EDIT 7/17 10:20 ET – Looks like the photo stream mentioned below has been secured.
I was reading some of the fan boards today and it’s amazing just how Google and Flikr have really made everyone’s life more public.
- Here’s the official police report made by Steven’s girlfriend’s roommate.
- Here’s Steven’s girlfriend’s photo stream on Flikr
Yeah, not feeling positive about the “exonerated on all charges” statement now. I hope Steven can straighten out his life. It’s sad to see him mixed up in all this. Hopefully the band can get through this. They seem like a pretty tight group, although, as I was saying, on the last cruise they seemed to have a kind of distance between them that I hadn’t seen before. I distinctly remember Steven kind of seeming just a tiny bit at odds with other band members. There was something mentioned about how he and Kevin had a fist-fight because Kevin wouldn’t introduce him to Lou Reed. Originally, I thought it was a joke, but they were so serious about it, I wasn’t sure.
With any luck, Steven will find a way to get through all this. Seems like a bit of a rock star mid-life crisis. I suppose I shouldn’t feel disappointed, knowing the music industry is what it is, but I can’t say it doesn’t bug me. But I want to see Steve rise above what I would call stupidity and move on, as so many other artists have done. Good luck, Steve. Good luck, BNL…
