AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF EX-MEMBERS: Having last month received perhaps the ultimate honour - an ITV documentary named after them - And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead look to be having a slightly less stellar time of it right now. First, Neil Busch has had to quit due to "severe health problems" - he's been replaced by Danny Wood, sometime bassist for The Rise for the time being at least. Second, to avoid a clash with Eminem, No Doubt and U2's new albums, the release date for Worlds Apart, the new album, has been shunted down to January 2005. Yeah, that makes sense, because people who would want a ...AYWKUBTDOD album would find, stood in front of the record rack, that they'd much rather have a Bono song. Or Gwen Stefani doing that one about people who claim to know her mother.

If you ever go to the trailofdead.org message board you can often find Ellis Keely, Conrad's mum, lurking on there. She's kind of a flakey old hippy. Anyway, while no one will say anything "official", Ellis has allude to what "severe health problems" actually means and it's exactly what you think it means.

I was surprised that pitchfork.com did not go into that as it's pretty obvious if you pry even just a little but in a way I think it's nice that they left Neil alone.

I'm also surprised that they of all bands would succumb to hard drugs. They seem like socerer's apprentices, I mean their street team is called Choir Boys for gosh sakes.

It is a shame though. Neil was the sexiest one out of what I like to think of as a band of studious sexy nerds.

And yes, that label thing is a load of shit. But then this is the label that Fred Durst is vice president of still I believe.
