Auf seiner Myspace seite hat sich ex-THE USED Drummer Branden Steineckert zum Ausstieg bei THE USED geäußert, der scheinbar nicht ganz so freundschaftlich war, wie usrsprünglich dargestellt.
Hier sein Statement:
"Kicked out of The Used- my brief letter
Fans & Friends,
As you may have heard I'm no longer in The Used. Quinn, Bert and Jeph have agreed that they no longer want to play music with me. Im truly sorry that it has come to this. I wanted you to hear it from me. It makes me so very sad, breaks my heart. The band will carry on and I will cherish my good memories. I am so proud of what the four of us little nobodies from Utah accomplished. We broke out from nowhere, we overcame so much, some say we helped pioneer a genre. I feel so very grateful for the things Ive experienced, the touching stories I've heard from such die hard fans, the incredible people I've met and places I've been. I'm such a lucky person. The Used fans are so real and were such an inspiration on stage to look out into your faces and scream, sing, cry, bleed and sweat together. To anyone who ever supported The Used during my time with the band.....I thank you sincerely. I don't know what else to say...
I wish Quinn, Bert and Jeph all the best! I wish them all the happiness and success that they can achieve. I hope they continue with the amount of success we've had and more. I will carry on doing what I love which is playing drums and
producing bands. I've got a lot left to give and share with the world. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support!! Keep the demos coming in. See you soon...
