The Vines ex-drummer Hamish Rosser joins Wolfmother

More Wolfmother More Wolfmother

Drummer Hamish Rosser has quit The Vines after ten years to join Wolfmother, citing differences with frontman Craig Nichols.

It was claimed around their Homebake appearance last year that Rosser and guitarist Ryan Griffiths had been sacked after neither played with the band, who appeared as a three-piece.

Today Rosser confirmed that he was no longer in the band and has joined the Andrew Stockdale-helmed Wolfmother.

He'll make his debut with the band at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl tomorrow, Saturday 17 March, before supporting Lenny Kravitz on his Australian tour and upcoming European dates.

Today Rosser told Your Daily SPA “After ten years with The Vines I have made the decision to move on. I will always look back on my time with The Vines with fond memories and a huge amount of pride for what we have achieved and the music we made together.

“On the eve of my first show with Wolfmother I can say that there has been a powerful energy generated during rehearsals and I can't wait to get on stage and tear it up.”
