Heaven’s Basement sent out the following message tonight:
It is our sad duty to announce that for personal reasons Rob has decided to
leave the band. This is to take place immediately and so he will no longer be
playing any of the up coming shows. This is a sad day for us as a band as Rob
has been our friend and partner in crime since the beginning. But it is his
desire to now move on to different pastures and as sad as we are, we respect
that and support him in every way. He is and always will be a friend of Heaven’s
Basement. With his help we have managed to secure a temporary replacement to
fulfil the up coming shows, until a permanent replacement can be found. For
those of you planning to come to any of the next gigs we will be playing a
slightly shorter set than usual given the little amount of time we’ve had to
prepare, but we’ll still be making the most of each show! All of us would like
to wish Rob luck for the future, see below for a message from Rob.
Richie, Sid, Jonny, Chris
“I am writing this blog with great regret for I have decided to leave Heaven’s
Basement and move on to pastures new. I have had 10 amazing years of highs and
lows working as a musician. But after much deliberation, battleing with my own
thoughts and feelings, I have come to realize that my heart is just not in it
Myself and the guys remain the best of friends, and I wish them all the success
they deserve. They really are a great bunch of guys, whom I admire and respect.
I have shared many, many good times with them over the years. The memories of
which will stay with me forever.
I just want to thank you all for your fantastic and loyal support. I have come
across many bands, but few have the dedicated followers that Heaven’s Basement
have generated and it’s a pleasure to have met you all!
Please continue to spread the word of The Basement and get behind the boys and
whoever steps into my place. I hope he has a good sense of humour as he’s gonna
need it to get through the cannings!!!
All that remains for me to say really, is a very, very fond farewell to you all,
and maybe I’ll see you all at a gig sometime in the future, but as a fan this
