BoDeans Split

2 Comments 19 August 2011

Sam Llanas has officially left BoDeans.

As stated by BoDeans management, Llanas will not do any more performances with the group.   The reconfigured band will honor all tour and promotional commitments.

According to JSOnline, Llanas unofficially left the group last week when he texted BoDeans co-founder Kurt Neumann with the news that he would not arrive to participate in a BoDeans show in Colorado.

“I think Sam and I worked together as long as we could,” Neumann said. “It was a relationship you try to hash it out as long as you can, and then you can’t. I think it was time. . . . I wished him good luck, and I hope he can move forward.”

BoDeans  released their major-label debut album, Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams in 1986 and have since recorded more than 10 albums.

Here is a performance from BoDeans in Studio 92 just last year.

    I’ve always appreciated WTTS support of the BoDeans music over many years! Kurt Neumann is going to press forward with the band with a new album in the works for 2012. I look forward to more “Good Things” from the BoDeans. I wish the new direction of the band and Sam Llanas the very best. Hopefully, the original line-up will reunite in due time like we see so many times in the music industry when a split takes place! Cheers to WTTS!
