matt marquez on drums

Those Georgia-based metalheads Norma Jean invited Eyes Like Diamonds drummer Matt Marquez to pound the skins on the band’s ongoing U.S. and Canadian tour, which will run until December 18. (And take a gander at Matt’s gorgeous new Pearl Masters MCX kit in Diamond Glass finish in the photo at left. Meow!) We’re unsure about the status of former Norma Jean drummer Chris Raines, who replaced the band’s original drummer Daniel Davidson in 2008. If anybody can fill us in, write to and we’ll update this news item.
