Would you be upset if Pete split from the band he’s played with for more than a decade, or would you be psyched to see him as a solo act?
Despite Fall Out Boy singer Pete Wentz’s previous declaration that his band was on an “indefinite hiatus”, it looks like that break has become a break up.
“As much as I don’t have a solo project, I also can’t predict that I’d ever play in fall out boy again,” Pete, 30, wrote Feb. 2 on his personal blog, adding, “In this statement I’d like to include there is the possibility that FOB will play again without me or I will be a part of it when everyone is on the same page.”
Pete has hinted in the past that his celebrity status and marriage to Ashlee Simpson, 25, has been a source of constant rifts among his band members because his new celebrity status has overshadowed Fall Out Boy’s success (Re: Yoko Ono).
However, Pete doesn’t think that any one thing is to blame for his band’s demise. “It is no ones fault and there is no animosity about the decision. I felt as fans you deserve to know.” He added that while the band may be done, he’s proud of how far they managed to come. “I am the single biggest fan of FOB and if this is our legacy than so be it. I am proud of it.”
Do you believe that all good things must come to an end?
