Charlatans To Use Late Drummer's Recordings
British rockers The Charlatans will be using recordings of their late drummer Jon Brookes on their upcoming album.
Brookes passed away in August after losing a battle with cancer. He reportedly left his bandmates with drum recordings, and frontman Tim Burgess revealed that the band intends to use the music on their next album.
"He has left us a lot and we can piece together a few things, Burgess said. "We have got one song and we think that it is fantastic. That to me is the starting point and it is the first time we have really agreed on a song completely in quite a long time. This particular one can feature Jon's drumming. The album will feature Jon, even songs that aren't written will include Jon in the writing. He's just going to be part of it."
