Evanescence appeared on MuchMusic on Sunday (December 14) where singer Amy Lee was asked why her former best friend and founding member Ben Moody left the group. “I don’t know. I would like to ask him,” Lee said. “He changed his number. But it gets to a point sometimes, in this situation very early on, that your heart isn’t in it, and when your heart isn’t in something, it messes it up for all of you. All of us, including Ben, are happier now. Thank you.” She expanded on the two not speaking yet saying, “I don’t know what to say. ‘Hey, dude, what’s up?’ I don’t know. We’ll talk eventually. I think we ended up at one of the same after-parties at an awards ceremony, but I didn’t see him.” As for the mystery surrounding the whole situation, Lee says, “You have to be there to understand. It’s one of those things where we were in a bad situation, kind of like perpetually, and it was kind of an ongoing negative vibe and something had to give, and it did.”
