Less than two weeks after exiting EVANESCENCE in very acrimonius circumstances, drummer Rocky Gray is auctioning several gold and platinum EVANESCENCE plaques via eBay. "Just kinda cleanin' house a little bit," Gray explained regarding his decision to part with the items.For a list of all the EVANESCENCE plaques that Rocky is selling, click here. Gray and guitarist John LeCompt left EVANESCENCE on May 5 for undisclosed reasons. LeCompt claimed on his MySpace.com blog that he was fired during a cell phone conversation with Amy Lee, while Rocky said he was asked by band management not to discuss the situation. However, Lee said in a statement that EVANESCENCE remains "alive and well" and will soon return to the road with new musicians. "John and Rocky were in EVANESCENCE for four years and we shared some great times together playing live, but they were ready to move on and so we have parted ways," she said. "EVANESCENCE is something I have loved and nurtured since I was 14, and I will continue to protect and fight for it as I always have." EVANESCENCE is due to return to the stage May 19 at the first Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, and has European dates on tap through late June.
