    In 2010, Cheap Trick replaced drummer Bun E Carlos with guitarist Rick Nielsen’s son, at least in the live realm. Despite this personnel swap Bun still considers himself a full member of the band. Yet he doesn’t even talk to his bandmates. In a chat with PunkGlobe, he said, "I'm still in the band, but I don[t tour. I don’t hear from them. I prefer to be out on the road performing with them. Maybe we’ll kiss and make up."

    That doesn't sound like it makes much sense. So weird, right?

    What do you think of Bun's comments?
