Lets just hope he doesn't decide to try and murder his wife again
This is a shit mindset to be honest. The guy is completely remorseful, and completely honest & open about what he did.
He's done his time and proven that he can come back to be a functioning member of society and is a changed man because of it.
Yeah he fucked up, yeah his actions are unforgivable, but the close mindedness of the community in holding this shit against the dude isn't helping anyone.
They've just posted a video on their youtube titled 'Discussion' with the original lineup where they go through all of this. It's a pretty cool listen if anyone is interested.

Edit: The song is literally about him & digging his own grave, dealing with what he's done... What more do you want from the oke? :rolleyes:

Woah, calm down there nelly. I meant it jokingly, not in a "fuck this guy" way. I just finished watching the discussion right after your reply.

You are right, he does seem genuinely sorry and is owning up to what he has done. But how much can a person truly change? Nobody knows if being in a shit place in his life could drive him to make the same mistakes again, hence "lets just hope".

That being said, the song is awesome and I really hope they continue as a band. I actually forgot how much I loved AILD. I think he was arrested just before they were set to play at RAMfest with Rise Against and Bring Me The Horizon. I remember being super pissed about that.

Lol i can still remember being so upset for them having to cancel "due to unforeseen person circumstances beyond their control". Lets hope they continue and do a tour to SA. Maybe they are at a discount price now that there is a reputation issue lol.:p
