Nach sieben Jahren mit der englischen NWoBHM Legende Tygers Of Pan Tang verlässt Gitarrist Micky Crystal die Band. Er hat mit ihnen zwei Alben aufgenommen, das selbstbetitelte Tygers Of Pan Tang und Ritual. Micky sagt zu seinem Ausstieg

“I am proud of the music we have created and the things this lineup has achieved, I have developed and grown both as a musician and as a person and I feel this is the perfect time to open the door to a new chapter and new goals. I wish the band all the best for the future”.

und die Band meint dazu:

“Micky was another great guitarist who made a serious contribution to the work of the band. Following in the footsteps of previous Tygers’ guitarists is never an easy task but Micky carried the torch in style”.
