Reg Traviss: Rape claim was lowest I've been

Dec 16 2012, 5:26am CST | by

Reg Traviss says being accused of rape made him feel "lower" than when Amy Winehouse died.

The 35-year-old director - who was engaged to the singer at the time of her death in 2011 - was acquitted of two charges this week, and was horrified when he first learned of the claims against him.

He said: "When Amy died I thought I couldn't reach a lower ebb.

"I'm reluctant to say it, but when this came up I don't think I ever have, or ever will, feel so low."

Reg believes authorities did not question his innocence throughout the legal process, and thinks the allegation was pursued because of his high-profile status.

He told The Sun newspaper: " I don't want to slag off the police -- they have a job to do and were all decent fellas -- but I do wonder about political pressures and meeting targets.

"On their report I was described as 'the famous film director and partner of the late Amy Winehouse'. It does make you wonder if I was a big scalp.

"The problem is, the system is like a runaway train. Once the wheels are in motion, there is no stopping it."

The woman who accused Reg of attacking her following a night out on December 30 2011 was an old friend and the filmmaker insists he now feels "blank" towards her.

He said: "The woman who gave evidence wasn't the woman I knew. She was aggressive and angry and completely different to the person I thought I knew.

"How do I feel about her now? I have no emotions towards her at all. I am blank."

First Listen: Sean Rowe, 'Madman'

Aug 31 2014 10:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Sean Rowe has been playing a haunted cover of Bruce Springsteen's "The River" on tour this year, usually using only his battered Takamine acoustic guitar, a harmonica and his well-deep, Old Testament baritone voice. It might give an impression — abetted by his impressive beard — that Rowe, a small-town upstate New Yorker, is some Dust Bowl folkie throwback. But his albums paint a richer picture. Magic, ...

Aug 30 2014 5:48pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

The new book The History of Rock N Roll in Ten Songs is missing everything you would expect. No Rolling Stones or Beatles. No Jimi Hendrix performances or remembrances of Woodstock. In place of the iconic, musicologist Greil Marcus analyzes 10 songs that he says tell the wild story of one of America's greatest gifts to the world. No. 1 is "Shake Some Action" by the The Flamin' Groovies — which Marcus calls "a name so stupid, it's embarrassing to say out lo ...
