This is just unbelievable!
Boyd left the band a few months ago before tickets went on sale for the 2018 tour. Now it may be a little more clear as to why.
Dave Matthews Band was "shocked" by accusations of sexual misconduct by Boyd Tinsley and now they're shocking the rock world by firing the longtime violinist.
In a statement released on Thursday night, DMB says they weren't previously aware of the accusations and reveal that Tinsley is "no longer a member of the band."
Consequence of Sound reports that trumpet player James Frost-Winn of the band Crystal Garden accused Tinsley of making unwanted sexual advances and comments and that Frost-Winn filed a $9-million lawsuit against Tinsley alleging a "hostile work environment."
Tinley joined the band in 1992 and has played on all nine of the band's studio albums, including their upcoming Come Tomorrow, which will be released on June 8.
This is the Tweet Boyd posted back in February regarding taking a break from Dave Matthews Band:
I need to take a break from the band & touring 2 focus on my family & my health 4 a while. I will miss you guys & my brothers in the band but I’m somewhat worn out & need 2 spend more time with my family & 2 bring more balance to my life. Thanks 4 ur Love. #peaceandLoVE— Boyd Tinsley (@bt_dmb) February 3, 2018
