“A lot of my friends know that I have had a solo record recorded for a while and haven’t done anything with it. Likely because it’s a very personal, private effort that I wasn’t ready for anyone to hear. These songs are very low key, sometimes very sad, born out of some heartbreaking circumstances. I hope that there is something here that people might find themselves able to connect with. I admit that it’s a strange record and it’s even mixed strangely. If you do listen, promise me that the very first time you do you turn the lights off and listen alone.”
After working with DW, Woolley was a contributing member and live keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails from 1991-1994. He later joined Rob Halford and John 5 to form the industrial group 2wo as well as his own group VOID.
Jim Marcus wrote a very heartfelt and passionate article in remembrance of his friend James for ReGen Magazine and can be read here.
Trent Reznor spoke of Woolley’s death to Rolling Stone, saying “Terrible news regarding James. I hadn’t crossed paths with him for some time, but always thought of him fondly. He was a fun character to be around, a solid musician and a genuinely good guy. Those of us from that era of the band have been sharing ‘James’ stories … lots of laughs and love and sadness. Wishing his family the very best.”
“Because a number of people have asked, we wanted to make Play and Dry available for Die Warzau fans out there. Both of these are on the upcoming album SuperGangBang, which actually will be released. It’s great to see that people are interested. Thanks so much.”
