William: Yeah, well I mean ending the band was a big part of it. Because, not to get too into it, but certainly I wasn’t necessarily… what’s the best way to put it… I wasn’t necessarily encouraged to talk about my private life because of my band. From my band.
POZ: It would be bad for the fanbase if they knew you were not “available?”

Joe: “Campfire Kansas.” We got it back, and everyone is so excited. That’s one of my favorite bands and I didn’t want to fuck it up. We’re all excited about that....
