Renholder: Someone let MJK update the APC page

Rumors have been flying around about the departure of Paz Lenchantin from A Perfect Circle, since she's currently playing with Zwan. This situation is explained beautifully on the news section of A Perfect Circle's website:

Paz has been a vegan for many years. As many of you may know, sometimes the lack of protein in ones diet can leave them borderline anemic and, occasionally, a bit delirious. After a festival show featuring APC and the The Smashing Pumpkins, Paz, in a state of meat deprivation, followed a bald man named Billy onto the wrong bus and we havent seen her since. Milk carton photos have, so far, been ineffective. Any help would be appreciated.

Thusforth, there is a new bassist in APC, as rumored for a week or two now: Jeordie White now plucks at the four-strings. If you've been coming to sites like this long enough, you probably know him better as Twiggy Ramirez. There's our Nothing Records 6-degrees of separation link for the day. But wait, there's more!

Continuing down the latest news post at the official site, or if you follow Queens of the Stone Age at all, you'll know that a guy whom the folks at aperfectcircle.us (formerly .org(?)) refer to as Troy Van Halen is also absent from the APC line-up. Who should Billy and Maynard have found to take this place but Danny Lohner. Now, for all those whining about Paz's departure because "she plays violin and bass," fear no longer. Danny is a multi-instrumentalist, and A Perfect Circle has rightly been saved.

With the departure of one vegan and the addition of former members of Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson to a band already notorious for it's frontman's connection to Tool, we are looking into reports about LA clothing shops of large orders of leather, fishnets, and make-up being ordered and billed simply to "APC." (not really)

Thanks to Danny P. first clued us into this update.
