Why Break Up?

Luna's Answer

comment
We've received a lot of kind e-mails, people asking why the band will be going into retirement next year. Of course, with a decision like this, the reasons are multifold. Here are 10 explanations I have been giving to journalists:
  1. Rock and roll is killing my life.
  2. The universe is expanding.
  3. There are too many bands out there, traveling around, singing their songs, etc.
  4. Too much time spent in 15-passenger vans. According to 20/20, these things flip over.
  5. Too many hands to shake; that means germs.
  6. Too many dinners at Wendy's.
  7. People are dying in Iraq.
  8. This is what bands do (with a few exceptions, like R.E.M. and Metallica, and the Rolling Stones). Those bands, however, are multi-billion dollar corporations. You don't break that up unless the government forces you to.
  9. Hotel Electravision.
  10. Time to Quit.
