Sure I'll elaborate - but it's not very exciting. I left for a combination of reasons. Most of my income came from outside of the band, as I was a fairly busy session player at the time. So the band never exerted a huge financial pull on me, even though being in the band definitely added to my cachet as a session player. Boingo was always clearly Danny's band, long before I joined, with very little room for compositional input from the other members. No stress over that, but in order to flap my creative wings I knew I would have to fly somewhere else. That led to me starting my own project, named Zuma II. We ended up being offered a contract with Pasha/CBS Records. I couldn't give Zuma II the attention it needed while still in Boingo, and I was having a lot of fun writing songs and growing a band from scratch. Kerry Hatch was also feeling the urge to test new waters, so I asked him to join up with us. Unfortunately that band never quite got off the ground.
But ultimately the biggest influence on my decision was the birth of my first son, Keegan. Home with my wife and new baby meant a lot more to me than endless rehearsals and funky tours, so a few weeks after Keegan entered the world I tendered my resignation to Danny. It was all quite amicable. It was simply time to move on.
I didn't know much about Zuma II beside the facts that it was a band with Richard and Kerry. I wondered what the music sounded like? I did a search on Zuma II and found this bit of info. Perhaps other forum members will find the information interesting and helpful.

Oh, good thing Ribbs got the performing with the Boingo Boys question outta the way. I'm sure the question would have risen down the road with two Vatos Halloween shows this year.

Florida Georgia Line is my favourite country music band. Headliners Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are those guys that could make anyone sing along. It's the reason I like to attend their shows. And - that's surprisingly beatiful - in 2019 they have CAN'T SAY IT AIN'T COUNTRY TOUR which covers all the US towns and cities.

Breaking Benjamin is my favourite band of 2000s. Breaking Benjamin had so many hit songs! The ones I remember are 'The Diary of Jane', 'Tourniquet' and their hit 'So Cold'.
