Midpoint 2006 Preview
From The Cincinnati Post
Whigs Live: There may be Afghan Whigs sightings during Midpoint as three members of the legendary Cincinnati rock band are said to be in town working on a mini studio reunion. Lead singer Greg Duli, now a Los Angeles resident, and guitarist Rick McCollum, now living in Minneapolis, have returned to rehearse with Cincinnati-based bass player John Curley. Word is they plan to record four new songs soon at a Memphis studio where they recorded their critically praised breakout CD, “Gentlemen.” The songs will be included on an Afghan Whigs retrospective planned for release by Rhino Records.
A separate, unrelated Whigs project is also in the works with the blessing of former band members as some local indie music producers are putting together a Whigs tribute album that will feature Cincinnati and well-known national bands covering Whigs. It is due out in the spring.
