I know I like to rag on Amy Lee for messing up bands (Cold, Seether, Evanescence). I am usually only slightly truthful, but today I bring sad (and true) news. Amy Lee of Evanescence and longtime beau Shaun Morgan of Seether have called it quits. I could not find a cited reason, but I imagine Seether's hard-core fans may have not liked Morgan's sappy duet of "Broken," and thus blamed Lee for Seether's softness. This perceived "softness" on Morgan's part may have driven a wedge between him and his fans. But of course this is all speculation, because maybe they just got plain sick of each other. At any rate, Morgan is now about twice the size of when he appeared in this picture. When I saw them in concert in November at the Rave, I wasn't sure if I would be able to tell Shaun from a ragged bum on the streets! Whatever the reason, I can no longer blame Amy Lee......
.....Speaking of Amy Lee, where the heck has Evanescence gone? I had always toyed with the idea of them being a one record band, but now it appears more realistic. A check on their website only states the band is "...in the studio working on new music." I did hear that Amy Lee's music was denied from the "Narnia" soundtrack (for being too dark), but that has been about it. It has been a long time since 2003's debut Fallen.......... How much longer will you make your fans wait?
