    So Jon has been in jail for over a month now, Iced Earth has been (supposedly) dropped from their label, and Hansi leaving Demons and Wizards (and also dropped from their label), we get this bombshell today.

    I'm not surprised about Stu leaving. A day or so after the insurrection happened, Stu scrubbed all mentions of Iced Earth from his social media.

    Welp. Bye bye.

    Jon is probably better off going to prison at this point. It's not like he'll be working in really any capacity, musically or otherwise, after this.

    Good riddance.

    Don’t underestimate people. He absolutely will find a very specific niche following whenever he gets out. And his albums will go triple myrrh.

    I'd leave too. You can bet the gub'ment is gonna run extensive checks on the idiots who were involved in the riot. That means knowing Jon and being close to him might get you looked into as well. I haven't even done anything but I sure as fuck wouldn't want that kind of attention. I'd forget I ever knew him, blocked him on everything and pretend knowing him never happened

    ^Plus, if the "boss" is going on a little vacation and not going to pay you, there's literally no point sticking around, either.

    Jon & Iced Earth are radioactive right now and won't be making any new money for these guys any time soon, no surprise everyone chose to cut and run regardless of how they feel about things. Most sensible thing to do.

    Thought this would be worth a bump. Jon pleads guilty of two counts: "obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress; and trespassing on restricted grounds of the Capitol while armed with a deadly or dangerous weapon." A combined max sentence of 30 years is capable.

    ...I doubt he'll get the max 30 years, but unless (by some miracle for him) he's only let go on probation, Iced Earth is gonna be gone for awhile.

    Just did a bit more reading. He's also possibly going to go into witness protection in order to sing like a canary.

    Good thig they didn't remove the :ban: smiley

    Also apparently the news was updated. They agree to a 4 - 5 year sentence. The judge just needs to approve it. Dude is getting off EXTREMELY fucking light all things considered.

    such a loser. Stands up for his (false) beliefs then immediately denounces it and rats everyone else. I remember him in interviews always talking about integrity and all that crap...
