    Very disappointing news indeed. He isn't convicted yet, but it doesnt look good for him either way.

    I was never a big fan of Lostprophets, but He and the band will be tarnished with this for the rest of their career now. Which really is a shame. :sad:

    He was living mine (and many others) dream of touring and writing music that people enjoy, and he goes and ruins it. I guess that's the end for lostprophets then :/

    i HOPE you're right, but even if he didn't, the british media have ruined him.

    Wow, that was some intense news. I can only wish it was all a misunderstanding and that the allegations aren't true. But who knows.

    I really liked Lostprophets, especially on their 2nd and 3rd albums, but they seriously underwhelmed me on their last two efforts, or maybe I've just moved on from that particular music style (something I've come to realize as I'm writing this).

    'Darkest Blue' is the only song I can say I LOVE from their last 2 albums.Let's see how the story unfolds.

    Christ Ian was pushing some snuff film territory wasn't he.

    "Allegedly".

    They must have some serious evidence on the bastard, I can imagine if this all turns out to be a lie he could sue a lot of people for a loooooooooooot of money.

    Bahahaha what the fuck.

    Wow. That is insane.

    I'm not going to brand the guy a monster yet, but, like Mark said, his reputation is pretty much destroyed even if he is innocent.

    Chino's a notorious douchebag that runs his mouth with bands that he's still technically friends with. He's done similar things to Korn, and he worked with Mike Shinoda on that The Raid soundtrack. Fatty just likes to run his mouth.

    Also Ian here is apparently a notorious dickhead as well, something I've heard a lot recently.

    Yeah, I've heard that the singer in Lost Prophets was a huge douchebag a lot. I never knew about Chino, but whatever. How did LP rip him off? Because they covered My Own Summer? Mike and Chester did awesome on that cover. It's not really ripping them off, it's just a cover. Tons of artists do covers.

    Just by being nu-metal in general. But that's just Chino being a tool, he's like that one ballbreaker friend, always just mouthing off.

    That interview looks about 10 years old too. Doesn't really hold much water now. Linkin Park sounded like a lot of bands back then.

    I didn't think what Chino said was really that rude, plus he is friends with Mike and stuff. But I did think what Ian said was pretty rude and unnecessary.

    I can't believe what he said about how he hated Taproot. Stephen Richards is one of the nicest "famous people" I've met. Also, calling Chester a tool... What the fuck. Even if his allegations are dropped, this thread has made me change my mind about lost prophets. Getting to hear him talkin' that shit has made me group him into the asshole category. Also, Blackee's first post in the thread had me laughing my ass off.
