Damn, that was quick. In the midst of a Canadian tour, Jay Weinberg was relieved of his duties in Madball. Frontman Freddy Cricien posted the following to the band's Facebook page:
I’m letting Jay go in Canada because I just feel he doesn’t represent this band well on a character level. It would go against my own code of ethics to keep him around. Not saying he’s a bad drummer. I won’t take that away from him. But the reality is – he has a lot to learn about paying dues, and about life in general. Granted, he is a kid, but I’m not sure that he’ll ever be built for this particular lifestyle. I wish him the best of luck, but the MADBALL machine rolls on!
Well, that leaves little to the imagination. Reading that all I kept thinking was, umm, what do you expect? We may present a little bias, because we hung out with Jay a few months ago, and he seemed like a pretty level headed guy and very excited to be in Madball. I'm curious as to what exactly put it over the top.
The band has stated they have found a replacement drummer and the tour will continue as scheduled. I'm sure Jay willl land on his feet somehow.
