Crashdiet’s Drummer Eric Young Takes A Break From Band

Crashdiet's Drummer Eric Young Takes A Break From Band


Dear people in Crashdiet-land,

I have decided to step aside from my duties as live drummer in Crashdiet. For how long, only time can tell. My reasons for stepping down are personal, and I need to focus on my own well-being for a while. Our good friend Lacu (ex Hanoi Rocks), will be taking over and performing on the upcoming tours booked for this year.

Peter, Martin & Gabriel :
We of course support Eric’s decision and wish him all the best. He’s our brother and we love him. Lacu will be in the music video for our next single “Powerline” which comes out on the album release date on April 29th!

Nineteen years together leaves a mark, so this was a challenge, but I believe it’s what’s best for everyone. On a positive note, being such a dedicated Hanoi Rocks fan as me, I couldn’t wish for a better replacement. Lacu is a perfect fit for us, and the future looks bright!
