Brides Of Destruction GBG frontman London LeGrand getting deported from Sweden to USA
Sad news for Brides Of Destruction GBG fans as their frontman London LeGrand is apparently getting deported from Sweden to the United States of America after sitting in jail for sometime in Sweden. A GoFundMe fundraising campaign has apparently been started by Nickell Starr to assist LeGrand for once he gets back on US soil.
The following messages were posted on Brides Of Destruction GBG‘s Facebook page leading up to the GoFundMe campaign:
“Brides Of Destruction GBG frontman and singer London LeGrand got detained today by swedish police in Gothenburg. It is unknown why LeGrand got detained. The other band members says in a statement that they have spoken to LeGrand and that everything is under control. They will come back with further information later on. The recording scheduled for next week will continue as planned. The US embassy is engaged in the matter.”
“This is getting a little frustrating or actually it fucking sucks big time? LL is still locked up. To the one who sold us out: Thank you very much! You really slowed us down. The recording is on hold and upcoming shows that we were supposed to do later on this summer are cancelled. And LL being arrested is not drug related just to be clear on that. Its about us, not doing our homework.
Well keep you updated/ BOD (GBG)”
The GoFundMe fundraising campaign for LeGrand is titled “DEPORTED….LIKE A ROCKSTAR!!! HELP” and its “Story” is outlined as follows:
“Ok, this is the deal folks. I’m currently living in Sweden and about to be deported to the United States. Recently got arrested for being in Sweden for 5 years, was supposed to only stay 6 months. This has all happened so fast. I was caught completely off gaurd. I was just about to go into the studio with my band to lay down some tracks for the next BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION GBG release after we played several successful shows here in Sweden. I am far from prepared to go anywhere at this time but the law is forcing me. Where ever I go to in the States, I will be homeless, no cash, no job. It will be just me and my back pack! So what I thought I would do maybe is I’ll just bounce around the States! Meet some cool people, fans, really ANYBODY that would like company until it’s time for me to roll. This could be alot of fun! So does anyone want a cat, me London LeGrand, for a houseguest?? All 50 states will be my/the cats yard! I will be a roamer, a rock n roll gypsy warrior, just like on tour except without the comforts of a deluxe bus. I will be hitch-hiking or utilizing any other ways of travel that become available to me. So all my FREAKS, HIPPIES, GYPSIES, ROCKERS, and PUNKS of the world AND to FREE SPIRITS everywhere, It is time for us to get to know each other and become friends!! Please let me know who you are! I will soon be running away just like I first did at 17 years old to chase my Rock n Roll dream and I need to find some like companions!! Fuck em’ All,
Alright now friends, family, fellow musicians, freaks, and free-spirits, like London said, this all came about quickly.. He is not prepared to make the transition but if he doesn’t they will throw him in prison! RIGHT NOW LONDON NEEDS YOUR HELP!!. This is an investment into keeping him going so he can focus on the great music he has been a part of with so many bands under his belt. ADDICTION FOR DESTRUCTION, GEORGE LYNCH’S SOULS OF WEI PROJECT, BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION featuring NIKKI SIXX and TRACII GUNS, and ROCKSTARS ON MARS!! Donations will be used for London‘s immediate and urgent needs including new eye glasses (which he desperately needs!!), travel expenses, food etc. If your interested in having London come to you in your hometown and stay awhile please drop a note along with your donation. Every dollar counts so anything you can donate will be put to good use. London is one of the most down to earth, cool, kind, non jugemental, giving, people especially Rockstars that I have ever known. I’ve never seen him not offer his help to someone in need. It’s time we show him the same.
Thank you, NS
