Evanescence Bassist Leaves, Creating More Turmoil in the Low End Community

Bassists are dropping like flies. Today Evanescence announced that bass player William Boyd will be leaving the group. "He just can't go through with another huge tour right now," singer Amy Lee said in a statement that has a 50/50 chance of being complete bullshit. "He wants to stay a little closer to his family instead." He joins the company of Brent Wilson of Panic! At The Disco and Andy Nicholson of the Arctic Monkeys, two other bassists who recently bolted or were fired from their respective bands. These are human beings, doggone-it! You can't just replace them like widgets!
