Mushroomhead: Eight men, but no Mann.
Former Mushroomhead frontman J. Mann
isn't back in the band, but you might not have known it by watching TV. A Tower Records commercial that aired during this week's Headbanger's Ball
hyped Mushroomhead's new CD, Savior Sorrow
, by running a clip that was identified as a video for the new single "Simple Survival." The colorful footage featured Mann (now simply Jason Popson), but was actually taken from the "Solitaire Unraveling"
clip," from 2001's XX
"Yeah, it's a Tower screw-up with the commercial," says Robert John, president of Megaforce Records
, Mushroomhead's label. "Somehow they didn't have new video, so they pulled it from old footage." -- D.X. Ferris
