Former Fall Out Boy head honcho Patrick Stump posted a blog the other day about how he's been depressed lately and how he's considering quitting the music business. He talks about how huge the negative backlash to the last Fall Out Boy album was and his singles career. Apparently fans were sending him death threats, chanting **** at him at gigs and even buying tickets just to turn up and boo him. It's really quite a sad and depressing read. I didn't listen to Folie A Duex, but the singles seemed fine to me and I can't imagine it being that bad or much of a departure from their previous work. Either way, it's sad to see him potentially quit as I thought he was a good songwriter and he certainly had a good voice. These so-called "fans" sound like a bunch of faggots and should be ashamed of themselves.
