Some concerning news on Roy Harper. Note: innocent until proven guilty. Let's hope there are no more prog musicians following allegations against Rolf Harris also. The latter contributing on Kate Bush albums.

He's one of my favorite prog folk artists.....and I hope it isn't true, but sadly I'm betting many musicians are probably guilty of sex with minors (especially groupies) over the last 40 or 50 years. One wonders why this woman, who would be in her early 50's at this point, waited 40 years to bring charges.

@dr wu23: I guess it's psycholgical. Sometimes the victim is too ashamed and assumes it was their fault. It's probably why a lot of them don't decide to pursue legal action until years later. It's sad.
 
Assuming the allegations are true, what's wrong with these people? What goes on in their head that makes them think "Being a rock star" = "Pursuing underage girls is okay"?
