Suicide Concert Declared Illegal

    If anyone has started this thread elsewhere, I apologize in advance, but I didn't see any headlines that looked like they were discussing this horrible topic.

    A band in Tampa noted for outrageuos behavior on stage such as slicing live rats in a blender have announced their latest concert will feature a suicide onstage.

    The original venue canceled, so the band says they will conduct this horrific act at an undisclosed location and broadcast the act on their web site.

    Legal authorities in Florida have stated that such an act is illegal and any participants (including the audience?) will be prosecuted.

    I find this entire sordid event to be about the most debased activity a band could ever attempt. Also, it smacks of a baldfaced attempt at publicity and has nothing to do with music. What are your thoughts?

    I'm going to try to find a web site that has more information on what has transpired so far and mor einfo about the band...if you want to call them a band.

    There is a post about it in the lounge.

    But the band is still saying they are going to do it.


    And embellisher said pretty much what I think about this.

    no one can ever top it.

    That's what scares me about this. Some stupid band, maybe even this one will try to top it...maybe such as blowing up the entire band on stage.

    Editorializing further, I find it highly objectionable that this band and its leader cloak a tasteless publicity stunt under the spurious guise of doing something socially significant.

    If desperate soul wants to kill himself, why do it on stage at a rock concert?

    That is the lead singer... He want's to make assisted suicides legal... Crazy shiat...
     
  8. Yeah get me tickets! :rolleyes:

    hmmm

    Merls
     
  9. Occording to the website, it already happened...
     

  10. link?



    I find this whole ordeal disgusting. From what I read from an earlier article, the vocalist actually tryed talking this guy out of killing himself in general, but apparently was "won over"


    It's all sick.

    Probably what "won over" the singer was the notion that his band will now be nationally famous (or infamous). To me, however, the guise of doing something to further assisted suicide or euthanasia by actually showing such an event on a web site or on a concert stage is just a heinous attempt to garner publicity.

    I am hoping this dispicable "concert" was all an act or some sort of sleight-of-hand. I also hope that slaughter of rats in blenders also is sleight-of-hand. In either case, the band members belong in jail. They are sociopaths, not musicians.
     
  12. they probably suck...and thats why they wanna do it,to be known as the band that held a "suicide convention"

    How weak:rolleyes:


    I would like to see the suicide though...Did they say how he would do it?

    Horrible band, and Billy(the meglomaniac of the band) is a strange, annoying person. Their last bassist, Kyle, is probably one of the best bassists I have ever seen, what a waste of talent. The bassist before him actually stole one of my basses, long story. Billy is the son of a very prominent real estate mogul here in St. Pete and he seems to be a complete jackass. This is just another one of their attempts at fame. Since their music is so awful and they can't get signed through talent, they must assume this will do the trick. Whatever...

    :rolleyes:
     
  17. I dunno...I would just like to see the audience's reaction and stuff,how it all went down.

    I find it interesting,in a dark way...

    You are one of the people that give my generation it's lovely reputation :( :bawl:
     
  19. The paper called it suicide
    A bullet from a forty-five
    Nobody cared and nobody cried
    Don't that make you feel sad?

    Peter Brent combed his hair
    And sent for the police
    Policeman came, took Peter's name
    God, may he rest in peace

    No one saw the note beside the body
    No one knew the problems
    But my God
    Suicide

    The body remains unidentified
    Forgotten in a file
    Like the letter that was blown aside
    Don't that make you want to smile?

    No one was really satisfied
    About number eighty-one
    The autopsy proved that Peter lied
    But they never could find the gun

    No one saw the note beside the body
    No one knew the problems
    But my God
    Suicide
