Chad Gray On Mudvayne’s Future: “I’m Not Ready To Put A Headstone On Anything Yet”


You’d think that with the dismissal of Mudvayne guitarist Greg Tribbett from HELLYEAH that the future of Mudvayne would be all but sealed. Despite that, singer Chad Gray—who currently fronts HELLYEAH—said the group have yet to officially call it a day. Speaking in the latest issue of Revolver, Gray was asked directly if Mudvayne was officially over, to which he replied:

“I don’t think so. We all still talk. I’m not ready to put a headstone on anything yet.”

His comments echo a statement made by the band this past March, which read:

“Final Explanation.. Mudvayne is on Hiatus.. With respect to all the band members, we are all doing something in Music that satisfies our appetite right now. When the time is right, Mudvayne WILL be back in action. In no shape or form is this a disrespect to our Fans. We Love our Fans and will give them all they can handle when it is Time. Til then, Patience is needed. Sincerely Mudvayne.. NOW RANT!!!”

Meanwhile, Speaking on if Tribbett‘s firing was particularly hard for him since the two also played together in Mudvayne, Gray offered:

“Yeah, man. He has always been my right-hand man. He’s been the back I look at when I’m writing songs and the sounding board for my ideas. When everything went sideways, it was like losing a great friend. I was filled with fear and I had mixed emotions. At first, I was like Goddamn, I don’t know if I’m ever gonna be able to do this without him.”
