    Default Evanescence: Fires guitarist & drummer...

    Evanescence cans guitarist, drummer

    • Evanescence guitarist and drummer leaving
    • Guitarist John LeCompt says he was fired
    • Drummer Rocky Gray won't discuss situation
    • Band has had personnel changes over the years

    NEW YORK (Billboard) -- The guitarist and drummer with Evanescence have left the top-selling rock act for undisclosed reasons.


    Guitarist John LeCompt claimed on his MySpace.com blog that he was fired during a cell phone conversation with singer Amy Lee, while drummer Rocky Gray said he was asked by band management not to discuss the situation.

    However, Lee said in a statement that Evanescence remains "alive and well" and will soon return to the road with new musicians.

    "John and Rocky were in Evanescence for four years and we shared some great times together playing live, but they were ready to move on and so we have parted ways," she said. "Evanescence is something I have loved and nurtured since I was 14, and I will continue to protect and fight for it as I always have.

    LeCompt did not paint the situation so rosily on his blog. "Without any warning or negotiations for my future, I was fired for no good reason," he said. "We have not always seen eye to eye on everything, but who does? 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."

    LeCompt was referring to the messy 2003 departure of founding guitarist Ben Moody, who was replaced by former Cold principal Terry Balsamo, and the 2006 exit of bassist Will Boyd, who was replaced by former Revolution Smile guitarist Tim McCord.

    Lee said no shows would be canceled due to the lineup shift, but the group won't have long to draft replacements for LeCompt and Gray. It is due to return to the stage May 19 at the first Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, and has European dates on tap through late June.

    Who the fuck is Amy Lee?
    A liar sucks way more than any asshole. Trust me...I'd know. I'm an asshole and that's not a lie.

    Amy Lee looks like someone left Ann Wilson under the fridge for about 17 months.

    Gwen on both counts. No doubt.
    From what I can tell, Gwen was always cool with her bandmates
    and her decision to go solo was only inevitable. Whereas Amy just
    seems petty and selfish. No worries, I'm sure the new record will
    still suck just the same, as I'm sure I'm embarassed that I even
    replied to this thread.
