Reunited 80s Thrash band ROTTING CORPSE (www.rottingcorpse.net) whose original line up included current SOLITUDE AETURNUS founder John Perez and former DEATH touring guitarist / roadie Walter Trachsler will play their special appearance show at the Donnapalooza Breast Cancer Benefit on April 28, 2007 at the Lone Star Country Club in Coppell, Texas without Trachsler, an original member of the Texas Thrash unit. To make up for Trachler’s absence, GAMMACIDE guitarists Rick Perry and Scott Shelby along with RIGOR MORTIS / TEXAS METAL ALLIANCE vocalist Bruce Corbitt will step up to the plate and fill in for the missing Trachsler. This will be the first time Trachsler has missed a ROTTING CORPSE show in the band’s history and the current members refer to this one time event as the "Watts Without Walt" show. His absence is due to prior commitments with his tour bus company before the band was asked to make a special appearance at the benefit. Donnapalooza is a music event that has been created and promoted by Metal sisters in the Dallas scene to help one of their own that has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Various Dallas based bands have donated their services and KNON’s Thrashing Alan of Hard Time Radio has signed on to emcee the event.
