Mike Henderson exits The Steeldrivers

| December 8, 2011 | 2 Comments

Founding member Mike Henderson has announced his departure from The Steeldrivers.

More details are expected from the band next week, but for now, this note from Mike on his web site is all that we have.

Dear Friends and Fans,

It sure has been a great six years, all the sold-out shows, great festivals and two grammy-nominated records of which I will always be very proud. This was all made possible by you, and I thank you from the bottom of a grateful heart.

Now, for personal reasons which have nothing to do with me or my family’s health or well being, the time has come for me to say goodbye. Don’t worry I’ll be around and you’ll be hearing from me soon. I leave the SteelDrivers in the capable hands of my bandmates and I know they won’t let us down as they move forward.

I’ll always cherish the wonderful memories of getting to meet so many of you great folks. Thanks again and may God bless you all.

Peace & Love,

Mike Henderson
