I have a feeling that it's up to him really if he wants to do it. Cause he wasn't kicked out of the band or anything, he resigned in 2005 from the band instead.
Good point. I always kind of considered him to be their "classic" bassist, even though Josh Newton had a relatively long tenure with them. He had great stage presence, so it's good to see him back, at least for now. Even though it hasn't hurt them creatively, it'd be nice to see some member stability at the four-string for the ETID'ers.
