No Devotion Members Faced Bigger Problems In Lostprophets
That was followed by an attack on Rickly in a Hamburg street during which he was robbed and poisoned, leading to the cancellation of a show and a night in hospital.
No Devotion were formed form the ashes of Lostprophets after that band's frontman Ian Watkins was revealed to have committed a string of horrifying sexual offences against children and was jailed for 29 years. Richardson says the abuse directed at No Devotion for their links to Shkreli pales into insignificance in comparison.
He tells Alternative Press: "Trust me, I've seen worse, I've had worse said of me. I have a family and kids and I've been called everything. I don't feel betrayed by Geoff at all. It's just bad luck. Really bad luck. I don't think Geoff didn't dig hard enough on this guy, I don't think he's to blame at all. Shkreli seemed like he just wanted to put his money out there." Read more here.
