Reel Big Fish Parts Way With Bassist

Posted by: Rohan Kohli (07/01/07)
Reel Big Fish has announced the departure of bass player Matt Wong.
Message From The BandAfter 16 years he has decided to end his adventures with the Reel Big Fish and begin his aventures as a father! He has decided to stop living the wild rock and roll life and settle down and be a family man. He was never very fond of our constant touring schedule and after he got married a couple of years ago he was even more miserable than ever when he was away from home. As soon as the baby came, he said, "I knew I could never leave again".

Matt honestly is an amazing bassist. Him an his Ernie Ball Sting Ray 5 were a lethal combination. Definitely a very underrated bassist.
