“Heading into my first Mats rehearsal! Wish me luck,” the flamboyant live performer and frequent practical joker wrote on Twitter today. He then tweeted a story from SPIN about him being the band’s new guitarist.
Reached for comment, a representative for the band said the news was untrue.
As of today, The Replacements have yet to announce the guitarist and drummer who will be accompanying Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson for their upcoming appearance at Riot Fest Chicago, Riot Fest Toronto, and Riot Fest Denver.
