Yeah and TBE have basically died since the new guy joined. Their Facebook page is dead, Glenn has started his own solo career and tours with Clint etc. The crap about him holding the band back makes no sense.
Just saw your post! I don't get the early TBE hype, I love all of their tunes but definitely prefer the more melodic stuff on Imago and FCoK. The latter took a long ass time to sink in before proceeding to ruin most other bands for me.
