Whoever permanently replaces Tony could easily play his stuff, but CREATING it as well as Tony will be a huge task, in my opinion. I'm so bummed about this.
That's a good point. Agreed

Tony is one of the best drummers playing this style. He was a tremendous part of Motion City Soundtrack.

Glad I got to see him kick ass so many times.

So much sadness. I accompany all the other comments about his drumming being another defining thing about their sound. In a scene where percussion is not appreciated, his skill level was astounding. Replicating it won't be easy, and continuing the creative process going forward will be even more difficult. So many of their songs start with "his" riffs.

Just...FUCK. You know?

I seriously hope that whatever he does in his life, he continues to make such impressive music. And I truly hope this doesn't signal the start of a domino-effect on what has been THE defining band in my adult life.

that sucks but i'm sure they'll bounce back

his drumming on "The Worst Part..." is one of the best and most fitting parts i've ever heard

one of the most talented drummers, he really made this band stand out. not really sure if they're going to be that special any more. more same old, same old pop rock i guess with less interesting drumming.

This sucks. I think he got burnt out after Indonesia.

Hopefully claudio can fill the gap again, even if it kills him. Hopefully he committed the songs to memory.

Don't call it a comeback.

The only solution to my heartbreak is to bring on Tyler from the Dangerous Summer. That's the only solution. (school's for fools Tyler!)

Tony, you're amazing.

God damn. What a bum out, he was a fantastic drummer and a huge piece of the band to me.

As others have noted, Tony was a huge part in the sound of this band. Not only was he a technically proficient drummer but he had a creativity that was all his own. Sucks to lose him but I wish him luck in the future. Thanks for being such a huge part of some of my favorite records, Tony!

Such a shame. One of my favourite drummers in the scene. 'Everything Is Alright' would never have been as iconic to me without his drumming!

Is he going to get into comedy? He's a staple on so many shows lately.
