There's really no coming back from this, is there? It's not like he's "been arrested on suspicion of..." - he's been charged. And it looks like they swooped on him out of the blue, his last Twitter posts were on Saturday night regarding watching Twilight on TV; didn't look like he knew what was going to happen at that point. I do feel bad for Mike Lewis - from my experiences with him in the past an always genuinely nice guy - his band is now fucked, their careers are over. And the ex-members will always be "tarred with the paedo brush" now. Not a good look for anyone. It's hard to say "shocked", I have seen some insane stuff on the internet regarding Ian, but it's always been quickly pulled and if anyone ever tried to post anything on here it'd be taken down immediately. When I say "insane" I don't mean illegal, but just bonkers in that "looking for the next crazy sex high" kind of way.

In a perverse way I hope it's a correct allegation otherwise (as above) he'll be tarred for life and completely shot even if it's not true.

Absolutely the impression I got from what certain friends of mine have told me about his antics. The stories kept getting worse and worse to the point where you thought "Either these are made up lies or one day he will sink to noncery/bestiality/necrophilia."

Gutted for Mike.

In a naive way, I thought this was a simple case of 'underage groupie goes with rockstar' shocker. But shit, 13 is sickeningly young and as you said, there are charges not suspicions. From the point of view of mainstream music, the rest of the band are up shit creek, but the HC and punk community are a bit more logical with approaching this type of stuff. Look at what happened with Buddha and Blood For Blood, there is a quiet acceptance that the band will play without him and people are still willing to go and see them

They can't make a living from going back to hardcore bands though can they? And how many of them other than Mike and Watkins had anything to do with hardcore anyway?

This is so fucked.

[size=4][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Woah - someone commented on Ian Watkins' Facebook Page on 25th November - "[color=#333333]think you may be shutting this page down when certain things reach court. Friendly warning." - best following comment from today regarding that post - "He's a Looper!"[/color][/font][/size]

To be honest I've seen enough of Santa coming these past few days to last me a lifetime. I'm keeping a low profile on this one until we hear what the court has to say. Not because I'm a friend or a fan, but because the internet actually scares me nowadays - one wrong taking the piss tweet or comment and next thing you know you're in the slammer yourself.

damn man
it was just this week that I read that the guitarist from LP (that isn't Mike) produced the last Brutal Attack record which I thought was a bit questionable.

You didn't audition for them or something ? I'm sensing a lot of bile here.
