The Scoop: Aaron Jerome, vocalist for pop rock outfit What Happened In Vegas, has announced that he is entering a mental institution following he and his band getting caught using fake passes on the Vans Warped Tour this year. You can check out what he had to say about his current situation below.
Gotta get my mind right.
Rebuilding my life.
Taking steps is easy.
Standing still is hard.
I love you all for the constant support & encouragement throughout the years
Don’t worry, I’ll be back.
The Spin: Yes, what they did was undoubtedly and unarguably wrong. Yes, their actions have now made it just that much harder for parking lot bands at the Vans Warped Tour. And yes, by doing these stories on them we’re giving them the publicity they’re yearning unashamedly for. Nonetheless, we here at MEB hope Jerome’s time in the mental institution becomes a visceral milestone on his road to recovery. We also hope that despite the band’s deplorable excuse for an apology, that they have truly learned from their mistakes. Remember kids, honesty really is the most preeminent policy.
