Update on Kevin and His Kevipod Site

I emailed Kevin directly yesterday after I found out that his new Kevipod blog and his Myspace page was deleted. I received a response back from Kevin, and this is what the email stated:

Hey Quinton,

Yeah, i was the one who deleted my new URL and Myspace site. I don't want to give really any details i just will say that something "serious" happened to me yesterday. For that reason, i deleted all the sites related to "Kevipod". I'm afraid i won't be able to comeback to the blog business for REAL REAL long time.

I'm currently working on sending emails to all my visitors to tell them the exact thing i'm telling you now.


Here is the response back that I sent:

Hey Kev. Thanks for the reply. I'm so sorry to hear that. :-( I can understand why you would delete the sites since something serious happened. I'm guessing it's because of the record labels. I wish they would just leave you alone. They can't seem to grasp the fact that you were promoting artist, not trying to do anything illegal. I know for myself (and countless others) that your blog, from time to time, exposed me to new artists that I would have never known about.

I secured your kevgossip blogspot after all the craziness went down because I didn't want anyone taking it away from you. I made a post about what happened to keep your long time visitors informed since we know that the purpose of the kevgossip site was a place to keep informed in the event your music blog was ever deleted.

I will update that blogspot to let visitors know what's going on. I hope that you will be back to blogging someday. You have thousands of people who respected and loved what you did. I hope this situation you are in passes, and that everything will be alright. Keep in touch.


This will be the last post on this blog until (hopefully) Kevin makes his return to blogging. I will leave Kev's contact information since I've had a couple of people to ask me. If you do contact him, PLEASE don't try to hound him and find out the serious situation. We all need to just send him positivity and support in this moment of time. Thank you.

Contact Kevin:

Kevipod's Music Blog Shut Down. New Kevipod Site Now Up.

This came as a big shock to me as I'm sure it did to thousands of music lovers who frequented Kevipod's site. "RUMOR" has it that Kevin's site was apparently shut down sometime last night after Kevin posted a leak of Mariah Cary's upcoming single, "Touch My Body." Mariah's label received information on the leak. The rest, is what you call history. :-( Blogspot deleted Kevipodmusic. This wasn't Kevin's first warning, as he had amassed multiple warnings as his music blog continued to reach new heights in popularity.

Shorty after Kevin's music blog was deleted by Blogspot, some user registered the newly available URL into their account. So (as of this instance) if you visit, it is NOT Kevin who is in control of it. Kevin has created a new blog, but it's status at this moment is in limbo. Kevin is sadden by the loss of kevipodmusic, and upset at the user who has claimed the URL.

Personally, I hope that Kevin doesn't give up on blogging, as I have enjoyed his blog postings for over a couple of years now. The original intent of this blogspot (as some of Kevipodmusic fans may already know) was to be used as a place to keep in touch/updated if for some reason Kevin's blog was ever shut down. For now, this blog will be used for one purpose; to redirect viewers and fans to Kevin's new blogspot:

Be sure to say Quinton sent ya. :-)
