH FUCKING ANGEL. T_T

Gene, Bostaph, doesn't matter. This band has had my fucking three inspirations in drumming all in the same band. Gene Hoglan, Paul Bostaph, Dave Lombardo.. wow. Also, Louie Clemente's drumming is something I love.
