Spin Interviews Against Me!, We Find Out Jay Left Band via Twitter

Posted by - 12:08 PM on 01/17/14
In a new interview with Spin, Against Me! details some behind-the-scenes band stuff that I hadn't read before. Like that they found out Jay left the band by reading it on Twitter.
To be honest, I have no idea. He never said a word. I just woke up one morning and read on Twitter that he was leaving the band.

I heard Jay is a childish person. This just proves that point even more.

In the interview the interviewer starts talking about Black Me Out and asks Laura if the rumors are true that "the song is about..." to which Laura interupts him mid sentence and says "the rumors arent true." Doe anyone know what this rumor is?

All of these interviews have been really great lately, and it's awesome that there is so much different content in them.

Can't believe Jay left like that

He's probably an entitled rich kid, from his dads fame.

Probably right. I never met him but his onstage appearance seemed pretty relaxed and happy to be there.

Huh, that's shitty. He was an amazing drummer though; you could tell it brought a whole new energy to the band, especially on the newer songs. Russian Spies 7" is still some of their best material.

Being relaxed and happy while performing means that you're entitled? I thought that was just called being a good musician.

I never said those two were related. All I'm saying is that my only interaction with the guy was seeing him happy and playing drums onstage. There were a few people close to the band that said he was more or less a spoiled brat.
