Re: 'Personnel Change'

I'm very hopeful for Todd but he's not there yet in terms of being fully integrated into the music and it is what it is. I do think Benny added a big emotional charge to the band and his playing with Ryan gave the shows some much needed energy - so he is missed at this point - but again I think Todd needs time to get in the groove with the band.

'Sweet Illusions' sounds weird without Cat's backing vocals.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

i see The Unknown Band listed as playing this Thursday's show, but I wonder about the Greek and the shows after that - with Todd's wife's due date approaching, what's the plan?

I heavily doubt Mike will come back after Ryan's nasty remarks earlier this year

I do remember seeing people saying a while back that he had something harsh regarding Mike. What was said exactly?

Re: 'Personnel Change'

basically called him a sell out by saying he went "corporate" or some nonsense.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

It really wasn't that "nasty," especially considering some of the things he's said before.

But I suspect Mike is out. Very interested to see what the plan is moving forward. Still wish that Red Rocks show was with the stringdusters, not just as them opening.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

Maybe nothing happens and Todd just stays out on the road and he knew that signing up for the gig.

such is life of the travelling musician sometimes.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

Yeah, it probably beats sitting at home not making a dime. And after all the tour looks like it's ending in October, so it's not like he's choosing a life of touring over his family.

Violas not coming back. I just love the guy.

Anyways as far as the remarks go I don't think they were nasty. That interview when stairway tomparadise came out viola said s lot of things that made what happened last year pretty evident ie he didn't really want to make a new record But Ryan had been helpful in changing his songwriting process-- but he also said he never really played or wanted to play outside of LA either. So he wasn't too big on touring all the time. Anyways it provides context to what Ryan and I'm assumed the two of them had talked about it at length.

Yeah this.

I'm not sure why it's a mystery.

Also having a kids not cheap and half the band (la sera) can't tour so him
Joining the unknown band I think makes sense from a financial point

Re: 'Personnel Change'

I don't think Todd would miss too much time, but I figured he'd at least try to be there when the baby was being born. Sort of how baseball players miss a few games when their partner's give birth, before re-joining the team for the rest of the season.

Maybe he'll miss a few shows and they just roll on without him. Maybe he misses none. But I wasn't really expecting a suspended absence... just a couple of days.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

After these three shows they have, what, two weeks off or more right?

Hopefully that windows big enough for baby wisenbaker to make his grand entrance

Re: 'Personnel Change'

I know we don't know.. but what happened to Benny?

Last night Ryan once again praised Aaron for jumping in and learning all the songs in two weeks because Nate likes to go to bed early. Paraphrasing.

He never says the same thing to Todd. Not to knock drummers at all, but guitar is a lot less forgiving when you are learning dozens of new songs. Maybe Todd knew them.. Still strange that Benny's departure isn't mentioned if he's willing to talk about Nate's.

Todd is amazing. So is Benny. Love what both of them have done for the songs.

***
Also in regards to baby Wisenbacker. He may have come last night. Todd said it might be happening.

Re: 'Personnel Change'

He called Nate a baby man, said that two weeks prior to tour he told the band he didn't know if he could manage "cause we stay up super late til 11:30" ... then called him a "fucking golden girl"

Re: 'Personnel Change'

I think he's joking around

If the split wasn't amicable I doubt Nate would keep following him on social media.
