... and this is what happened.
Sounds like a fairly intense gig experience.
I'm pretty shocked about the mid-gig forced t-shirt sale.
never felt the atmosphere change so quickly at a gig from good times to uh-oh times.
you probibly got better material to write about than you would have got from a blow jobbed out high ghostface anyway. Nice try...
I would much rather read that than the interview.
i felt like louis theroux when the manager was shouting at me. not nice. but also funny!
I want to be a rap singer when I grow up
You're so lucky to get mucked about by Ghostface Killa. I'm well jealous :(
I think The RZA is the only Wu-Tang member who gives serious or straight-forward interviews.
all the interviews i read with GFK, with few exceptions, were reasonably sullen. i thought i could maybe appeal to his sense of heritage and ask him some philosophical/religious questions, but he preferred fellatio, i suppose.
That was really interesting. What a strange night that must've been!
tour managers are usually a bit insane, but it's an insane job as well, especially with those conditions. wouldn't want to be him!
dont blame the tour manager...we have to put up with loads of crap!
just describing what happened. i understand it must be a real challenge to marshall someone like Ghostface, but the tour manager was very unpleasant to me. i've met plenty of tour managers who are lovely and very helpful too!
oh i know man, i was refering to someone else. Loved your story. You probably wouldnt of gained much information from such a thick clown anyway, never really liked Iron Man of Wu Tang.
yeah, see, i've always thought of GFK as being my favourite amongst the clan, and I really love his solo work. in interview, he may not be electrifying, but he seems to have such an open moralistic stance on things. it was a tad disappointing to see him conform to some of the biggest cliches in rock 'n' roll.
and actually turned out to be more insightful and interesting than an actual interview with the man, as long as he allows this sort of set-up to manage him it's rather hard to respect him really. Though I would love to see fey indie boys try this sort of merch selling, imagine The Enemy saying "buy a t-shirt or our boys will fuck you up real bad"?
we want to respect an artist (and, in this case, I totally still do) but for that to happen there needs to be be a two-way stream of respect. Punk artists and the like might purposefully disrespect their audience, but it's inclusive and part of the theatricality. this was just blatant disorganisation and subsequent frustration and retaliation.
Still, a laugh nonetheless.
Interesting read though
And take this as a compliment, as I read on average 3 pieces of writing per week over the 50 word mark
high praise indeed!
apparently Calvin Harris has read this and said it sounds like his dad wrote it. Win?
