 Y'all remember him, the lead singer. Did y'all know he died in 2007 from huffing freon!? I just found that out like right now. They have a new single out and I guess replaced the lead singer. You can't regroup a group where the lead singer has died.

That's like Queen trying to make a comeback minus Freddie Mercury.

 That's what I was thinking maybe he couldn't afford any other drug. I hope the new group sounds good.

I read that there was also meth in his system. Not sure how accurate that is but still...freon?

How they have a new group when one of the other members hacked his wife within like the past two months?

Oh yeah, you're real late finding that out.

Not sure. The song is on the Unsung webpage. That's how I heard it. As for the dude's death, I was like 8, 9,10 when they were at their peak so I never knew anything about them except they had some bomb ass songs but eventually sizzled into has beens. I've never been interested in the group, just liked jamming to their songs lol.

I didn't know he died, but I remember one of their songs from my college days.  I think it's weird when the lead singer dies or leaves the band to do a solo act, and they try to regroup the band (ie. Queen, TLC, Journey).  It just doesn't work, even if you can find another singer that has a similar sound to the lead singer or member in that band.

Queen tried to regroup after Freddie mercury died? I thought they did some tributes.
