Fuck you asshole. Your writing is more stale than you claim the band to be. LeRoi's death was a tragedy that affected many people, and for you to trivialize it for the sake of your writing and to make a point indicates your insecurity and own lack of literary talent. His death as a necessary sacrifice? You're no fan. Skip the upcoming show; you'd only be in the way of people who are there to see amazing music from an amazing band. You're the type of self proclaimed fan I despise and pity, for although you may make a show here and there, you are unable to appreciate the sheer wisdom and significance of the band's music.
It was not necessary nor expected for the band to dissolve after the loss of LeRoi. Big Whiskey, recorded largely without LeRoi, far surpassed earlier albums, exemplifying the band's resilience in their loss, and their sheer talent. Many agreed, as it received several notable Grammy nominations.
I hope your writing improves in tandem with your attitude, but I truly doubt either. And if you are seeking a career as a professional journalist, you have many much needed reality checks in store. Good luck you talentless, simpering little asshole. You'll need it.
