I am no fan of Bam but this lady is a crack-head that terrorizes the whole town! She extorts money from businesses too!

Probably didn't do any damage - it's not as though he actually has a brain to injure.

I live right outside West Chester and am pretty sure that it was Jen Rivell his ex. She has already been charged in the past for breaking and entering at castle bam. She is crazy! sucks for bam

He owns the Note, the Lemonheads are going to be there next saturday lol I'll be there... its a decent place. Last time I was there (Evolv show) he was there, my friend says he's never there? but oh well.

and I thought him and Jenn were friendly these days?

Grace, who is it? I'm intrigued.

Its not his ex. This is a middle-aged lady that lives right behind the bar. I don't wanna get sued so I won't say her name but it starts with an L. She has attacked other people walking down the alley there. Bam is only at the Note to get ****-faced. He doesn't care about it. The other owner is never there either. The place is so disorganized. I hate going there.

So is he okay, or what, TMZ? Way to leave us hanging! You can't get a hold of his rep? I really hope all's well. The fact his rep or family haven't released a statement has me worried for the poor guy. On Viva La Bam, he could get a little obnoxious. Every other thing he's been in he's seems like a good guy and let's not forget that Phil and Ape would be devastated if something were to happen to him.

What a c*nt and coward (to get someone from behind). I hope he's ok, he is tough as nails.

ok, i think i know who you're talking about. I only go to the Note for bands that I care about. McReady Rock, Evolv, the Lemonheads (the courage pills are opening, they're decent) but generally, i stay out of wc. i don't live in town anymore, I've grown up and go to phoenixville lol
I'm going to Spence next week for the first time, as well. lol

I love how people are speculating that its Jenn. I think thats kinda horrible. I mean, shes been out of the picture for years.
I hate that I live here, and that this is what we're known for (omg i also watched that video someone posted LOLOLOLOL @ the comment about Jimmy Johns burning down. I mean, its sad, but I was there when it happened. Took pics, and theres a fb group about remembering jimmy johns. I posted my pics.)
I try not to pay attention to Bam because whenever I see him he acts like I'm should be so excited to see him LOL

I don't want to leave identifying information about myself on here though. i just love that the daily local cited TMZ.

I'll be at the note on saturday, but only for my friends. I'm friends with Evan, and the opening act. but I don't know how long I'll stick around there. The staff is pretty nice, and the food was okay (I don't eat chicken, but my friends were raving about the jerk chicken)
