according to a blog post on Oat's myspace, he is no longer Skillet's guitar tech. i was gonna post it here, but it is kinda personal, so i dont want to post it without his permission. But he does have a significant other.
Sad to see him go, i loved talking to him at the shows. he is a neat guy, and im gonna miss that. but i wish him the best!

So long Oats... keep on rockin

Sad to see him go -- he's a cool guy -- but if it's the path he must walk, then so be it.

I'll eat extra oatmeal in remembrance of him. ;D

Sad to see him go, but hey gain a wife in swap of being a guitar tech sounds like a sweet deal to me. ;)

04-10-2007, 06:10 PM
Ohhhh, I hope he at least still posts on panheads, he kicks butt!

04-10-2007, 06:21 PM
Yeah, it'd be nice if he still posted on Panheads. Gonna miss him as Skillet's guitar tech, however.

04-10-2007, 08:36 PM
He told me about this a few months ago...I thought everyone knew. ??? Either way, I'm going to miss him!

04-10-2007, 09:37 PM
Yah, he's been off for a couple weeks now. Sad to see him go, but I understand why. Oats rules.

*wipes away a tear*

Well, au revoir mon ami! You have been a great guitar tech, as well as a superb stand-in for John during the song or two he wants to move around more. :) We will miss thee, though we hardly knew thee.

i just wanted to thank all of you.. for somereason i randomly thought of panheads tonight.. stumbled on some posts.. saw this one. it means a lot.. it was a difficult departure, but thank you for your support.. i will say that i got engaged, mainly because i got off the road. we are getting married in august 2008.. its very exciting. and i will keep posting here.. its been a crazy couple months, so that would probably explain why i havent been on here.. and i just havent thought of it. but yeah.. anyway.. thanks again to all of you.. you guys rock hard.

I was here when Oats was on and that was pretty exciting to me. I don't know why exactly. I just think he's cool.

05-28-2007, 02:13 PM
whats funny is that more people are talking about it now, than when when it happened 2 months ago.

05-28-2007, 02:25 PM
Well, I posted before. I checked to make sure when I saw that he was checking the thread. ;)

Perhaps they've finally regained the ability to talk again now that the shock has worn off.

One Question Oats. who is replacing you? i know Sean did it at the show i was at in May, is that permanent?

05-28-2007, 09:07 PM
