Who care about Evanesence but I'll post this one anyway... Evanesence guitarist John LeCompt said Friday (May 4) he's been fired from the band, and he also said drummer Rocky Gray has quit.

"I'm done, and I'm pretty upset about it. (Singer) Amy Lee called and fired me today. There's absolutely no loyalty in this band."

Evanesence, touring in support of its second major release "The Open Door", is on a short break after returning from South Africa. The group has two dates scheduled later this month before plans to tour Europe, beginning in Paris on May 25.

LeCompt said he and Gray plan to pour all their energy into a new band, Machina, managed by Chris Long (Crossfade). Gray wasn't available for comment.
