The OPM Rock Superstar Band, Franco was confirmed disbanded. After only 3 years of great jamming with their very own rock reggae music.
According to Gabby Alipe on Little John Villamor’s Facebook status message:
"All four members (Gabby Alipe @ JanJan Mendoza of Urbandub, 8 Toleran of Queso, Buwi Meneses of Parokya ni Edgar) have decided to step away from the band
FRANCO due to conflict of schedules. We all felt that it was the best move to allow Franco Reyes to promote his music better without having to find session players whenever we can’t perform due to conflict of schedule with our other bands. There ...is no bad blood between the members. This was a professional/career decision. The 3 years we toured together were some of the best times we’ve had. We wanna thank all of the people that have supported us and hope that they continue to support Franco despite our absence. A new FRANCO album will be released soon and we’re sure it will be great. Keep supporting OPM. – Gabby Alipe"
No worries… Good thing that we will still continue to hear Franco Reyes’ music as solo artist. The other four members will continue to bring music together with their bands. Urbandub (Gabby Alipe and JanJan Mendoza), Parokya ni Edgar (Buhawi Meneses) and the reunited Queso (Paolo “Ocho” Toleran), coming soon to hit the mainstream again.
According to Ocho Toleran
“hehe.. dito lang kami mga chong! hehe.. maraming maraming apir sa lahat! tama na showbizan ha. parepareho lang yan. tugtugan parin yan lahat kahit saan naten tignan. kahit san pa kami bumagsak, tugtugan parin lang yan. basta jam lang.. jam lang ng jam.. hehe.. tara! =)”
Feel free to watch one of their last performance together....
Let’s continue to support Pinoy Artists!
Respect and One Love to all! Peace
