Thanks to reader RK for first alerting me this a.m. to Justin Ellis’s departure as the all-purpose keyboard player for several of the various Crabb family spin-offs out there. This comment suggests he going to work for John Hagee, which makes sense since one of the Crabb twins and his wife signed on with Hagee not too long ago. It’s too bad to see such a talented guy scatter his force this way. I mean, I get that the audience is larger and the money is no doubt better and steadier with Hagee, but … yeah … well, it’s Hagee, who seems to be on a prolonged campaign to be a kind of one-stop-shopping for Christian craziness.
Anyway, I’ve been so deeply and abidingly impressed with Ellis’s subtly and gracefulness at the keyboard that I think I kinda made that silly fanboy mistake of not remembering that artists don’t always make professional decisions that I like as much as their music. In any event, good luck, Justin.Email this Post
