On Facebook, I started For The Love Of Kasim a couple of months ago. I have on my page a discussion board. I started the topic about Kasim leaving Meat Loaf's band. Here is what I posted:
Kasim has been a major part of the band for the last 10 years or so taking over as musical director. That was a big job for him to do having to work with all of Meat's music and be the bass player. I enjoyed seeing Kasim with Meat Loaf two times-1996 and 2005.
Kasim has said "it was time to leave". I agree with him on this decision. When I read he had said that at his show in Philly, I was shocked! Now he can focus more on his career and still work with Todd.
What are your thoughts about him leaving the band?
