Steven Page no longer a Barenaked Lady

Band will go on without their frontman

by

Singer-guitarist Steven Page has left The Barenaked Ladies “by mutual agreement,” the band’s website announced last night. During their 20 years together, the Ladies recorded 11 albums, had five top singles in Canada, and received multiple Junos.  But the last year was a difficult one for the group, with Page’s arrest for drug possession in July (he reached a deal with prosecutors in October that felony drug charges would be dropped if he stayed out of trouble for six months). In August, bandmate Ed Robinson miraculously survived a float plane crash with three others. This year, however, the band appeared to be on a mini-comeback, with a Juno Award nomination for its children’s album, Snacktime. The band says it will continue to tour and record without Page who is said to have solo ventures in the works but it just won’t be the same.
