It's been almost 2 years since I, the creator and maintainer of this community, has written in here. What can I say? I don't even write in my own journal anymore.
I felt that I owed it to (the few but faithful) PD fans out there to post the news. It's actually old news, but news worth passing on nonetheless.
After 10 years of rocking together, Painting Daisies has disbanded. I've known since it happened, but was hoping they'd somehow reconsider.
I actually don't know why they disbanded. I assume some kind of rift between bandmates, which is actually quite sad since they were so tight. But I had emailed (or posted on their message board, I don't remember which) because they haddn't posted concert dates in a long whole. I guess they were trying to get everyone together for a farewell concert, but it didn't work out.
I was so sad... I loved watching them live. I loved how they interacted with their audience. I just loved (and still do!) PD.
I really wished that they had been able to put together a final concert. I never did get a copy of the latest CD, Phonography.
Well, I do have my memories. And when those fail me, I have pictures, 2 t-shirts, stickers, posters, a puck and an autographed CD.
In case any former member of PD happens to stumble accross this in the future, remember that you are loved and adored. You were my all time favourite band. Period.
You will be mourned, and missed.
