Yeah, it's true. Dexter and Greg are going into the Orphans with the guy from NOFX for a side project and Noodles is now living in Taiwan with his 7 year old slave chung lee pow, Gary Glitter style.



Or not.

Neocon's post is hilarious (sorry I forgot to quote ;P)

If Atom really leaves it's gonna be fucked up, they'll have to choose another drummer to do the live shows. But well, I think The Offspring core is really Dexter and Noodles, so as long as both stay, I still consider them as The Offspring.

What...WHAT? matty didn't take it seriously? I'm too tired, right? It's a case of "omg lolz"!

But well, I think The Offspring core is really Dexter and Noodles, so as long as both stay, I still consider them as The Offspring.What about Greg? Dexter and Greg formed the band in 1984. Noodles wasn't there at the very beginning.

Yes, yes you're so right!!! But I can see Greg easily replaced, but not Dexter or Noodles. that's what I meant when I used the term "core", I wasn't referring to The Offspring origins.

Well i think if greg was fired or left etc and think he could be replaced but i dont think dexter whould have coz they started the band and they have been friends for years

i think if greg k were to leave they would be able to replace him, things wouldnt be the same but you cant expect them to be as weve seen with ron leaving!

IF Greg left he could be replaced but it wouldn't be the same without him...

His kickass stance and awesome bass skills...

Yes Noodles and Dexter are the frontmen but Greg and Dexter started the band...and Greg is just as important as the others...

:D

Personally, I think Greg is as important as Dexter or Noodles. It's not because he never talks during interviews or he looks ready to kill that he's not important. Furthermore, the way Greg "dances" during shows is fun. I wouldn't want anyone to take his place, because he wouldn't be able to dance like him. Imagine if he'd leave the band, the only original members left would be Dexter and Noodles*.



* Don't tell me something like : "WTF NOODLES wasNT there at teh begining of teh bandz!!!1". I know that. What I mean is that Noodles have been in the band for so long, that it's almost as if he is an original member. I don't know if the original guitarist left Manic Subsidal before they changed their name to The Offspring.

Ye but atom has become such a HUGE part of the offspring, without him it will be so weird and depressing

i think gregs bass lines have a lot to do with the song structures. i like greg a lot. Out of all of them originally i liked ron the least even though i did like his drumming atom seemed cool but it was obvious he wasnt going to be around much longer. but yeah, the whole drummer thing, its not too important right now i think

The Offspring are splitting up because their fans disappoint them. Also, they want to spend more time on the internet, posting on message boards.

Greg can't and won't ever be replaced. He is a bass god. Dexter and Greg started the band... Before they even knew how to play instruments. Then they got their friend to do drums or something, I forget. Noodles is an original member of The Offspring, he WAS there at the very beginning, but he was NOT a founder of Manic Subsidal. He was a member of Manic when the name was changed though. They all founded Offspring, it wasn't just Greg and Dexter, the first members of Manic Subsidal. How many more times must I say this? I hope I won't have to again. Offspring is NOT splitting up, they enjoy it too much and they have a contract, they have to put out 2 more records before they can stop.

Quit being so fanboyish. There are dozens of other bassists that you can say are better than both.

Idiot. Flea is obviously much more skilled than Greg K. Not that Greg is bad, but he isn't even close to being a legend.

No, he is not an idiot...As much as I like Brett he does go on a lot about his favourite bands eg A7X, Foo Fighters and Flea in this case...

He compares everyone to them, but anyways Brett you know I love you :p

I didn't say Greg was better. I was just telling Brett that he didn't have to mention Flea specifically.

saying flea is a bass legend isn't being a fan boy. Flea is a bass legend. There is no denying that.

Well, of course he doesn't. But Billy is just a shredder! Flea's playing goes with the music perfectly.

Your wish is my command.

By the way, Flea was taught everything he knows by the REAL BASS MASTER---Mike Watt.
