I'm sort of interested, but the reasons SA split kind of bothers me a bit. I think I posted it at the time, but here it is again...
Hi, this will be the final Avenue newsletter. Why the final? Why, one thing is: I have left the band and another is:
Seventh Avenue is not any longer in the way you know it. This is heavy news, I know. But let me explain. We haven’t
parted badly. I just came clear with the knowing that I don’t have the same goals with the music as Herbie, Flo and Markus have.
We discussed a lot about our music and about Seventh Avenue. It came out, that the name “Seventh Avenue” is
associated with white metal. And this is not wrong at all. But it is prejudicial to have commercial success, to be booked
for „regular“ festivals and shows. Many people, and more important: many reviewers are not impartial if they know
about our Christian background. That’s why there will be a new band which enters the music scene with a “clean
image”. Of course, this doesn’t changes our attitude to the belief.
The last sixteen years have been a good and an important period for me. And I regret almost nothing.
Herbie, Flo and Markus will find a new drummer and keep on rocking under a new name.
I thank you all for your loyalty to Seventh Avenue.
