Here is what I think happened after reading and hearing some speculation. HORSE signed to a major record label. HORSE has the potential to be a very big and successful band. I think this may have happened due to little rumors I have been hearing about and even little things Erik says like and now Ive signed all my rights away to do my side music. This usually comes with big record labels. And I think Dash was not happy with this decision and will play till the end of the year and unfortunately leave on good terms/

i don't think that's it, being that dash thought it would be a good idea to tour with linkin park, for the band's sake
i don't think he'd have that much of a problem with signing to a bigger label if he didn't have a problem with touring with some shit popular band like that

If you've seen Earth Tour I'm pretty you noticed Dash's green and black five string bass. I can't see a brand name on it ANYWHERE. Does anyone know what kind of bass it is? Please and thank you.

This bass? Pretty sure that says "Carvin" on the headstock if its the one you're talking about.

To bring this thread back on topic:

- He uses his thumb during the tapping part of "The Red Tornado"
- I wish the band didn't forget about me during the last chance I had to smoke pot with the guy.
- His bio on the Earth Tour page.
- The shot in Earth Tour where he walks from the hotel room in China, crossing the street to the venue, and you see that Horse The Band is already playing Heroes Die, and he pick up his bass, and joins them right on cue.
Actually, this shot is also part of why Gary and HTB are awesome.

His bio on the Earth Tour site is awesome. Once upon a time he wrote articles about classical music performances in the LA area. Seems to be a solid writer.

Dash, along with the rest of HORSE and Valentina Lisitsa, definitely sparked my love for classical music. He's also responsible for getting me into a lot of black, doom, and sludge metal from all the band shirts he wore in Earth Tour. Neurosis for lif.

I saw the videos of him playing bass on YouTube and it just blows me away how impressive his basslines are. I plan on doing a few bass covers of HTB songs and I have to say...some are pretty challenging but damn are they fun to play. The House of Boo and Lord Gold Throneroom are a couple I know currently. I really wish he hadn't left but whats done is done. He is the greatest.

Re: reasons why dash is awesome

Dash fully wrote/composed both of those instrumentals on AND. I wish he would've continued writing post-HORSE. I think he had/has the talent to write a really brooding, haunting record.

Fuck yeah. I've had Rotting Horse in my head while traversing broken trails. And vice versa. Well not really vice versa, but you get the idea.

And now I think Dash is even more awesome now I know he wrote those songs.
