Guys,

I always respected him, even though I did not follow the WHO, but somehow suspected he had been abused.

That is what made me feel sorry for him, that the media turned on him because of his fame.
I never even read his lyrics, so I did not know of those songs.

Paying for CP is indeed part of making money for perps who pay kids to do stuff.
I got a life sentence for being an innocent boy, maybe he did too.

I would not want to read what he wrote about sex stuff, but he was totally misguided in doing it, and it will keep the media and cops going after him all the more.

He is intelligent, he should be given a chance to at least a life, without the media constantly gunning for him, but first he needs to find himself, because sadly he cannot do it,

Kirk,

That's what I was afraid of. So far as I know it was always just the two wild ones: Townshend and Moon.

Kirk,

yes I remember that creep, but I was in no way a Who fan, so I never really got to know what went on.

After reading a few things about him, I can now have a better picture, the music industry seemed to be alive with pervs at the time, probably still is,

What is Roman Polanski up to these days?

For the record, I don't know enough about the story to know if Townshend is a perp or a survivor, but I wonder at his seeming propensity to keep showing up in the news. Although that said, the media will be the 1st in line to rape you if you show even the smallest sign of non-conformity or weakness, especially if you are a celebrity.

I wonder if Teri Hatcher has these problems?

They are still there in the music industry usually in high powered positions. Out of my abusers five were conected to the music industry either by way of the music press, owner of clubs or in the actual industry by working for labels, radio stations or management of some very high profile stars.

Kirk, funnily I worked for a band but only as a small cog in it.
My best friend was the idea behind it, and I got pretty much out of it when he got DJs to work with him.

I have a soundtrack somewhere of the Christians, which never got released because they are a dysfunctional family, and too much in fighting between them.

I did the bass line for brothers and sisters, one day when Dan and his family went shopping.
It was the original soundtrack and is hard to find, but it has been on radio one.

You guessed it, many times schoolgirls would hang around his house, and ask me if I was part of the band, and I would say sort of.
I would not have used those kids in any way, nor would Dan, but the DJs would.

I worked with this guy because he had so many cool friends who could play tom toms the Afro Carribean way, and we just drifted into making music our own way.

I think that Moon and Townsend got into the wrong type of company.
You, or any of us choose the company we want to spend our lives around.

Sadly, to be famous, you must forfeit something of your life to get anywhere.
Maybe Satan works in mysterious ways.

I shunned him out age ten, and I would rather be poor than humiliated, and rich,

Famous people are used to just shrugging things off. One noted film director, Victor Salva, was arrested and served jail time in the late 80's for taping himself molesting a young boy, an actor in a movie he was directing at the time. When he got out of jail, he kept right on keeping on; he's the director of those recent "Jeepers Creepers" movies and is reasonably well off.

Survivor or not, I found Townshend's child porn "research" technique to be very unwise, "call to the police" or not. After having endured that mess, writing erotic fiction involving minors is brainlessness on a truly spectacular level.

Melliferal,

I certainly see what you mean and I don't condone this kind of thing, but, well, I don't think it's brainlessness - it really is something else.

I keep thinking of my friend anxious to get clean of heroin years ago. He and his wife take their child on a camping/rafting/canoeing trip, they set up camp, and the little boy snuggles up with Mommy to have a story read to him, and meanwhile here's Daddy shooting up Mommy.

Leave aside the part where the ODed mother is beyond saving a minute later. How can anyone NOT see something wrong with this picture??? But that's what happens and even very intelligent people get caught in this trap, not just with drugs but all kinds of things. I'm really at a loss to explain it.

Much love,
Larry
