Is Elijah Blue in Cher's band?

Also, he featured as a guitarist in his mother's music video for the song If I Could Turn Back Time in 1989.
In 1994, Blue was unsuccessful in his attempt to join the rock band Nine Inch Nails as a guitarist. The following year, he gave himself the stage name Phillips Exeter Blue I and formed the heavy metal band Deadsy.

In the social media post on Tuesday, July 14, the band wrote,
We've been labouring for the last two years, as the clarion call of Deadsy has brought us back into a state of making. We could not be more pleased with the yield and its energy.
Our forthcoming album and 3rd release, entitled Subterfugue (Sub-tur-fyoog), will begin its preliminary campaign of content this summer, with the first single and video coming this fall and the album in early 2021.
We know some of you have been waiting a long time for new music and imagery, and we are elated to satiate that desire. We also know some of you are experiencing us for the first time....to that we say, welcome to the hyper-vivid, welcome to the vicious-neutral...welcome to Deadsy.

Who is Elijah Blue Allman wife?
Elijah's wife is Marieangela 'Angie' King. She is also an artist, and her stage name is Queenie. They met through a blind date while he was treating Lyme disease in Germany. They fell in love pretty quickly.
The lovebirds got married on December 1, 2013, in their home in Beverly Hills, California. The couple eloped to get married without Cher being present because she did not acknowledge or congratulate Elijah when he got engaged to Queenie.
When Elijah was asked why he eloped and did not invite Cher to his wedding, he said,
I wasn't going to wait for anyone's approval and congratulations, just like I've never waited for any of that my whole life. The way I eloped with my wife is the same way I've done everything I've ever done. I don't know any other way, and we knew it was the right time.
I've always been the black sheep of my family. The reason being we just have different value systems, and we just have a different mentality, and that clashes a lot. We have lots of ups and downs, and right now isn't the best time. Had we been getting on a little bit better along, maybe it would have been different.
Cher, in return, decided not to invite her son and his new bride to her family's Christmas celebration at her house, which resulted in an angry Twitter rant from Elijah.
