Whigs Call it a Day
The Afghan Whigs have disbanded, according to their label Columbia Records. Singer-songwriter Greg Dulli cited geographical distance as the number-one reason for the split. Dulli lives in Los Angeles and guitarist Rick McCollum now resides in Minneapolis. Bassist John Curley and drummer Michael Horrigan remain in Cincinnati.
In a joint statement the band said, “It was a blast. We’d like to thank everyone who took the ride with us and let us ride with them.”
The band had an alternative hit in 1993 with the song “Gentlemen,” off the album of the same name. The band’s career spanned 14 years and released six albums.
Dulli’s last project was the Twilight Singers, whose Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers was released by Columbia last year.
