Barenaked Lady Steven Page busted for drug possession

And just like that, another piece of my innocence has died.

Steven Page, portly and somewhat goofy lead singer of the Barenaked Ladies, has been busted for drug possession in Fayetteville, NY. He was charged on July 11, and released on bail. The drug? Good ol' fashioned cocaine. Page's manager won't comment on the charges, but is "confident Page will be cleared". Not sure if he's heard or not, but the USA is a little sticky when it comes to foreigners doing drugs on their soil. You know, that whole "War on Drugs" thing.

Sidebar: man, the USA sure loves having Wars on Something. What's up with that?

Anyways, the cognitive dissonance here is pretty high. BNL always seemed like a goofy, fun-loving band with a youthful outlook. Now, it appears that goofiness may, in fact, be due to actual goofballs.

Upsetting.
