A family friend was a band member in the mid 80's and I had friends who were in the band in the 90's when I was a student. I went to some of their parties. I worked with some of them too. That's a crazy bunch right there and apparently always has been. Jeez, there's a guy on 247 claiming to have been in the band in the 1950's who talks about how crazy it was back then too.
As more details come out, I wouldn't be surprised to see a push to get him rehired. This is political correctness (or call it hypersensitivity if you prefer) run amok.
