    Now that Matt is gone, does anybody know where John Greeley went off to? He was an awesome vocalist, and I think he has the potential to carry Iced Earth...

    A quick search on Encyclopedia Metallum didn't bring up anything.

    While he was a great singer, I think part of why he was kicked out of IE in the first place was because he was a jerk...I can't see Jon Schaffer letting him back in.

    Was he the one that refused to take singing lessons? Or was that the first guy?

    I am sorry to say this guys... but Greely is definately not coming in to Iced Earth again. I am sure that if Iced Earth wants to go back to the more thrashy sound then Jon will sing himself. But now it is that Iced Earth already have found a singer, but it is not official YET.


    And btw... Greely sucked. He had no clean tone in life.

    Greely was a full blown racist and Jon would dissolve the band before ever bringing him back.

    Although I think Jon Greely was a good singer, I don't want to here him sing anymore.

    Exactly. I found an old interview with jon on a unnoficial website but can't remember where. He explained that. He even brought him at auschwitz (spelling?) during the world tour to try to make him realize how much racist is shit and he just made some very disturbing comments. Jon kicked him a few days later.

    I can't say I know much about the situation, but I think his work on Stormrider was awesome!
