Had no idea about the murder for hire shit. Fucking crazy. Looking into it I came across his public apology after serving his time and probation (only 3 years inside) and he came across as genuine and heartfelt. Idk that I'd support the band getting back together though. That'd be a tough one.
Yeah the whole ordeal is fuckin insane man.
Did you watch that video that had the entire band? It's like 20-30 minutes long, I believe it's on their YouTube page.
The video covers each band member who describes the previous state of their relationship with Tim, its degradation, his imprisonment and their reconciliation. Each of them were drawn nearly to tears describing how this event impacted their lives.
Listening to them all describe it, you immediately see that the reunion started as soon as Tim got out of prison. None of them wanted anything to do with him especially Nick, but over time they began to repair their friendships and put the pieces back together.
When it all first went down, Tim appeared to not give a flying fuck, basically doing everything but accepting fault for it and continue to spiral. I guess this started to change after a couple of years according to the band.
In that video he looks like he genuinely feels bad and wants to make shit right. I mean you never really know what somebody is thinking. He could be a really good actor. But based on what the members said, he's not. By the time all of that shit happened he was essentially an unbearable narcissistic asshole.
I guess we will see what happens after this first string of success following their comeback.
