I started a band. I need a guitar. I created a kick starter. Is that how rock and roll is now-a-days? This shit is so stupid!
PS Lets keep in mind, this guys is telling everyone how they MADE this possible but yet the kickstarter hasn't ended so he hasn't seen any money yet... but they have already been recording and making songs? That doesn't make sense. So you had the funds but are making other people pay you back for your art; good job!
i don't care at all about artists using kickstarter... they can work for whoever they want to make money, in my opinion. but that being said, i will defend this guy...
recording a solo record for someone like him (with equipment already and access to musicians and producers) would be easy enough to finance on a credit card once you know that your kickstarter is funded and you WILL receive the money for sure by a certain date. i am sure that most of the money is not going to the recording but to pay for all off the reproduction, manufacturing, shipping, etc of the physical rewards as well as everyone who he is paying to help him with the release.
