According to The Province, a member of the METALLICA tribute band was forced to withdraw as a B.C. Conservative Party candidate in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada following an alleged drinking and driving incident.
Jeff Sprague (pictured below), who is the singer and guitarist for the METALLICA tribute band called DAMAGE INC., was trained as a paralegal at Capilano College, was born in New Brunswick and came to B.C. at the age of 14.
Sprague‘s withdrawal was initially announced as an “unfortunate personal incident” before his online biographical information was quickly taken down and he disappeared from the campaign.
Conservative campaign manager Jeff Bridge said he didn’t “have anything to add.”
DAMAGE INC.‘s sound is described as “high-energy, technically progressive thrash metal.”
