    you never know, this might be just one tiny step towards achieving a great band. it has happened before to plenty of bands and not always with a negative result. and plus, change is never bad, even if it makes things worse... that doesn't really make sense. so i shall stop now. yes.

    That was...well, interesting. Ben was a great guitarist, but on the bright side of things, since Evanescence is so big now, they can probably get someone even better.


    Okay, I have a theory.

    There's a cult. It was created by Wes Borland, and he's brainwashing nu-metal/modern rock guitarists one at a time to be his minions...And soon, once their numbers have grown, they plan to start a revolution and TAKE OVER THE WORLD! WE HAVE TO STOP THEM!

    It's the big guy. You can't miss him!

    Well, Ben was everyhting. All Evanescence had was Amy's voice and his song writing.
    And, actually, Evanescence are these two ppl. Just check the "Fallen" booklet.
    :( I'll miss them... or not! :lol:

    I too, found it shocking. I'm not particularly keen on Evanescence but I appreciate Amy's talent. I was under the impression that the band WAS Amy and Ben and and they seemed pretty tight.

    Wonder what went wrong.

    man that sux bad, the band although really good, i didnt really care for them all that much, they had huge potential, and amy is very talented, my sis is a big fan of them, she will be crushed when she gets the news :( but with me, the going under and bring me to life are really the only great songs, all other are ok, i was really looking forard to their album to see were they take it.....darn maybe they can get a killer tight guitarist like p.o.d did, their new one is better than macros

    No guy stage-dives in the "Going Under" video. Amy does.

    Evanescence is not broken up. They have a replacement guitarist playing for them on their European tour, and unless Ben comes back, he'll play with them on their US tour as well.

    I'm sure there's a reason why he left so abruptly, but who can say for certain? Until we hear something from Ben himself, there's no reason to believe that he's completely broken away from Evanescence.

    The apocalypse is near... soon all the good guitarist will leave the good bands and we will be left with punk-pop bands and boy bands (punk-pop bands are the same as boy bands but with instruments)

    So you're saying that just because you don't like them that much, you don't think they'll last?

    Everyone said Linkin Park wouldn't last when Hybrid Theory came out and look at them now.

    John is their second guitarist. Right now, he's playing Ben's parts and someone else came in to play John's parts.

    I dont think they'll have trouble finding a replacement, because honestly, he was'nt a very good guitarist in the first place, I can play all there songs and I don't even play the guitar, the band rely very heavily on Amy Lee's vocals, if she leaves then and only then are they in trouble.

    He wrote the guitar and that was it, lol.

    The only lyrics he wrote were "My Immortal" and "Haunted."

    Josh Freese (APC) did the drums and William James Boyd, III, Esquire (I love doing that) did bass. It might not say it on the booklet, but I know for a fact that's what went down. :lol:

    I guess you would know better than me Will. What I was trying to say was Ben Moody was a great guitarist that they will have trouble replacing!
