Surprised and a little sad to hear that Phil Campbell has announced he will be leaving The Temperance Movement. Bonn Rock fans will remember the band, and especially Campbell’s Paul Rodgers meets Joe Cocker vocals, from their Rockpalast appearance at the Harmonie in 2017 (see picture).
Here is an extract of Campbell’s message to the band’s fans:
“After 8 years in studios, splitter busses, trains, planes and venues all over the world, it is with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from The Temperance Movement. Its been a wild ride with many many good times and memories to cherish forever… touring Sweden in early days, selling out The Borderline in London, our first UK headline tour, Koko when Jimmy Page showed up, the Classic Rock Awards, the shows with The Stones, the first American Tour, Marrakesh, Germany, Paris… too many to mention”.
I have a feeling we haven’t heard the last of this voice, I certainly hope not…
