| Hey all. The record is coming along nicely, however it has been delayed a bit by some sad news. Gideon has decided to part ways with Goodbye Valentine. We will miss him terribly as a bandmate but everything was on good terms and we are all still close friends. So if you are/know any amazing bass players (Gid left some big shoes to fill!) drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. |
Here's a note from him:
After seven beautiful and glorious years of playing music and touring with Large Marge, and subsequently Goodbye Valentine, I am parting ways with the band. Recently, I explained to the guys that if they wanted to make a serious attempt at bigger success they should do it without me and find a replacement bass player. If I were to stay in the band, I would be hindering their efforts by not giving it my full attention and honest effort. I love my band mates too much to lead them on, and I will not sabotage their chances in achieving their dreams. As for me, playing in a band full-time does not fit into my priorities at this point in my life. I have an obligation to myself to accomplish a number of aspirations and goals that I have set out for myself, and I feel now is the right time for me to pursue these goals head on. By no means does this mean I will be quitting music, I could never imagine living a life without creating and performing music. Over the last seven years I have had the chance to work with some of the most amazing musicians, I owe so much of my life to this band and the friends that I have made along the way. All of the stages that I have played on, all the cities and states we have toured in, all the friends we have made and fans that I have truly come to cherish and know will always live on in my memories and will always own a piece of my life and my heart. I will miss you all so feel welcome to stay in touch with me on my personal myspace at www.myspace.com/gideonorion.
Love you all, and thanks for the memories.
