There are very few bands that take the music world by storm the way that Evanescence did back in 2003 when Fallen debuted, culminating with 5 Grammy nominations and 2 wins. But when Ben Moody suddenly left Evanescence mid tour, it was quickly apparent that all was not well in Oz. Not long after John LeCompt was fired and Rocky Gray left the band as well. After a few years of working with high profile artists such as Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson, Ben Moody resurfaced with We Are the Fallen, reuniting with John and Rocky and adding Marty O’Brien and American Idol finalist Carly Smithson. We recently had the opportunity to chat with Guitarist John LeCompt to talk about the split with Evanescence, American Idol and what all that has to do with We are the Fallen and what the future holds for them.
