Nina Gordon, a co-founder of Chicago-based rock
band Veruca Salt, has left to pursue other
interests, according to Dennis Dennehy, the band's
spokesman at Geffen Records.
"Nina has left the band and the future of Veruca Salt is
uncertain at this point," Dennehy told JAMTV on Monday. Because Gordon, Veruca Salt
co-founder Louise Post and the rest of the band
spent most of 1997 on the road, Dennehy said the news came as a
surprise to him. He also said he wasn't aware of any internal
conflicts between the two songwriters.
Veruca Salt first received worldwide recognition with the
release of 1994's America Thighs, which spawned the hit
"Seether." The group, which also features bassist Steve
Lack and former Letters To Cleo drummer
Stacy Jones, released their second album,
Eight Arms To Hold You, in early 1997.
Neither Dennehy nor Veruca Salt's management, Q
Prime, had any more information at this time.
