Has Chris quit The Sisters?

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

And with Ghost continiuing tour - this time their own, not as suport act - probability that we'll see Chris back to TSOM have faded away. BTW, Ghost are playing bigger stages (at least in PL).

Axeman is dead (to TSOM) long live Axeman.

I always assumed we wore Mish shirts at Girls gigs and Sisters apparel to see La Huss and the boys. Or am I out on me own again?

So... I did. And yes - Ghost put on an *awesome* live show. Mr Catalyst is very much living out his Rawk Star fantasies.

I guess in both situation, in at least short and mid term leaving of both guitarists have brought something new and good for band (Floodland and recent tour and press reviews).
At least, Chris has class, and he's very friendly and warm towards years spent with/in TSOM.

Yeah, he’s a class act. I met him very briefly at the Dallas show way-back-when, and he struck me as a real down-to-earth fellow.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

There was the post from Chris where he said (again) he didn't so much leave the band as have tour dates he couldn't do.

But he did offer to play bass... so there is that.

Proper quote

"People ask me sometimes if I would go back and the answer is, I never actually really left. I just wasn’t available for a particular tour. There was never really a conversation about it... this is fairly par for the course. But no bridges burned. That isn’t.

Andrew seems good with what they’re doing now, and it seems to be working, and I hope that continues for another 40 (ish) years.

(I’m around though, if they want a proper bass player.)"
