Wiggs Rejoins The Breeders As Bassist Joins Wife In Labour

  • 22 August 2009

Rocker JOSEPHINE WIGGS is to rejoin The Breeders to wrap up the band's North American tour.
Wiggs, who left the band in the mid-1990s, will replace current Breeders bassist Mando Lopez, who has been forced to quit the tour so he can be with his pregnant wife, who went into labour on Wednesday (19Aug09).
The band's spokesman tells Rolling Stone magazine that singer Kim Deal reached out to Wiggs and asked her to rejoin the band for their final three shows.
Wiggs last played with the Breeders at a special one-off reunion gig in 2005.
