Exactly! The other three have been quiet during all of this as far as I'm aware. Any/all of them could have announced the death of the band, or that they kicked Jesse out, or that they all decided to move on and start a new project together (or retire from music altogether). They didn't.
Also, I can't listen to BN at this point, knowing what we know now. Some of his lyrics make my skin crawl now, and I really can't in good conscience continue to support this band. My wife works with adolescents who are by and large victims of sexual assault/abuse, and what Jesse Lacey has been accused of is far more heinous than any BN apologist realizes. The dude should be in prison, but I guess I can settle for knowing that his legacy is completely trashed. I'm actually trying to sell off all my BN vinyl and donate the proceeds to a non-profit that helps victims of sexual assault/human trafficking.
Side story: A now-former friend of mine recently got divorced from his wife (who is very good friends with my wife). The core reason is that he'd cheated on his wife numerous times throughout the course of their marriage. But what came out after that, was that he'd also harassed countless women in the Seattle punk scene and beyond, both online and in person. My wife was one of his many harassment victims, but at the time she and I just shrugged it off as drunken stupidity and thought it was an isolated thing, so we kept it to ourselves. Turns out, that's what everyone else did too. With the information now public, he has been cut off by just about everyone involved in the scene locally and has been blackballed from playing any notable "punk" venue in the US and several places abroad (he's had a couple of mildly successful bands in the past).
I feel ashamed for not saying anything sooner and I feel foolish for not seeing this shithead for who he really was. But once it came out that his behavior was more widespread than we could ever have known, I was quick to write him off and publicly warn others about his predatory behavior. I'd feel sympathy for the other members of BN if they gave some indication as to how they felt about this situation, but I suspect that they knew about Jesse's predatory behavior and chose not to say anything publicly, which is appalling. Either way, they've been a little too quiet about the whole thing for my comfort.
But to get things back on topic, yeah, fuck Jason Tate! That dude sucks, and changing the website to chorus.fm officially killed my interest in the site (along with a ton of other people, if you look at their traffic numbers before/after the changeover).
