    Default Greg Hetson is apparently not in Bad Religion anymore

    I just found out that Greg Hetson didn't play with Bad Religion at the Groezrock festival, and there are rumors that he's leaving the band. I hope that's not true. Bad Religion have been one of my favorite bands for years and I'm glad I got the opportunity to see them (I saw them on the New Maps of Hell and Dissent of Man tours - I was actually going to go see them again in April of this year, but missed it). I'd be both sad and freaked out if Hetson is really out of the band.

    That would be unfortunate if Greg Hetson left the band, but the quote has high praise for BR as a 4-piece, with Brian Baker as sole guitarist. It sounds like something I'd want to see live. Also, maybe if Hetson does leave, that means Brett Gurewitz would probably have to start playing live shows again. Again, something I'd like to see.

    he only missed 2 or 3 shows i don't think it's a big deal? also if he did leave they don't need to replace him im sure they can tour with one guitar player

    I'm pretty sure that the fact that Hetson leaving Bad Religion is just a rumor.

    As for me going to Bad Religion shows, I saw them at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, that was March 2008. I saw them again at their 30th anniversary shows in April 2010 at the House of Blues at the Sunset Strip, and with Rise Against at the Long Beach Arena in April 2011. I wanted to see them again last month, but I couldn't go because didn't have enough money to pay a ticket; that would have been the 4th time I've seen Bad Religion in concert.

    What a bummer. So, that might explain why he hasn't been touring with Bad Religion lately.

    This doesn't seem like a biggie, I get the feeling BR's probably going to be winding down as whole reasonably soon anyway, at least in terms of recording.
