Guitarist Jay Jay French, writing on his blog at Inc.com, said, “We will honor AJ during our shows this year. A professional drummer who is a friend will be filling in shortly. This will allow us to fulfill our touring obligations and, most important, give us some space to make some very hard decisions about our future. We are surely not the same kids who had a dream 40 years ago to become ‘rock stars’. We carry the scars to prove it. We are adults who run a business, and businesses must go on, even through a curtain of tears.”
