Dear Brian, never before has a post soothed my troubled mind in such a manner!

Even though the way things are with the band's current state have not changed, the way you explained the situation makes all the difference. It's totally sad and depressing for me to hear that a band is done, but when you explain that this band just part of the  experience of creativity- just another piece of the puzzle in two great artists' lives...well I totally get that! I respect you and Amanda as artists so much, and I can't wait to see where your creativity will lead you both.

Rock Alimony !!! :knuppel2:

Wish you both the best of luck, thanks for the good times!

*edit*

That YouTube clip is just nasty!  I mean the way it was put together. A real baiting journalistic hatchet job.  I don't think it was in Brian's control, the dutch dudes who made that need to go to a coffee shop and chill out.

Viggie, you made me cry. Although your post did make me feel a lot better.

In all due respect I think Mr. Viglione may need to study the ways of the internet a little better, for it is a sensitive place.  Making a very definitive comment on a youtube video, about a band youre in or were previously in, in which you both contradict each other continuously is never a good way to go about things.

But for better or for worse I love and respect you 100%. I'll always support you. Good luck and Long Live Brian Viglione!

Thanks Brian you rock!  I am so glad that this has been cleared up officially, I was getting worried there for a while. 

Referring to what seejackrun mentioned about his/her 'dolls saved my life story' - I guess that there are many of those stories.  I guess in a way that is why we are all here - the dolls 'saved' us in some way or other, even if we are not yet aware of it.  So I suppose we all freaked out when we thought it was all over so suddenly and so completely - for me at least it felt like the one thing I relied upon most in the hardest times was gone. 

So Brian, thanks taking the time to come here and explain the situation - I understand and respect your right to have a break from each other and the Dolls.  It doesn't seem so final as it's now a 'hiatus' as opposed to being 'over' and that makes me feel ok about the band not making music together anytime soon.

In a way it's good that 'punk caberet' has gone it's seperate ways - spread the love!  :)

I am mostly sad that this all came out while Amanda is stuck on a plane or otherwise in transit and not able to do a whole lot about it. She has been so open.

I want to make a whole lot of inappropriate comments in jest about how at least there will be good songs out of the pain, or how maybe the lovely Miss Mandy can follow Brittney's lead and write about it, but it would all just be taken the wrong way (and I suspect that she has too much class, and things seem happy and stuff....but oh the humour, we need humour).

I hope you enjoy spreading your wings Viggie, and that it brings you all that you hope.

Amanda, Australia can't wait (but we will).

Thank you; this helps (chicks love having their feeeeelings validated).

And I suspect you know that communication on the internet is a tricksy business, hence your avoidance of it up to now.  All sorts of learning and growing....

This is very sad news indeed, albeit not completely unexpected. I feel privileged that I had the opportunity to see the Dolls perform when they came to Aus in '06 (I was underage at the time so thank fucking god for fake ID's!). I've seen some brilliant musicians, but to this day that gig ranks as one of my very favourites. The intensity and connection between Amanda & Brian on stage...it's like they're musical soulmates.

Anyway, I don't want to make this sound like a fucking eulogy, because I'm sure the Dolls will reappear in some incarnation or another in the future, but if not, thankyou for some great records and amazing memories.

I'm really sad 'cos I only discovered tha Dollz about 6 months ago & never got to see them live (I'm in the UK).

But I *did* see Amanda at the ICA, and am going to see her at Koko's :-)

And I'd love to see Brian live, doing whatever - any chance of UK shows, guv?

It was an interview, not a self produced video.

Rock on Brian...Rock on Amanda.

I wish you both happiness and I hope for the future.

they'll be back, there will be another album..  their schedules just have to line up again..

anyone who doesn't believe this, go watch/listen to "sing" from the Roundhouse DVD...

that's what the dresden dolls are about.... the happiness in that performance... that's what's right in the world..

Why would you be upset that people are moving on to make newer music to their hearts content?

Now..the day they took Roseanne off the air, I was a fucking mess....
