    I don’t think he left permanantly but i do hope he
    Gets well soon

  3. Faith says:

    I was very distraught when I heard this news. His voice and music has always been the best escape from anything. I hope he gets back to good health and returns with Three Days Grace.

  4. Ashlee says:

    There is no Three Days Grace without Adam! He makes the band what it is. Get well soon, Adam! Can’t wait to hear you singing again.

    Listening to the clips they released with Matt, I honestly think that without Adam, TDG is done.

  6. Chloe says:

    Adam is TDG. I have tickets to the show and I am not excited anymore. The version of Riot, with Matt on vocals, is terrible. It is awesome that Matt wants to fill in and help the band out….but it will not be the same. Today is a sad day.

    I think it’s crazy that they would replace Adam wih someone who doesn’t even have half his talent. Adam is the worlds greatest singer EVER and, unless Adam returns, three days grace will never ever be the same… I do realize that Adam left the band because of a health issue, and I’m not mad at him whatsoever. I respect his decision, and if it’s what he wants to do, and I makes him happy, I guess I’m happy too… An thank you Matt for stepping up on pretty short notice… Anyway, three days grace will nicer be the same without Adam, and I hope he gets well soon…

  8. Bobby says:

    I meant will never be he same without adam
