Drowning Pool

An Interview with guitarist CJ Pierce

November 2014

The superstitious better say their prayers, because Drowning Pool is bringing the “unlucky” full force. After 13 years, the band is re-releasing their 2001 album ‘Sinner.’ The expanded reissue is a two-disc set with remastered originals as well as 13 demo tracks including “Soul” and “Hero Sleeping”, the last song to be recorded with the band’s first singer Dave Williams, whose untimely death in 2002 at the age of 30 marked an unlucky end to a rising star. The current tour is a chance for new fans to see some of these classic songs live. Max Ink caught up with guitarist CJ Pierce out on the road.

As a fan of the band, it was extremely difficult for me to not want to scream and drool all over when I saw them walking into my work. I work at a restaurant in Green Bay, and we held a concert for Pop Evil and Buckcherry on August 13th.
