So we're supposed to ignore the fact that he's a rapist, predator creep just because he wrote some good music? No thanks...

I myself can't look past that. It's different when you have someone close to you that was a victim of rape.  So yeah, this hits real hard.

I'm sorry if what I said didn't come out the right way. Ugh, I'm trying to come up with the right words to say what I meant, but I really don't know! It's just a horrible situation that we're in right now!

Should we consider moving this to the sandbox? He maybe an associate of Brian's but I don't like the idea of it being linked to The Beach Boys/Brian discussion. If that makes sense.

Reading this account, (much of the attack on video), is stomach turning and disgusting! He should be thrown in prison for the maximum allowable penalty!

My questions are when did Brian's camp know about this and why wasn't he immediately fired? Anybody know how many shows he played after his arrest?

They were possibly working to the principle of "innocent until proven guilty". Which to my mind was absolutely the way to go.

I'd guess they knew of the case and the impending trial but might not have known the detail of the prosecution's evidence. If the suggestion that this is why Billy was waiting for a call proves correct, then they obviously planned for this possible outcome. Again, correct procedure to my mind: why should Scott's crime wreck the tour? The fans come first in this aspect of the story.

This is one terrible blow for all concerned. I hope it doesn't spoil people's enjoyment of the music because in the end that's what it's all about and what brings us here.

Echoes of what has happened before in BBs world, to even greater notoriety, with Manson and Cease to Exist. I can appreciate that tune without thinking about any of the connotations.

I hope we and everyone actually concerned with the case can move forward. I'll miss Scotty's contribution to Brian's music and the live experience, but it's right that he departs the scene now. This kind of crime is unforgiveable. I hope the poor victim has found some way forward from this.

Agree that this should be Sandboxed.

I wonder if he's done this before.

Is that an off the cuff statement or does something suggest he might have? I'd rather not even consider it. That's for the authorities.

Disagree on the sandbox. This affects Brian and his band in multiple areas, and Scott was a valued collaborator (and co-Golden Globe nominee). It happened on a BW tour.

This is the very definition of on topic.

I'm not disappointed. I'm thankful that a violent criminal has been served some justice. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Onward and upward; there are plenty of great musicians to replace him in Brian's group.

Yeah I agree, especially considering the Stamos dui thread was allowed to stay in this section.

That is true, so for now it stays.  Wish it wasnt, though.

I can't believe this happened. I am shocked. Scott took this poor woman somewhere quiet.

I see what you did there. I laughed too much.

Regardless, this is terrible. I would say I hope the victim gets their compensation, but you can't compensate for a horrific experience.

I haven't even read the article, I guess I really don't need to know, but it is shocking and disappointing. I haven't exactly been enamored of Brian's collaborators in recent years, but Scott was one guy I respected. Watching him in the TLOS video, I thought he came across as a guy who really tried to bring the best out of Brian, a guy that really cared about the man. True, everyone has a dark side...but ...well, I just don't know what to say. Get the guy some heavy duty counseling, make sure he understands "this is NOT acceptable!"

Apparently there is still a lot of legal stuff going on with regard to this case particularly with regards to Scott's defence so I would suggest that discussion ceases on here about the case, at least until the 14th June when the court reconvenes.

He's been found guilty by a jury. Full stop.

Scott Bennett is a convicted rapist. That is now a fact.

The court will reconvene to formally sentence him, not to weigh in further on his responsibility.
