The frontman of rock band Seether, label mates of Evanescence, reckons he might have been responsible for the departure of co-founder Ben Moody from the chart topping band. Seether’s Shaun Morgan has been dating the other co-founder of Evanescence, Amy Lee. He reckons it was their relationship that angered Moody, leading to the guitarist to break his creative partnership with Lee and quit the band midway through their European tour.
Writing, somewhat vitriolicly, on his band’s website Morgan writes an open message to Evanescence fans: “Right now you need to A.)Blame Ben Moody’s shitty attitude, and subsequent leaving of Evanescence on somebody, namely me. (Feel free to look up any big words in the dictionary or ask your Mommy). B.) Consider the fact that the guy really isn’t the greatest guitar player in the world and that Evanescence might be better off with somebody else. (Oh my God, did I actually dare to write that about the great Ben Moody?) C.)Grow the fuck up. The only person I have to care about in Evanescence is Amy, and I really couldn’t care less about Ben Moody or any of the skanky hoes he bangs on the road. Get a life and try to understand that your hero is nowhere near as cool as you think he is.”
He ends up his rant with a message to Moody: “Now, drink your milk, have your cookies and go to bed before Mommy gets angry”.
