    I've been a listener of Art since the 90's. I don't believe 90's of the crap but I've always enjoyed listening and thinking mmmm what if? That being said Art is an eccentric dude, fucker seems to attract drama. I just have a hunch that this a load of bull shit.

    In honor of Art Bell

    "Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you're always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away"

    Art Bell No Longer Broadcasting; Retires Under Duress
    Posted on December 11, 2015 by Steve Barton

    For the last several weeks 70-year-old radio legend Art Bell has been shot at, twice, by some crazy person who’s bound and determined to force Bell to stop doing his show. The last incident was just a few days ago; Bell was on his way to his studio when shots rang out. Bell was forced to lie in the dirt on his belly until the police showed up.

    For several nights over the last few weeks, his frightened family members have been forced to sleep on the floor instead of in their beds as a means to ensure their safety, which is nothing short of horrible. Bell issued the following statement over on his website, ArtBell.com:

    “I am sorry to have to announce this but I will not be on Tonight or any other night, yes I am going to hang it up. Whoever this crazy person is, they are not stopping and it has come to the point that we as a Family do not feel it is worth the risk. While I think the person or persons are after me, my Wife and now my Daughter are really scared, the other night after the latest incident my Daughter was off in the corner of her bed scared to death as the Police cars came screaming up. I will not put my Family through this. As you all know I dearly love what I do but not at the expense of never ending Terrorism. I want to thank those of you who have shown so much support and it has been my joy, short as it has been to have cracked that Mic open for a last time. This was a Family decision. The girls stuck with me and still would but if one of them were harmed because of what I love doing my life would be over.”

    This is news that is as awful as it is sad. To think we live in a world in which a 70-year-old man who is just simply doing what he loves and now has been prevented from doing so by some crazy asshole is sickening. We do not blame Art at all; family and safety must comes first. We wish Bell well and hope that maybe… just maybe… this can be resolved and we will once again… take the ride….

    As for the crazy asshole… Do your little victory dance… just know that karma is a bitch. A scathing, merciless, fire and brimstone bitch, and when she catches up with you… well… it will be a wonderful day.

    Wasn't this his second chance after quitting Sirius after similar circumstances? I think he got a little to high on his own supply of paranoia and conspiracy. And doesn't he live in the Philippines? That sounds like an average Thursday there.

    I can't believe he made it this long. He falls apart at the drop of a hat. The Dark Matters network was promoting the shit out of him, they must be pissed.

    Still a frog so I'm guessing that marrying the Filipina teenager didn't turn him into a prince...:dontknow:

    No he's been back in Nevada for years.
    I drive past his house fom time to time.
    At the end of his road is a Jeep trail I use.
    There would be nowhere for a shooter to hide as the desert near his house is all low scrub.
    Not buying it

    or course not- it's an Art Bell story...
    Let me tell you the one about his homosexual teenage son being kidnapped by a Nye County school teacher who fell in lust with him.
    Chained him in bondage drag & took him to California where he was apprehended.
    Art later sued the county of Nye for MILLIONS and won the lawsuit.
    What a pimp daddy!

    do you remember the story about Art's days in Sacramento (not Sacramento -where was it in California?) as a pimp for Filipinas who Ramona placed under contract back in Manila?
    Art was actually arrested for that.
    Wish I still had the link. Can't find it.

    as far as we know

    There used to be 2 or 3 anti-Art sites that posted all this stuff.
    Art tried to sue but was struck down by the Lord.
    He then moved to the Philippines where he became a big-time pimp daddy specializing in girly boys and teenage girls.

    He really should fear for his life.
