Burton left because he didn't get along with Dino. This was a feeling shared by Christian and Raymond, but Burton was the first to jump ship because he couldn't take Dino any more. Once he was gone, the band dissolved, leaving them free to reunite without Dino.
Christian is now on guitar because he's really a guitarist anyway - in fact that's why he was chosen as FF's bass player in the first place, because those parts really required a guitarist playing bass, not a dyed-in-the-wool bass player.
The new bass player on tour is Bryon Stroud from Strapping Young Lad, but Christian played all the bass on the new album, which by all reports may be the best of their career.
