So long, farewell

To every person who has ever asked, "what does L.A.O. mean?" anybody who has ever been to any show at the Cobalt Cafe, anybody who has ever asked, "how was tour?", every person who has ever put their fingers in the air and tickled the sky at a show - this is for you:

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...

L.A.O. ; December 97 - August 04
