Staind announced that the long time drummer Jon Wysocki is no longer with the band. He has been replaced by Evanescence and Black Label Society sticks man Will Hunt temporarily. Details on the split and my favorite Staind video after the jump.

"We wish him the best, and thank him for all the years he dedicated to Staind.”

The statement above is what the band had to say about the parting of the drummer. No specific reason of his leaving has been given. I wonder if he is done with drumming for good or if he will join forces with another band. I'm sure the band won't change too much with a new drummer. Staind is to release an album sometime later this year, which despite the band drama, I expect this album to be great! It is said to be the heaviest album they will have put out - Ever.   So, best of luck Jon Wysocki; you will be missed.

This video is an oldie but goodie and is definiteley one of my favorites. What is yours?
