Evanescence at It Again
Evanescence made a statement through Billboard and Reuters regarding the controversy stirred up a few weeks ago over their status as Christians.
Ben Moody, the lead guitarist and songwriter emphasizes that they have only said that they aren't a Christian band, not that they aren't Christians. This comes after they declared that "We have no spiritual affiliation with this music."
Christian heads are spinning all over the 'net over this one. It's kinda interesting to watch.
I wonder if Evanescence's band members' heads aren't spinning with the whole going Platinum thing. Moody seems to be defending their status as Christians, but does not want to be classified as a Christian band for reasons as inscrutable as their polysyllabic name selection.
I hope that whatever their band's status is, that faith in Christ will be at the root of all they do - whether writing songs or just living life.
