Aaron North Wiki Update…

Not necessarily (present) The Icarus Line related, but considering that Aaron North once played with the band, I thought I should include this little update from his Wikipaedia page:

North formed Jubilee in late 2007 with former Icarus Line band-mate, Troy Petrey, on drums, and bassist Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stone Age, Wires On Fire). The band embarked on a brief UK tour in January 2008 with members of Wires On Fire temporarily rounding out the lineup. The band returned to the UK in late 2008 to complete a more extensive tour. Upon their return, they played one show in Los Angeles. This is still the only performance the band has ever played in their native country. Jubilee released two singles in 2008, “Rebel Hiss” and “In With The Out Crowd”, which were intended to be immediately followed by their debut album.

In late 2008, North suffered a nervous breakdown while mixing the Jubilee album. After subsequent hospitalizations, he ceased all activity with the band. A “motorcycle accident” was used as a public explanation at the time. Months later, attempts to form a new lineup of the band and finish the album were also abandoned due to North’s struggles with mental health and addiction. The still unreleased album is said to include performances from a vast array of drummers, including Dave Grohl, Julian Gross, Nick Jago, Joey Castillo, Carla Azar, Josh Freese, Loren Humphrey, Kevin Haskins, Taylor Hawkins and Josh Homme. Other collaborators include Trent Reznor and Maynard James Keenan.

I guess it probably explains why we haven’t heard or seen much of Aaron North in the news lately (or on the web). Get well soon, Aaron…
