To make it clear, me exiting had zero percent to do with drugs. It was over some way more petty shit; it’s sad…

I just want to make it clear that I did not quit. I love being in a band. I got kicked out for personal bullshit, which really is bullshit. I’m gonna be the bigger man and not air out business like that. I got a check, I secured my royalties. I’m out.”
