- It's amazing sometimes how some situations can turn. A BW & BK's
writer has made angry a musician (Iced Earth) and published all of
what he said. It resulted in an interview that is not about music at
all, but about 2 different political points of view. To want to
create more damage to this band, the writer has started a thread on
the Braveboard and created a "Controversy". It's damn funny, because
it seems that this is splitting BW's staff. I don't know what was the
deal to humiliate a musician (and his band),but it would be a good
thing that they learn from it. We say in French: "When you spit in
the air, it fall down at your face".
By the way, I found a GOOD magazine with a few ads and where they
write full pages that are ABOUT MUSIC. I like a lot the CLASSIC ROCK
magazine. I have to wear my glasses because it's written very small,
but it's very well done. It's expensive but there's a lot to read, it
helps me with my English. The ISSUE 51 is awesome. Reef, Seb Back,
Motley Crue, Rory Gallagher ..and 30 concept albums that are
explained. It goes with WASP, GENESIS and QUEENRYCHE and a lot more.
I've started to read it in May and I didn't finish! I know that I'm
not English, but there's things very interesting in it ..and no
politics. If I want to know about politics in USA I just have to turn
the TV on.
Posting the whole interview is a noble gesture, but it doesn't change
what was printed or asked. While I certainly understand the general
point-of-view you have, there were statements you made which assumed
a lot. And some would be very insulting to most Americans.As I wrote
in an earlier thread, there are ways of making your point or asking
questions without coming off as biased.And citing your education in
political studies came off as kind of arrogant. I know people with
degrees in English who can't write clearly.Anyway, best to just let
this go. Live and learn.
DAVID PERRI :
i understand where you're coming from on all counts. and i appreciate
that you've been very civil and polite throughout this, even if you
disagree with bwbk's position.i would have loved if this had gone
away months ago. i lived and learned back in january when the
interview actually happened. however, this story has taken on a life
of its own. that's why tim, martin and i decided to post the full
transcription... in the hopes that this book now closes.
- I still like BW&BK. Everyone is entitled to thier opinion. As for the
"political" interview. I found it interesting. I like that they can
talk to musicians about things other than music. It's interesting to
hear what the people think.
