Jago Quits Brmc For A Second Time

BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB have split with drummer NICK JAGO for a second time.
Despite the fact that Jago's ill-timed departure comes as the group plans to launch a European tour, the drummer's bandmates insist there are no hard feelings - and they will welcome him back at any point.
In a statement on the group's MySpace.com website, founders Robert Levon Been and Peter Hayes admit they "look forward to playing" with Jago "in the future".
The post continues, "We just feel Nick needs time to sort out exactly what he wants right now.
"His heart and all his energy and attention is on his own solo project and he needs to see that through. We welcome his singing and songwriting in BRMC, but his focus, at least at the present time, is on doing his own thing and we wish him the best."
In a recent MySpace post, Jago admitted, "Maybe playing drums for BRMC all the time is not my calling and there is something else I'm supposed to do. We will see."
Jago previously quit the group in 2004 but he returned the following year.
He will be replaced on drums by Dead Combo star Leah Shapiro.
