Another day, another Iced Earth/Megadeth line-up change...

Did he actually get to play anything in the band?

Did he actually get to play anything in the band?

According to the message Jon Schaffer has sent to Blabbermouth.net, yes.

"Tim played the guitar solos on the re-recording of the 'Something Wicked' trilogy, that appears on the upcoming 'Overture of the Wicked' four-song single that's due to be released in early June."

He also says: "I know this lineup situation has become a familiar issue with Iced Earth but please realize that it will have little or no effect at all on our plans, recording, touring and otherwise. The core is solid, focused and ready to kick some serious ass."

As reported, the whole message can be found here.

For 'the core is solid', read, 'Hey, I'm hardly going to get pissed off with myself and leave, or fire myself, am I?'

Damn that's one hell of a band line-up...wish I could see one of those shows

And yet another line-up change for Iced Earth...we should start making bets on how long time until the next one leaves

Heaven and Hell with Iced Earth?? That will be, for sure, a very very great show!!!

About the departure of Mills, this kind of departures always take place in bands with control freaks like Jon Schaffer.
Bad English - 28.03.2007 at 22:39

It had nothing to do with Jon? Did you read it? They worked out that he would cope playing in the band even with his business. Later, Tim realised it wouldnt work out, and you wouldnt leave your business for a band.

Well that makes sense, but anyway, the departure of Tim wouldn't be as bad as it if was Jon who leaves the band. What I meant by mentioning Jon is that these bands are always changing line-up but with the band-leader still remaining, the band will still be around.

Well if Jon leaves Iced Earth will disband, you need original members to continue, or at least have respect.
I guess hes just had an unlucky time finding suitable musicians, i really dont think Iced Earth will be around in 5 more years, Schaffer has health issues, and will eventually not be able to cut it with performing live.

OH MY GOD this is to much....My freaking Metal Gods! Tony Iommi And Jon Schaffer on one show! Im almost in happy tears!
But wait.....i dont live in the UK....im from Holland....WHYYYYY GOD, WHYYYY.

I hope they come to Europe with this show. That would be the best gig ever....

Jon Schaffer will play until he dies....im sure of that. And No matter how many new members there will be (come and go) Jon Schaffer is Iced Earth. If he leaves, Iced Earth is dead. Simpel as that.

you do realise he has his own business too? With antiques? He will leave soon when his health is poor. Not anytime soon, but 5 or so years.

Yes i know he has his own Shop, but thats not his life. Iced Earth is his life really. And he will always have this urge to write music and play it. He is to ambitious and creative to stop with his band. He made Icede Earth for what it is , one of the major Heavy Metal bands in the world with his own dedicated fanbase. I dont believe he will sit back in 5 years.

Maybe he will do so when he's 60 but then still i guess he will bring out albums once in a while.

John Schaffer is so stupid american idiot that cannot hold good members in his band. it's shame cause he writes good musicbut doesnt know how to use it
blackrippicearth - 30.03.2007 at 21:16

Man, I'd so much rather see Iced Earth headlining. Wembley Arena is just too massive for my liking.
