Ex Three Days Grace Bassist Says Reunion With Ex Vocalist Adam Gontier For HS Honor Was ‘Powerful’
Former Three Days Grace singer Adam Gontier and two members of the band’s current lineup, including bassist Brad Walst and his younger brother, vocalist Matt Walst, were inducted into the Norwood District High School Hall of Honor late last month in Norwood,Ontario, Canada.
During a radio interview, Brad Walst said, “It’s funny ’cause the high school’s been calling us for years. And, obviously, we’ve all had kind of different schedules, and Adam’s been doing his thing and we’ve been doing our thing. And until recently, to be honest, we hadn’t really spoken that much — we’d text and stuff. But Adam’s moved back to the area, and he’s got a great family and a great wife. And we’ve all kind of been chatting and hanging out. Yeah, I called him and just said, ‘They want the three of us’ — they want Matt, Adam and myself. And everyone agreed, and it was, like, ‘Okay, let’s do this.'”
He continued, “So it was pretty cool to see our high school, where you grew up… It’s nice to be acknowledged.”
He added, “It’s funny, ’cause I texted Adam, ‘You made the Hall Of Fame.’ He’s, like, ‘Yup. Straight-B student.’ Laughs But I think just having us together in that room was way more powerful, for sure. So it was a pretty cool feeling.”
