When we heard about the news on Jett Pangan’s facebook page, we needed to see more proof. And these photos (by Alco Guerrero) just gave us goosebumps!
“When The Dawn started out, I was the kid who held idealistic fantasies of what a band should be. One of those thoughts was that we were gonna be like U2 or Aerosmith where band members will barely or never change, that – come hell or high water – the same guys will eventually ride into the sunset.
30 years later, we know better. Reality doesn’t always support our dreams and desires. This band has seen more than its fair share of members walking in and out of the door, and for varying reasons. Except for the tragic passing of our founder Teddy Diaz, I’ve come to understand that losing a band mate isn’t necessarily a bad thing because the challenge of loss and replacement in this little kingdom of ours only helped build strength and character.
And a whole lot of great music.
We thank Buddy Zabala for clocking in a mighty 10 years as our bassist. It was one heck of a ride, with all the ups and downs and rock ‘n roll I could imagine. He’s a creative force in the industry and we’re happy to have had our share of his gift.
Meanwhile, the rock goes on. You know there’s something divine in the works when everyone says “YES” again.
Allow me to present The Return Of The Comeback (and then some)…
