Cocaine Cowboys

Wow, so okay. Sofia hit me up on Facebook chat today with some REAL bad news.

Simon Cruz has left Crashdïet.

First of all, when I read it my eyes almost popped out of my head and I gasped PRETTY loudly. I REALLY, REALLY liked Simon in the band, perhaps not as much as I did Kita, but enough to feel my heart sink. But the more I continued on reading, and the more I’ve thought about it, the whole thing seems absurd. So, this is the message that Crashdïet left:

Dear crashdiet fans

There is a reason for our lack of news lateley. The reason for that is that Simon Cruz has left CRASHDÏET. Well, actually he decided to leave in the midst of our mini tour in Japan… With no notice what so ever.
The last few months have been confusing to say the least and we haven’t been sure of what to make of this… other than that our collaboration with Simon is over.

However… The recording of the new album will proceed as planned and you can expect hear more from us soon!

Yours truly
Martin, Peter and Eric” (Press the statement for source)

So, basically, what we have here, is a Fatal Smile 2.0, but without the bitter consequences of having the band disbanded. And you know, of course, we have yet to hear (if we ever will) Simon’s version of it all, but this smells like a rotten cat you know? Leaving the middle of a tour? Without notice? Sounds quite weird and selfish, but I shan’t be too hard already now.

The only thing I DO know, is that the whole situation sucks HARD, both for the band with all the fuck ups that was caused because of this, but also to the fans who lost a pretty good singers. And also for the band, for losing their THIRD singer. At least this one lasted for two albums instead of one, but still.

Thanks for those years though, Simon. Thank you.
