"The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us (Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood). It’s so rare to have the chance to be able to do things like this and we are infinitely grateful to all of our fans for making it possible. We hope you found it worthwhile as well."

The post added that while the band technically may not be together anymore, both of them [Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood] share an inseparable bond that will connect them no matter where life takes them.

"Thank you so much for everything," the post concluded.

Shocking and sad. But other than the The Rolling Stones all groups have broken and gone their separate ways. Allah Hafiz and good luck. Salams
