The increasingly one-woman band that is Evanesence has lost a couple more members, with Amy Lee firing John LeCompt and Rocky Gray walking out in sympathy. LeCompt blogged about his cashiering:
"Our common goal was always the same. To make Evanescence the best rock band it could ever be. I have always given blood, sweat and tears to make that happen but apparently that is not enough. I have now become just another of the people fallen by the wayside on the revolving door of her life. It's funny how many of us there are now. I guess it's good for lyrical content, though. Maybe I will be among the blessed to have a song written about me, too. Maybe the song will be 'Call Me When You're Broke'."
It's fascinating that Amy Lee seems to be going about becoming solo by a really circuitous route. She's always tried to play down the Christian origins of the band - presumably that's why she's behaving with so little compassion or charity.
Wouldn't you love to see LeCompt bring an unfair dismissal suit?
