New guitar player leaving

  • New guitar player leaving

    So it seems our new guitar player is leaving us. A tweet by Jonathan Salas last night at 11:07 said this:

    "Tks 4 the luv & support! had fun, just didnt work out. In nashville working on my next project. Keep yall posted!"

    So, what are your thoughts? Does this seem to quick? Did you like Salas? I'd like your opinions.

I posted a complete response to this on the Do you the Jonathan Salas can shred thread so I won't rehash everything here. Suffice it to say sometimes things just don't work out the way you'd like them to. Skillet will be fine, and Jonathan Salas is a very talented guy who you will definitely be hearing more from in the future. Best wishes to Jon and Skillet.

Salas was actually really good... My brother thankshe actually might be better than Ben (:o)
But, when I found out his name, I looked him up, and it turned out that he had been performing artist before he joined Skillet. I then listened to some of his music (which I thought was pretty good) and it's WAY different than Skillet's style... So, assuming that he left on his own, that may just be why.

Where it says "thankshe" it's supposed to say "thinks he"

I'm so sad ;( I was hoping he would work out. I thought he would fill Bens place at least a little. Do u know what they will do now? Will they get a new guitar player? I guess we will find out!

Not really sure about any details. Ben's back for a while until they can find a replacement.

Even through the darkest day this fire burns always.
