Harvey Quits Cave's Band

NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS star MICK HARVEY has announced his departure from the band.
Multi-instrumentalist Harvey, who helped found the group in 1983, is leaving due to undisclosed "personal and professional" reasons - but has promised to work on planned reissue projects expected this year (09).
He says in a statement: "For a variety of personal and professional reasons I have chosen to discontinue my ongoing involvement with Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds.
"After 25 years I feel I am leaving the band as it experiences one of its many peaks; in very healthy condition, and with fantastic prospects for the future.
"I'm confident Nick will continue to be a creative force and that this is the right time to pass on my artistic and managerial role to what has become a tremendous group of people who can support him in his endeavours both musically and organisationally."
