Title: What would you think if Andy LaRocque left the band?
Post by: vitalsign0 on April 27, 2016, 04:59:18 pm
I was thinking of this the other day, I consider Andy as essential to the band as King himself. I don't think I would be as interested in live shows or another album if Andy wasn't involved.

I'd be upset, but wouldn't give up on King or his band.

I do think Andy is a key piece of the King Diamond machine, but if Mike Wead stays, I'll still be more than happy, as Mike could take on more songwriting responsibilities, and that might actually have a positive side. :WiNkA:

I would be terribly upset as I feel Andy is an Integral part of the sound he works so very well with everyone his guitar techniques tones and writing are just incredibly wonderful from the beginning until the present.   I've felt for a long time should for some Andy not be part of the band it would be hard for someone to come in and replace him...there are plenty of great guitarists but I would go to say Andy has among many greats created his own sound and that would be a shame to lose..


Stay heavy

I would think Andy had been hit with Alzheimer's...

A horrifying concept.

Losing Hal was bad enough, IMHO.

Horrible scenario.

I wouldn't be surprised if King Diamond ends the band if Andy leaves, to be honest.
King and Andy have always been the backbone in King Diamond, they are partners in crime since 1985. I can't imagine this band without Andy.
Hopefully he will stick with King Diamond until the end.
