Oli Skyes has commented on the Ian Watkins trial. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that "biggest victims" portion is just really poorly worded.
So Watkins was sentenced & justice was served, wether you think it was too short a stretch or not. My heart goes out to all the victims effected, but I would like you all to consider the impact and destruction watkins has inflicted on his band, and see how them themselves are in some ways the biggest victims of this nightmare. He destroyed the legacy of Lost Prophets (which were my favourite band ever back in the day) -when your band ends you want to be able to look back at all the good times, listen to the songs you made, reminisce, but that is no longer an option. He has made it extremely difficult for them to continue their love of music and art without people treating them differently because of one mans actions. What ever they choose to do in the future we should support them 110% and not let one nonces life ruin 5 good peoples lives. Which brings me to Richard J Oliver’s Incredible art. He recently asked to paint a picture influenced by me, which is awesome, and he is a truly gifted artist. go add him on twitter- @RJOliverfineart and check out his work. and check out the painting he did influenced from a picture of me! (ABOVE THIS TWEET) rad!
Yeah, i think its just extremely poorly worded. There is still debate on what or how much they knew. There are plenty of articles explaining how widespread it was known that he had sex with underage girls all the time, and his exgirfriend went to the police four years ago to say what he wanted to do to children and they did nothing. I don't think they band had any indication what he was doing to children/babies though so this must be extremely hard for them. Also, i had to look up what "nonces" meant and the sentence now makes perfect sense.
I've never listened to his band but it's just a poorly worded sentence, there's no need to get the pitchforks out here. If anything he wanted to plug his new found friends art work and felt he had to throw his thoughts on lostprophets in there.
