A couple of years ago, this site somehow became the de facto clearinghouse for the haps and mishaps of former Static-X guitarist Tripp Eisen. It so happened I like Static-X and it was sorta jarring to find that the guiatrist at the time was not only buggering not one, but two 14-year-olds in two different states, but doing so while pretending to be someone pretending to be him. Yeah, there’s a real mindfuck for ya.
Anyway, after I posted a series of articles on the topic – primarily because the train wreck that was Tripp Eisen was such a, well, train wreck – he was finally put behind bars and then kinda disappeared off everyone’s radar, including mine. Though, even today, people still flock to this blog trying to find out what happened to this guy.
Fortunately, Mugshot roundup finally gives us an update. Oh, goody!
Former STATIC-X and DOPE guitarist TRIPP EISEN has been sent back to jail after reportedly violating his parole conditions. The rocker was released from a California state prison in April 2007 after serving time for allegedly meeting and sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in 2005.
But Eisen is now back behind bars after an unknown parole violation and is not scheduled to be released until 19 October 2009.
The scheduled release date has come and gone, so who knows where he is now, whether he’s gone back to music or what he’s doing these days. One thing’s for sure though: jail wasn’t kind to him, and his latest mugshot
indicates he might not be the teen fangirl’s catch anymore that he apparently once was.
