[ mood | shocked ]

i must say im surprised about the lack of posts about rob's leaving! i've been [and am still] in fiji, so haven't had a chance to catch up on all the goss, but still...
rob was always my favourite *sigh*

Last night, Rob Brewer was fired from Unwritten Law. Rob called me personally to inform me. All I can say is that I am in complete shock. When Wade Youman was fired last year, it had to happen, it needed to be done. To this day, I still find Wade to be the most artistic & creative person I've ever met, and wish him the best of luck. But... Their were just to many issues revolving around him. This time though, its different. Rob didn't have to be let go. He shouldn't have been fired!

The following is a bulletin sent out from an unknown source through UL's MySpace site. The accuracy of the incident hereby stated below is not known to be completely correct, and I take no responsibility in reasoning done by others. As stated before, I choose to say out of this subject. I am just the giver of information. When I get more sides to the story, I will post them here. One persons opinion doesn't constitute accuracy.

"Guitar player Rob Brewer was fired by his bandmates yesterday. Singer Scott Russo could not get over the fight they had onstage in Anaheim. During the fight, Russo threw a beer on Brewer and swung a microphone stand at him, so Brewer hit Russo in the mouth. Russo's new fake teeth were knocked out and he can't get over it. He refuses to go on with the band if Brewer is a part of it. He says he is scared of Brewer and worried about his safety. The band has decided to let Russo make the decision for all of them and will continue doing shows with Russo replacing Rob as the guitar player. After the 14 years Brewer has spent with the band, it has come to this. It is a sad day - Brewer was the only original UL member left."

The remaining four members of Unwritten Law have posted their side to this most horrific tragedy. Find it below:

First and foremost, Unwritten Law does not like to air our dirty laundry out in the public. However, we, Scott, Steve, Tony, and PK feel like we're forced into a corner right now.

That being said, here is Unwritten Law's side of the story.

The fact of the matter is that this lineup, since Blue Room, aside from PK joining in 1997 and Tony joining in 2004, has not changed except for Wade. We put in 14 years of our lives into this band, 8 months of our hearts into this record, and all of our hearts into every show every single night.

The fight started that night because Rob did not know his parts, and if you're a member of the band, you need to know your parts to the songs. We rehearsed Fight Song, and we were ready to play, and that night, he was not ready to play Fight Song.

We did not arrive at the decision to release Rob from the band based on this one incident. Rob has been in the band for 14 years, and it was a very hard decision for all of us. It was not a decision that we made, but rather a decision that Rob made by attacking a member of his own band. We're very sad to see him leave due to any trauma. This is not a unique incident with Rob, but rather a recurring event over 14 years with a variety of other people. Attacking someone in your own band is uncalled for, extremely unprofessional, and unacceptable. We cannot excuse hitting a band member in the face and then going after him with a vodka bottle and severing your own finger in the process which renders you unable to play. Someone could have been seriously injured or worse. That's unacceptable. We cannot condone nor tolerate this kind of violence-we never have and we never will.

Furthermore, this incident was not an isolated event between Scott and Rob. Much more happened that night off stage. Rob insulted the entire band, our families, and assaulted an innocent fan backstage who was waiting to meet us. This kind of violence has happened for 14 years, and we want to be a band that loves each other. We've reached a point where we have no choice but to respond. Rob put us, our fans, and our careers in jeopardy by reaching a point of such violence that we could not reverse the damage. This was truly a decision that none of us wanted to make. We can no longer suffer due to one person's violent temper. We still love Rob and care for him as a brother. Our sincerest apologies go out to anyone involved in this matter-friends, family, and fans.

Rob is irreplaceable, and therefore we will not be accepting any applications for a new guitar player. We will, however, continue to play our hearts out every single night for our fans.

Sincerely,
Scott Russo, Steve Morris, Pat Kim, and Tony Palermo

All lyrics from Unwritten Law's "Here's the Mourning" album except number 2, which is from "Elva"

This concludes my being a fucking nerd for one day.,

so unwritten law is playing an in-store at tower records in anaheim, CA next saturday (feb. 12) i think it starts at 2:00 but you can start lining up at 12:00 (no earlier!) i think it's going to be an acoustic show.
and they will be doing a signing.
to get a wristband, which guarantees you will get in, come buy the new album a.s.a.p. there's only about 250 wristbands and they're going to go fast!

hope to see some of you kids there ;)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SO’CAL PIONEERS UNWRITTEN LAW TO CANCEL HEADLINE TOUR DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY

NEW YORK, NY—December 08, 2004—Unwritten Law regretfully announce the cancellation of their current U.S. headline tour effective immediately.   The band are directly returning to the Los Angeles area as long-time bassist, Pat Kim’s father was admitted to Kaiser Hospital earlier this week due to an undisclosed, serious ailment.   

Unwritten Law were currently on the road in support of their forthcoming Lava Records disc Here’s To The Mourning.  The band made the difficult decision this evening to cancel the tour as Pat Kim was notified of his father’s rapidly declining health.  

“We’re extremely saddened to have to cancel the tour and let down our fans,” stated Scott Russo, front man for the veteran San Diego five-piece. “Due to the unforeseeable circumstances and our concern for Pat and his family, we made the right decision to turn the bus around. 

Unwritten Law is planning to reschedule the cancelled dates in early 2005.  For more information, go to www.unwrittenlaw.com or contact the Lava Records press department.

Autographed CD Booklet [04 Aug 2004|04:01pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Hmm. Well this community seems to be dead. But I am going to post this anyway...


I have Unwritten Law's cd Elva, and the booklet is autographed by Scott, Steve, and PK.

The booklet/cd was given to me when it first came out by a friend. Don't stab me or anything, but I only like maybe 2 songs on the CD. So it's just been sitting in my CD rack.

If anyone is interested in buying it, and yes the CD comes with the booklet...lol unless you just want the booklet?
If anyone just leave a comment here and let me know. You can buy it straight from me, but if you feel more comfortable I will put it on Ebay where I have excellent feedback. Also if I don't hear from anyone I will be putting it on Ebay.


Thanks for reading this....
