Quote from: Teunis on Sat, 2010-10-23, 12:58:48Yeah, I've read that too on FB. I'm with you, hoping for mr. Reed as singer, but the distance (the reason that he was sacked with Pallas) could be a problem.

Quote from: PH on Sat, 2010-10-23, 17:49:42A big possibility.I wouldn't mind if it were him, although I cannot imagine him singing Arena songs yet...Could it also be Mac (ex-Threshold)? (I was listening to some Threshold today )
Quote from: JJ II on Mon, 2010-10-25, 16:36:46In the past Arena have never chosen any member with much of a history or back catalogue. John Jowitt was the only one, simply because he sort of offered himself (and he had worked with Clive before). Remember: even Mitchell was a name without a face back in 1996. So: no Wilson, Reed or Mac, I'd say. Secondly: their usual 'modus operandi' is "to go through word of mouth, rather than advertise, because although you might find someone, you don't really know them for a long time (source: C.Nolan in "The Salt and The Sand")."They found Mitchell through Mark Westwood (their roadie, businesspartner to Jowitt) and Rob through Mitchell. Ian was in Shadowland with Clive. If this modus is consistent, the new singer will be: someone known to a member of the band but with little or no work of his own.
QuoteThe thesis that Arena takes unknown singers has some modifications. E.g. Clive recorded Caamora She with Alan and Christina and toured with them.

QuoteMac's departure from Threshold was far from friendly.

Quote from: JJ II on Thu, 2010-10-28, 09:36:09Great voice! Personally, he reminds me more of Paul W. than of Rob... I can hear him sing The Visitor, or even Sirens!
