    I guess these bands ahve different reasons for splitting up, but think for a minute and ask yourself this? How much longer do yout think these groups would have stayed together if they had gotten along better or cooperaated more? A year or two? Maybe more? Who knows? Maybe woe would have gotten more great music out them don’t you think? A damn shame anyway, but life does go on, doesn’t it?
