The other day we had a thread on criminals in the music world, and I decided to make a basic chart as an entry-point to criminal musicians. It's by no means all-encompassing, but here it is. As a rule I've only added people who were actually convicted of a crime, or who were definitely responsible (such as Gesualdo or Meek).

Guide:
>1. Child abuse (inc. child porn convictions)
>2-4. Murder and manslaughter
>5-6. Assaults (inc. sexual assaults)
>7. Weapons offences
>8. Thievery (incl. tax evasion)
>9. Drug offences resulting in prison sentences

If anyone needs any info on why I've included any of these don't hesitate to ask

He's said himself that although he was largely left alone as he was an American citizen there were arab lads in there who were routinely attacked and raped and that he saw or heard them near on every night. I've always assumed a lot of Michael's work was influenced by those 4 months.

>Love
Arthur Lee was sentenced to 12 years in prison for negligent discharge of a firearm. This was because of California's three-strike laws meaning he had to serve prison time for his third offence after two previous charges for assault and drugs.

On a side note, Bobby Beausoleil who is mentioned in the murder section was an early member of Love when they were still The Grass Roots
>Paul McCartney
In 1980 during a Wings tour in Japan, police found 200g of cannabis in McCartney's luggage. He spent 10 days in jail and was deported..

You're an idiot. The whole reason it's popular is because it sounds completely different then mainstream music of the time.

I was referring to the music within the confines of the genre.

Not even counting the homemade ones, I have hundreds of cassettes, maybe thousands. Almost all of them are from the era when cassettes were the only portable music medium, but I got most of them super cheap in the late '90s and early to mid '00s when nobody cared about cassettes due to CDs and mp3s. Cassettes were so cheap in music store used bins that as someone who usually downloaded albums on soulseek and only bought my very favorites on CD, I would buy huge amounts of cassettes of all these albums ranging from classics I was well aware of, to shadowy albums with cool cover art that I'd only vaguely heard about but seemed promising, to some stuff I had no idea what it was. My greatest "haul" ever, at least with regard to my then-preferred alternative music tastes, was buying cassettes of Spirit of Eden, Dubnobasswithmyheadman and Chapterhouse's pretty rare Whirlpool (three albums I had not heard yet, had barely even heard about, and was blown away by in each case) for a combined 50 cents or something, AND I got a vinyl of REM's Chronic Town EP (my fav release of theirs actually, and I believe quite rare) for $10-15 or something.

I'm not even Canadian and I even have a Tragically Hip cassette in my collection just because any band I'd vaguely heard of, if I liked the cover art, album title and/or song title, I figured a cassette would be an ideal way to try it out, saving me the time of having to download. (Tragically Hip mostly have horrible cover art and Road Apples is not much of an exception but it wasn't offensively awful and I liked the album title and song titles.) I had a walkman and it fit in my pocket, and didn't yet have an ipod so it was convenient, plus my car only played cassettes at the time too.

Later on I switched to ipod and iphone for portable listening and my cassettes are not in regular use anymore, but I did start following some musicians who were doing cassette only releases, so I got a few of those.

And my red cassette of Art Angels!
