|AFTER ALL GUITARIST DRIEZE: OFFICIAL GIBSON ENDORSER|
|After All guitarist Drieze is proud to announce that he joined the elitist legion of Gibson endorsers. Check out the pics of the After All axeman sporting his brand new white Gibson Flying V. (Pics by Samyne.)
Drieze has been a Gibson player since the early '90s, using various Gibson models - Les Paul, SG and Flying V - both on stage and in the studio. Special thanks to Gibson Belgium for making the endorsement deal happen.
|TANKARD'S GERRE LOVES AFTER ALL|

|GET BETTER SOON, RONNIE JAMES DIO!|
|Earlier this year, After All included Dio's 'Holy diver' as a hidden track on the current album 'Cult Of Sin'. It is our tribute to one of metal's greatest of all time. After All was supposed to play the support slot on the Belgian date of Dio's European tour. Needless to say we were pretty stoked about this show. We never got to announce this show properly, and we all know why... All we can say now is: get better soon, Ronnie James Dio! You rock!|
