En el myspace de Roy Khan se ha oficializado lo que todos temíamos, la salida de Roy Khan de la banda Kamelot. Había algo de esperanza mientras no hubiera nada oficial, pero hoy se ha hecho oficial y Roy Khan deja Kamelot para siempre. Tristeza, lágrimas, sentimientos encontrados, todo esto es quizá lo que siento al leer el comunicado de Roy despidiéndose de los fans y de la banda.
A continuación podrán leer el comunicado donde nos comenta de que él ya le había comunicado a los demás integrantes su decisión de dejar la banda desde el año pasado. Pero ellos le dieron tiempo para pensarlo mejor, y luego de varios meses, la decisión se mantiene. Ahora el futuro es incierto, no se sabe si volverá a cantar alguna vez, ni idea de quien lo puede reemplazar, esta es quizá la peor noticia del año, la música ha perdido a uno de sus mejores vocalistas.
Dear fans & friends,
There have been a lot of speculations around why I am not touring with Kamelot and I want to make a statement although it may not prevent further guessing as to what’s actually going on. It is a fact however that I told the guys in the band already last fall (well after my burnout) that I was leaving the band. Naturally enough they were shocked (as was the label and everyone else working with Kamelot). In addition to risk of dropping ticket sales they wanted to give me time to think things over, and so I did. My decision still stands; It is finished.
I am currently spending time with my family in Norway taking it easy and wondering profoundly what the future is going to bring. Communication with the outer world has been so and so, but I have had several talks with Thomas along the way although I am still called in sick. I am terribly sorry that my decision is affecting so many others and I want you to know I wish the band & associates all the best for the future and that I enjoyed every second in the spotlight. How could I not…they were nourished by the best fans in the world! I am eternally thankful for everything you and Kamelot have given me and equally sorry that it has to end here. The good news is; God was there after all…
Love you to death!!!
All the best & so long,
