    Let's get these people moving faster!

    Wonder if he'd still collaborate on Bad Books? Obviously that requires less time commitment than MO does.

    Bringin the ruckus

    The first time I saw Manchester when they opened for Brand New in 2007 my first thought was "ok this band is amazing and I need to buy their cd" and the second was "who is that maniac losing his mind at the keyboard?". Always loved his energy during shows, pretty bummed about this.

    Met him at a show once, but I couldn't remember his first name, so I shook his hand and said "good job tonight Mr Freeman," he laughed really hard and told me not to call him Mister, so I asked if Captain was okay. He agreed and we left. I wish the shirt I bought from him still fit me.

    I have no idea what he's contributed artistically, but live, this guy was a brilliant part of the best live show I've seen. ManOrch is perfect with Chris. He'll definitely be missed.

    I think Andy is technically the only original now. I don't think Robert played on Nobody Sings...

    So crazy and unexpected. His live performance was incredible, and he was a really nice guy too

    I'm assuming he'll either be on or the music he wrote will appear on their new record based on their post on their Facebook from back in March

    Awww, this is a bummer. He was maybe my favorite part of MO. Best of luck to him in the future!
