Is there nothing Gene Hoglan can’t do — other than synchronized swimming? And maybe running?
The current touring drummer for Testament — Gene “The Atomic Clock” Hoglan — will be pulling double duty on the band’s U.S. tour with Anthrax and Death Angel.
Hoglan will also be filling in for Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante, who is taking a short leave from the band’s tour to care for his terminally-ill mother.
“I am honored to have been asked by Charlie to fill in for Anthrax in his time of need,” says Gene.
“We are all metal brethren, and this is what we do. Unite for the cause, unite for the fans, and unite for metal. Everybody on this tour has pulled together to keep this tour rollin’, everybody is kicking ass. And everyone on this tour is sending our love and respect to the Benante and Bello families. And Charlie, we can’t wait to have ya back where you belong, my man. I’m just keeping your throne warm for ya bro.”
You gotta love Gene Hoglan. The dude can pound and he’s always coming through in the clutch. What a dude!
