really really good interview. there are so many great points he touched on.
|there's not a whole lot of fun in tearing down something that isn't all that hyped up or popular. i think there's an element in the ap community that just likes to criticize and shoot down anything that's popular by any means necessary|
that made me think of the success of BLG. i feel like when they were smaller, opening for bands like valencia and the audition, just a year ago, no one really had too much to say about them, at least nothing really negative. now that they've gotten "big" they're one of the top bands nominated for an insult to the genre.
|i think a few bands have made statements like this because they're angry and they can't respond to the particular people who are talking shit so they make a blanket statement about the site. unfortunately all the people who support the bands and just want to talk about their music get hurt by these statements since they're part of that community.|
I'm really glad he said that. i had no idea hayley said anything regarding this community and i don't want to be grouped into her stupid assumption. though paramore's a good band, i never comment on them and it's sort of insulting to me as a poster in this community to be grouped into her statement because there are plenty of people who don't say crap about her band. sure i make comments, once in a while, about a band that i don't like...but that's what this place is for--to initiate discussion/commentary and let opinions and stories bounce off of each other. i learn
about music, i recommend
music, and i give
my two cents on it. maybe some people care, maybe some people don't...but i usually feel like i've gotten something
out of this site every day that i come here.
