Here's that interview I was talking about, just after Jamo left Survivor in 2006/2007:

http://www.melodicrock.com/interviews/jimijamison07.html


From what he was saying there, I'd guess the only reason he's back in the band is if the money's been sorted out, or if he's financially/legally obligated.
