Bass players come and bass players go, that’s what bass players do, but this time, we didn’t see it coming (or rather, going). A mere three months after joining the band, Orlando Milan came to the conclusion that Diesel’s plans for a Canadian tour would prove incompatible with his newly acquired day job and decided to chuck it in the bucket, throw the towel in.
We’re awfully sorry to part with this world class singer and player, but respect Lando’s decision and wish him all the luck in his new career.
A bit of a set back, but once again, Lady Luck was in Diesel’s corner and gave us Matto Kranenburg, a gentle giant from the city of The Hague. Matto, who is equally proficient on electric bass, double bass, guitar and vocals, honed his skills in top notch acts like KANE, SEVEN and SHOCKING BLUE. He also teaches guitar and bass, does school concerts and coaches bands. Matto is a multi-talented musician and covers an awful lot of ground. All in all, the perfect choice for an eclectic band like Diesel.
Welcome to the band, Matto, and stay a while, won’t you?
