not that I know diddly squat about this, but a friend of mine said he bumped into Danny at a Whole Foods this past weekend.

He had to stock up on groceries, that's why he missed this past show!!

"There's going to be an official statement"? Yikes, that doesn't sound good. :?

I can't imagine Soul Asylum making an official statement to say that Dan Murphy is STILL the guitarist of Soul Asylum. Needing to make an official statement means there's something we need to hear.

Well, I'm still staying positive because I can't imagine a world with Dan Murphy not being in Soul Asylum.

Also, I hope we don't hear that he's in poor health. Here's to hoping for the best for both Soul Asylum and their fans!

Kinda says it all, it made no sense anyway that they have another guitarist learning all the songs they played that night (and pretty tight I might add, judging from the youtube clips) if it would have been for just one gig. They could have relied on only Dave for one show. Hopefully Danny's still in but doesn't want to do every single gig anymore or something like that. Because if he's out for sure, then I think for most fans it's the end of the band... even if Dave continues with the name.

Ugh... this whole thing is seriously making me sick at my stomach. I so hope it's not true
Oh, Alyssa, me too! I saw something yesterday that led me to think that McKelvey was the stand in for Dan in Spain, does anyone know if he was or if not, who it was?

It doesn't look like him (never saw him wear a hat either). Biggest give away I think that it isn't him is that he is playing with his left hand (McKelvey was a righty).

Thanks Jim,
I guess you don't know who it was, though?

I don't know anything and don't want to add anything to the rumor mill. Just wanted to say that if it is true, Dan will be missed and this makes me really sad. I just hope I can still see him play from time to time with Golden Smog.
