Craig Owens is a narcissist. That's not slander, that's a fact. When we met up with him in Rhode Island in 2010, he sat like king of the world as his band scurried about prepping for their show. It sat wrong with me then, and now it seem that no matter what the public statements may be- I wasn't the only one to have issue with him.
Nick Martin, Aaron Stern and Matt Good have left Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows. Yes, the band has quit the band, This saddens me in a few ways. The musicianship was outstanding. Aaron Stern was and is one of the most gracious 'rockers' I have ever met and the future was bright. If you recall Owens bailed out of shows to act, and on whim basically screwing the band at every turn. They didn't stand a chance. My hope is that these gentlemen find a new vocalist and carry on. My other hope is that someone gives Craig a reality check, he's already a parody.
A statement was released by Craig with the following:
"I wish Nick, Aaron & Matt the best of luck in moving forward, in whatever it is that they decide to do. They are all very talented individuals and I have no doubt that they will succeed no matter what it is they choose to do next. They stood next to me during one of the most difficult times in my life and I will never be able to thank them enough for what it is that they did for me. I wish them the best of luck and I hope, most of all, that they continue to make music. They’re extremely talented and professional musicians and music fans should be treated to their talents for many years to come.
As for the future of DRUGS… I obviously have a few things to figure out as this was a completely unexpected turn of events. I will let you, the fans, know what the future holds for Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows soon.
Most of all, I will never be able to thank each and everyone of YOU! For standing behind me when I get knocked down, for sticking with me during one of the hardest moments in my life, for always being there by my side while I figure out my personal problems, and most importantly for always being there for me, no matter what the circumstance. I owe all of you more then I’ll ever be able to give back in the form of music, or a blog… but I can promise you one thing, and that is… I WILL NEVER STOP being there for you, as you have always been there for me, that I can promise you.."
Delusions of grandeur? Yeah. There is only so much bullshit teenaged girls will tolerate, and the prima donna act gotta go. But wait they cant even go on with out Craig Owens. Dig this Tweet from Matt Good:
@mattg00d I think that you nick, aaron and tai should continue with drugs with you as lead singer. #justsayin
@RyanTate004 we can't. We had to sign a contract to join the band saying we couldn't be a band without Craig
Craig Owens knew from the start he was nothing without a great band Its a shame the guys signed a pact with this megalomaniac.
