Guitarist Ben Kasica departs from Skillet after 10 years

THE GUITARIST Ben Kasica, who has been with US rockers Skillet for 10 years, has left the band. Read a band statement, "We have had 10 years working together, and It has been an amazing ride! From the years we spent driving through the night in a van; to playing concerts all the way around the world, I've seen Ben transform from the kid who was nervous to play a guitar solo, to the rocker who now plays a solo...with his teeth! I always knew the time would come for Ben to leave and pursue other dreams, and now it is here. We are a family and we are going to miss him. We appreciate how hard he has worked for us and wish him the best in his life off the road." Kasica plans to produce and develop artists for his own Skies Fall Studios and design for his LifeLoveMusic Clothing. CR
