Audie and Michelle’s Baby Is Born!

New baby news!: Dax said babie Audie toddles around looking like a miniature Homer Simpson. I said does that mean he is bald? Dax said yeah. He says he is as cute as they come. Dax just saw him around May 27th 1998. He (baby Audie) is just fine, after his heart operation.

A letter from Michelle on December 1, 1997! Read it on the next page!

Here is the email I received July 30, 1997:

Hi, My name is Dawn. I am a close friend to Michelle G., Audie’s girlfriend. Michelle had Audie’s baby on July 25. 1997. It was a 6 lb., 9 oz, 17 inch boy. His name is Audie Layne Pitre. He was having problems with one of his lungs but will be out the hospital in about a week. He’s doing good now.

Thank you Dawn! What great news. We can send cards and checks and gifts, can’t we, fans?

Hi Sandra, Its Dawn here. I talked to MIchelle and she said don’t send anything to the bank! The fund there or whatever doesn’t exist anymore. She said they can be sent to

The new Crowbar album with Sammy Pierre Duet (on backup vocals and guitar) will be released around July 7th on Mayhem/Fierce Records. A tour will follow the release.

Acid Bath, the band

They blew churning out of the Louisiana bayous like a hurricaine, all over the US, Mexico and beyond.

From left to right, Dax Riggs (songwriter, vocals and a whole lotta lyrics,) Audie Pitre (bass, backing vocals,) Jimmy Kyle (drums,) Mike Sanchez (guitar,) Sammy Pierre Duet (guitar, backing vocals.)

Keyboardist Tommy Viator of Galliano, LA is also in the band.

Did you see Acid Bath mentioned in issue #7 of Verotica comic book? Can you find a copy? I can’t. AB is also in Metal Maniacs, with a photo.

The second CD is out! Buy some today!

It’s called Paegan Terrorism Tactics, Rotten Records 3000-2. Yes they do spell it Paegan. Must mean something, but as usual I haven’t a clue. Cover art by Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

Cuts are

  • Paegan Love Song
  • Bleed Me An Ocean
  • Graveflower
  • Diab Soule
  • Locust Spawning
  • Old Skin
  • New Death Sensation
  • Venus Blue
  • 13 Fingers
  • New Corpse
  • Dead Girl

Since AB was on tour when "Paegan Terrorism Tactics" was released, their official Cd release party was at Tipitina’s in New Orleans on Jan 4, 1997. The house was packed to the rafters.
