Roi quitting the band

Do you guys think we'll ever get the back story on why Roi quit the band during those second sessions with Batson?

    I don't know if he actually did quite the band and had to be talked down by everyone in the band, but I do remember reading on these boards that thestand almost nearly logged on here once to announce the band itself is no more. So this scenario might actually have happened.

    Still think, aside from production maybe, that the second batson sessions would've been better than the last two albums they released.

    Re: Roi quitting the band

    Tour Central has these songs recorded during that time

    Shotgun
    The Idea Of You
    Break Free
    Break For It
    Corn Bread
    Sister
    Kill The King
    Sweet Up and Down
    A Dream So Real
    Falling Off The Roof


    Then add in #27 and Eh Hee, both played around that time as well, and that album is better than the last two

    I once knew his name, but forgot it. His username here is thestand. Rarely posts in DMBc nowadays. He had knew people who knew band members, if he didn't have direct access himself.

    Did he not walk out of the 2007 Batson sessions?

    Re: Roi quitting the band

    That was before I actually had an account with ants, but I remember it pretty well and being a little freaked out, but also took it with a grain of salt. If I remember the 07 Vegas shows almost didn't happen. The rumor came out after the shows but speculation was that was why the summer tour got off to a late start that year.

    After the Big Whiskey docs and press came out for the album, it settled in that it could have happened. I'm very glad it didn't.

    Still crazy that he was the main reason for them considering a break up, and then a year later he was gone.

    Me too. I'm glad he gave 07 a shot and we have some great shows from that tour and 08 to listen to him refreshed on.

    And if he had quit would he have gotten that blood clot? I know I'm going to far into hypotheticals

    Maybe. Or maybe the accident happens in 2007 when he has more free time. You Never Know.
