Motion Device says goodbye to Alex

Official statement from Motion Device:

First and foremost we wish our long-time guitarist Alex DeFrancesco the best of luck – he will be missed. Alex’s decision to leave the band was a very tough one, we are sure of that. Musicians almost always come to a crossroad when it comes to balancing music with another career. That time came for Alex and he made his decision.

Motion Device will not be replacing Alex. As far as Andrea, David, Sara and management are concerned there is only one man that fits the bill when it comes to playing guitar for the band and that man is Josh. He has taken the bull by the horns so to speak, writing tons of new material along with his band mates, and can’t wait to unleash the band’s new music onto the masses.

In the words of Queen’s late, great, Freddie Mercury… ‘the show must go on’… and what a show it will be.

LONG LIVE ROCK & ROLL

  1. I wish Alex good luck his future endeavors. i hope he continues to use his musical talents on future projects. Sitting here reading some of the other comments i can’t believe anybody would question your ability to continue to perform live with one less band member although they may mean well in some way. I however have no doubt your live performance is as good as it ever was and will continue to grow. I recall another Canadian rock band that goes by the name “Rush” (not that i have to mention the name for you to know who i’m talking about) with only three members that is one of the greatest live bands you will ever see.you guys are doing just fine as far as i’m concerned and i’m sure as far as all your fans are concerned. Keep doing what your doing and don’t look back. Great sound, great attitude !! Looking forward to seeing you guys on world tour as i’m sure there will be many to come. A fan forever…. Tony 😉

  2. Hello
    Just discovered your group yesterday on line . The first video was of a young girl 11 yrs old at vocals and a fantastic group of young musicians . Each video that I watched the group got older and older and even more refined .I am a long time Kiss , Black Sabbath , Van Halen and Zepplin fan and think that you are the new band to follow . Please stay on track. Don’t get caught up in the. B S that sometimes comes with fame .

  3. He will be missed. You guys are great together. Two lead guitarists does rock like so many other great bands. I think you sound great with just the base 4, but he did add precision and talent as does Josh. It just seemed the two together sounded like a powerhouse! But, he made his decision for whatever reason that is not our business. We just want to see you guys become the top band in the world in the future. We don’t want much, lol! 🙂 Perhaps time will change things and he might want back in and I believe in keeping options open as people make bad choices thinking they are good ones at the time they made them. I personally would not have chosen to leave, but I’m not him as he had to choose his own destiny and his path. We just wish all of you the best of success in the future. Rock ON! You are a powerhouse of music and sound that is on the level of Mozart with talent at your age. Please be careful with the gift and don’t squander it the way I have thanks to bad decisions thinking they were good ones at the time. You are going to be one of the biggest bands in the world. Hang on….The roller coaster is different for everyone. And remember, if it isn’t fun, your heart’s desire, don’t do it. Life is rare as are you and your talents.
