The Kooks Minus Original Bassist, Introduced Replacement


The Kooks


The Kooks' bassist Max Rafferty has officially left the band after a series of on and off status. Cat the Dog's bassist is brought in replacement.

On Wednesday, January 30, it was made official that Max Rafferty is no longer part of the rock band The Kooks anymore. The bassist who had left the band once due to "illness", is leaving for good this time.

The three remaining members of the band will go on with their new album release and a tour which will be supported by a member of their fellow Brighton musician. "Dan Logan, bassist with local Brighton band Cat the Dog will be filling in for the short term," the band said in a statement.

Rafferty left the band the first time in October last year when he rested for four months due to unspecified illness. His bandmates insisted that they could not go on without Rafferty and thus he rejoined the band before making a final departure.

The Kooks plus Logan will begin a U.K. tour on April 22 in Manchester, Apollo. Their tour is to support the sophomore set 'Konk' which will be dropped in stores on April 14.
