Dave Atkins, drummer for Aussie rockers Wolfmother, has parted ways with the band. The band has wasted absolutely no time replacing him, as they have recruited Will Rockwell-Scott of Mooney Suzuki and Har Mar Superstar. Rockwell-Smith will sit behind the kit for the rest of the band's tour cycle in support of Cosmic Egg.
In an email to fans, Wolfmother said, "Dave has had a great experience touring and recording with the band, though in time, it's proven to be too exhausting and taxing on his home life. Dave gives his blessings to the band and may well still be around for future recordings. All is good between the band, everyone is cool, this is more of a life change decision for Dave."
Does band life always get in the way of family life and vice versa?
