Brad - Love ya man, always have and always will. You will never know the impact you have had on my life and still do. Seeing you in pain after the shows always hurt me as well because even though you are my favorite guitarist and part of such an amazing band, to me I always saw something different. You cared and genuinely hung out with your fans and pushed through the pain as long as you could because you knew that what God was doing with you was and is far greater than you could imagine. Once I saw you as an amazing guitarist and somewhat of an icon, but you became someone I hold dear and call friend. I would hope you see it the same way (even though I can be annoying and unpredictable at times). You are a blessing and I hope to catch wind of your influence from here on out.
Ohh, and my brother and sister live in Nashville, so if it's alright with you (I wouldn't bug you otherwise), I'd love to swing by sometime in a few months and say hey. I'm glad you finally get a chance to settle and relax, you deserve it.

Joey - I know I haven't known you as long and we haven't really had a chance to get to really know each other (definitely hard when always touring plus a wife and a kid), but I remember when you first joined permanently that I was having a hard time......adjusting. Nonetheless you showed me and proved to me that you are an amazing player and you know how to put on one heck of a good show and to relax and have fun. You fit so well it scared me and I'm proud to have been there for all you have given us. As many others have put it - Words cannot express how I feel right now. Sad you are leaving, but happy that you aren't off the map. I look forward to seeing you in the future, whether you remember me or not, lol. Keep the music flowing!

Kevin/Tim - You continually amaze me. I've known for some time something like this was inevitable, but I could not be happier to know that you are continuing on. You go through so much and sacrifice so much to be on the road and touch people. From the moment I saw you live for the first time, Disciple became heroes to me.....role models really. I never really had a childhood hero (except Batman), but I know that when I first met you guys that instantaneously I felt God's presence. I know it might be hard to understand because I only get to see you every once in a while and that you are just men like me and the next guy - with problems and doubts and everything - but Elijah was a man just like us and look what God did with him! The difference is that night after night you put yourself out there and allow God to use you. That is what I admire - you make me want to be a better Christian. God has much more planned for you and I could not be happier with the guys you have picked up - (Staple may be gone, but their spirit never dies). :D

I love you all and I want to thank you for how you have affected my life. I look forward to seeing you again sometime,

Ethan

Brad,

I miss those late-nights a few years back when a bunch of us used to "chat" online together.

I'll continue praying for you. While I'll miss seeing you perform on stage, I'm happy to know that you are moving forward in God's will. He will continue to bless you richly.

I'm interested to see what the new Disciple will sound like. Two guitars makes for a lot of options. Southern Rock to Rock....woo hoo!! But..........

I will really miss Brad. It won't be the same.

It is sad to see you go Brad and Joey, but I'm sure your wives are glad to have you home with them. May God bless your marriages, and Brad may He bless you with many babies.

I'm sorry I missed all the posts above.

Joey went back to his original band Radio Deadspace for awhile right after he left Disciple, taking the place of his brother in RDS. They are no more, but they're very much worth checking out! And they may be doing some recording for fun soon, but that's the extent of it.
