There’s sick bastards everywhere…
It was revealed today that Ian Watkins, lead singer of the rock band Lostprophets pleaded guilty to multiple sexual offences involving children. The most serious by far was the attempted rape of a baby.
BBC News reported on court documents that show Watkins recorded his crimes and kept the evidence on his computer. The prosecution also brought charges against two female co-defendants who “abused their own children and made them available to Watkins for him to abuse.”
It is affirmed that drugs played a significant part in the offense as South Wales Police representative Peter Doyle said, “There is no doubt in my mind that Ian Watkins exploited his celebrity status in order to abuse young children.”
I had to think long and hard about writing this, but I feel that with The Other Side Reviews’s involvement in all music news, it is only right to publicise that our musical heroes can be as false and despicable as any mortal being.
