Since all of you are in the band apparently there's obviously no need for me to clear things up...You have to give respect to earn it, which he did not. And I have always written all of our music save for a few parts here and there like leads Ryan did on SW. Ryan wasn't in the way lol, money between him and I was not an issue or even talked about. And we didn't have a 2 week last minute tour. It was a tour confirmed months prior and we were 3 of 5 on the ISS headliner which sold out most nights. Ryan called me 4 days before the tour and said he was thinking about not doing it. What you failed to mention was that Ryan ended up doing the tour because I offered to pay him an additional 250 out of my own pocket if need be on top of the end of tour pay out just to get him to do it, because he wasn't going to. If you don't think that backing out of a tour 4 days before YOUR band leaves (without any prior communication about financial issues) is cowardly, irresponsible, and downright wrong, then you have something wrong with you. I was completely understand about having to pay bills, I got kicked out last year just like ryan did and I slept on a floor while I tracked 3 bands because that's what determination is. Despite the limited brain power you obviously have, if you can't post actual facts then don't post at all.
