Well I see nothing wrong with promoting bands as long as they stick to the genres normally covered.
And Cobra Starship suck so thats not a big issue for me, but why would he have stopped that interview from coming out?
It all boils down to conflict of interest. He never posts in any of the forums. The only time he's active is when he's making his company money.
I also hate Cobra, but the interview took place around the time he "signed" Millionaires, or whatever. People were pissed and Gabe was going to give a lengthy interview. Search "cobragate" and I'm sure you'll find info.
