Statements and Silence are Bigger Than the Sound

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (09/24/08)
With the recent plane crash tragedy that directly impacted members of this music scene, James Montgomery has written about the statements that come from bands in support of tragedy. Are they necessary? He argues yes, in this week's Bigger Than the Sound.

Wait...there's an argument about this? Of course these supportive statements are necessary.

All the talk about necessity is just to cover up that he's essentially calling Tom Delonge an asshole. That's what I got out of it at 03.37 in the morning...

Is he taking a shot at Mark for not issuing a statement as well?

He does say two camps haven't said anything.

I believe Mark and Tom have the right to deal with it in their own way. If they don't want to feed the media anything, that's up to them.

Guy kinda sounded like a douche though. I usually like these articles. This one not so much.

Also, it was completely unnecessary to mention Cobra Starship... in ANY capacity.

Exactly. No matter the circumstances, mentioning...C.S. is just in bad taste.

He mentions at the end of the article that is was odd that there was no mention from two specific bands, implying Angels and Airwaves and +44.

Of COURSE Tom and Mark have the right to ignore media requests for a statement. It makes me angry that he's ever questioning the fact they have yet to say anything about it. "Somewhat coldhearted?" I'm sorry, but that's just way out of line.

Statements are for the media and public. It's not as though Tom and Mark were recently interviewed and refused to speak or were not supportive.

He's merely saying what the thousands upon thousands of fans that have posted comments on myspace-pages, blogs, websites, are all thinking. No big deal.

Well I think the statements in support of Travis are usually from bands/people that can't be with him right now. I'm sure Mark has visited him, and I sure hope Tom has at least called.

Why is this worded as though Travis died in the accident?
