Even one small rude comment can open the floodgates of darkness
Many so called “fans of bands and music” should take a second and look at how some “Fans” react at bands that try to grow as an artist by experimenting with music. We see it all the time. A band drops a new album and its sounds different to their older music and many of “these called fans” blast these band for changing. They call them names, they tell them they are over, That they lost all respect for them and many other fucked up things. Art is not meant to sound the same even if it the same band.
Imagine you’re an artist and you put everything you got in a new album for the fans that you have always treated well for years. When your album comes out these same fans pay you by calling you all sorts of names on social media. They call your band a hasbeen. They call your band shitty names. Can you imagine the pressure that may put in the mind of any man or woman. We are constantly promoting to NOT BULLY yet we never take that into consideration when shit calling with our harsh and sometimes unnecessary opinions to musicians. If you are a true fan or if you are one of the many people that over use the “Music is my life” start by showing some respect to those that make music because you never know what that artist is going thru in life and how that one rude thing may trigger some dark thoughts in them. Remember the music industry s a dark place and many of the best songs come from a place or pain.
This is my opinion and only an opinion.
