Christopher Owens Quits Girls

2012-07-03 by Kiran EMERITUS | 34 Comments
Christopher Owens, the outspoken cult-born vocalist of Girls, has parted ways with the band he co-founded alongside Chet "JR" White.

The musician's twitter posted a series of messages explaining that Owens had chosen to leave the band for personal reasons and that the move was necessary "in order [for Owens] to progress". He went on to assure fans that he would "continue to write & record music" and that more news would follow.

During his time with Girls, Owens and White released the blog-buzz sensation Album and it's critically-adored follow-up Father, Son, Holy Ghost.

A few things:
1. I thought this was about the Japandroids song
2. I thought this meant he was gay
3. I thought it said Christopher Walken
