Adam Gaynor, one of matchbox twenty’s longtime guitarists, is no longer with the band. No reason was given for the split. “The band has decided not to renew his sevices,” a source tells Billboard.com. The group is presently on hiatus as several members are tackling solo projects.
Chief among them is lead singer Rob Thomas’s solo debut, “Something To Be,” which is due in late April/early May via Atlantic. As first revealed here, the set sports a guest spot by John Mayer on guitar on an as-yet-unnamed track.
“Something To Be” will feature production by Virgin chairman/CEO Matt Serletic, who has worked regularly with matchbox twenty since its 1996 debut, “Yourself or Someone Like You.”
