Huge success can do much for the wallet but not much for unity among musicians. As John LeCompt and Rocky Gray leave the band the only member now who has been their since their 2003 breakthrough is lead singer Amy Lee.
The band doesn't have much of a track record for keeping members. The only constant seems to be Amy. Last year co-founder/lead guitarist quit, following him was the bassist. However, as the latest drummer and guitarist have now quit Amy Lee promises not to stop.
On the band's official webpage Amy spoke about the recent departures, "Evanescence is alive and well. John and Rocky were in Evanescence for four year and we shared some great times together playing live, but they were ready to move on and so we have parted ways. 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."
Rumours are swirling and feelings seem to be hurt as different sides of the stories seem to surface. But for the fans out there the only important thing to know is that their summer tour will carry on with fault.
