In news that will surprise the people who knew this band was still together, Pete Wentz announced on his blog yesterday that he was no longer a member of Fall Out Boy.
(I) cant predict that id ever play in fall out boy again. not due to personal relationships as much as a band we grew apart ... there is the possibility that fob will play again with out me or i will be a part of it when everyone is on the same page. it is no ones fault and there is no animosity about the decision.
He's downplaying it but it won't be easy for the band to replace him. They'll have to go down to the guitar store and wait until it opens. Then when someone buys a bass, they'll have to ask if he wants to be in a band.
