Drew Ryan Scott of Varsity Fanclub updated fans on the boy band’s blog at MySpace (@varsityfanclub) on Saturday (May 30), talking about the news Thomas Fiss is leaving the group and Thomas Carter is his replacement. Drew writes:
Thomas can never be replaced… so I don’t want anyone thinking TC is his replacement or that TC is the reason Thomas is gone. It’s not like that at all.
TC is a great kid from Georgia…. he’s 16, about 5 ft 9/ 5 ft 10… amazing dancer and singer… fun… energetic… honest… and has that desire to do this in his eyes that I need to see in the eyes of someone who I’m putting my life on the line for.
He has all the great personality qualities that I saw in Thomas. No he isn’t Thomas and no he’s not trying to be Thomas…. he is just being him. We need a 5th person to sing in our 5 part harmonies. And we need someone to make all our steps and moves complete. Someone we can trust, someone we can build a VFC future with. And TC seems to the perfect fit with us…so please give him a chance..
You have someone new to learn about and someone new to laugh at. Thomas is still a couple MySpace clicks away… promise… he’s the same ol good ol Thomas we always knew and loved.
All I ask if you all give TC that shot you gave me and Thomas and the rest of the guys when you first heard about us…do you remember back then? The first time you heard or saw us… when was it??? where was it?? Give TC that same welcome feelings you gave us… The same feelings that make me want to wake up everyday and work around the clock to bring you new music, videos, and friendship. I am willing to not sleep at all for all of you… I will post videos, songs, pictures whatever you want all night. Because I am dedicated to all of you. Let’s take over the world together!
