Re: Grave Dancers Union turns 20!

I was a year and a four months old. :P I feel pretty young until I see comments like that! I was thirteen when the album came out - I'd never heard of them, but loved "Somebody to Shove"; I was just getting into metal and punk and it had the vibe I was digging. I also dug the other singles, but the...

Re: Dan's status with the band

My husband (who got me into SA in the first place) and I work dissimilar hours, and I often futz around on the Internet when he's not around; when he calls me on his meal break, he asks, "So, any news on the Dan Murphy front?"

Alas, I have to keep telling him that there is not.

Hmmm. It's a tempting thought, if it was the last show. Hopefully not....

Re: Dan's status with the band

Better to be careful what you say than to speak hastily. Words to live by, certainly. And I second (or 322nd) the hope that Dan's aware of the esteem in which fans hold him and the other gentlemen. Truly, what's made me such a fan is twofold: It's obvious that I'm a fan of the music itself; it take...

As a (very) new member, I was really pleased to have the opportunity to speak with so many of you. Don't be strangers!

Re: Dan's status with the band

I concur with YazMcBoo and philgar , who expressed feelings I think I've alluded to myself: Music fans (myself included) are loath to think of bands/music as products and themselves as consumers; it brings to the fore the commoditization of music, which seems, somehow, to sully the art. However, whe...

Re: Dan's status with the band

From what I understand, Mr. Carlos had back problems for quite some time and everyone kind of saw that one coming. Oh, definitely. I more just meant the end result might be similar (only doing recordings). I kind of think of the possibility of a line-up alteration like this: If the band makes some ...

Re: Dan's status with the band

I was mighty surprised to see that I'd posted a thread! ;) As others have said, "...we'll be in touch shortly with more info" doesn't sound like "Dan's still a full-time member and couldn't make Spain 'cause of an emergency root canal/his cousin's kid's christening/illness in the family". Unfortunat...

Re: Let's not jump to conclusions.

For what it's worth, I sent a private message via the official Facebook page: I essentially explained that there's a rumor floating around here, what the rumor is, and why it got started/how it was perpetuated. I then asked that someone quickly make an official statement, out of a sense of fairness:...

Re: Let's not jump to conclusions.

I concur with your assessment; while it's certainly within the realm of possibility that he's moved on, I don't think one missed show and an anonymous source of unknown credibility are ample evidence to prove anything.
