An anonymous source is reporting that SUICIDAL TENDENCIES‘ guitarist Mike Clark has left the band for good.
Clark was forced to miss the remainder of SUICIDAL‘s tour with STRIFE, STEPCHILD and KILL THE PRECEDENT following a head injury during an incident at their May 31st concert in Santa Cruz, California, resulting in a concussion that also required nine staples to a gash on his head. Filling in for Clark on tour is Nico Santora.
Clark, who was previously in NO MERCY, joined SUICIDAL TENDENCIES in 1987 as the band’s second guitarist and played on many of their classic albums like “How Will I Laugh Tomorrow…When I Can’t Even Smile Today” (1988), “Controlled By Hatred/Feel Like Shit…Deja Vu” (1989), “Lights…Camera…Revolution!” (1990), “The Art of Rebellion” (1992) and “Suicidal for Life” (1994); the last four of those recordings featured seminal bassist Robert Trujillo, who is now in METALLICA. Clark rejoined SUICIDAL TENDENCIES when they reunited in 1997 and had continued touring and recording with the band since.
