After 7 years of dedicating my entire life, blood sweat and tears, countless hours of sitting in front of a computer screen, driving in a van, waiting at shows, playing shows, practicing in garages, lockouts, rehearsal studios, high school stages and recording studios and being known to many as only, "Adam from L.A.O." - I have been asked to leave L.A.O.
The question WHY? will never be answered, but only to say that 3 were not on the same page as 1.
All I can say now is thank you to every single person who I came in contact with over the last 7 years with this band - Everybody who came to a show, everybody I shared the stage with, spun our spinners, everybody who did the hand claps or sang along or took pictures, anybody who ever paid attention when I just had to show them the latest website design or t-shirt idea at 4 in the morning. You all made the last 7 years worth it.
Ever since the day Brian and I started L.A.O. - or maybe when it was only known as Mad Cow and the Atomic Mushrooms - I believed in the band and we did whatever it took to make an impression on anybody we came across.... L.A.O. will forever leave an impression on me.
I look forward to seeing what comes next for L.A.O. and for myself. I hope whatever it is I take part in next that I will be able to enjoy it with everyone who has made these last 7 years what they were to me.
Feel free to drop me an email and let me know how things are going...
Adam Scott Paul
