Jaz Coleman @ Irving Plaza 2008 (more by Tim Griffin)
Jaz Coleman

The following message was posted to the "Jaz Coleman (Official)" Facebook page, and is now making its rounds on the Interweb:

Jaz Coleman, alive and kicking in the Western Sahara

To the relief of family and friends, Killing Joke Frontman Jaz Coleman appeared today from his retreat in the Western Sahara bemused by all the fuss of his disappearance. "I've been finishing my book and writing the score for my new project - (The Nirvana Symphonic) - (laughs), what's all the fuss about then?"

Coleman had apparently been living a nomadic existence for the last month in the desert in order to concentrate on finishing his two current projects. Nirvana looks like becoming a TV show and a concert in Seattle in 2013 and the book and an exclusive Coleman album will be packaged together and available for order as early as next week.

International media picked up on the story last week, sending it global, from the press release announced by the band on the Killing Joke Official Facebook site questioning his whereabouts. Fans from around the world have been more than proactive in their opinions - from random sightings in Christchurch New Zealand, to past recollections of his elusive behaviors in Iceland.

Yet mystery still surrounds the message on Facebook regarding The Cult and The Mission Shows of which Coleman claims no knowledge. 'Looks like this has caused a right ding dong and feel its impossible to continue this tour under the circumstances'. His comments were to wish both The Cult and The Mission the best of luck on the tour, and to find out who has been impersonating him.

I thought he was bathing off the Southern coast of St. Barts with spider monkeys for the past two weeks.

Not professional or mature enough to keep a commitment, made a fool of himself, ran away, lied about it.

Dear god just die already. Nirvana never ripped you off. Get over it.

I'm assuming that's all you know of KJ, right, 2:36? Sounds like trendy hip commenting to me (what a surprise, on BV of all places). Next you're probably gonna tell me that KJ were only good in 1977 (before they even existed!)!

2:36 - What are you talking about? KJ have previously worked with Dave Grohl, who was honored to play with KJ. I'm with 3:48. You should stop typing.

also, nirvana DID ripoff the riff from eighties for comes as you are. It's not even veiled or obtuse, it's just the same riff a little slower.

Nirvana ripped off their entire catalog and schtick from a laundry list of superior bands. KJ is one of them.
