The position of touring guitarist with the Cult has been a ping-pong match between Mike Dimkich and James Stevenson for two decades and recently there was another volley.

Dimkich has left the group to tour with Bad Religion while Greg Heston deals with “personal issues” so, as he did once before, Stevenson has stepped into the role. Dimkich had the role in 1993, Stevenson from 1994 to 1995 when the group broke up and Dimkich returned in 1999 when they reformed.
