Headcat (formerly The Head Cat), the bluesy rockabilly band that featured Lemmy Kilmister along with Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats) and Danny B. Harvey (Lonesome Spurs, The Rockats), have announced that they will be continuing on without the legendary Motörhead frontman who passed away in 2015. Taking his place will be David Vincent (Ex-Morbid Angel).
The band commented:
“Here’s the Headcat news you’ve all been waiting for:
After the success of the Headcat show last December in Berlin, the two surviving members of Headcat, Slim Jim Phantom and Danny B. Harvey, have decided to continue the band they started with Lemmy Kilmister over 17 years ago. They will be playing three shows next month in the USA and a handful of European shows in late summer that will be announced over the next few days.
In the meantime here’s the answer to the question we’re sure is on everyone’s mind: The Bass and most the vocal duties will be handled by former frontman and bassist from Morbid Angel, David Vincent. David’s powerful baritone voice and thunderous bass playing is very complimentary to both Danny B’s guitar style and Slim Jim’s drumming. Different than Lemmy but true to Headcat’s vision and direction. Rockabilly and Death Metal??? As Lemmy Kilmister, Danny B, Slim Jim and our fans have always tried to tell to you “It’s All Rock’n’roll” !
LONG LIVE ROCK’n’ROLL”
