he's the brother of the singer, and former drummer (he left the band a while ago i believe). the bassist was kicked out for basically being a dick. they could never get along with him, and eventually he was shown the door. how ridiculous is that? You can't maintain your role in a cashcow band that your family is in, b/c you're just being an asshole all the time? what a clown.
