Ed Roland announced earlier today on 99x that Ross Childress was no longer with Collective Soul. [more...]

Ed said Ross was endangering CS with his decisions. Their manager, Farsheed said that CS didn't put 10 years into their career to have someone put an end to it. Joel from The Steeps is currently filling in for Ross since the Goodwill games in Australia, and looks like his appointment will be permanent.

Collective Soul's greatest hits 7even Year Itch was released on Tuesday.

Omigod! What will Collective Soul be like without Ross Childress? I mean, he was like the main reason I listened to Collective Soul. Who will play the G chords now? I'm going to go burn my albums. Ed Roland is a fucking asshole. (We kid because we love — really.)

Collective Soul? They're still around?

Good to see that things are back to pseduo-normal around here :)

almostcool: Collective Soul is the Collective Suck of 90s formula rock.

Say it ain't so! This is horrible.

The last time I cried this much was when Britney Spears left the Mickey Mouse Club...or maybe when that one guy left Menudo.

I don't know if my world will ever be the same again.

You know, had MeFi been around in 1997, I still would've thought twice about posting when a founding member left my favourite band. Is there anything about this "story" worth discussing by the general public, or am I standing alone in thinking that this lament is better left to a Collective Soul fansite forum?

Yeah, Dreama, I'm with you. This post is so totally not appropriate....

Now, a post about DuranDuran, now that'd be be appropriate! *grin*

Sorry, I'll do better next time. We have discussed other bands with similar problems before, so I figured this one would fit here, I was wrong.

Shhhh, Cecily, do not invoke the name. Especially not in the presence of mentions of Collective Soul.
