Reel Big Fish lose bassist

Matt Wong has left Reel Big Fish to spend time with his family.

The band posted the news on their myspace saying that after 16 years, Wong wanted to concentrate on being a father and settle down with his family.

They went on to say Wong was never fond of the touring lifestyle and as “soon as the baby came, he said, “I knew I could never leave again”.

The band have brought in their friend Derek Gibbs to take over on bass and will be release their new album Monkeys For Nothin’ And Chimps For Free in July.
