What is the real reason Josey Scott left Saliva? The common opinion is that he left the band to pursue a career in christian music. That wasn’t the case. Josey explains on the DOMKcast “That was the press release that they wanted to go with. That never was true. I am a Christian but I never wanted to pursue a christian career.” Life is taking on a new look for the former lead singer of Saliva.

Josey’s fans still encourage him to come back to Saliva on social media but he is intent on leaving that part of his life behind. He attempted to take his family on the road with him in 2007 and in his words “failed miserably”.
