News: Jen & Morgan

September 16th, 2009

Dear Cliks Fans,

I am sorry to announce that Morgan Doctor and Jen Benton have decided to leave The Cliks to pursue their own ambitions.

To be blunt, the road beat us up and knocked us out. When we all woke up, we each saw a different road ahead. These things happen, it’s that simple. I respect their decision and hope you will as well.

So what can I say kids, I started this alone, 3 albums and 8 line ups later, in the words of Sir Elton John, “I’m still standing”.

I am as stubborn as a mule and sometimes not the easiest person to work with but that is only because I demand and expect no less than 100% from the people I work with and that will never change and I will never apologize for it.

I started this band as a vehicle for my music and that is exactly what I will continue to do.

And come on now, I am no stranger to change. Line up changes, sex changes, you know, it’s all part of the big plan ☺

So for now, a little patience is required while I look to the new exciting line up that is to be the next Cliks!

So if you want a glimpse of our future candidates come to our show in Washington, DC on September 26th where we will have Brian Viglione of Dresden Dolls fame on drums. http://www.myspace.com/brianviglione

And just think of all the new crushes you can have on the new members!

Maybe we can have so many ongoing member changes that we can start a trading card series. Now that’s a good idea!

Everyone will all sit at shows trying to trade their doubles and the conversations will sound like this:

Girl #1 -”Hey, I have 2 Heidi Chans and no Morgan Doctor. I’ll trade you.”
Girl #2 “No way, I already have a Heidi Chan, how about you give me your Jen Benton for an Ezri Kaysen?”
Girl #1 – “Do you have any idea how long it took me to get this Ezri Kaysen? That is a really rare card. Only 20 in existence. No way. I had to trade one of my Lucas Silveira’s before top surgery for it.”
Girl# 2-”Well forget it then. You suck. Wanna make out?”
Girl#1- “Ok.”

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support and for seeing me through thick and thin. I’m a survivor and ain’t nothing gonna keep me down.

Sandra Berhnard said it best about her fans…”Without you, I’m nothing.”

With love and gratitude,
Lucas Silveira

    Of all the days that I decide to look the band up on the net, first on FB and then here to check when you guys will be coming to Hawaii and I read your post, so guess Hawaii won’t be happening anytime soon. Whatever happens, you have always and will continue to rock. And I don’t care about any crap about the split, I just love the tunes and much mahalos for that. Happy hunting. Aloha!

    As much as I love the Morgan, Doctor, and Silveira trio, this post was an entertaining way to see the brighter side of things. I wish you luck and of course will be waiting as impatiently as ever to hear your new stuff!!

    Lucas,
    You are an unbelievably talented artist, an icon, and an inspiration. Whatever you do should be followed by great success. Let me know when you’ll be in Northern California ..and I’ll be there to listen to you fully ROCK OUT, with whoever is by your side onstage.

  6. Rachel says:

    Lucas, when you come here in Brazil? hehe

    Success!
    I love this band.
    kisses!
