Suddenly news about the world’s most famous drumming son, Jay Weinberg, is all over the place. Today we heard that he has accepted the drum chair with the NYC hardcore outfit Madball. Expect al helll to break loose.

Singer Freddy Cricien said, “I’m very excited to have Jay on board. Regardless of his pedigree, he had to try out like anyone else. He proved that he’s a natural!”

To which Weinberg added, “Having grown up as a huge fan of hardcore and the New York scene, it’s an honor to play with the most talented individuals that this genre has to offer!”

Get this — even though Madball hasn’t yet recorded a note with Weinberg, the band insists that it will have anew release available in September, 2010. Call Guinness.
