Burton C Bell On Passing Of Paul Raven [Video Link*]
"He was a pirate, a true pirate, and he lived like a pirate to his last day. It's gonna catch up with ya. I love the guy, and I miss him."
Bell's bandmate in Ascension Of The Watchers is John Bechdel, who spent time with Raven in Killing Joke and a few other projects. Bell will also join Al Jourgensen onstage for the songs he performed on Cover Up for Ministry's last tour called the C U LaTour. The trek begins Tuesday, March 25, at the Big Easy in Spokane, Washington.
