Jon Walker Explains Panic! At The Disco Exit

(Buzznet) After splitting from Panic! At The Disco in July 2009 and then starting and splitting from The Young Veins, Jon Walker has set out to create his own music. He has been writing and recording in Chicago but found some time to talk with longtime friend Keltie Colleen about the band break-ups, married life and his new music.

On splitting from Panic! At The Disco: I didn't really understand everything that was going on while it was going on. The band was experiencing creative and personal differences even before I joined which made for a complicated working relationship. It was extremely hard for me to walk away from not only my good friends but the passion and hard work I put into the project.

On starting and ending The Young Veins: Ryan and I already had quite a few songs in the works intended for consideration on the next Panic album. Our collaboration was evolving which was especially motivating during and after the split. I really enjoyed the material and was hopeful that our new venture would create a balanced partnership but our differences made that difficult.

On the possibility of a Panic! reunion: For now, I enjoy the freedom of working on my own but making Pretty. Odd. was one of the greatest times of my life. For the most part, we (Rob Mathes included) were on the same page, working together in the studio and having a lot of fun in the process. None of us will ever be in that place again but hopefully it had enough impact on each of us to consider working together again if the opportunity presents itself. Check out the full interview here
