On reading this again, I feel bad for saying Laura didn't want to be there, without pointing out that it's in the last couple of years or so where it all changed, and before that she did a hell of a lot for the band along with myself.

That's all.
--------------------

The new album is more or less at the half way mark of mixing, so it shouldn't be long until the album is complete.

I'm hoping to book a London show quite soon (once the line-up is solid) to get back into the swing of things after this period of inactivity.

Finally, I would like to waste a little more of my time telling you about an e-mail I received...Apparently, because I mentioned that I was sorry if I bitched about Rob recently in an interview, I'm a liar, and I'm told that I had to tell the truth to make up with Rob. If I can lie about Rob, maybe I'm also lying about our previous bass player...If anything, people dislike me for my honesty, and I don't need to lie to make things look better for myself.

Everything I have ever done or said has been in the interest of the band. In the past I may have gone over the top with things I've said or done, purely out of the anger that youth supplies, and these are the times I've apologised for. What I would like to point out (and this is the last time I'm going to bother with anything like this), is that I apologized in case I said anytrhing bad about Rob as a person, I don't think I did, but I don't care either , because I've said sorry just in case. Rob has also said sorry to me, the only difference is that I tend to post it publicly, and Rob tends to not. Mine and Rob's differences were purely business differences. I said in that Interview that I felt like Rob's lack of understanding of the way the industry works was where the real problem lied - I still stand by that. At that point Rob didn't get a few things that I felt were too important to sweep under the rug, and things got worse from there. Does that make me a bad person for speaking up? When Mia fell ill and I took over managing, Laura, Rob, and Steve all agreed for me to take over. If I'm managing a band, then I should, and will, speak my mind - what kind of manager wouldn't do that? A shit one.

The band should not control a manager, they were all happy for me to take over, and they knew that any managerial decisions could not be swayed, so they went into that agreement willingly. I will soon be stepping down and returning to my usual job of being a musician in a band, and I'm looking forward to someone else worrying about all of the other shit that comes with being in a band.

As for our previous bassist, if you think it's my fault she's gone (that's the vibe I'm getting from some people), then you couldn't be more wrong. SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE HERE, how much more clarity can I put into this? We will now have a bassist that WANTS to play shows, wants to rehearse, wants to write, wants to get big, and wants to be in AREA 54. Laura didn't want to make it big, that's fine, but for fuck's sake, stop blaming the frontman for everything every time a band falls apart...If I'm lying, then it's quite amazing that Rob, who is also not in the band would agree with me, as well as Steve and those that were closest to us. I also have no ill feeling towards Laura anymore, As Metallica once said, I won't waste my hate.

That's a lot of waffle.

I love you all, and keep an eye out on here, more news to follow shortly I expect.

Sounds like a hundred and one things going on there!!

Lots of good stuff too.
Can't wait for the album ( is it possible to explode from excitement do you think???)- and hope you get a good gig date ( namely saturday so i can go Wink ) _ It will be brilliant to see 54 live again.
Sounds like there is some hope really that the band is looking and feeling a bit happier Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Shocked about the email thing - can't believe someone actually said that - hope it isn't anyone who calls themself a fan!

All i can say is good on you for telling the truth- i don't think i've witnessed anything apart from that - as much as the truth can sometimes hurt!
Was sorry to hear about Mia - hope she is doing ok.


Hugs to you 'n' Stevio.

See you / hear you soon!!!!!

xxx

Ps - can i have maple syrup on my waffle please??

Damned if you do, and your damned if you don't!

But at least you are honest, and will ammend what you say where needed, that makes you more of a man than most!

Fuck those that say anything else! Your fans respect you because you keep us in the know and up to date with everything! So let people bullshit, they won't get anywhere!

TBH lakis, you can do and say what you like, and if your feelings change over time, then go back and say something else, when YOU feel like it!
