LaBrie should quit, instead of MP. LOL
Seriously, now, I don't think it has anything to do with Avenged Sevenfold. He just want to play different stuff, he wants to rest a little. He devoted all his life to DT and it's normal to human beings to want changes sometimes. Everyone knows that. So, I won't blame the guy. If he's happy about his decision, fans should just support him as a person and not be selfish about it. True, it ....ing sucks, just like when Christian Alvestam left Scar Symmetry, or when Bruce left Maiden, but they are all human beings and have their own aspirations.
