In a surprising turn of events, former Filter bassist–now Army Sergeant–Frank Cavanagh traveled to Kuwait to join his former band on Filter's "Hey Man Nice Shot" for the Operation MySpace concert.
Cavanagh, who is due to begin his tour of duty later this month, was authorized by the U.S. Army to join the band so that he could be a part of this memorable performance.
"I love the Army and I love Filter," Cavanagh said. "To be able to join Richard and my former band for the first time in nearly six years is a huge honor. To perform this song with the band in Kuwait holds a truly special meaning for me, as I am able to share the musical part of my life with my brothers and sisters who are serving our country."
Filter frontman Richard Patrick said, "It was an honor for us to perform for the troops in Kuwait at the Operation MySpace concert. Having my former bandmate and current enlisted Army Sergeant Frank Cavanagh on stage next to me made this a show that I will remember for the rest of my life."
The band has a new release, "Anthems for the Damned" set to drop on May 4th on Pulse Rex. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
