EVANESCENCE Guitarist To Meet With Label

EVANESCENCE lead guitarist Ben Moody will meet with executives at Wind-Up Records today (Nov. 5) in Los Angeles to discuss his future with the band.

As previously reported, Moody abruptly left the Arkansas-based group last month in Berlin in the midst of a world tour. A Wind-Up spokesperson would only confirm, "Ben is not on the current dates." Second guitarist John LeCompt has been subbing for Moody ever since.

There is no word on when — or if — Moody will rejoin the group, the spokesperson said. Moody was spotted by staff at Juanita's, a Little Rock bar, Monday night.

EVANESCENCE's CD "Fallen" featuring the No. 1 song "Bring Me to Life" from the movie "Daredevil" has sold more than six million copies worldwide since its March debut, according to Wind-up Records.
