Evanescence Singer Strikes Back


EvanescAmy Lee‘s back from her honeymoon, and she’s pissed. Writing on her band’s official message board, Evanescence‘s lead singer is finally discussing the departure of her former bandmates. After two weeks away, Lee says she returned home to find "I was unable to defend myself for a week and was taken advantage of quite a bit." Lee then shares with her fans her version of Rocky Gray and John LeCompte‘s departure, claiming they were "miserable" and planning to leave, and that she simply relieved them of their duties a little sooner than they’d anticipated. "I treated both John and Rocky with nothing but kindness and respect, and I got nothing but jealousy and resentment in return…I love this band too much to see it driven into the ground." This is not the first time the band’s had some personnel issues. In 2003 LeCompt took over after co-founder Ben Moody suddenly quit, due to a rift with Lee.

    Poor amy when i get my band going i will ask you to join

  14. Christobel says:

    Amy, no worries, you are best female vocalist currently in the world. Imo. And you’ll find you don’t need a band, solo pianist would suit you best, you can still write your be-loved songs and continue to rock our minds. So many fans who love you and your work, don’t like 3 guys mess up your fame, and our love for you.
    Continue to rock for us please, we need your lyrics of power and wisdom to help us all. Hope your marriage goes best as all.
    Love, your biggest fan.

    Amy gets married and goes on a honeymoon and returns to find her band members have quit? What??? This sounds like a pure case of jealousy and unprofessional behavior. Maybe the beautiful Ms. Lee did not realize her band members had all fallen in love with her and wanted to marry her.

  18. chris says:

    Dare I say DIVA??????????Its not me its you??? Sorry it is you. And I am a fan of yours but sometimes your attitude sucks. Does not mean it is right. Hopefully you find people more apt to do what you want and more simlar to yourself. Sometimes you have to repect your differences and make the best of it.
