I would share that guess.  It's just a guess, because I haven't heard 
any member of the band describe their philosophical differences that 
way, but it's consistent with hints in things I have heard them say.  
And with the fact that Servotron, in which Star Crunch is not 
involved, is a nutty concept band.

I don't think that's correct.  He told me he was the MoA? member most 
sick of touring.

The way I understand it, the other three are involved in other bands 
because they LIKE touring.  Star Crunch isn't because he doesn't.

Anyone else on lead guitar will sound different, that's for sure.  
And the songwriting will change.  I'm optimistic that MoA? will 
still be great, in a different way.  And that Crunch (if he chooses 
to keep using that name) will do something new that's cool.
