Ha, I'll be honest, I didn't plan that, but thanks.
And as for the article, I think it was great. From havin met Bryan, he is very humble and doesn't like to be in the spotlight when off camera. Chris knew what the interview would be like, and went ahead and did it anyway. Yeah, Bryan's questions can get awkward and repetitive, but it gives bands a break from the stresses of touring. If NSN didn't want to do it, they could have easily said no. Other bands have. And when Bryan asked one of the members music questions, he blew him off with short answers.
I agree. Both sides were a bit rude.
i don't even know why i care about this but that Op-Ed thing was extremely one sided
"we're not going to take sides"
"but from a journalistic perspective heres why i think chris was right"
Yea, after reading, I think it reads that way, but I won't cover my ass by editing it. It's published, it's done. I really think that NSN should have declined the interview or just asked it to end. What they did was very rude and discourteous. At the same time, Bryan should have just scrapped the interview, publishing it makes him no better than Christofer Drew.
Everyone has bad interviews sometimes, it's better to learn or try to save the interview though, rather than "finishing it" with a few shots of you crying over it. That isn't anyway to go about it. Sometimes you have to deal with dicks like Drew, but in cases like that, you move on to the next interview and keep doing your thing, maybe a bit different next time.
In short, the video shouldn't have been posted, Chris should have told him no, and we could continue just disliking them for their music or interview questions, not for ridiculous dramatic reasons.
