And John should do what he wants. If he currently does not want to talk about "the band" and does not want to perform - fine. As long as he's creative, healthy and happy, he should not be a performance monkey in hands of some fat guys in suits who probably have their own ways of controlling fragile types. Music industry is evil and even though the small labels are full of minority-complex filled I KNOW A FAMOUS PERSON WOW types, at least there are no shackles of the LOOK LIKE THIS, PERFORM LIKE THIS, WE INVENTED THE STORY OF YOUR REDEMPTION AND USED YOUR BELIEFS AS MARKETING BUZZWORDS mafia.

We "miss" people we never met, bands when they're not touring, we give strangers the lives we made up for them and in most cases, this fantasy has nothing to do with truth.
