“Uh, I guess this is where I introduce myself? I’m Roy Harper. Yeah, THAT Roy Harper. King of the Bad Decisions, use me as a bad example, Roy fucking Harper. Don’t worry, I can take it. Not like I don’t know what they say me behind my back. Shit, half of it’s practically true anyway, and the other half is probably only slightly exaggerated. But it’s cool. As I said, I can take it. I ain’t gonna be that guy that blames the crowd he was with or any weak shit like that. It was me. I did those things. Here I fucking am. Deal with it. Or don’t, I honestly don’t care either way anymore. I’m trying to get my life back on track, getting back into my music – I was the drummer for Great Frog before… Well, yeah – and maybe, just maybe, getting my shit together enough to graduate next year without crashing and burning. If I’m lucky.”

“The changes exhibited in Roy’s behaviour since returning to us are, quite frankly, nothing short of a miracle in some respects. Now more than ever I see the promising student that joined us two years ago, and not the delinquent junkie that so often graced my office. His stint at the Hollbrook Rehabilitation Clinic, a stay made possible by the generosity of the Queen Foundation, has provided him with the necessary tools to hopefully control not only his addiction, but also his volatile temper and misguided aggression. I hold the belief that they will also go some way in alleviating the pain he suffered following the death of his father in freshman year, pain that no doubt placed him on the downward spiral that lead to his addiction in the first place. Now if only we could get a handle on his inherent need to rebel against authority, then perhaps we might just be able to salvage this one yet.”
