Saviour Machine frontman Eric Clayton is back with a new band Eric Clayton And The Nine, recently he posted the following on facebook:
Five years ago Eric Clayton’s life was in turmoil. What’s new, right? Ever since he formed Saviour Machine in 1989, in sunny California, with his brother Jeff, it seems much of his artistic career and his private life has been cursed rather than blessed. The stories about banishment, mismanagement and business relationships gone sour are legion. The man even felt the need to write a book about it because it was impossible to explain everything anymore in an interview. And yes- there’s also the stories about some album that remains unfinished.
But this time it was serious. In 2004, Eric got diagnosed with Barrett’s Esophagus, a condition that got worse over the course of some years.
