How cool was that and how great that the classic line-up has once again joined forces. Saw Rigor Mortis several times, back in the day. They
always put on a killer show. If you were a part of the Dallas scene back then, you could always see one of the members at the clubs on the weekends, or see Casey Orr, driving around in his
"beat to hell", Trans Am. One show that comes to mind was a Halloween or New Years gig at the Arcadia. The place was packed, Sedition opened. I remember Turner, the lead vocalist for Sedition, cutting himself with a knife on stage and drinking out of his
large chalice. After Rigor blew the house up, we went behind the venue and hung out
with the band members. Later, that meeting with Turner would get me backstage to Metallica...Justice tour, but that's another story.
I hope the band decides to keep this line-up together. Bruce was the guy that helped make that band complete. I always felt that once he was kicked out, the band lost something...and not just a singer, smart ass.
As far as the classic "Self-titled" release...it is just that, a FREAKIN CLASSIC. Along the lines of Slayer's, Show No Mercy, which to this day is still one of my favorite records...Evil Has No Boundaries, The Antichrist, Die By the Sword...sorry got sidetracked.
Who knows what could have been... Anyhow, give it up for an original, Bruce Corbitt, the reunion, and go see the show if it comes to your town...We gotta get, at least, one more record with Bruce in the band. Thanks for the great interview.
Bonus ROUND - - - Listen to "Die in Pain" from the self-titled release.
