Ian Watkins' Lostprophets Bandmates Shocked By His Child Sex Crimes
They say they're angry that he lied to them when accusations first surfaced, they're horrified over what he did to his victims, family and friends - and they're heartbroken that they can never take pride in the band's achievements over 15 years.
Watkins began serving his sentence last year after being found guilty of a string of serious sexual offences against children. He'd denied his guilt until late in the legal proceedings.
Lewis and Gaze have spoken for the first time since appealing for unknown victims to come forward ahead of his trial. Lewis, who'd known Watkins since the pair were five years old, tells the Sunday Times: "I've thought about it long and hard - and I have no interest in ever speaking to him again.
"I feel incredibly bad for his mother and his whole family, and the stigma they have to endure. But I have no interest in questioning him about it. Never.
"I tried reading the judge's report - I couldn't finish it. I find it utterly unbelievable that he was capable of doing these things. Obviously he did, but I don't understand it." A lot more.
