Now, I know many, if not all, the people on this new board are from the Star 6. Can we just try and keep this from becoming what the Star 6 is? Basically try and keep it all FOTS talk and no "i think this is bad for Dispatch" talk. I know it will be hard with little know about the nuts and bolts of this project, but one thing is for certain. Charlie Stokes wants this to be far from his former band. He is not using the name Chad and he is not saying "of Dispatch." So lets keep it the way he wants it and talk about FOTS. Rock on!

I agree, but I would just like to say that we were a little surprised that on the flyers being handed out on friday, it said: Featuring Chad Stokes Urmston Of Dispatch

Wierd. But in any case, I'm very excited for FOTS, it sounds awsome.

i think most people that already know of FOTS know its chad from dispatch

but aside from that, i agree

Flag Of The Shiners is not DISPATCH. so we shouldnt have to hear much about that

Yes, most people realize that its the same Chad... nobody is denying that.

I think the key point is that Chad is not trying to promote Flag of the Shiners as a solo project he is doing while in Dispatch, but rather a distinct and separate entity.

As to the following of Dispatch's fan base for FOTS, Chad thinks it would be great if the fans follow, but he doesn't want to draw them a line to get there...

Peace -

i agree, and i also kinda feel like a lot of kids are coming here just because star 6 went down... and i mean i can understand that, but i know a lot of *the other band's* fans liked the more poppy sound and not everyone will be into FOTS. but, who knows

they will use "of dispatch" so that they can be recognized and heard by those who are only familiar with dispatch. just because they aren't using the name dispatch anymore doesn't mean that they will become another commercial entity of mainstream recordings. without underground word of mouth and pirated internet music, it would have been near impossible for all of us to hear dispatch, so keep on spreading dispatch as well as charlie, pete, and at this rate brad will have his own as well...anybody foresee a touring session with the three of them performing their own material

i agree. the main reason for this "hiatus" we'll call it for the sack of argument, is so that three guys who spent 7 years of their life together can have a break and do their own thing. i don't foresee a show with the three of them appearing at the same time in the near or distant future...the exception being Killbourn and the DVD thing.

and i really think Charlie is trying to establish his own identity. he saw what marketing Pete as "of dispatch" did. he flopped in rooms too big for him to play and Dispatch crowds showed up expectin a dispatch show. he needs to be independent and star over.

Rock on. Btw do we have any tour dates for Chad yet?

I might be one of the 'teenie-boppers' you all refer to (18), or young ones, or whatev', and maybe Chad doesn't want this to be a Dispatch thing or thought as as "Of Dispatch", but you know what, it's sort of saddening to see all of you refuse to talk about Dispatch here because of us "Teenie-Boppers" you refer to, but you know what, i found out about FOTS(FTS), and so will every other true dispatch fan, because Chad is tight as hell, and i've loved every one of his songs, as do all the people I know that know of him... I know you guys love them, old or new, but the way it seems it sounds is that you guys are forgetting about what he did with Dispatch, and he did awesome things, changed my whole CD collection completely... and even I wish taht Chad, Dis, Pete, Brad, would be only someone that i know of like back in the day, but i felt good dispatching their music throughout my friends and my city...

sorry if i pissed anyone off...

it seems to be a red sky morning.

ummm no you're def. not one of the "teenyboppers", id say all but five people on here are younger than you... including me... (17)... i think teenyboppers are judged more by the way they act, not by how old they are... and a KANSAN/MISSOURIAN dispatch fan... that's so badass... i spent all summer living with the coolest guy ever from KC, MO... tried to convert him into dispatch, but it was tough... that'd be hilarious if you know him... he goes to a catholic school in KC, kansas i think...

why is it sad that we don't want to discuss Dispatch on this board? I believe there is a whole message board dedicated to Dispatch called the Star 6. That's where you go talk about them. This is for Charlie's project. Yes, a lot of fans will be over here and will follow Chad, but they have to know that it is not Dispatch and will never be Dispatch. Chad wants to distance himself from the band and this is how he wants to do it. Coming on this board and talking about Dispatch would be a great disrespect to Chad. So relax and enjoy FOTS or FTS if you prefer, and let's leave the past behind.
