PHIL DEMMEL replaces WILLIE ADLER in LAMB OF GOD for SHIPROCKED cruise
LAMB OF GOD has recruited Phil Demmel (VIO-LENCE, ex-MACHINE HEAD) to play guitar for the band on this year’s ShipRocked cruise, which set sail from Galveston, Texas on January 22 and includes stops in Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. Demmel is filling in for LAMB OF GOD’s regular guitarist Willie Adler who was unable to make the trip for reasons that have not been disclosed.
Since Carnival Cruise Line’s Have Fun Be Safe protocols and procedures currently require that guests are fully vaccinated and tested before their cruise on all sailings through February 28, 2022, some fans have speculated that Adler’s COVID-19 vaccination status was the main reason he was excluded from this year’s ShipRocked.
