He was the obvious replacement, but im not so sure he'd be the absolute best. We'll see.

Bring back Jesse Leach with an AOJB tour. Any fan of the band is going to be disappointed with anything less.

Seriously though, the band has run its course so all that's left is one last nostalgia run.

Thanks. Nice to be back into the publishing side of things. Spent like ... 2? years ... so focused on the coding and designing of the new website, that I haven't been able to focus on the other part of this that I love: the music, the forums, the news, the writing. Can't wait to soon combine the two! Wonder twins style.

Yeah you kinda seem like a giddy little kid occasionally these days when posting stuff like that "Chinese Democracy" thread or the AWS thing you just posted. Cool to see.

And yeah, we can't wait to see the combination either, needless to say.

the exact quote is
Quote:
I've spoke with Vaughn Lewis at Strong Management (KSE's manager) today concerning auditions but that is all I can say for now.

"spoke with" doesnt necessarily mean they contacted him. something as simple and meaningless as sending an unsolicited email saying he wants to audition could be considered speaking with them.

It's going to be so tough to replace Howard. This guy's screams are on point, but I'm not sure about the cleans.

This exactly. A new album with Jesse would be cool too but if he's not their "new" singer then it's really time to call it quits.

I really hope he doesn't get the job, dude is an asshole. There's a reason he got fired from Divine Heresy and it's not because he can't hit the notes.

You're think of Lynn, he died 13 years ago in a car accident.
