Well, it kinda happens to all bands. Either a member is fired or quits and gets replaced, or the band just ceases to exist. Heck, even The Beatles broke up! Who would've thought OPM bands Hale, Bamboo, Sugarfree and more recently, Franco, would all disband at the peak of their careers.
MYXph asked some of our Pinoy musicians, who underwent some band personnel changes of their own, why they think such things happen.
"'Yung dalawang members namin umuwi ng Davao," says Enzo Villegas of the band Eevee. Enzo says he decided to go on performing with his band because "at the end of the day it's how bad you want to play". He notes the importance of bonding time with your bandmates to maintain the group's camaraderie. The band Silent Sanctuary also has had their share of line-up changes since their early years. Singer Sarkie Sarangay says compromise is key to a band's success. He also cites that money can be a really big issue within any band.
Jaq Dionisio talks about what happened to the other members of Kiss Jane. "Nagpalit kami ng drummer at ng lead guitar(ist) pero tuloy pa rin", says Jaq. She points out that it is something that she has accepted saying :"Ganun talaga e. It's up to you if you can handle it positively." Jeff Bolivar of Soapdish clearly emphasizes that if a band member has an attitude problem, then your musical relationship is doomed to fail. Check out the video below for our full interview. Watch Silent Sanctuary, Eevee and Soapdish perform LIVE tonight at the 70s Bistro along Anonas Avenue in Quezon City!
