First... Matt, thank you for the last year+ for the great music, your influence, and the great times.

And is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is more excited about a new member of the band than being sad for Matt leaving?

I pray that Stoops becomes a long term effort. If not, how many broken bones can this band take?

i don\'t think he was with the band long enough for everyone to get super attached and be that sad.

i\'ll definitely miss matt, but if it\'s not the best fit for him, i\'m glad he decided to do the right thing instead of pretending.  be the best you can be and do what\'s right for yourself.  thank you for all you\'ve given us, i\'ve really enjoyed the sound you brought.   i\'ll be in jocelyn\'s camp for this one.

the thing that pisses me off the most is now the only person i can talk yoga with is paul ryan.   pffft. :)

how does chris get along with Tim, Adrian, and the crew? seriously. because from the start i thought matt was a different type, chris i cant say i have a read on, or anything really to base shit off of. ive seen him play once with the band, dont know how their personalities mesh off stage. i mean it\'s obvious he fits perfectly on stage/musically, but i just want to know if i should be on the lookout for another band change in the next 12 months.

it cant be easy joining a band where two guys have been spooning live for a decade+, are best friends when the show is over, have been for a long time. i dont know if this comment and these questions have no tact at this moment and in this thread, so sorry if it comes across that way.

wow...  this is tough to hear, i really like matt\'s contributions to the band, but i\'m not entirely surprised by the news.  if it\'s any consolation to anyone who\'s bummed, matt\'s a pretty intuitive cat, and although i don\'t know him REAL well, i\'d say this was a well thought out decision and i trust him.  guy\'s got a different purpose and it\'s very cool that he can see that now as opposed to 7 or 8 years down the road.  i do hope he continues to play music in general.  bah, whatever, i\'ll email him, this is silly, feels like a eulogy.

HUGE gratitude for what matt has brought to the band.  He\'s definitely left an imprint, and has served a major purpose this year.

but come on, the world needs him.  ;)

Matt will be missed, but it sounds to me like it was his choice to leave the band, not the other way around.  That being said, I\'m psyched to see where Stoops can bring this band - this will, by far, be the BEST incarnation of tB!

... :chin: now, if only they could change their name back to "Psychedelic" Breakfast... ;)

Good luck Matt!!!  I\'ve always enjoyed your playing and interesting talks.

All the best, Chris and Caitlin

From a very good source:  I hear the band is excited about Stoops on many levels.  Musicially and the fact that it may open the band to a new audience.  My belief: Everything happens for a reason...  While one door closes let\'s all hope that another bigger and better one opens for TB.

Matt\'s playing style has grown on me over the year, and with his departure, the band may lose a few more than decent tunes. But I too felt it was sometimes a little too jazzy - not that I am against jazz, but at times it felt like the music was pulling  away from what drew me to the band in the first place. So good luck to him in whatever he does - he\'s a fine musician, who will hopefuly find the right chemistry with another bunch of like-minded talented musicians.

As for Stoops, well, I have always enjoyed Raq and also his sit-ins with Tim et al over the years, so look forward to what he may bring on a possibly permanent basis.

However, what no-one else seems to have picked up on is the sentence: "Tim Palmieri will take double duty responsibilities on both guitar and keyboards through October 13th, with many special guest appearances! " Some of the trio shows contain some of the best music I have ever heard, so we are in for a treat again.

In addition, "special guest appearances!"?? Does ths mean sequoia is a possible for a few shows? He seems to have been around a lot lately eg the Beatles shows. Much as I respect Todd, might this be the time for Jordan to come back? I for one have missed that organ sound and his vocals for too long. Permanent would be good for me, but if not, even a few shows to bring back some of the classic pb material would be nice.
