Thank god he is wisest enough to understand brands and went away from Thrice with this.
I don't agree with his views, but then again, I'm not 31 with a wife and kids. I'm glad I can always proudly wear a Thrice shirt and stand by that band from start to finish.
There are quite a few bands that I can't say the same for, from the one-good-record, er EP, like Saosin (seriously, that name should be synonymous with greatness.. what the fuck is this about http://www.last.fm/music/Saosin/+charts
it's really unfortunate they continued on without AG) to the many bands who just start to flounder five or six albums in.
Long live DK and long live Thrice. As separate entities, if that must be.
