That's That Then

Apparently it comes as a surprise to some people that a woman of my age could be a serious fan of an alternative/hard/metal rock band like Three Days Grace. Certainly when I saw them in concert I was easily one of the oldest people there, by quite a bit. Doesn't bother me a bit. I just like what I like. I like all sorts of music, but this band really caught my attention, and not least because of the lead singer's voice, which a friend just described as that of "a shot down angel". Perfect.

So, when I heard yesterday that he has resigned from the band, as far as I'm concerned, that's the end of the band. I have a feeling I'm not alone in that thought. Some bands can indeed bring in a new singer and continue, AC/DC being a notable example. However, it's very unusual.

I have surprised myself in just how upset I am about this. But there it is.


  1. I could see you liking heavy metal. Never heard of them.

    That's the problem with bands. It's the musicians. If he was the one who left, it's probably the best for everyone. Still, it's very hard when bands break up. It's like divorce, the breakup of a family.

    1. It is isn't it? I've seen my son-in-law absolutely agonize over personnel stuff in his band.

      Oh, while I'm here Chris, there's something I must recommend for you, as someone who appreciates music. Here's a man who can "play" with it:

      If you enjoy that, I can supply more:)

  2. The good part is that we have recording technology, so at least what they did is not lost to us.
