I'm not saying it's not a common sense approach for people to do it. It's obviously easier. I'm not making a judgement on its validity. I'm just saying it's annoying and lazy, which is totally my "in my day, kids did it the right way and earned it" opinion. It just feels slimy to me, whether it's appropriate or not.
It's the guy from Eve6, I think he's probably earned it at this point... This isn't a random up and coming kid...
"Guys i am starting a kickstarter to fund an album.. its called "60 years" its going to be a collection of noises for the next 60 years of just me and my family doing stuff around the house... And with your help.. you the fans.. we will create a masterpiece.. I am asking a very low pledge of 4 million dollars.. Dont worry.. there will be no kids on the album.. I saw what you guys did to eisley.. Thanks again.."
I'm always surprised when people are angry at artists for not wanting to submit to label politics. Is it not better to have the money actually going to the artist and the kind of production they want? I'm always baffled by the idea that it's a crime to want to make a living off of music, or art in general. Everyone wants to do what they love, but for some reason, they don't want others to make money doing what they love.
Also, I'm just gonna throw this out there-- this is way different than the Eisley kickstarter. This is for something to actually be created and done right. Not a cash grab for a tour they booked and then realized they couldn't afford.
