POWER QUEST say farewell to Guitarist Bill Hudson

POWER QUEST are sorry to announce that after 10 months, Bill Hudson and Power Quest have parted ways. The split was extremely amicable and was down to the fact that both parties were struggling with the logistics of Bill being based in LA and the rest of the band being in Europe.

Power Quest keyboardist and founder Steve Williams commented: "Unfortunately the timescales and costs involved were too great for us to be able to manage in the current climate. We remain the very best of friends and certainly do not rule out collaboration between myself and Bill in the not too distant future. We all wish him the very best for the future with Circle II Circle and his other projects and we look forward to him joining us on stage at PPUSA in Atlanta in September!".

Bill also commented on the news: "Yeah, it's true. I'm no longer in Power Quest and that pretty much sucks. Unfortunately, having to fly back and forth between Europe and the US became a hassle, and I was even having to NOT be present at some shows, such as Hammerfest in Wales. That situation wasn't good for either of us. HOWEVER, you can expect to see me on stage with them at ProgPower USA this year, as well as some other surprises that might just appear here and there! Just to make it clear: I still love those dudes and we're still the best of friends! I wanna thank all of our amazing fans (some of the most hardcore I've ever seen) as well as Manuela, Simon and Paul, who work their asses off to make Power Quest's life easier
on the road!"
