Steve Albini has slammed Amanda Palmer for saying she couldn't afford to pay back-up musicians (after raising 1.2 million on Kickstarter). Someone may need to get Amanda some aloe for that burn ...
From the BlogI have no fundamental problem with either asking your fans to pay you to make your record or go on tour or play for free in your band or gather at a mud pit downstate and sell meth and blowjobs to each other. I wouldn't stoop to doing any of them myself, but horses for courses. The reason I don't appeal to other people in this manner is that all those things can easily pay for themselves, and I value self-sufficiency and independence, even (or especially) from an audience.

Steve Albini (producer and member of Shellac) recently wrote about an unpleasant encounter he had with the members of Odd Future.
ClipMy band shared an airport shuttle with them in Barcelona. They piled onto the shuttle late, after finally getting corralled by their minder, who was nursing a head wound with an ice bag wrapped in a towel. They piled in, n*****ing everything in sight, motherf***ing the driver, boasting into the air unbidden about getting their d**** sucked and calling everyone in the area a f*****.
