    Default "Willful torture, abuse and cruelly beating a child..."

    On March 24th, Alabama Shakes drummer, Steven Johnson was arrested with charges of child abuse (willful torture, abuse and cruelly beating or otherwise willfully maltreating a child). News outlets report he was taken into custody and bond set at $21,500. This same time last year, he pleaded guilty to violating a domestic violence protection order filed by his ex-wife. She accused him of threatening behavior, harassment, stalking and choking her in 2018. He spent a year in jail for that offense.

    Man, I wish he wasn't a drummer. It gives the drumming community a bad name.

    Do you see that look on his face, that's the "I'm a bada$$" look. It works on people right up until you get in their face and tell them they are a "candya$$ punk" and watch them do absolutely nothing. The sad part is that they won't fight anyone who gets in their face but they will go home and beat their wife/GF, kid, or dog.

    This one scumbag won't give drummers a bad name. The proportion of violent criminals in the drumming community is no higher than that of the general population, and most people will understand that. That being said, if these allegations are true, I hope he gets every punishment he deserves.

    "Man, I wish he wasn't a drummer. It gives the drumming community a bad name"

    So did the ape from 2001 so I wouldn't let this guy bother me.

    "You're right, I just hate it when it enters our domain. It feels sacred to me"

    A novena and the stations should pretty much cleanse the site.

    Make no mistake, he looks like someone I would steer clear, keep a wary eye on, and be prepared to do literal battle with at the drop of the proverbial hat. And I pride myself on being an exceptional judge of character. I was just sorta chiming in for due process... something that's getting pretty short shrift these days.
