“I need to take a break from the band & touring 2 focus on my family & my health 4 a while," Tinsley, 54, wrote on Twitter. "I will miss you guys & my brothers in the band but I’m somewhat worn out & need 2 spend more time with my family & 2 bring more balance to my life. Thanks 4 ur Love.”
Today, Dave Matthews Band officially fired Tinsley after James Frost-Winn — a Seattle-based trumpet player who worked for Tinsley as a member of the band Crystal Garden — accused Tinsley of making unwanted sexual advances and comments throughout the decade that the two knew each other (via CoS).
Dave Matthews band said it was “shocked by these disturbing allegations and we were not previously aware of them.”
The Tinsley allegations seem like a legal minefield, so you can just read the story here.
