B/c the media didn't want us to know. They want the money. And I think the band wanted the money too. The way to get money is to keep mouths slammed shut and pocket books open. The members didn't stick by his side b/c they didn't totally understand what Stapp was going through and were probly impatient to want to get to where they wanted in life. Confusing anymore? Grasp how cold life can be?
