OMG! What rock have I been living under. Duh! I had no idea that Amy was the only original band member left. Not that it really bothers me, I love her sound. As long as her style doesn't change too much, I'll continue to follow.
Have we even got a real reason why John got fired. Most fans already know by now that Rocky decided to quit awhile back.
Kind of funny how all of the original members have left (or been fired) besides Amy. Hmm...
Well, since Amy Lee founded the group, she can't exactly be fired! She gets to do the firing...leave her be...she's not a bad person and she's a good singer. She keeps the name because she came up with it. It's that simple.
Well, from my perspective, Amy Lee IS Evanescence. It would be like Rage against the machine having what's his name join the band and keeping the name. they play two completely different types of music, you know. ok, rambling.
I don't really care what she calls it--I love her music. And if she's the one who started the band, then she has the right to use the name if she wants. Personally, I think they've improved--The Open Door is my favorite album so far.
