Yesterday, Adrenaline Mob were shocked, SHOCKED!, when they found out bassist John Moyer wouldn’t be touring with the band. In fact, according to them, they found out about it via Twitter. According to Moyer, however, the band’s management had known about it for a while, and he doesn’t know why they didn’t find out beforehand. It sounds like there was a definite lack of communication between Adrenaline Mob and their management, and it also sounds like Moyer would have like to have toured with them again, but probably won’t be any more. He still didn’t address why he’s sitting out the tour. What say you, David Draiman? Here’s what Moyer said about the controversy:
Hey guys, I feel like I need to clear something up. Adrenaline Mob has known for weeks that I would not be going with them on this run. I asked them to issue a press release saying so but Amob management said “no need”. If I wanted to post it on my page that was fine. That conversation happened over a week ago. Once again…I was told by Amob management to post that I was not going out. I’m very confused by the “shock” of my post. I don’t think that management and band were on the same page about my post. Perhaps that was the “shock” they referred to. Unfortunately it also reads as if they didn’t know for sure if I was going out. This is definitely NOT the case. Once again, everyone has known for weeks that I was not going out. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that they’ve already found my fill in and have had some rehearsals with him. My post was for my fans who were assuming I was going to be out with Amob. Out of respect for my fans I asked Amob to please let people know my status. And as I said before Amob management not only cleared me making that post but suggested I do it in lieu of a press release. I would NEVER tell a band that I wasn’t going to go out via Twitter. People that know me know that I pride myself on my professionalism even in less than perfect situations. I love the band and the guys and it is unfortunate that this turned into such a “shit show” as they say. As far as moving forward with the band I was hoping to leave the door open for future tours but that may not be possible now. Thanks for letting me clear that up. Peace!
