Are you kidding me?
First, Jeff Loomis and Van Williams leave Nevermore yesterday. Now Roy Khan is leaving Kamelot. This is really sad news. Kamelot is a talented band, and their playing and songwriting is great. However, Roy's voice is really what pushed them over the top for me.
While I have been disappointed by their past two releases, Roy's vocals have never been the reason for that. I suppose the writing was on the wall when it was announced that he wouldn't be doing vocals on the tour for them. But it is sad to hear he is leaving.
I hope they can find an equally capable vocalist. Their style really has relied on the strength of his vocals.
